    Elizabeth Bell will retire July 1 after having served 10 years as a bus monitor for the LaRue County School System.

  • Needle cast causing skimpy spruce trees

    By far, the number one call I’ve gotten here at the LaRue County Extension Office over the last 2-3 months has been homeowners concerned about their Spruce trees. A tree is a long term investment, and when you plant a tree, you watch it grow over the years and develop into something beautiful that provides you with a windbreak, shade, etc. It’s very disheartening when a tree that you planted 20 years ago, that has become a focal point in the landscape, turns into an eyesore practically overnight. 

  • Local police participate in “Click It or Ticket”

  • REAL ID a real solution for Kentuckians

    In 2005, Congress enacted legislation enhancing national security by adding new requirements for state driver’s licenses and other official ID cards. In an effort to comply with the standards, the General Assembly passed House Bill 410 this session, also known as REAL ID.

    While there has been some concern over the federal requirements, the measure recently passed in Kentucky complies with federal standards while making the new travel ID voluntary, and I want to ensure every citizen of House District 24 is informed on this new policy.
