  • LETTER: Unexpected lessons

    Dear Editor,

    On February 24, the LaRue County High School baseball team was given a special opportunity. We were able to perform a community service, which would also serve as a fundraiser for our program.

    Knowing that the Trash for Cash program would be a nice thing to do for our community and make a little money for the baseball program is what attracted us so much when it was brought to the team’s attention by a parent. The teambuilding and the sense of servanthood that was achieved by our young men was an added bonus.

    Senate Bill 9, redistricting of judicial districts in order to better align caseloads with current census data;

  • So much more than a game

    Since our son, Isaac, started playing Rec League basketball he has treated it like a career. The only other child I have ever seen as serious about a sport is my brother who was bound and determined to play baseball for the Cleveland Indians.

    Isaac has had several coaches since he first started playing basketball for the Bardstown Rec Department’s Fifth Quarter youth basketball program. This year was the first time he represented New Haven and the first time a coach made a huge impact on him.
