  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: Elizabethtown's Greenwell makes All-Stars (04/20)

    Natalie Greenwell was still in bed and yet to start getting ready for school Monday morning when her cell phone began to rumble.

    The buzzing nuisance was a text message from Christian Stefanopoulos, her soon-to-be assistant coach at Morehead State University.

    “She was like, ‘Congratulations,’” said Greenwell, who signed with Morehead State last week. “I was still asleep pretty much and I said, ‘For what?’”

  • PREP SOFTBALL: LaRue County tops John Hardin, 13-6 (04/19)

    For the second time in a span of five days, John Hardin senior pitcher Olivia Greenwell had a tough outing.

    And for the second time in that same span, the opposing team took full advantage.

    The homestanding LaRue County Lady Hawks exploded for 12 runs in the first three innings and finished with 14 hits en route to a 13-6 win Monday night.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Delabar to sign with Mariners (4/19)

    Stevie Delabar was taught early in his professional baseball career it’s best to keep an even keel especially being a pitcher. Whether his team had a lead or he had a bad inning, Delabar never allowed himself to get too high or too low.

    No matter how much he tried to keep his emotions in check Monday, Delabar allowed himself a moment to celebrate. Delabar, a former Central Hardin standout and John Hardin assistant, is expected to sign with the Seattle Mariners today.

  • Sadness accompanies glory of Easter celebration

    My family followed traditional American Easter traditions when I was a child. In addition to preparing for the Sunday morning worship of the resurrected Christ, we anticipated the Easter event by dyeing eggs for the family egg hunt, sending Easter cards and exchanging chocolate bunnies.
    Dad was a dentist and candy generally was discouraged in our house, so chomping down on one of those miniature chocolate Easter bunnies was a rare and unusual treat.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin slams Elizabethtown, 10-0 (04/19)

    Jordan Daniel showed her unselfish nature early Monday as Central Hardin’s senior catcher hit a pair of sacrifice flies. With the chance to add to her RBI total against the visiting Elizabethtown Lady Panthers, Daniel declined.

    Daniel waved home Ashley Hughes on a passed ball three pitches before smacking a double which would have scored Hughes anyway as the No. 21 Lady Bruins cruised to the 17th District win in six innings, 10-0.

  • PREP BASEBALL: LaRue's small ball takes care of North Hardin

    Coach Chris Price’s small ball philosophy continues to keep the LaRue County Hawks soaring back into games.

    They’re moving runners over with perfectly executed bunts, staying aggressive on the basepaths and stealing their way back from some significant deficits and turning them into wins.

  • Tax filing time's up

    Clients were lined up to the door at Packages and More Inc. in Elizabethtown before work and school at 9 a.m. Monday.

    It was the last day to file taxes without an extensio, and there was a last-minute rush to get tax returns in the mail.

    Katie Buchanan, a customer service representative for Packages and More, said the company served a lot of filers the last few days of last week and Monday. She thinks many wait to file their taxes because they procrastinated, and they could have saved themselves some worry by finishing a little earlier.
