  • BOYS' 17TH DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: It's anybody guess who will walk away with title (2/22)

    The Boys’ 17th District coaches have been talking about the parity in this district for the last few years, but this season it might be as balanced as ever. The line between winning and losing is razor thin.

    Look at what has happened this season. The fourth-seeded Central Hardin Bruins beat the third-seeded Elizabethtown Panthers. The Panthers knocked off the top-seeded John Hardin Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are the only team to beat the second-seeded North Hardin Trojans.

    Montgomery, a sophomore center, scored six of her game-high 24 points in a 14-2 run to close the first half as the fourth-seeded Lady Bulldogs finally pulled away from the fifth-seeded Lady Eagles, 70-41 on Monday night in the 17th District Tournament’s lone quarterfinal at Elizabethtown’s Charlie Rawlings Memorial Gymnasium.

    Penny Edwards remembers being 4 when she first watched “The Wizard of Oz” and saw the Wicked Witch kick Toto.

    “I screamed bloody murder,” Edwards said. “It took my mom forever to calm me down.”

    That would not be the last time Edwards spoke up for an animal.

    Today, Edwards is on the verge of reaching 19 years as an employee of Animal Refuge Center in Vine Grove where she is shelter manager. She volunteered there for a few years before becoming an employee.

  • "The Birds" revisited


    In the past few weeks I’ve been thinking about Alfred Hitchcock.

    Not Alfie, per se, but one of the movies he directed. (No, not “Psycho,” which, I guess, is something to be thankful for.)

    It was “The Birds” that came to mind.

    For Radcliff musician Tom Chatoney, creating music has a higher purpose than entertainment.

    After writing his first song for his then-girlfriend for her 16th birthday, most of Chatoney’s other song writing experiences have had a single purpose.

    “Except for the songs I’ve written for her, my mom and dad, and my son, all of my songs have been written for the glory of the Lord,” Chatoney said.
