  • Schools brace for cuts to SEEK funding

    School districts will experience a midyear cut to their Support Education Excellence in Kentucky, or SEEK, funding beginning next year.

    LaRue County Schools will lose $37,715, according to superintendent Sam Sanders. According to the Kentucky Department of Education, the district will still receive $10,972,270.

  • God will provide a way

    Christmas is over. The tree may still be up, but no gifts are underneath. The visiting family members are back home. Life is back to normal.

    Consider Mary and Joseph – the long trip, no room when they reached their destination, the birth of the baby, the excitement of the angel choir and the visit of the shepherds. There must have been let down for them. Nothing would ever be the same again.

    Superintendent Sam Sanders said the existing quarry tile will be removed.
