    Hardin County finished well below average rainfall for August.

    The station recorded 0.73 inches of rain last month, compared to 3.1 inches averaged during August over the past 25 years.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Eagles ready to rebound from loss (09/01)

    While breaking down film of the Butler County Bears, one thing jumped out to first-year Fort Knox coach Shawn Thompson: The Bears have an array of playmakers on offense.

    It starts with senior Clay Embry, who’s accounted for nearly half of Butler County’s total offense. In two games, Embry has rushed seven times for 220 yards and five touchdowns and caught five passes for 65 yards and another score.
