  • State Little League Tournament: NOLL 10’s finish on high note at state

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham’s 10-year-olds went into their last game of the Little League State Tournament Monday playing for pride.

    NOLL had already been eliminated from advancing after losing its first two games, 14-13 to Hazard/Perry Saturday and 12-11 to Bowling Green East Sunday.

    So in facing Ashland American Monday, NOLL was looking to end its state tournament trip on a high note.

    That’s what the NOLL 10’s did, holding on for a 9-7 win on a sun-baked afternoon at Ephram White Park.

    Dana DeYoung won the silver medal in the 33-40 women’s middleweight black belt division.

    Ty Clayton won bronze in the 8-9 boys black belt board breaking competition.

  • State Little League Tournament: North 12's run away with Pool A

    NOLL went 3-0 in Pool A play at Ephram White Park, winning its three games by a combined 36 runs. That earned the squad a spot opposite Paintsville in a state semifinal that was played Tuesday night after the Era’s press deadline.

    NOLL capped off its perfect pool play record with a 10-4 win against a Campbellsville team that won the state title last season as 11-year-olds.

  • Truitt: Riding the rails with grumpy

    Acting in my role of “Mom the Chauffeur,” I hauled my teen daughter to Grand Rapids, Iowa last week for her Rotary Youth Conference. That gave me three days to fill with my six and seven-year-olds, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that Grand Rapids offers a number of family-friendly activities. Our time there was only slightly marred by an old man so cantankerous he made Archie Bunker look like Happy Goodman.

  • Mueller: It’s a whole new ballgame

    On a summer afternoon I was listening to a radio broadcast of a Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals baseball game. I heard the announcer say, “It’s a brand new ball game.” That meant the score was tied. It’s like starting all over again.
