  • Winter? Snow problem!

    Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear, for the second time, in two weeks, declared a state of emergency in the state after a snowstorm.

    “Two significant winter storms nearly back-to-back are rare in Kentucky and pose a challenge for our emergency management teams, road crews and local emergency responders,” Beshear said in a press release.

    The state of emergency authorized deployment of National Guard troops and other state resources.

  • Bruckers seek separate trials

  • Cards advance to region semis

     

    Taylor County used a 14-4 second-quarter run and a 25-7 third frame to pull away from Bethlehem 75-50 in the last opening-round game of the Boys' Fifth Region Tournament late Saturday afternoon at Green County High School.

    "I didn't think we were tight," Cardinals' head coach Richard Gatewood said of his team's 16-15 deficit after a banked-in three from Eagle senior Jude Hutchins early in the second period. "But, we were rusty from being off a week (and not practicing on Thursday)."

  • Digging out

    With each slash of the snow shovel, I freed up one more inch of space, making room for my garage door to open so I could determine if I could drive out.

    In less time than I thought it would take, (and more back pain than I anticipated) I was ready to put the car in reverse and attempt a test run down my driveway. "Yes," I breathed a sigh of relief as I successfully made it to the street in front of my house, "freedom."

    The fear of being trapped inside the house dissipated, at least for the moment, for more snow was in the forecast.

  • Wise's legislation on KEES money passes

  • Keep your butts in the car!

     

    We've all seen it as we drive down the road; a person in the car in front of us flicks a small object out of their window, and it falls to the ground, hardly visible.

    We drive on and, most times, we probably don't think about it again.

    The object is a cigarette butt, and we've all seen it. Do we call 911 and report someone for littering? No, of course not. It's just a cigarette butt.
