  • Thank God for our children

    A small town makes big news.

    Indeed, we have.

    Miss Ivy Brown, LaRue County’s very own Miss Kentucky Basketball, has been a welcome blast of fresh air to offset the stale stink of scandal we have seemed to attract in recent weeks.

    Ivy, we are so proud of the way you have conducted yourself on and off the court.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks show no mercy

    Peyton Gardner enjoys the rare occasions she gets to see left-handed pitching, and she took full advantage April 8 against visiting 5th Region rival John Hardin.

    The left-handed hitting Gardner fell a home run short of the cycle and drove in four runs to lead the LaRue County Lady Hawks past the Lady Bulldogs, 15-0 in four innings.

    Gardner, a senior center fielder, laced a three-run double to left-center field in the fourth to enforce the mercy rule.

  • More accolades for Ivy Brown, Alexis Brewer

    Brown will play for Western Kentucky University next season.

    Her teammate, junior Alexis Brewer, was named to the first team.

    Lindsey went 3-for-4, while Cottrell and Cecil combined to go 3-for-6. Sophomore Colby Skaggs went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two runs for LaRue County (4-9), which won for the first time since March 26.

  • Superintendent suspended for 30 days

    The LaRue County School Board voted Monday to suspend Superintendent Sam Sanders for 30 days without pay.

    He has pleaded not guilty and his case is progressing through the court system.

    The board will also be looking at Sanders' contract which expires in July.
