  • Hawks fall in District play

     Monday night had a similar feeling to one year ago, but unfortunately for the LaRue County Hawks, the ending wasn’t nearly as fulfilling.

    Trailing third-seeded Hart County by a run in the bottom of the seventh inning, second-seeded LaRue County put two on with two out, but freshman Cameron Dawson’s fly ball was caught in deep center field for the final out to give the Raiders a 4-3 victory in the 18th District Tournament semifinals at Green County American Legion Park.

  • Lady Hawks break Hart in district opener

     The LaRue County Lady Hawks won their semifinal Monday in the 18th District Softball Tournament. They defeated the third-seeded Hart County Lady Raiders, 13-8, at Green County.

    Senior Courtney Johnson hit a two-run home run and drove in four runs.

    “We knew this could be our last game,” Johnson said. “As seniors, we want to play out our season as long as we can. We didn’t want it to end tonight.”

    Thanks in part to Johnson, it didn’t.

  • Primary winners: McCoy, Turner, Williamson, Lee

    Several races were decided in Tuesday’s Primary Election. Fewer than half (43.1 percent) of the county’s registered voters turned out at the 12 precincts.

    In one of the closest races, Kyle Williamson edged Thomas “Tom” Claycomb for county attorney (1,806 to 1,438). There is no Republican candidate, so Williamson will take office in January.

    Williamson said he and Claycomb “have been friends a long time and will continue to be.”

  • COLUMN: Audiobooks added to children's library

     I can remember going to the LaRue County Public Library as a child. A very fond memory of mine was going to the rack that housed the baggies with a book and a cassette of that book. I would flip through them until I found one that caught my eye and excitedly rush to Mrs. Kathy to check me out.
