  • Judge denies defense motion to suppress testimony in ex-teacher's case

    Hardin Circuit Judge Kelly Mark Easton denied a defense motion Wednesday in the case against former teacher Steven Gray to suppress witness testimony regarding an interrogation by three Hardin County Schools officials.

    Gray, 29, was fired in November after HCS received an anonymous phone call alleging the social studies teacher was engaging in intimate relationships with students. About a week later, Gray was arrested and charged with felony sex crimes.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade County tinkering with options without Wilson (09/23)

    Meade County football coach Larry Mofield feels like a chemist.

    With senior quarterback and offensive leader Thomas Wilson out with a broken ring finger for at least the next three weeks, Mofield is trying to find a new concoction for his offense.

    He’s mixing a little of sophomore Zeb Wilson, a little bit of the wildcat and maybe even a special surprise formation or two for Henderson County.

  • 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.

They rebounded to take a 21-14 lead before North Hardin scored with less than a minute left to force overtime.

  • PREP FOOTBALL OPINION: 2-Minute Drill (09/23)

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

    For five- and six-team districts, games begin to count as far as playoffs are concerned. North Hardin travels to Grayson County for a Class 5-A, District 3 game, while John Hardin goes to Louisville Iroquois. In Class 2-A, District 4, Fort Knox hosts Louisville DeSales.

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