  • Soccer: Hawks lose to Bethlehem in district tournament

    Tournament host Bardstown Bethlehem scored on a penalty kick 15 minutes in, and the rout was on.

    Bethlehem scored four more goals en route to a 5-0 win over LaRue County in the 9th District Tournament semifinals at Lally Field in Bardstown.

    “Once they got that penalty kick, our heads went down. But we held them the rest of the game,” said LaRue County coach Chuck Holloway. “We just could not recover.”

    Bethlehem (15-2-2) outshot LaRue County (13-4-3), 19-6. LaRue County senior keeper Bo Haun stopped 11 of those shots.

  • A RINGING TRUTH: How to stop harassing debt collectors

    A debt collector yelled at me this morning. I tried to yell back – but I think she hung up the phone before I got to that point.

    And I think it was a debt collector. She had all the required traits – attitude, persistence, hide like a water buffalo.

    The funny thing is … it wasn’t my debt.

    It was my morning snooze, however. I worked 16 hours Monday and another eight Tuesday – on top of the 60-or-so from the previous week – so I believed a few extra zzzzs were owed me.

  • It’s homecoming time of year

    I recently overheard someone say that this time of year is “homecoming time” again.

    There are indeed several special opportunities and calls to look to “going home” and devoting time with loved ones: Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year’s Day as well as infrequent events: weddings, funerals, special-count birthdays, reunions of various types.
