  • PREP FOOTBALL: The dirtiest job in football (11/18)

    The life of an offensive lineman isn’t glamorous or sexy.

    The men in the trenches are often overlooked and underappreciated, but these front-line warriors are the engine which makes an offense fire on all cylinders.

    “It’s a very thankless job,” said John Hardin assistant coach Kelly Fisher, who is in charge of the offensive line. “They know their role and they all do their jobs. Coach (Mark) Brown and I always say, ‘We’ll only be as good as our offensive line.’”

  • Moving day exposes our inner selves

    A lifetime ago as our family was preparing for a move from Vine Grove to Nashville, our oldest daughter Jessica had one critical concern.

    She was only 3. Jessica wanted to know “Will the new house have any toys?”

    It was a frequent question. Each time her parents explained that all of her toys would be making the move too, she would seem satisfied with the answer only to pop up later with the same concern.

    I came to understand that in a life-changing experience such as moving, logic, reason and explanations aren’t always enough.

  • Terry Tucker named to task force

    An Elizabethtown man who has been one of Fort Knox’s leading promoters has retired from two influential positions.
    Ret. Col. Don Williams served as chairman of the Kentucky Commission on Military Affairs’ executive committee and was a member of the Base Realignment and Closure task force.
    With Williams’ retirement, Gov. Steve Beshear appointed another local resident — Ret. Maj. Gen. Terry Tucker — to serve both organizations. Tucker was commanding general at Fort Knox when BRAC was announced.
