  • Beisner hopes first film raises disease awareness

    Feleica Stewart jokes that Goshen resident Thomas Beisner is another member of her family.

    That added a little bit of pressure for Beisner when he was producing a documentary about her son, late University of Kentucky basketball signee John Stewart.

    “She calls me her angel and her son which, now that the documentary is done, is a great thing,” Beisner said Monday. “But it added a lot of fear leading up to that.”

  • Slugger Reed the star for North Oldham 12’s

    Austin Reed can do it all for North Oldham Little League’s state-bound 12-year-olds.

    Reed can pitch, throwing a hard fastball and serving as ace of the rotation.

    He can flash the leather, showing uncommon range at the shortstop position.

    And he can hit, as evidenced by home run balls he’s hit that’ve gotten lost in the forest behind Walsh Park’s Brad Clifford Field.

    “He really does a lot of things well,” manager Doug Oak said.

  • NOLL a threat in Bowling Green

    North Oldham Little League’s 12-year-olds are out to finish the job this time.

    Two years ago as 10-year-olds, NOLL advanced to the state championship game, falling to Owensboro Southern.

    Last year NOLL made it to the semifinals of the 11-year-old state tournament before bowing out.

    The NOLL 12’s dominated the district tournament last week and now they’re off to Bowling Green to try to finally capture a state crown.

  • Earley: When God answers prayer ‘Not yet’

    A pastor thought God gave him an idea and he presented it at the church board meeting. After giving his most impassioned plea and really “selling” the idea, the board voted down the pastor’s proposed changes 12-1. The head elder looked at the pastor and said, “Well pastor, its 12 votes to 1. It looks like you’ve been outvoted and it is time to go home. Will you please close in prayer?”

  • Recipients of Trent DiGuiro scholarship named

    Twenty years ago this month, our son Trent was murdered as he sat celebrating his 21st birthday on his front porch in Lexington. The aftermath of such tragedy was, as you can imagine, devastating to our family, but it was also devastating to our local community.

    Because Trent was a University of Kentucky football player and that the crime went unsolved for so long; this case played out over the following 20 years with many twists and turns, even making the local and national news as recently as last month.

  • The pen is mightier than the sword

    For the past quarter of a century, I have been with the same bank. It is a fine, loyal institution that has seen me through good times and bad. They were there for me with a low interest car loan when no one else would even look at the credit of a waitress struggling to make ends meet for her three kids.

    More than once, they removed overdraft charges when I inadvertently made a mistake in my checkbook.
