  • Couple clobbers fire at former homestead

    Sarah Stoeckel and her husband Paul decided to take a relaxing walk last week on one of the paths at the LaRue County Environmental, Education and Research Center on Leafdale Road.

    Their fun turned into panic when they saw plumes of smoke rising from a nearby field. Sarah, who was familiar with the area, knew it would quickly reach the woods. The couple grabbed bottles of water from their SUV and poured it on the rapidly-spreading flames. When they used it all, they began stomping out the fire.

  • City to bid on fire truck

    Hodgenville City Council, meeting Thursday in a special-called meeting, gave Mayor Kenny DeVore the right to negotiate the price of a fire truck.

    Hodgenville Fire Chief Wally Sparks has inspected the truck in question – a 1990 model with a 95-foot floating bucket (it stays level). It has a 300-gallon water tank and will seat seven people – including the driver.

    “It fits our needs and the required reach we need,” said DeVore.

    The truck has 3,218 hours and 32,626 miles – and is garage-kept.

  • Hawks hold off Lakers for 14-10 win

    After six games in the books the LaRue County Football team has established an identity. They are young, energetic, and have a blue collar work ethic. All six games have proven that these Hawks are competitive and desire to get better each week.

    Last Friday the Hawks traveled to Russell Springs to battle the Lakers of Russell County who were seeking their first win of the season on homecoming night.

    It was a shaky start to what seemed like a beautiful night for football. The very first possessions for each team resulted in a turnover.

  • Dawson wins 5th Region Golf Tourney, advances to State

    LaRue County sophomore Cameron Dawson finished first out of 93 golfers Tuesday to capture the 5th Region Golf Tourney at Elizabethtown Country Club with an even par 72. In 2013 he walked away with a region runner-up at South Park Golf Course in Louisville, therefore he was one of six individuals expected to win this year’s tourney.

    Cameron is the first LaRue County golfer to win the region since Chad Hines did it in 1997. With the tournament win, Dawson qualified for the KHSAA State Golf Tourney in back-to-back seasons.
