  • Harvest season comes again

    Steve LaRue

    Groundhog Hill

    August, named in honor of the deified Roman Emperor Augustus, is the month of harvest.

    This month at Groundhog Hill, I hope to harvest Peruvian purple corn, late top crop green beans, a few Rutgers and Cherokee purple tomatoes, sunflowers, cantaloupes, radishes, and of course, zinnias.

    So far, the purple corn is taking its own (and hopefully, sweet) time. The other day, I urged the now-gigantic stalks in both English and in Spanish to hurry up and to produce some bloody corn.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Supply closet a success

  • Internship brought writer out of her shell

    When I first applied for an internship through the Kentucky Press Association, I was not sure of what all it would entail. Obviously, I assumed that I would be writing, but even though I have been writing all my life and have taken journalism classes, it would’ve been wrong for me to call myself a journalist, because, frankly, I was not.

  • Hardin Memorial has worked to improve

    Thank you for the opportunity to share more about our vision of the future of Hardin Memorial Health (HMH). Our current construction of private rooms is only one part of an exciting, comprehensive vision positioning HMH for the future. Three years ago a strategic planning committee, comprised of Board members, physicians, community leaders, and hospital staff began a process that culminated in the development of a long-range strategic plan for HMH, which was unanimously approved by all members of the Board.

  • It's good to be in LaRue

    It’s been a very long week. On Friday, I lived in Louisville and worked in Eminence. Now, on Monday, I live in Campbellsville and work here in Hodgenville. Life is crazy and sometimes moves at a speed that is maybe just a little uncomfortable for me.

    My name is Will Phillips and I’m the new reporter here at The LaRue County Herald News.

  • It's time for Zinnia Fest at the hill; LaRue invites all to come see the vivid colors in his garden

    Next to Arbor Day, I don’t know of a holiday more exciting than the one that is fast approaching.

    This extra-special day comes around only once per year and is smack dab in the middle of the summer. Friends and family gather to celebrate a favorite flower that makes all of our spot of garden just a little more beautiful: Zinnia Fest.

    The second annual Zinnia Fest is 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 26, at Groundhog Hill.

    Grab your gardening scissors, a pail of water and cut a colorful bouquet for your Sunday lunch table.

  • Sports, physical activity and your child

    The beginning of a new school year is just around the corner. The new start provides an opportunity for your child to participate in all kinds of extracurricular activities, some of which include sports.

  • Looking for stories of the dog days of summer

    My husband Bud and I picked blackberries Saturday at the old Pearman place on Leafdale Road (that’s the LaRue County Environmental Education and Research Center for non-natives).

    I asked him if he wanted us to pick in different locations – or if he wanted me to pick beside him so we could chat. He said it was up to me – which is Bud lingo for “can’t pick no blackberries if a woman is yakking at me.” So, he went his way and I went mine.

    That gave me lots of time to think about stuff.
