    Meade County took a five-game winning streak into Owensboro on May 16 and left with a 4-1 loss to the lightly-heralded Daviess County Lady Panthers, who were 10-18 at the time and were shutout four times in a five-game stretch in late April.

  • 17TH DISTRICT SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT: Central Hardin doesn't mind having the target on its back (05/23)

    By ALICE NICHOLS, guest columnist

    One of the things that I am most grateful for in my life is the privilege of always having had work to do that feels “meaningful.” It is a great blessing to be able to end the day knowing that we have had the opportunity to do something that makes a positive difference in the life of another person or something that contributes to the greater good.  Meaningful work often is difficult, challenging and, at times, frustrating.
