Both Katlyn and Ben are 2013 graduates of the University of Louisville’s College of Education. Katlyn is employed as a second grade teacher at Eminence Elementary.

After the long-awaited $60,000 state grant came through, Eminence officials hope to make a splash with a new feature in Coach D Park by next Memorial Day, Mayor Drane Stephens said.
Eminence had a false start on this project five years ago, when city officials received notification they had gotten the Department of Local government grant to help pay for a water feature commonly called a “splash pad” or a “sprayground,” Stephens recalled. State officials changed their minds and switched that award to another city.

Over the last four years I have witnessed hundreds of high school sporting events and the one impression that always sticks in my mind is the vast amount of difference in talent levels and performance among high school teams – even among schools placed in size classifications such as football and track.
I have witnessed teams that performed so poorly that the sport they were playing was almost unrecognizable.
I would walk away and say to myself, “That has to be the worst team in the state.”
