  • Will Kentucky voters be shut out?

    As I drove down Bardstown Road, a large yard sign caught my eye the other day - "Yes We Can" it touted in big red and blue letters. Beside it another sign - Barack Obama '08.

    It's nice to see folks finding a presidential candidate that they want to support and feeling good enough about it to shout it from their front yard (via signage) to the world.

    The bad thing is that by the time this poor person gets to vote in Kentucky's late May Primary, the decision for the Democratic and Republican party's contenders for the White House will likely already be decided.

    "I remember him telling me when I was younger that I should read the paper - it's always good to know what's going on everywhere else."

  • Three district champs fall at girls' region

    It's normally an advantage to win the district tournament championship game. But, don't try telling that to three of the teams who won those titles on Friday, but were eliminated on Monday and Tuesday in the first round of the Fifth Region Girls' Tournament at North Hardin.

    The upset trend began when 19th District runner-up Nelson County bested 18th District champion Green County 74-67 on Monday in the tourney's first game in Ron Bevars Gymnasium in Radcliff.
