    ELIZABETHTOWN – It’s taken Laurie Goodlett some 20 years to learn one very valuable golf secret.

    It doesn’t matter how far you drive the ball, it’s your short game that makes the difference.

    Armed with her old-school bull’s-eye putter, the 42-year-old Lawrenceburg resident stayed consistent on the fast, hard greens and sunk the 51st Lady Bug Invitational competition Saturday afternoon.

  • COLUMN: Missing the date an indication that Title IX is working

    For several days last week, my Twitter feed was busy with what seemed to be countless reminders about Saturday being the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Title IX law.

    I clicked on links to stories about the pioneers of women in sport in the 1960s who might have been much of the impetus for the landmark legislation. I even got some information about ESPN3 launching a new station, called ESPNW, showing nothing but women's sports.

  • BASEBALL: Mudcats improve summer record

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats improved their summer baseball record to 7-4-1 with three wins over the past week.

    “I have been impressed with the boys as out schedule is again strong and they have shown some maturity in those come-from-behind wins this past week,” said Mudcat coach Chris Copenhaver, who actually had to miss several of the Mudcats' games last week.

    The Mudcats also notched two wins over the Morse Mustangs, of Danville, and salvaged a tie in another game with the same club.

  • God, not you, is responsible for success

    As I sit here this overcast Sunday afternoon, pondering and praying I will provide a message this week that will glorify God, my mind drifts to faith.
    Just exactly who do you and I put our faith in? How often do I pray and thank God for his blessings, yet in the back of my mind I still comfort myself with my own achievements and possessions.
    After all, what accomplishments or material items do I have which were not given me by the almighty God, my creator?
    Yet I often reflect on how much money I have in my checkbook, knowing my bills will be paid.
