  • LaRue County marching band hoping to be 'Star' in contests

    The LaRue County Band of Hawks have learned about leadership along with learning notes.

  • USPS is a service, not a business

    For one dollar you can send a birthday card to Uncle Moosejaw in Alaska and an anniversary card to Aunt Aloha in Hawaii and the post office will give you back 12 cents in change.
