  • No such thing as a routine stop

    If there’s one thing every participant in the 2010 edition of the Kentucky State Police Citizen’s Police Academy learned, it’s simple: there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop.

    A highlight for many participants was taking part in a mock traffic stop, where they learned the reality of that statement. Each participant stepped into the role of trooper in the mock scenario, and learned just how quickly an ordinary stop can turn deadly.

  • My own Christmas story...

    I admit: I broke a Christmas tradition this year, and I’m not too thrilled about it. The streak has ended.

    For the first time in a long time — so many years that I actually have no idea when — I did not watch “A Christmas Story” in its entirety. Yes, I know, this is not acceptable and will never happen again.

  • Lineup change sparks Warriors, coach says

    After a 47-36 loss to Somerset in the opening game of the Monticello Holiday All “A” Shootout last Monday night, Eminence head coach Chris Nethery decided to juggle the lineup in an attempt to spark his boys’ basketball team.
    It worked.

  • The best presents aren’t under the tree

    It’s been awhile since I was able to spend Christmas with both parents and my siblings.

    Since coming to Henry County we’ve been deterred by weather and ill-timed car problems.

    You see, it’s about a four-hour drive to get to my dad’s home in Western Kentucky — there’s no direct route, and the path is easily made treacherous by the slightest amount of snow.

    Mom’s place is only about 2.5 hours away, a much easier trek, mostly by interstate.
