  • 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.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Central gets first win under Thomas (12/04)

    Junior Aecha Helm scored 18 points and senior Kasey Smallwood posted a double-double as the Central Hardin Lady Bruins gave first-year coach Demond Thomas his first win with a 71-57 victory over 5th Region rival Taylor County on Friday night.

    Smallwood had 17 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals as the Lady Bruins improved to 1-1.

    “Wow. I’m usually really nervous, but I was a little more calm going into last night’s game,” Thomas said Saturday. “After the game they gave me the game ball, so it was special.”
