  • Santa Barr pulls something out of hat at last minute

     With the hours suddenly becoming minutes, it is time for Santa Barr to leap into action.

    Feeling like Mike Farner and waiting until the final moment to write this annual column, I quickly forced down a Snickers bar.

    I am back to normal. And Farner is still normal as he procrastinated even longer than I. But not only did he run out of time but he also found himself out of space.

    Without further delay, the deer have been fed and my belly is full for a long night of delievering packages to the good little boys and girls.

    The early results have been impressive as a lot of young runners have joined the program and the results on the course have been strong.

  • Lady Cougars bounce back to reverse bad momentum

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming off a poor performance two days earlier in the Bullitt County Challenge, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars needed a big performance to regain some lost momentum.

         The maroon and gray did just that on Monday, turning back a small, but athletic John Hardin squad by a 42-37 score.

         It wasn’t a perfect performance, but it was far better than what the team did in the loss the previous Saturday against Lexington Catholic.
