  • Door-to-door scammers hit Upton area

    The Better Business Bureau has received reports of two men selling “Sylvan” books door-to-door in Hardin County. The men are wearing name tags to look like official representatives of Sylvan Learning Center of Elizabethtown and one even told a consumer he was “an exchange student from Florida,” trying to legitimize sales.

    The books are being sold for $130 with the promise of being hand-delivered in August. Sylvan is in no way affiliated with these men and doesn’t sell books door-to-door at any time.

  • Tuition raised at Kentucky community colleges

    Kentucky community colleges are looking for a tuition increase to offset a portion of a budget gap.

    Tuition rates for new students to Elizabethtown Community and Technical College will increase to $135 per credit hour from $130.

    The Board of Regents for the Kentucky Community and Technical College System approved the rate increases for the colleges as part of the 2011-12 budget last week.

    The new tuition rate meets the cap allowed for KCTCS tuition for the year, set by the Council on Postsecondary Education at a meeting in April.

  • Trial delayed in stabbing case

    The trial has been delayed for a man suspected in the stabbing death of a New Haven man Dec. 2, 2010.

    Willett's pretrial conference was set for June 17 but was delayed until Oct. 14 to allow the defense attorney, Stephen Wright of Bullitt County, more time to prepare for the trial, according to Commonwealth's Attorney Terry Geoghegan.

  • COLUMN: Joining the Herald News' staff led to wonderful and stinky situations

    It’s been a little over a year since I started work at The LaRue County Herald News and it still feels new – which is a good thing. The job never gets boring and just when it seems like things are falling routine – something will come up.

  • PHOTO: Original Creekfront restroom plans flushed

    Workers constructed the block walls of the new restrooms at Creekfront Park last week. General contractor Joe Pearman said there is a slight change to the design as reported in last week’s Herald News. Stone will not be placed on the exterior walls due to fear that water could seep inside the seams during flooding. Decorative concrete blocks are being used instead. The two-staller should be complete in about six weeks.
