  • LaRue falls to North Hardin

    LaRue County’s Lady Hawks fell Dec. 16 to North Hardin’s Lady Trojans, 64-48.

    North maintained the lead throughout the game.

    Freshman guard Presley Brown, who led the Lady Hawks with 17 points, knocked down a 3-pointer before she found senior forward Alyson Yingling for a basket to cut North Hardin’s lead to 31-25 midway through the second quarter.

  • Writer analyzes the language of barns

    The little barn in this picture can be seen from Ky. 470. Travel east on 470 one half mile or less after you cross McDougal Creek. Look to your right and there it is, about 400 feet from the highway.

    I’ll name this little barn “Bantam Barn” because it is so small. It is not far from two other barns I featured some time ago. I dubbed those two old barns Grover and Wilson.

  • Christmas spectacle draws viewers from around county

    The Christmas spirit can surface in unexpected places: shopping, sitting at a red light, eating dinner and driving down the back roads of LaRue County.

    Out on Knob Schoolhouse Road, toward Sonora, you’ll find the Fulkerson house. It’s hard to miss. Covered in multicolored Christmas lights and surrounded by holiday-themed inflatables (including one chilly polar bear who shivers), the house stands out in the daylight. At nighttime, though, it shines.
