    Former Lady Hawks softball standout Tesha Paysen has made the University of Louisville's softball squad after trying out last week.

    Paysen set a school record for stolen bases last season with 86 and was named to the Fifth Region All Tournament team. During the summer, she was also named to the Kentucky All-State Softball's Class 2-A first team.

  • 5-year-old Hazle building dispute may end soon

    Businessman Charles “Red” Hazle told Hodgenville City Council last week he would need 60 more days to complete work on a concrete block building that has been the bane of two administrations.

    City council gave him 30.

    Hazle was first ordered to “fix or raze” the building at the corner of Water Street and North Walters Avenue in 2003 when Roger Truitt was mayor. The building still stood when Terry Cruse was elected mayor two years ago. After five years of legal wrangling and work extensions granted, there may soon be an end to the issue.
