  • PREP FOOTBALL: Knox looks to snap four-game skid (09/30)

    Two seasons later, the host Eagles are again in search of a win – only this time, the losing streak isn’t quite as long.

    Fort Knox enters tonight’s game with the Tigers having lost four straight since a season-opening win over Elizabethtown. If ever there was a time for a pick-me-up victory, this would be it.

    Andy Games told his wife, Beverly Games, matter of factly, that she’d be stupid if she didn’t accept an invitation to play next week in one of the USGA’s most prestigious events. One of her best golfing buddies, Kim Hartlage, told Games it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams received multiple standing ovations Thursday morning when presenting his jobs plan to more than 50 Hardin County business leaders at the Brown-Pusey House in Elizabethtown.
