  • A libero? What’s that?

    The Lady Hawks volleyball team has made great improvements throughout this season. One way they have stepped up their play is by adding the position of a libero.

    A libero wears a different color uniform than the rest of the team. The libero can substitute for anyone in the back row at anytime, and is generally the team’s best passer.

    Senior Kristin Thompson is the libero for the varsity Lady Hawks this season. Thompson, who has been playing volleyball since the seventh grade, is the daughter of Deena and Chris Thompson.

  • Strange excels at Northwestern

    Northwestern senior Courtney Plaster-Strange, a graduate of Kentucky Country Day and daughter of John and Becky Strange of Hodgenville, has been a spark offensively all season for the Northwestern Wildcats’ field hockey team.

    Earlier this month, she was honored as the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for her performances against Missouri State and St. Joseph’s. Plaster-Strange scored five goals and totaled 11 points in NU’s victories.

  • Ceremony scheduled for next Lincoln penny

    The final Lincoln Bicentennial One-Cent Coin release in Washington, D.C., will be Nov. 12.

    Organizers of the event have not set a venue, but it will probably be in the Capitol complex.

    On the reverse of the penny, the Capitol building’s dome is under construction, as it was during Abraham Lincoln's term in office. The dome continued to rise as the Civil War was fought.

    When Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, just five days after the war ended, his body lay in state under the newly completed dome.
