  • Our work makes a difference

    At their core, the major American holidays are bound by a common thread: They remind us of who we are and what we stand for, each and every year.
    While the Fourth of July celebrates our founding and freedom, Memorial Day and Veterans Day call on us never to forget the high price paid for those enduring gifts. Thanksgiving gives us a moment among loved ones to appreciate the many good things in our lives, and on Labor Day, which arrives this weekend, we pay tribute to the hard work that made our nation what it is today.

  • When in doubt, use the money stroke

    It was almost the end of December when we traveled from Bladon Springs, Alabama to Gulf Shores. My wife, Emily, and I had landed a park hosting job almost by accident, and we were excited. We had just spent our first full month in our RV. Bladon Springs, though a nice place for us to stay, had been too secluded. Too lonely. And at times, too eerie.
    The winter was getting colder, but we thought going further south would change all that.
    It didn’t.

  • Boys soccer: Knights shut out twice this week

    The Marion County Knights were in action at the Bardstown Tigers on Aug. 23, but tied in the second straight game, this time playing to a 2-2 draw.

  • Little libraries all over Lebanon

    Looking for something new to read? Now there’s an opportunity to pick up a new book just about anywhere you go in Lebanon. In an effort to promote reading and literacy, Joy Global has teamed up with Little Free Library to set up the small stands throughout the city.
    The way it works is if you see a library, take a look at the selection. If you see something you like, take it and read it. When you’re finished with the book, you can either let someone else borrow it, or return it to a Little Free Library. You can even leave other books there as well.

  • Tee Time: Do you know the strongest part of your game?

    By Dennis George

    During my time as the news director for WOKH-FM and WLSK-FM, I spent a lot of time talking to former Bardstown police officer Tom Roby.
    But not all of it was about news items.
    We also talked about everything golf.
    Tom told me that he charted every round of golf that he played, including keeping statistics on his performance.

  • For the love of cooking

    The stress of being a chef in a restaurant can be overwhelming. The stress of managing a restaurant can also be overwhelming. Doing both at the same time? Some might tell you it’s insanity. But really, it just takes a special kind of person to do both. For Shiner’s Restaurant, that person is Joe Parks.
    His love of food came about when he was just a small child.

  • FOOTBALL: Mistakes plague Knights in loss to E’town

    Coming off a dominating performance against the Nelson County Cardinals to open the season, the Marion County Knights looked to notch a win against the Elizabethtown Tigers on Aug. 26, but fell 41-6.
    Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon explained his team came out with good energy to start but failed to take advantage of several opportunities.
    "When you give a good team like E'town turnovers and fail to take advantage of opportunities, they're going to make you pay," Harmon said.

  • From Fiji with love

    Nicole Suniula looked down at her old Bible. It had been around the world with her for many trips and throughout many years. It was held loosely together by duct tape. Some of the pages from Revelation were missing. But there was a short, hand-written note in the front. She’d written it more than 15 years ago. It read: “The world is waiting for me, I responded to His call, Feb. 24, 2001.”

  • Let’s go to the movies

    East Main Dairy Freeze is headed to the big screen.
    From closing off traffic, to taking up the entire parking lot, crews from the movie, “What Lies Ahead,” were eager to use the location for a scene of the upcoming movie.
    Starring Rumer Willis and Emma Dumont, the movie is a thriller that has been mostly filmed in Bardstown.
    Director Rob Gardner said finding the right locations for the movie was key to making it feel authentic.
