  • Spring planting catching up, not completed

    A few dry days last week allowed farmers to get a lot of corn planted.

    It will take another dry week for most area farmers to plant the rest of their corn, said Matt Adams, an extension agent for agricultural and natural resources with the Hardin County office.

    Many farmers likely planted 40 to 50 percent of their corn last week. Some also began planting soybeans then, he said.

  • Light day expected at the polls

    Voters can expect little if no wait at the polls today as Kentucky's major political parties select their nominees.

    No local races or issues are on the ballot.

    "Every precinct will have the same ballot," County Clerk Kenny Tabb said. "That's quite rare."

    The sophomore pinch hitter cleared the bases with a double in the bottom of the sixth as the Lady Bruins rallied past the Louisville Butler Bearettes, 5-2.

    Seniors Ashley Hughes and Jordan Daniel had two hits each for Central Hardin (27-4), winner of seven straight. Eighth-grader Kelsey McGuffin had a hit, stole a base and scored.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Hawks hold off E'town, 6-5 (5/17)

    When LaRue County junior Kyle Meredith scored in the top of the seventh, it looked like an inconsequential run at the time.

    But it turned out to be the difference in LaRue County’s 6-5 victory over the Elizabethtown Panthers in a battle of 5th Region teams Monday night at Panther Baseball Park.

    “That’s playing heads up baseball,” LaRue County coach Chris Price said. “Kyle’s one of our best base runners. He read it well.”
