    (StatePoint) When it’s time for the kids to head back to school, they’ll often find themselves buried in binders, folders and enough loose-leaf paper to transcribe “War and Peace.” Your son or daughter might be able to keep these supplies neat and tidy for a couple of days, maybe even a week or two, but eventually, organization is going to fall by the wayside.

  • 911 service 'hit or miss'

    911 service in LaRue County has been partially restored.
