  • LaRue joins state's online warrant system

    Landmark News Service
    LaRue County law enforcement and court officials last week attended classes to learn about the new state electronic warrant system.
    The eWarrants, which are available online, “do away with all paper warrants that had to be mailed,” according to Acting Chief Steve Johnson of Hodgenville City Police.
    The network allows officers to electronically file complaints, which can be viewed and signed by judges. Officers can act immediately in making an arrest rather than waiting hours or days.

    Landmark News Service
    Hodgenville’s Main Street/Renaissance organization will be self-funded at least until its current contract with the state is renewed.
    Mayor Terry Cruse told members of Hodgenville City Council that he wants the volunteer group to “become more self-sufficient.” He said the city would not pay the agreed-upon amount of $1,250 monthly to Main Street until its recertification contract is signed.
    And that could take at least three months, according to Director Celia McDonald.

    Yet Parrett said he sees some advantages to having a split majority, with Democrats possessing power of the House.

  • A Dash of Class: I promise to never experiment with hamburger again

    In the column two weeks ago, two ingredients were left without measurements for the White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies. There should be 1/3 c. Splenda and 2/3 c. white chocolate chips.

    My third resolution at the end of 2010 was to try new recipes. My husband reminded me of a funny story that happened when we were first married. We went in with my mom and bought a steer for half the beef cuts. We had a lot of hamburger in the freezer and we got really tired of eating hamburgers, Sloppy Joe’s and tater tot casserole.
