  • Devers steps into character for many different roles

    LaRue County Community Education director Vicki Devers carries many aliases in her work.
    Depending on the time of the year and the instructional unit students are in, she may appear as Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat, Johnny Appleseed or even Mother Goose.
    “I even appeared one time as the Easter Bunny, but the mask was so tight against my face I almost smothered, so I let the bunny go,” said Devers who has 19 years’ experience with the LaRue County School District.

  • Coaches Bell and Holloway are mainstays of soccer program

    Born in Norton, a suburb of Stockton, Bell grew up playing on street leagues.
    “Every street in the city had its own team,” the coach, who lives on “the LaRue County side of Sonora,” said. “It was a goal for a team to be named King of the Street.”

  • Hawks fall in tourney

    The mission on Sunday was accomplished by the Bullitt East boys’ soccer team – win and advance.

    Keeping the ball on the LaRue County side of the field, Bullitt East kept the pressure on keeper Ryan Abell.
     Raymundo Perez slipped the ball past keeper Reese Milburn for the only Hawk score of the day.
