  • Education is key when it comes to syringe exchange programs

     “Why would you give a needle to a drug addict?”

    Admittedly, I once thought that was a very stupid question. It would just enable an addict, make it easier for them to do their drug of choice. Why make needles easier to get? These were all thoughts I had when I first heard about syringe exchange programs.

    And so when I hear people express these thoughts, I don’t automatically discredit them, because it wasn’t that long ago that I thought the exact same thing.

    After the Patriots led 7-0, Taylor County reeled off five straight touchdowns and never looked back.

    My dad has had a change of heart recently.

    Actually, he received a new heart via transplant on Sept. 29.

    In a way, it had been a long time coming, but in other ways, the wait was extremely short.

    Dad’s heart problems began when I was in high school, and he was about to turn 37 years old.

    In the summer of 1988, I was gone on a trip with friends to Charleston, South Carolina. My parents were home and my mom was getting ready to go to a friend’s wedding just up the street from our house.

  • TCHS boys move up into a third-place tie at state golf

     

    Taylor County High School boys’ golf team improved to a tie for third, after finishing fifth last year at the Leachman Buick GMC Cadillac KHSAA State Tournament at Bowling Green Country Club. The Cardinals went from 628 in 2016 to 590. The Cardinals were led by junior Cooper Parks' sixth-place finish while Luke Coyel tied for 16th, Clay Barnett and Tanner Parks tied for 30th and Logan Peterson tied for 44th.

  • Battle between Eagles to decide District 2 top seed

    The last eight games between Campbellsville and Bethlehem have been some strange deals.
    The last two, just like tomorrow’s encounter on Dave Fryrear Field, have been district battles. CHS fell 14-13 at home two years ago and Bethlehem pulled away for a 22-8 triumph in Bardstown last season.
    The previous six contests between the sets of Eagles were back-and-forth with each team winning six.
    Campbellsville went 2-1 at Bardstown with a 33-21 loss in 2013 while Bardstown went 2-1 on the road with its only loss coming 36-0 in 2014.

  • Third frame costs TC at East Jessamine

    Taylor County scored on the last play of the first half to lead home-standing East Jessamine on Friday night.
    However, the host Jaguars put up three third-period touchdowns and held on for a 28-20 district triumph in Nicholasville.
    The Cardinals led 6-0 early in the second period on Tre Goodin’s 54-yard pass touchdown pass to Cameron Kosid out of punt formation.
    However, East Jessamine led 7-6 before Darien Bishop’s interception at :39 set up Logan Parker’s burst from two yards out.
    Bishop caught the go-head conversion from Goodin.
