  • Radcliff Model Railroad Association members feel on right track with hobby

    Helicopters, tanks and barracks dot the property of a 1970s-era Army fort. Not far away, Victorian-style homes with porches that sport hanging flower baskets line the streets of a small town where a park and gas station lend an air of simplicity to life there.

    These scenes are dwarfed by members of the Radcliff Model Railroad Association as they move around the layouts constructed for their trains.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Trojans feeling overlooked (11/11)

    Since all he keeps hearing about is how John Hardin is headed to the Class 5-A state championship game, North Hardin coach Crad Jaggers thought maybe he should chime in, too.

    He’s a little miffed his program is being overlooked, so he’s firing back with an interesting response.

    “Everybody is looking forward to the John Hardin-Bowling Green game,” Jaggers said Wednesday afternoon. “I’m looking forward to watching that myself, the John Hardin-Bowling Green game. I just hope they give me a ticket to that game.”

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bulldogs not taking North lightly (11/11)

    The John Hardin Bulldogs realize what’s at stake tonight when they play the North Hardin Trojans. If they are going to achieve their ultimate goal, the Bulldogs understand they can’t take the Trojans lightly.

    Sure, it’s the same team John Hardin destroyed in the regular season Oct. 14. The Bulldogs jumped out to a quick 21-0 lead in the first 13 minutes and built a 37-7 halftime margin. That game means little to the Bulldogs now.

  • PREP FOOTBALL OPINION: Could rivalry add epic chapter? (11/11)

    Some rivalries are built over time, while others are born. John Hardin versus North Hardin falls into the second category.

    As soon as John Hardin opened its doors in 2001, the Radcliff rivalry was born. The schools are separated by less than 8 miles. It only takes 12 minutes to get from one to the other. These two schools were destined to be rivals.

  • PREP CROSS COUNTRY: John Hardin's Lever enjoys quite a cross country journey (11/11)

    When Katie Lever’s high school cross country career began at Fort Knox in 2008, she had no idea just how far the journey would take her.

    In her first race, Lever placed 176th in the Rumble in the Jungle in Goshen – taking more than 27 minutes to finish. At the time, Lever didn’t care for running. She was only doing it to stay in shape for softball season.
