  • WRESTLING: Shawn Hull looks for...

    Knowing this was his final season as a LaRue County wrestler, senior Shawn Hull wanted to put everything on the line.

    Hull increased his workout regimen and attended several wrestling camps over the summer to get better.

    Hull’s improved work ethic has led him to a 33-1 record – his only loss came in December’s Smoky Mountain Duals in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. – and the No. 1 ranking at 160 pounds by kentuckywrestling.com entering Saturday’s Region 2 Tournament in Danville.

  • New fishing license year begins...

     The new year for fishing licenses begins March 1.

    This coming year presents some new opportunities to catch rainbow trout, blue catfish, redear sunfish, also known as shellcrackers and white crappie.

    Black crappie now dominate the population in Taylorsville Lake, and a good spawn last year should lead to good fishing for blacks in the coming years. Also, three years of white crappie stockings should lead to great fishing this spring.
