  • Kuster will be fair, but firm as district judge, says Gann family

    To the editor:

    We are writing to endorse Judge Bill Kuster.

    We have known Bill and his family for several years now and we believe Bill is the best candidate for district judge.

  • Newberry is the right one for the district judge position

    To the editor:

    As Nov. 2, 2010 comes closer and we step up to the voting booth, what are you going to do? Vote the same name again? Or are you going to take the bull by the horns and vote for someone new, someone with a new look at our problems and do something about them?

    It’s time for the old guard to retire and give up that chair that they think has their name on it for the rest of their lives -  same old rules, same old policies, saying ‘this was how it had always been done, why change now?’ Does that sound familiar to you?

  • Tigers rip Thorobreds Saturday night, 41-9

    Homecoming 2010 was first made uncomfortable by the rain, though the community needs the rain. The Bardstown Tigers absolutely spoiled the night as they ran rough shod over the Harrison County Thorobreds dominating every facet of the game. 

    The Thorobreds, playing without their three fastest players who were out with injuries, could never catch up to the fleet footed Tigers. 

    “We were not very good,” lamented Breds’ Coach Mark Carroll. “The same issues we had last week came back tonight and hurt us again.”

  • Marching Thorobreds finish strong at Mason Classic

    The Marching Thorobreds have not competed since Sept. 18, and on Saturday, Oct. 9, they were ready to show the improvements made during those three long weeks. 

    Their efforts certainly paid off as they earned a first place finish in class 4A at the 29th annual Mason County Band Classic. 

    The color guard was also named as the top guard in class 4A, and was only a breath behind Lloyd Memorial for taking the overall color guard trophy. 

  • Sometimes it’s hip to be square

    Although I’m embarrassed to admit this, I’m a sucker for whatever’s cool or hip.

    When I was 12, I convinced my mom that I needed a pair of white go-go boots because the “Hulabaloo” dancers wore them on TV. (If you have to ask “What’s ‘Hulabalo?’” I don’t want to hear it.)

    Mom got them for me at the Stride Rite shoe store, but I never wore them. Hip and cool chicks could get away with wearing white go-go boots, but I never could, not at 12 or 22 or 32.
