    Based on its latest annual report, which was released last week, one of the safest places to be on the highway in 2010 was in a vehicle driven at dawn on a Sunday in March by a woman in her late 60s or early 70s who was making her way between Owensboro and Henderson on the Audubon Parkway.

  • Warriors hang on to beat Berea

    Through their first four games, the Eminence Warriors defeated their opponents with relative ease.

    Last week against Berea, despite a first half that showed some of the same ease, the Warriors held on to a seemingly tenuous lead, spending the bulk of the fourth quarter in their own territory offensively and defensively.

    Head coach Steve Frommeyer said the team played well in the first half, with the exception of the opening drive.
