  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Tiger boys get past John Hardin

    The Tigers snap a three-match skid in boys’ soccer behind a monster effort by Omar Dizdar.

  • FOOTBALL: NC’s skid continues

    On Friday, the Bears picked up their first win of the season, pulling away from the Cardinals for a 40-0 win.

    The loss extended Nelson County’s losing streak to 13 games, and while the rebuilding of the program hasn’t been easy, Coach Dirk Strunk saw some encouraging things.

  • FOOTBALL: Tigers throttle Marion to stay hot

    LEBANON — It was not a thing of beauty, but Bardstown picked up its second consecutive win Friday night with a 49-6 win over Marion County in Lebanon.

    The Tigers caused themselves more problems than the 1-2 Knights, shooting themselves in the foot in the first half with penalties and by not being able to capitalize on good field position.

    Bardstown scored on its first possession of the game after a 12-yard punt Marion County gave them the ball on the Knights’ 26-yard line. LaDarion Mongtomery went 26 yards for the score.

  • Concern and optimism when it comes to democracy

    Sometimes, you wonder if the world is doomed to descend into autocracy. Certainly, that’s what the coverage of the past few years suggests. We read about the nations that are already there, such as China and Russia, of course, and Saudi Arabia and Iran. Or about countries such as Hungary, Turkey, and Poland that are nominally democratic but have been trending less so.

  • Downward spirals of depression can be deadly

    WASHINGTON — There are alarming consequences for the survival of human beings and the success of the society they inhabit when the brain suffers without treatment. And it has become frighteningly common for Americans to find their way into despair and self-murder.

  • Democracy inaction in Britain and the U.S.

    Two stories at the center of the news — the Brexit mess in Britain and the U.S. Senate’s failure to act on gun violence — should force us to think hard about what it will take for historic democracies to make their systems work again. We need to accept that different conceptions of democracy sometimes contradict each other, and that some of our governing structures are the antithesis of democratic rule.

  • EDITORIAL: Small-town landmarks may disappear, but we will always have memories

    The closing of the Rooster Run General Store brings to mind the small-town images you typically see in tourist locales around the country fading away.

    The gigantic rooster monument on Ky. 245, the T-rex dinosaur along I-65 in Cave City leading to the museum — those kinds of iconic structures are eye-catching and make you want to stop and see the sights, not just for the kids, but for the adults as well.
