  • Fifth Region hoop titles could reside in Radcliff

    Don't be surprised if North Hardin captures the boys' and girls' Fifth Region basketball championships in 2009.

    Adair County was expected to repeat last year in the Fifth Region and Bardstown is the pre-season favorite this year. But not since North Hardin won three straight titles (2001-2003) has a school won back-to-back crowns.

    North Hardin adds Greg Johnson, who did not play last season, to LaRod King and Roosevelt Emerson to get the slight edge over Bardstown and Adair County.

  • Our future is in strong hands

    I'm beginning to realize that I was just a lazy teenager. During the past few weeks, I've introduced you to a Latin teacher, symbolic adoptive parents, a veterinarian and a banker. All are teenagers and still in high school.

    Though high school is but a faint memory to me now, I know I never did anything more than what was required of me.

    I never took a job through the school's work co-op program. I'm not even sure that was an option for me. Work? Hey, I was in high school, I'm not supposed to work!

    Here's my Terrific 13, starting with the picks from Taylor County since they won the Battle of the Birds in September.

  • Fairview knocks off Eagles 24-13 in play-offs

  • Estill ends TCHS' season

    "If we can get some stops, we can score with them," admitted Taylor County High School head football coach Rodney Turpin midway in the third quarter.

    However, that was easier said than done as Estill County scored on 10 of its 11 possessions to roll past the home-standing Cardinals 73-28 in the second round of play-off action on Friday night.

    The Engineers tallied on four of their first-quarter possessions to lead 30-0 and held a 37-0 advantage with 9:25 left in the second period.
