  • Sonora Days activities today include parade

    Sonora will celebrate its history and look forward to its future during Sonora Days from Friday through Sunday.

    The event, which is organized by the Sonora Merchants, is themed “Past, Present, Future.”

    It features three collages.

  • Building the Bell
  • Children prove fond of swamp things and creepy crawlies

    A classroom pet doesn't have to be cuddly for children to form a bond with it and learn from it.

    Jennifer Arnold, a teacher at Creekside Elementary School in Sonora, has a pet most people would like to stay away from. This is her first year bringing him to her preschool class but she has had Savannah, the tarantula, for four years.

    The spider hangs out in the class science center where the children can see her and look at her closely with magnifying glasses. There is a book in the center about spiders they can look through while watching her.

    When former district judge James Bondurant was a young man, he had two main goals: to marry the prettiest girl on earth and to become a country lawyer.

    The 81-year-old judge who has spent most of his life as a LaRue County resident, says he has accomplished both. He found the prettiest girl in the former Kaye Keyes of Lexington, whom he married in 1952. And, before becoming a judge, he practiced law in Hardin and LaRue counties, fulfilling his second goal.

  • Glendale Christian Church broken into again

    Glendale Christian Church security cameras caught the same man ransacking the building for what the congregation believes is the fourth time in the last two years early Monday morning.

    Despite the video footage and police investigations, the suspect is at-large, Brother Mike Bell said.

    “We got him. We know what he looks like, but we can’t catch him,” Bell said.

    This time the suspect was in the church between 12:30 and 3 a.m. Monday, he said.

    If you know a preschooler you probably know about the “Wonder Pets.” It’s a program that follows Linny the Guinea Pig, Ming-Ming the Duck and Tuck the Turtle, all classroom pets, on adventures after the children have left the school. They work together to help rescue animals in crisis.

  • Well-defined rules vital to unification debate

    Beginning this week, Hardin County United will make formal presentations to local governments on the subject of unification. The informal organization’s volunteer members also have about two dozen presentations scheduled before civic clubs and community organizations.

    The challenge before them is significant. It was sharply defined when the Radcliff City Council took a stand against the idea before an appointment could be scheduled for a formal presentation.

    It appears unity can be a divisive topic.
