  • 9-10s are District champs

    Washington County may have fallen victim to a pitching limit rule, but credit Campbellsville for making the best of it as the host team won the 5th District Little League championship with a 5-2 come-from-behind victory.

    The 9-10s will begin play in the state tournament this weekend in Richmond.

    Washington's Michael Chastain had a no-hitter going for 5 1/3 innings, that is until he reached the 75-pitch limit. Chastain's replacements didn't have the same command.

  • The buzz on honeybees

    There was a buzz at the Taylor County Extension Office on Thursday.

    Several members of the Green River Beekeepers Association were on hand to talk about bees, the first of what is hoped to become an annual Honey Bee Awareness Day.

    About 70 people attended the event, where they saw a glass-encased cross section of a hive, sampled honey granola and honey lemonade, witnessed equipment demonstrations and browsed honey and bee-related merchandise.

  • Sounds in the night

    "Carol, there is someone outside your bathroom window."

    "What?"

    "I heard a woman's voice outside your bathroom window," my good friend Connie said as she whispered down the hallway to the den.

    "What did you hear?"

    "Kind of a cry-like voice."

    She was visiting from Louisville and, being from the big city, she has the mindset that if a noise is heard outside a window, it is not a good thing. I, on the other hand, find plausible excuses.

    "Are you sure you didn't hear the wind?"
