  • PREP FOOTBALL: LaRue looks to slow down Warren East (09/23)

    LaRue County defensive coordinator Josh Jaggers has lost a lot of sleep this week in getting his Hawks prepared to face the Warren East Raiders.

    Stopping the Raiders (4-1) isn’t going to be easy.

    Warren East, which has won three straight entering tonight’s game at 8 in Hodgenville, presents a multi-pronged offensive attack that could give the Hawks (2-3) fits.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins show Perry good signs (09/23)

    Central Hardin first-year coach Mark Perry was able to see something from his Bruins for the first time during his tenure last Friday. And it’s something the Bruins can continue to build upon moving forward.

    The Bruins struggled offensively in the first half against the North Hardin Trojans, managing only 6 yards of total offense. They rebounded to take a 21-14 lead before North Hardin scored with less than a minute left to force overtime. After the Trojans took a 24-21 lead, Central Hardin scored a touchdown to pull out the victory.

    Six weeks into the season and we’re finally getting games that matter. That’s right: district games – for some – begin tonight.

    Meanwhile, Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, LaRue County and Meade County all are still two weeks away from starting district games.

  • GIRLS' PREP SOCCER: Will CKY continue its domination at Elizabethtown event? (09/23)

    The Central Kentucky-Western Kentucky Challenge at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium in Elizabethtown has been less a four-game showcase hosted by the currently ranked No. 1 Lady Panthers and more of a domination by the more eastern squads.

    Heading into Saturday’s fifth annual event, Central Kentucky is a commanding 10-2-3 in the event. There were only three games in 2006 and the 2007 event was rained out.

  • Roberts lived full life at 106

    Tillie Roberts loved people and in her lifetime, she met a lot of them.

    “Truthfully. I think this was another reason for her living such a long life,’’ said first cousin E.J. Higginbotham. “She enjoyed socialization of everyday life with people. Whenever visitors were leaving, she’d always tell them, ‘Now you come back any chance you get.’”

    Roberts died Saturday. She was 106.
