    By Larry Vaught

    No University of Kentucky basketball fan would be shocked that Scott Padgett's son is a potential college basketball player. However, Logan Padgett might also have a future in football that could turn out to be better than basketball.
    Scott Padgett was on UK's 1998 national championship team and is now the head coach at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. Logan is a 6-6 receiver on the Homewood High School football team and power forward on the basketball team.

    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.

    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.

  • Picture perfect

    The old saying about photos is that "a picture is worth a thousand words." In a signal photo, a moment is frozen in time, forever entrenched as a memory that all can enjoy and reflect on. A photo allows us to remember an amazing or memorable moment in our lives, from a wedding to a pet, or anything! A photo brings up so many memories and emotions of the event from which the image came.
