  • Pioneers halt Warriors' run

    Stifling man-to-man defense brought the Eminence Warriors’ season to a grinding halt last week.

    The Warriors postseason run — their best in seven years — ended when they ran into Simon Kenton. The Pioneers defense was so tight, the Warriors shot just 22 percent from the field in a 64-33 loss in the first round of the 8th Region tournament.

    Warriors coach Chris Nethery summed the game up in a sentence.

    “Their defense forced us into a lot of bad shots that led to easy transition baskets for them,” he said.

  • Past personal history speaks to our present

    Serendipity shined on me this past week.
    When I moved to northern Kentucky after high school, I always drove by a house barely visible from the road in Smithfield en route to I-71. In between the trees that lined the driveway, I stole glimpses of a Federal style house far back a gravel drive surrounded by fields. I could only see the house long enough to instill more curiosity, wonder and frustration, which taxed my curiosity in epic proportions over the last 20 plus years.
    Rewind with me back a couple of weeks.
