  • Greensburg to unveil Lincoln historical marker

    A historical marker commemorating the life of an early 19th century educator who was a longtime friend of Abraham Lincoln will be unveiled next week in Greensburg.

    The Kentucky Historical Society says the marker is in honor of William Mentor Graham, who was born in Green County and taught at Greensburg Academy before moving to Illinois. There he taught Lincoln arithmetic and grammar, and Lincoln lived with Graham for six months in 1833.

    The ceremony is at 1 p.m. CDT Oct. 24 at 101 S. Second St. in Greensburg.

  • Fraser, Thomas shine at WKU tournament

    The Western Kentucky University forensics team traveled to Warrensburg, Missouri; Nashville, Tennessee; and Muncie, Indiana, to take part in six tournaments the weekend of Oct. 18-19.

    Results from the 43rd annual Ball State/Illinois State “Age of Aquarius” Swing Tournament are as follows:

  • School board hears students’ success stories

    The LaRue County Board of Education met Monday evening. During the meeting, the board was shown a program by the LaRue County High School Speech and Debate Team. The presentation was made by the freshmen, sophomores and juniors of the team.

    Coach Katy Cecil said she chose the students so the board could see the future of the team, since seniors like Brian Anderson will be moving on at the end of the year.

  • St. Ann’s pride shows in current and past students

    “What kind of school is St. Ann?” Mrs. Diane Gant asked student Cole Brady, the school’s lone kindergartener.

    Brady smiled and said, “Best.”

    The small Howardstown school is easy to miss, if you don’t know what to look for. There are no signs announcing its presence and from the road, it looks like any other building. A fenced-in playground sits behind the schoolhouse, the only sign that children are inside.

  • Breast Cancer Awareness Truck and Tractor Pull

    The third annual Burger King Breast Cancer Awareness Truck and Tractor pull was Oct. 17-18.

    The event was held again this year to bring awareness and a fundraiser for cancer research. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Louisville foundation.

    The two-night event attracted pullers from as far as California to hometown pullers from the Hardin County area.

  • Lady Hawks advance in Region, fall to Panthers

    18th District Semifinal

    Lady Hawks 4, Hart 3 (4-1 PKs)

    The Lady Hawks Soccer team earned a hard-fought victory Thursday night in Lebanon as they outlasted the determined Lady Raiders of Hart County. At the end of regulation the score was tied 3-3. After two five-minute overtimes the score remained tied.

    The always entertaining and pressure-packed penalty kicks decided the winner. However, the most exciting part of the game took place with 19 seconds remaining in the game.

  • Hawks fall short of goal

    18th District Semifinal

    LaRue 3, Marion 2

    The Hawks got off to a slow start against host Marion County Tuesday partly due to the very wet and soft field conditions, which proved to be an equalizer for both teams. Marion County put two goals on the board before the Hawks got going.

    Senior Miguel Martinez scored a key goal for the Hawks which proved to be the jump start needed.

    “That was an important goal for our team which seemed to be rather flat from the start,” said Head Coach Derek Bell.
