  • ESSAY: My hero, who is a Kentucky farmer

    My Hero, Who Is a Kentucky Farmer

    By:  Cyrus Bivens

    Ryan Bivens is the best farmer in the world. Last year he won the Kentucky Farmer award and won a new truck. This year he has combined more so he can make money and help feed the cows, horses, pigs and other animals. He has two little boys named Cyrus (me) and Avery and my momma named Misty. 

    We try to be the sweetest boys ever. They are the two farmers of all our farmland. They always farm together. Misty brings food to everyone when they are busy.

  • Thank God for our children

    A small town makes big news.

    Indeed, we have.

    Miss Ivy Brown, LaRue County’s very own Miss Kentucky Basketball, has been a welcome blast of fresh air to offset the stale stink of scandal we have seemed to attract in recent weeks.

    Ivy, we are so proud of the way you have conducted yourself on and off the court.

  • Adam Sandidge, sets, breaks record

    Adam Sandidge, LaRue County’s only competitor, won the 1,600 at Friday’s Central Hardin Invitational. He set a school record with a time of 4:26.81.

    Sandidge had taken the lead with about 200 meters to go from Central’s Christian Wright.

    Wright regained the lead as he and Sandidge entered the final 100 meters. 

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks show no mercy

    Peyton Gardner enjoys the rare occasions she gets to see left-handed pitching, and she took full advantage April 8 against visiting 5th Region rival John Hardin.

    The left-handed hitting Gardner fell a home run short of the cycle and drove in four runs to lead the LaRue County Lady Hawks past the Lady Bulldogs, 15-0 in four innings.

    Gardner, a senior center fielder, laced a three-run double to left-center field in the fourth to enforce the mercy rule.

  • More accolades for Ivy Brown, Alexis Brewer

    Miss Kentucky Basketball Ivy Brown, a LaRue County High School senior, has been named to the Herald-Leader’s All-State team.

    The Lexington newspaper said the 6-foot-2 senior is ranked 73rd nationally in the 2014 class by ESPN's HoopsGurlz. LaRue County's career leader in points, rebounds and steals, she led the Lady Hawks to a 24-7 season, averaging 24.4 points and 12.6 rebounds.

    Brown will play for Western Kentucky University next season.

    Her teammate, junior Alexis Brewer, was named to the first team.
