  • LaRue Co. Sheriff receives clean audit

    State Auditor Mike Harmon released the audit of the sheriff’s settlement – 2016 taxes for LaRue County Sheriff Russell McCoy. State law requires the auditor to annually audit the accounts of each county sheriff.

  • Christmas shopping in Hodgenville

    Christmas shoppers are keeping the cash registers ringing at local businesses and showing individual preferences in selection choices as they cross off their gift lists.

    Some of them even buy gifts at Christmas that most seasonal shoppers might find unusual, according to Denise Fowler, who manages Ace Hardware in Lincoln Plaza.

    “I’ve had people buy grills and coolers for others at Christmas time,” she observed. “For someone that likes camping, though, it doesn’t matter when you buy them the gift.”
