  • KSP holds press conference about shooting

    The fatal shooting of Bardstown Police Officer Jason Ellis early Saturday morning was premeditated murder, a spokesman for the Kentucky State Police said at a press conference in Elizabethtown Sunday.

    “Someone planned this,” Master Trooper Norman Chaffins told reporters “Someone planned to shoot somebody … at that location at that time.”

    However, police aren’t absolutely certain that Ellis was the target.

  • Officer was ambushed

    The Bardstown Police officer who was killed early Saturday morning on the Blue Grass Parkway exit ramp at Bloomfield Road (Ky. 55) was apparently ambushed by someone with a 12-gauge shotgun, according to Nelson County Coroner Field Houghlin.

    Whoever shot Ellis fired on him from a hill above the Exit 34 ramp, Houghlin told the TV station. When a reporter asked if the shooting was an ambush, the coroner answered, "I would say that is definitely what happened."

  • 5th Region Baseball: LaRue faces Green

    Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson stated the obvious following Saturday morning’s 5th Region Baseball Tournament draw. He has been through this a time or two before, so he doesn’t get too caught up in the pairings.

    “It doesn’t matter who you play, we have to come out and be at the top of our game,” Thompson said. “Everyone in the tournament is a good team and whoever you play is probably going to throw their best (pitcher). We have to be ready to play.”

  • 5th Region Softball Tourney starts Monday

    BARDSTOWN — Saturday morning’s 5th Region Softball Tournament draw at first-time host Nelson County.

  • Bardstown officer shot

    A Bardstown Police officer, Jason Scott Ellis, 33, of Chaplin, was shot and killed sometime before 2:40 Saturday morning as he was on his way home from work.

    Kentucky State Police officers are investigating the shooting, which happened on the Exit 34 ramp on the Blue Grass Parkway at the Ky. 55 section of Bloomfield Road. Ellis, a K-9 officer, was in uniform and was found lying outside the police car he was driving. His dog was not with him.

  • Lady Hawks are District Champs

    HORSE CAVE— Emillee Cundiff could have gotten down on herself and allowed things to snowball in Thursday’s 18th District Softball Tournament final at Caverna.

    After giving up a three-run home run to Green County senior Madison Sidebottom with two outs in the bottom of the first, things could have gotten worse for the LaRue County sophomore.

    But they didn’t.

  • Lady Hawks wait another day for final (05/23)

    Another day turned into yet another rain delay for the 18th District Softball Tournament.

    The championship game, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday night at Caverna, was pushed back again – this time to a 1 p.m. start today between top-seeded Green County and second-seeded LaRue County – after heavy rain and storms moved through the region Wednesday afternoon.

    Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell is plenty tired of Mother Nature intervening.

  • Milby, Dragons end LaRue's streak

    HORSE CAVE With a matchup looming against the pitcher who struck them out 18 times earlier this season, the LaRue County Hawks were primed for another chance.

    They got the opportunity they’ve been waiting for against Green County ace Brennen Milby, but they may have been a little too excited.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL: LaRue, Green meet in 18th finals (05/22)

    Mother Nature wins again.

    The 18th District baseball and softball tournament championship games between LaRue County and Green County were rained out Tuesday and rescheduled for 6 tonight at Caverna – that is, if Mother Nature allows it.

    More rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast for today, meaning both games could get pushed back to Thursday. Because LaRue County and Green County have graduation Friday night, Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell hopes Plan ‘A’ works out.
