    With junior starting point guard Jermaine Ruttley hospitalized in Louisville and likely done for the season, the North Hardin Trojans plan on using a by-committee approach to handling the ball.

    The sophomore shooting guard scored a career-high 30 points, mostly on assists from Coney, and the Trojans opened the season with a103-66 win Friday against visiting 17th District rival Fort Knox.

  • Heroes fill (and fulfill) dreams of children

    All kids — or at least all boys — have people they admire and want to emulate. For me, childhood heroes included the Lone Ranger, George Washington Carver, Johnny Unitas and my father. Oh, yeah, add Superman to that list.
