  • The importance of wrestling ... and other things

    When my son was a little guy, he wanted, more than anything, to play basketball.
    He practiced for hours and turned into a pretty good ball handler and a consistent shooter. It was also obvious that he was not going to inherit the 6-feet 1-inch gene from the taller members of the family. It looked like he was going to stand about 5-feet tall (he finally reached a whopping 5-feet 5-inches) – and I knew what that meant for a basketball player.

  • School board: RC Cola wins bid

    RC Cola will again be the drink of choice for LaRue County Schools during the upcoming year.
    The LaRue County School Board decided at its April 20 meeting to award the beverage contract to RC, rather than its larger competitor, Pepsi.
    At the March meeting, board members considered a request by the district’s principals to award the bid to Pepsico for July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2018. The consensus was that Pepsi products would sell better.

  • Democratic primary: Two candidates face off for Secretary of State

    Alison Lundergan Grimes became well known during her 2011 campaign for Kentucky Secretary of State because of the TV ads starring her adorable grandmothers, who urged voters to support their granddaughter. But this campaign is different, as both have since died.
    Thelma Lundergan McHugh, Grimes paternal grandmother, died in June 2012 while Elsie Case, her maternal grandmother, died just last week, on April 23.
