    FRANKFORT – The deepest snow since Bill Clinton roamed the White House pounded Kentucky this week, leaving in its wake stranded cars, sore backs from shoveling snow and grumbling citizens.

    It seems remote now, but in just a couple of weeks, we’ll be slipping on short sleeve fishing shirts and hitting the water. This bracing cold will soon pass.

    Last week’s snowstorm prevented the Grayson County Lady Cougars from returning to the court after Valentine’s Day. In a game that ultimately served as their regular-season finale, the Lady Cougars beat Breckinridge County 68-59 on Saturday, Feb. 14.

  • An OldFashioned Rabbit Hunt

    It was the middle of January and it was going to be a beautiful day; the weatherman was predicting about 60 degrees for the high. A couple of friends of mine wanted to go on a rabbit hunt. We met about 9 a.m. at one of their farms on the other side of Clarkson. This was Robert (Fred) Logsdon’s farm, his brother Freck was along, and of course me.

  • Wildcat fan tossed before...

    Grayson County Middle School seventh grade boys won against Edmonson  County on Monday, Dec. 15, 54-43.
    The game started with a strong Cougar presence and nearing the end of the first quarter, fans were getting rowdy. A referee stopped the game with 41.5 seconds left in the quarter to eject a Wildcat fan from the stands. School personnel intervened and the gentleman was led out of the gym by a plain-clothes officer, followed by another Wildcat fan who was with the man.
