  • Complicated family communication

    Getting a telephone call from by sister during the work day prompts an immediate emotional reaction. Seeing her name on the cellphone’s display screen brings a quick surge of tension and the beginnings of a knot in my stomach.

    It’s not that she always calls with bad news. It’s usually no big deal. But if she’s calling, it’s probably urgent, particularly if the call comes during the work day.

    We don’t call each other often.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: Elizabethtown looks right at home at Fort Knox (12/04)

    Taking the court Saturday afternoon for a road game for the third time in six days – including the second time in less than 24 hours – it would have been understandable if the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers came out sluggish and lackadaisical against the Fort Knox Lady Eagles.

    Instead, the Lady Panthers looked quite at home in the Lady Eagles’ temporary one.

    No Lady Panther played more than 18 minutes and eight players scored five points or more as Elizabethtown wore down the winless Lady Eagles, 78-20 at Smith Gym.
