  • Eliminate thistles this spring

    Musk or nodding thistle is the most common type of thistle locally. The primary growth period is in the spring and summer. However, most seed germinate in the fall and form a rosette which grows close to the ground, often growing unnoticed until spring. The seed are easily carried by wind and spread to other areas.
    The most important step in long-term control of thistle is to prevent flowering, and the production and spread of new seed. This can be done by mechanical or chemical control.

  • County Clean-up Days set for March 23-24

    LaRue County Clean-up Days will be held March 23-24 at the county maintenance garage across from LaRue County Middle School.
    The event is held in conjunction with Commonwealth Cleanup Week, an annual weeklong event implemented by the Energy and Environment Cabinet, which aims to provide citizens the opportunity to spruce up just in time for the spring season.
    Last year during the Commonwealth Cleanup week, 219 bags of litter, 69 batteries, 2,288 tons of trash, 4.8 tons of steel and 303 pounds of other metals were collected in LaRue County alone.

  • Lady Hawks track team begins season with small goals

    Like the sage who said a 1,000-mile journey begins with a single step, Lady Hawks girls’ track coach Laura Kudrna is counting on her charges attaining small goals that will enable them to meet larger ones.
    “Our goal for the season is to beat our previous time,” said the Hodgenville Elementary School fifth-grade teacher in her second year as coach. “I don’t care if it’s a 10th of a second off the previous time; every little bit helps and counts.”

  • Hawks prepare to multi-task as track season opens

    Multi-tasking will be the major descriptor of this season’s Hawks boys track team under new coach Drew Simpson.
    “The number of students we have on the team is our strength and weakness,” said Simpson, who substitute teaches for the LaRue County school system. “We have a small high school team and because of that all of my athletes have to compete in four events.”
    Perhaps because of the few number of athletes, however, he has found a more personal team, one with heart and a lot of determination, he said.

  • Extension Expo draws more than 900

    A record-setting crowd attended the 30th annual Extension Expo Saturday.
    About 968 people visited the 70-or-so booths set up in the LaRue County High School gym, according to the LaRue County Cooperative Extension Office.
    “The largest crowd we had previously was about 800,” said Office Assistant Sue Ann McCandless.
    The Extension staff had an idea the Expo might turn into a bustling event when the first visitors arrived about 9 a.m. – an hour before booths were scheduled to open.
