  • Correcting our failure to communicate this Easter

    George Bernard Shaw once said, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

    Communication is an imperfect science, to say the least.

    I picked up the phone just the other day and thought I correctly read the caller ID: “Lebanon Elementary School,” the school where my wife works. So naturally, I assumed it was her.

    But that’s not what it said. And it wasn’t her.

    More than a bit peeved after her 0-for-4 performance Monday, Abbi Goedde went home and took out her frustrations in her hitting building.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Bulldogs edge Trojans (04/04)

    Zach Miller thought he had caught the foul ball off the bat of North Hardin senior Andrew Boyles.

    The John Hardin junior catcher dove for the ball Tuesday, appeared to catch it and held it up for the home plate umpire to see. But after conferring with the other umpire, it was ruled a foul ball and the at-bat continued.

    Even as the Trojans put two runners on base trailing by a run in the top of the seventh, Miller was confident the Bulldogs were in good hands with senior Sam Brashear on the mound.

  • Plea offer rejected in rape case

    A Michigan man facing rape and other charges in Hardin County rejected a plea offer from prosecutors Tuesday in Hardin Circuit Court.
