  • Breaking Bread Bakery: Made from scratch

     The sweet smell of baking bread, cakes, cookies and muffins has been wafting from a small shop on South Walters Street since February. The “Breaking Bread Bakery” (a not-so-subtle reference to the Bible) sells bread and other goods – all made from scratch.

    For lunch, they also offer a bag lunch, which includes a sandwich (made with their own bread), chips, and a soda.

    Fran Dowell of Magnolia is the owner. She bakes everything herself and says that since it opened, the bakery has been “pretty steady but not overwhelming.”

  • Illegally placed signs will be removed

     Residents, business operators and property owners along US and KY routes are reminded Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews have authority and will remove political signs along state maintained right-of-way areas.

    Additionally, KYTC officials take this opportunity to remind everyone no yard sale, auction, business or any other sign is allowed on state maintained right-of-way areas. Such signs must be placed beyond right-of-way limits. Right-of-way fence is included in this restriction. On roads with a right-of-way fence, no signs may be attached.

  • Hawk baseball has a bright future

     Leading into the 2014 baseball campaign, Hawks’ second-year head coach Eric Allen knew he would have a challenge replacing six seniors with a young group of players coming up. This was nothing new. When he acquired the job in 2013, he had to replace eight seniors.

    Junior Koy Lindsey and freshman Cameron Dawson were the only full-time starters from the 2013 squad, while sophomore Colby Skaggs and senior Dylon Hedgespeth also saw action at the varsity level.  

  • Lady Hawks end season as District runners-up

     The Lady Hawks became the 18th District runners-up Tuesday, falling 8-7 to the top-seeded Green County Lady Dragons in the championship game.

    The Lady Hawks held a four-run lead in the seventh inning – but Green County cut the lead to two against junior starting pitcher Emillee Cundiff.

    Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell called on senior Brigitte Skaggs to close it out.

    Green County drew two bases-loaded walks off Skaggs to rally for an 8-7 win at Green County American Legion Park.

  • Annual golf tournament honors General Bob Cundiff

     About 100 people competed Monday in the annual General Bob Cundiff Golf Tournament at the LaRue County Golf Course near Buffalo. 

    The annual Memorial Day event, named in honor of Brigadier General (Ret.) Robert W. Cundiff of Hodgenville, began a year after Cundiff’s death in 2005.

    Organizers were pleased with the attendance.

    “This is the best turnout we’ve had by far,” said Keith Bault, longtime member of the golf course. “We usually have about 60.”
