  • Lady Cards hold off Bardstown...

    Mercedes Cox (18 points), Hope Wigginton (16) and Elizabeth Thomas (10) combined for 44 points as the Taylor County Lady Cardinals held off visiting Bardstown 57-49 on Friday night.
    The Lady Cardinals (10-4) led by double digits at the half and still held an 11-point cushion (49-38) n the fourth quarter until a free throw and two Alyssa  Thompson three-pointers made it 49-45 with 3:30 to play.
    However, the Lady Cards nailed seven of 10 free throws down the stretch, six of eight by Cox, to post the victory.

  • Cards' strong second-half...

    Taylor County out-scored North Hardin 55-31 over the last three quarters and posted a 64-52 victory at home over the defending Fifth Region champions on Friday.
    The Trojans led by double digits in the first half before Tevin Webster’s 10-point, second-quarter effort brought the Cardinals to within four (36-32) at the intermission.
    Taylor County took its second lead of the game at 42-41 on Lucas Bradshaw’s basket with 2:54 left in the third frame and tallied the first 16 points of the final period.

  • Winter time is sauger time

    When the going gets tough (fishing), the tough go sauger fishing. It’s a fish most easily caught in the coldest weather.
    Below the dams on the Ohio and other streams are prime territory for sauger, a tasty cousin of the walleye.
    Sauger action usually starts in November and good fishing continues through the end of February from the Markland Dam all the way down the river to the J.T. Myers Dam at Uniontown. There also is good fishing along other streams throughout the state.

  • What might happen in the 2011...

    The old crystal ball has nearly exploded after its 2-9 record during the early bowl picks. However, it’s brave, or stupid, enough to try another full year of what might happen locally, state-wide or nationally on the sports scene during the next 12 months.
    Remember, once again, don’t take the picks too personal or too serious. You can’t do that when it takes less than 30 minutes from here to the final period in December to accomplish this feat.
