  • Success on the hardwood

    Throughout the basketball seasons, I have observed some great games. That was also true this past week and weekend while attending the district basketball games held at Taylor County High School. With both the boys and girls teams having the No. 1 seed in the district standings, they were both able to play Campbellsville on Tuesday of last week, both winning their respective games and guaranteeing their trips to the 5th Region tournament.  

  • Shooting hoops to stop domestic violence

    The Caring Place in Lebanon is sponsoring the March Madness Against Domestic Violence Basketball Tournament, a co-ed tournament for interested elementary school students March 31 - April 1. The tournament will be offered to elementary schools (grades 4-5) in Marion, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties.
    There will also be a silent auction that will be on display the duration of the tournament.
    Each team will be comprised of A, B, and C players from the same school.

  • Fishing season is just around the corner

    Your 2011 Kentucky Hunting/Fishing License expired at midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 29. So, time to renew!
    The Ky. Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is primarily funded by your hunting/fishing license fees, permits you purchase and some money from taxes you pay on hunting and fishing equipment.
    No general tax money goes to the KDFWR. So, in truth, as outdoorsmen and women, we pay our own way.
    I take a certain amount of pride in that!
