  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors: Blue Water Trails

    The karst topography surrounding the Green River in Hart County produces some of the highest water quality in Kentucky. Many springs empty into the river in this stretch that pump a constant flow of clean, cold water and give the river a color more reminiscent of the shallows of the Caribbean than south-central Kentucky.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Hawks continue in Region

    Out of timeouts in the final two sets, all LaRue County coach Ben Schell could do was watch as the Lady Hawks’ season hung in the balance Monday in the 5th Region Volleyball Tournament quarterfinals at John Hardin.

    Schell had burned the allotted two timeouts per set early on as LaRue County fell behind. But both times, an experienced-laden team – which starts four seniors – dug its way out of holes with near-impossible comebacks.

    And as a result, the Lady Hawks are moving on.

  • John Ward retires from KSP

    Kentucky State Police Capt. William John Ward began his public safety career as a volunteer at Upton Fire Department. Just a teenager, he rode his bike to the department to assist on fire runs.

    Elizabethtown Fire Chief Mike Hulsey, who was a state fire instructor at the time, remembers teaching the teenage Ward.

    “He was dedicated to helping people,” Hulsey said.

    Ward, now 51, retires at the end of the month after 28 years with KSP, the last nine of which have been spent as commander of Post 4 in Elizabethtown.
