  • Deer hunters finding plenty of...

    There’s good news for deer hunters. Cooler weather has meant a good early season harvest, and it also has meant an end to this year’s outbreak of Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD).

    The recent killing frosts apparently have eliminated most of the midges (gnats) that carry the disease. And they also have contributed to excellent hunting condtions, which have had deer on the move.

  • Banshees young and learning

    If you’re into new faces, Bethlehem is a team in need of some nametags.

    The Eagles will start the 2007-08 season with a new coach and a new starting five. Gone are former coach Steve Hart and six seniors along with roughly 90 percent of the offense that led the Banshees to an 18-10 record and a trip to the regional semifinals.

    Stepping in is Terry Janes, who comes to the Banshees after stints as an assistant at Boyle County and Nelson County. He brings with him a straightforward approach to the game,

  • Great expectations as Tigers...

    Bardstown is coming off a very successful season that saw the Tiger girls go to the “All-A” Classic for the second year in a row and win the second-most games in the program’s history, finishing up at 17-12. With five starters and several key reserves returning, head coach Paul Stone thinks bigger things are on tap.

  • Falcons stingy with yards, points

    Knocking off perennial power Danville was great, but playoff time is no time for Bardstown to rest on its laurels.

    “You never know when it’s going to be your last game,” Tiger coach David Clark said.

    Bardstown (6-6) has slugged through one of the most difficult schedules in the state, and Clark feels like his team is ready for the challenge that awaits his club at the other end of a long Western Kentucky trip.

  • Siblings retiring their headsets...

    For the local radio team of brothers Jason and Jeff Floyd, the next game could be their last.

    The duo has broadcast football games in the Bardstown-Nelson County area on WBRT-AM 1320 for the past decade, but they decided earlier this season this year would be their last.

  • What to call it?

    I was struck with a weird dilemma when writing up the story on the Bardstown-Danville game. What to call the Tigers’ next game?

    Under the old system, the district championship was decided in the regular season and districts were paired with a nearby district to make a region, similar to how it works in basketball. In the first round, teams played against their companion district in the first round, and possibly second round. The third round decided the region’s champion and representative in the state semifinals.

    It’s like that now. Sort of.

  • Nothing 'regional'...

    There are a few important things to know for fans heading down to Fort Campbell to watch the Class 2A Region 2 championship game featuring Bardstown’s Tigers and the Fort Campbell Falcons.

    To get to Fort Campbell, take the Martha Layne Collins Blue Grass Parkway to Elizabethtown. You will merge briefly onto I-65 south, then follow the signs to the Wendell H. Ford Western Kentucky Parkway going toward Owensboro and Paducah.

    Follow the Western Kentucky Parkway for about 100 miles until you intersect with the Edward T. Breathitt Pennyrile Parkway.
