  • Hodgenville News - September 20, 2017

    Thought for the week: Life is boring if you don’t laugh, Joke around and be a little crazy every now and then. At the end of the day, it’s about being happy.

    The LaRue County Hawks Football team is off to great start this season with a 5-0 record. Keep up good work. The weather has been nice couple past days. I so wanted to work in flower bed, but didn’t want to stir up my allergies again. It will have to wait a few more days and I am hoping weeds will stop growing.
