A local man was arrested for meth possession last Tuesday while police responded to a residence to serve a burglary warrant.
According to the LaRue County Sheriff’s Office, they initially responded to a residence on New Jackson Highway to serve a burglary warrant on Caitlin Veirs, 23, of Sonora. Veirs was arrested in connection with a burglary that occurred on Old Elizabethtown Road in Hodgenville last month.
The 2016-17 school year is off to a tremendous start. I want to thank each LaRue County Schools student, parent, teacher, staff member and volunteer for their commitment to what is sure to be a successful year. As a parent and a business owner, I am honored to serve as a member of the LCS Board of Education.
It was a slim agenda at the monthly LaRue County School Board meeting Monday night as the board approved several Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract (GESC) payments and the second reading of the special education policy and procedures.
The board unanimously approved the payments of $92,261 to Harshaw Trane, $1,278,939.60 to Trane U.S. Inc and $416,080 to Trane U.S. Inc.
Before the mid-1970s, special education in our country’s public schools was all but non-existent. Many students were either outright denied the opportunity to attend because of their disability or they received inferior instruction if they were able to enroll.
That thankfully began to change in 1975, when Congress passed the Education for All Handicapped Children Act and required each state to provide appropriate services in this critical area.
Preschool children ages 2-4 and their parents are invited to Wee Time, where preschool children can become familiar with the school they will attend.
