    Bouncing back after an opponent has a big inning hasn’t been a problem for the Washington County Commanders lately. Stopping the big inning has troubled the Elizabethtown Panthers late in the season.

    Both trends continued Monday during the quarterfinals of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament. After Elizabethtown grabbed a 2-0 lead, the Commanders cranked up their offense to post a 7-2 victory at Central Hardin High School.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT: LaRue County upends Adair County in eight (05/31)

    Aaron Howell tried to loosen the mood Monday night and Ellen Huff said he wasn’t much help.

    But whatever he said must have worked as the Lady Hawks’ senior catcher stroked a tiebreaking single in the top of the eighth inning and LaRue County held on to stun the Adair County Lady Indians, 3-1 in the third 5th Region Softball Tournament quarterfinal in Hodgenville.

  • 5TH REGION SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT: Small ball sends Central Hardin past Washington County (05/31)

    Just call it small-ball Central.

  • Knox photos make history more colorful

    In the age of high-definition, we’re used to the media offering us an almost literal window to the world.

    But what about our window to the past? What did things look like, say, 70 years ago? Newsreels and iconic photos – such as the Times Square V-J Day kiss and the Iwo Jima flag raising – lack a certain quality of “being there” because there’s no color.

    Hunter Mudd, an 8-year-old from Shepherdsville, was absorbed by a cloud of smoke after he fired a Civil War-style rifle.

    His family was among the visitors at the 150th anniversary at Fort Duffield, the 1,000-foot-long earthen fort near West Point.
