    For the second year in a row, local high schools came together for an evening of cornhole, flag football and unity as part of the Green Dot Festival at Bardstown High School.

    The festival is something student Lauren Miles started two years ago after attending a camp at Berea College.

    “It taught us how to prevent violence and how to help if we ever saw it,” she said of the camp. When the program was over, Miles received a grant for $500 and decided to use the money to start a Green Dot Festival.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: Turkey hunting at Wendell Ford Regional Training Center

    On Sunday, April 8, at a week-late Easter get-together with my side of the family, the subject of turkey hunting came up.

    Two of my brothers and two of my nephews had hunted at the Wendell Ford Training Center the Saturday before, and my brothers — one retired, one active duty — were going back the following Monday to hunt for three days before that activity would be shut down for a week and a half while about 1,700 soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division from Fort Campbell came on base for training.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Baseball district tightens up

    There’s a logjam developing atop the 19th District baseball standings, yet again.

    Following a doubleheader win by Bardstown over Bethlehem on Monday, the Eagles were knocked off their temporary perch atop the standings, with Washington County moving back into first after a win Tuesday at Thomas Nelson.

    So far, the Commanders (9-3) hold onto first place with a 5-1 district mark through Wednesday’s games. Washington County hosted Thomas Nelson (2-6, 0-5 dist.) after press time Thursday, and will visit the Generals for Game 3 of their series tonight.
