  • Pool open for summer

    The LaRue County Park and Recreation swimming pool opened Saturday, thanks to the assistance of city workers.

    Hodgenville firefighters loaned hoses to fill the pool with water from a city hydrant; workers debated who would remove three frogs that took up residence in the pool over the winter.
