    BARDSTOWN — The LaRue County Lady Hawks were in search of a lift in the second half and it came from an unsuspecting place.

  • I-65 work continues

     Widening of Interstate 65 continues through Hart County, requiring several bridges to be reconstructed, including the KY 88 bridge over the interstate just west of Munfordville. Traffic on KY 88 will be reduced to one lane at the bridge. The lane closure may create delays, especially during morning and afternoon peak travel times. Motorists should plan accordingly.

    Width restrictions will also be in place during construction. Loads wider than 10 feet will not be permitted and must seek an alternate route.

  • COLUMN: President should end spin-control culture

     When the Valley Journals of Riverton, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City, wanted to know the time of the town’s 2012 Easter egg hunt, they couldn’t find out. The city barred the parks official from speaking to reporters without permission, and nothing, not even the Second Coming, would pry that information loose.

    What Valley Journals Managing Editor Linda Petersen experienced is unfortunately all too common – and becoming more so – in Utah, Washington, D.C., and other government shops across the country.

  • COLUMN: Sunshine Week

     March 16-22 is Sunshine Week nationwide. Take a moment to celebrate. Sunshine Week focuses on the importance of open government. No open government, no democracy. No transparency, no government accountability.

    I care about Sunshine Week both as a citizen and as a former newspaper employee/publisher for 22 years. We relied heavily upon the State of New Mexico’s strong public records and opening meeting acts to help keep public officials accountable and public bodies honest.

  • Season summary: ECTC's soccer and basketball
