  • DUI CASE: Judge overrules some motions, to consider others

    Several motions in Sam Sanders’ DUI case were overruled Thursday in LaRue District Court by Special Judge Lisa P. Jones.

    Doug Hubbard, Sanders’ attorney, had asked for the case against the school superintendent to be dismissed due to the release by police of a dash cam video. The tape was shown by several TV stations.

    Judge Jones took the request under submission and will make a written ruling.

    Two vehicles collided Monday at the intersection of Ky. 210 and Ky. 470. Just before 4 p.m., a 2011 Freightliner M2 Conventional, driven by Timothy A. Dennie, 39, of Waddy, was traveling east on Ky. 470. The Freightliner, owned by Penske Truck Leasing of Louisville, pulled into the path of a 2009 Toyota Venza driven by Rebecca M. Ohanian-Samerian of Ekron. The Venza, traveling north on Ky. 210, was struck in the left side. Both drivers refused medical transport. LaRue County Deputy Robby Brownfield, pictured, investigated.

  • Little Merchants: Newspaper carriers featured in new book

    About 50 years ago, Grant Wise was hired at his first job.

    He was only 11, but he handled duties that would make some grownups cry in protest.

    Up at 3 a.m., seven days a week, he pedaled his bicycle, while hefting a heavy canvas bag, for miles through the dark streets of Hodgenville – no matter the weather. He retraced his route in the afternoon.

    He was a newspaper boy.

    Wise’s story, along with several others, is included in Little Merchants: The Golden Era of Youth Delivering Newspapers, a book by Sandra L. Walker.

  • Superintendent evaluation is 'lowest in 12 years'

    The LaRue County School Board on Monday shared the results of Superintendent Sam Sanders’ annual evaluation.

    The board, at its regular meeting, released the evaluation in a PowerPoint presentation before adjourning to a closed session to discuss the details with Sanders.

    “It gives board members an opportunity to make comments and look at the job as a whole. It tells the superintendent what part we think he’s excelling in and parts we think he needs work,” said Board Chair Michael Hornback.

  • UNSEALED: prosecutors ask for change of venue in criminal case as city hall love letters come to light

    Prosecutors in the criminal case against former mayor Terry L. Cruse and former city clerk MaDonna Hornback have requested a change of venue.

    The petition, filed Monday in LaRue Circuit Court, says extensive media coverage over the last seven months – including stories in The LaRue County Herald News and The News-Enterprise, radio and television stations – has prohibited the state from empanelling a fair and impartial jury. Cruse also took out political advertisements in The Herald News outlining his defense during his run for sheriff.
