  • LaRue chamber welcomes new executive director

    Krista Levee, the new executive director of the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce, is no stranger to the county – or the state.

    Levee lived in LaRue County almost seven years before moving because of her husband’s job change. They were gone four years before returning to the area.

    “Now we’re back and it’s like coming home,” said Levee, a Hopkins County native. “It’s good to be back in a small town where you know everybody.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: North Hardin hosts Grayson County on Friday in district opener (09/20)

    The North Hardin Trojans don’t have time to dwell on the one that got away, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    The Trojans dominated the Central Hardin Bruins, racking up 519 yards of total offense, but mistakes – 11 penalties and four turnovers – cost them a shot at a victory. Instead of being 3-1, the Trojans are 2-2 after a 24-21 loss.

    North Hardin has no time to mope around about the defeat as the undefeated and 12th-ranked Grayson County Cougars come to Ray Story Stadium in Radcliff on Friday. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Central Hardin rolls past North Hardin (09/20)

    Central Hardin’s Savannah Haberman spends most of her time stopping goals, not setting them up.

    So when coach Hal Bender lets the Lady Bruins’ star senior keeper out of the net to play the field, she wants to make the most of it.

    Playing 70 of the 80 minutes in the net, Haberman capped off her team’s high-scoring night Wednesday by assisting Sidney Pickman on the reserve junior forward’s first career goal as No. 20 Central Hardin rolled past the rusty and weary North Hardin Lady Trojans, 8-0.
