    Dudley deserves a Christmas biscuit after his hard work finding a methamphetamine lab under a trailer on Dec. 17. Dudley, a yellow Labrador retriever, is a K-9 drug dog with the Grayson County Detention Center.

    He was called in service by the Grayson County Sheriff’s Department to help with a drug investigation on Claggett Road in Leitchfield. The dog found a one-step process meth lab under the home of Daniel Ray Mudd, 32, and Amy Carter, 26. Both were arrested at the residence.

  • JV Cougars hang tough but fall to E'town

    The JV Cougars dropped a 39-32 decision Dec. 18 to host Elizabethtown.

    The Cougars were down two at 9-7 at the end of the first period and were playing well against the larger Panthers. By halftime the Cougars were down by six at 21-15, but were still very much in the game.

    In the third period, the Cougars made a great run on the Panthers, outscoring Elizabethtown 11-7 in the quarter and closing to within two of the Panthers at 28-26. The fourth period remained close until the final two minutes of the game with the Cougars within two of the host Panthers.

  • Don't limit faith to a public wall

    I am disappointed that in April our county was been permanently barred from posting the Ten Commandments in the Grayson County Courthouse. I am concerned that taxes will have to pay more than $47,700 for attorney fees and court costs for this battle.

    Having read the court case, which I reported on last April, I can’t see how the county can win this case.

  • Cougar varsity wins at E'town

    Grayson County’s boys’ varsity collected a 51-47 road win Dec. 18 at Elizabethtown in a game that had been postponed by ice two days earlier.

    The Cougars were down 15-14 after the first period and trailed at the half at 23-21. After three periods, the game was tied at 35. After taking the lead late in the fourth quarter, the Cougars held tight for the win by making several key shots from the foul line.

    The Cougars left E’town with a 5-0 record.

  • Joy at the pump

    Something extraordinary happened Monday that gave me a warm feeling all over.

    Despite the fact it was a cold December morning and I experienced a delightfully giddy glow, it has nothing to do with the Christmas season.

    Although, giving it a second thought, it will help make the season merry and bright. It was a common event which took place in an ordinary way but had a very happy ending.

  • Shop with a Cop helps 100 children

    Shop with a Cop served 60 children in the Grayson County area this year. The program, although separate, works in conjunction with the Grayson County Christmas Program. This year, organizers shopped for 60 children before the event, a change from the past, when law enforcement officers shopped with the children.

    “We were able to pre-shop and bargain shop, making the funds go further this year,” coordinator Kim Miller said.
