  • Magnolia Elementary School may be sold in upcoming months – but the old millstone that adorned the grounds for decades won’t be a selling point.

  • General sign-ups for the Conservation Reserve Program continue through Aug. 27.

    After several years with the grower cooperator being Carlos Tucker, we have changed locations and are working with Kevin McCubbin with our variety plots and field day.

  • If the band’s name – Hooker – has raised your eyebrows, it has done its job.

    “My dad always told me it was like putting ‘free beer’ on the marquee,” said Kyle Williamson, founding member of Hooker.

    Williamson, lead guitarist and vocalist, said the name was meant to draw attention and get people in the door. Once in the door, the reasoning went, the audience would stick around because of the band’s performance.

    The band plays a mix of cover songs and original material.

  • As LaRue County wheat growers select their wheat varieties to seed this fall, they should consider results of the University of Kentucky Small Grain Variety Performance Test. In 2010, 83 wheat varieties from seed companies were evaluated in seven locations across Kentucky. The nearest location to LaRue County was the Stuecker Farm in Hardin County.

  • If you expect a run-of-the-mill sermon when Bro. John Bailey takes to the pulpit, think again.

    Some might even call the former U.S. Army Ranger, who held services at LaRue Baptist Church near Lincoln Farm last Sunday, quite a cut-up when he preaches.

  • Conservation Reserve Program signup

    Signup for the Conservation Reserve Program continues through Aug. 27. Farmers may offer eligible land for CRP’s competitive general signup at the Farm Service Agency.
