  • Wildcat golfers fall to Trimble, Gallatin

    “It was a little setback today,” coach Steve Galyon said. “Team scores have been coming down every time so you expect it to happen when young players are learning.

    Alex Hadden led the Cats with a 42, while Dillon Allen had his best round of the year with a 44. Isaac Klempner shot 52 and Jakob Beckley rounded out the scoring with a 53.

  • Civility is important everywhere

     By Lance Minnis

    An incident occurred today that really got me thinking about how we behave.

    I know some will scoff and call me a fuddy duddy or worse, and some may get mad because they see themselves in what I am about to say. Heck, I see myself in it at times, which only makes the point stronger.
