  • Just doing good

    Usually, when athletes make news off the field, it’s for all the wrong reasons. They get tied up in crime, drugs or have run-ins with the law. They potentially ruin their careers and their lives with poor choices and destructive habits.
    However, a recent story involving Arizona Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham and a woman named Delilah Cassidy had a much different ending. The story did start off with a bad situation, but it ended so wonderfully.

  • PRO BASKETBALL: Epps receives positive news on injured knee

    Nearly a month after being released from the Chicago Sky, Makayla Epps received some positive news on her injured knee.
    Two examinations by doctors in Kentucky last month have revealed no tears in Epps’ knee, which her family initially feared was the case when a doctor for the Chicago Sky first spotted an issue in her knee.
    Epps declined to comment on her current status.
    Instead, Epps has chronic tendonitis and inflammation in the cartilage, which shouldn’t keep her down for too long, according to Epps’ mother, Angela Mattingly.

  • SOFTBALL: Central Hardin defeats Lady Knights in region semifinals

    Sure, the Fifth Region Tournament was played on Marion County’s home field this year.
    However, no matter where the regional tournament is hosted, the road to the regional title seems to always run through Central Hardin.
    The Lady Bruins have made five straight regional title game appearances.
    Make that six.
    Emily Bryant and Peyton Beger both went yard in the first inning and Kaci Goedde shut out Marion County 5-0 on Friday in the regional tournament semifinals on Talley Field.

  • Vaught’s Views: C.J. Conrad valuable to Kentucky because he can do so many things

    By Larry Vaught

    He had just 16 catches for 286 yards and four scores in 2017 before missing the final three games with a foot injury. Yet not only is tight end C.J. Conrad being counted on as a pivotal player in the Kentucky offense, he’s already projected to be one of the first tight ends picked in the 2019 NFL draft.

  • Beware of phone scams, don’t be the next victim

    The heat of summer is upon us as we wrap up graduations, prepare children for summer camps, and get ready for vacations. I am proud of the many successful graduates we have here in the 14th Senate District, and I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
    With the summer and time spent at home, however, comes a series of potential threats to public safety. Recently, I have heard of an uptick in scams, especially phone scams that attack our elderly.

  • Honesty: A hard pill to swallow

    I try my hardest to be a very honest person. No one wants honesty, that is a fact, but everyone needs it. Let me unpack that further for you: No one wants honesty, they want to hear/see/receive what they expect in their heads, they aren’t training their ears to hear something different than what they have picked out in their minds already, and that’s why honesty is such a hard pill to swallow.
