  • BackPack program scores $2,500 in Wolverines win

    Saturday’s Wolverine Classic raised $2,500 toward the Feeding America BackPack Program which helps needy children and families in the area.

    Longtime Wolverine lineman Charlie Hopkins said the money was good enough to sponsor 30 kids for the school year. The program provides food to children for the weekend.

    Receiver JaJuan Spillman and running back Moonie Cunningham each scored three touchdowns as the Wolverines wrapped up their regular season with a 61-0 win over the visiting Columbus (Ohio) Gladiators at LaRue County High School.

  • Fun Day: No complaints from the kids

    My husband Bud and I spent Saturday evening dragging around a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old (our respective grandchildren). Actually, I think it was Chase and Claire who did the dragging.

    We spent a couple of hours at Family Fun Day at Creekfront Park. It’s the third year Hodgenville Main Street and the City of Hodgenville have put on the event.

    And thank you, thank you for moving Fun Day to the evening. The cooler temperatures meant the grandbabies could stay out longer.
