  • Flex Films, E'town officials outraged over Williams' comments about Hindu ground blessing

    The director of Flex Films (USA) said comments made Tuesday by GOP gubernatorial candidate David Williams were offensive and hurtful and called for the state Senate president to be “ostracized” from his own party.

  • Holiday movie preview

    The holiday movie season kicks off in November and I might as well start with a film many people are looking forward to that might be the one that does not live up to the hype, “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.”

    The fourth installment of the best selling book series begins with the marriage of Edward and Bella. I’m not sure there’s enough to the story to make two parts but Summit Entertainment is going to try to get their money’s worth out of this franchise.

  • Living in a banana peel puppet world

    A few weeks ago I saw a commercial I had seen several times but never really thought about.

    What it came down to was this: cannibalistic cereal.

    Really.

    No, really. One piece of cereal eating another piece of cereal.

    It’s not like I’m shocked or freaked out or anything. (If it happened in real life — pardon the unintentional but appropriate joke — that would be different.) I just never really paid that much attention to the commercial until it struck me that it was just a bit odd.

  • West Point Police sponsor annual Red Ribbon Week

    West Point Police Department and Chief Butch Curl sponsor Red Ribbon Week at West Point School every year, but with the help of several donors, this year’s event turned into something a “little bigger than normal,” Curl said.
    Red Ribbon Week encourages the students to spend a lifetime free of drugs.

  • Janay Sutton hired as HCS health director, FRC contact

    After serving families in Vine Grove, Janay Sutton is excited to broaden her scope.

    Sutton has been hired as the new health director and Family Resource Centers district contact for Hardin County Schools.

    At Elizabethtown High School, Thomas Murley won three state titles running cross country.

    He’s coming out of retirement Sunday to run in the New York City Marathon.

    Murley began running cross country for Elizabethtown in the sixth grade and continued until his senior year in 1996. He won three individual state championships and was named a Foot Locker national finalist his sophomore and senior years.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown's Morgan within striking distance of single-season receptions record (11/03)

    Like Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Frank Abagnale Jr. leading on Tom Hanks’ portrayal of Carl Hanratty, Elizabethtown High School senior wide receiver Matt Morgan has been involved in a real-life on-field game of “Catch Me If You Can” with opposing defenses this season.

    Those defenders are still trying to stop him.

    Sure his Panthers have had a bad season record wise as they’re 0-10 and allowing a state-worst 58.8 points per game heading into Friday night’s Class 3-A first-round playoff game at No. 1 Bell County (10-0).

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade needs a postseason spark (11/03)

    The Meade County Green Wave might be slipping and sliding into the playoffs, but junior running back John Clark thinks he knows of a way for them to regain their footing.

    Maybe all their offensive linemen need is a good, old-fashioned pre-game postseason pep talk.

  • LCHS marching band to perform tonight

    After capturing the Class 2A state championship title, the LaRue County High School marching band is hosting a community performance tonight.

    Band director Jaime Smith said the 15- to 20-minute performance is free and at 8 p.m. on the LCHS football field. The stadium holds about 1,500, he said.

    In the event of bad weather, the performance will move to the high school’s gym but will be reduced to a musical performance, Smith said.
