  • I can't believe it

    I am really opposed to the recently passed tax bill by the Republicans.

    You can be a Democrat or a Republican but most of all I’m an accountant.

    Numbers don’t lie.

    You see I hold three degrees to include one in accounting and a Master of Business Administration. Before I retired, I spent decades in accounting to include a few years as an Internal Revenue Agent in government, a Director of Student Financial Aid at a nonprofit college and mostly in a manufacturing company.

  • Commanderettes come up short in Bardstown classic

    A good Christmas break might just be what the Washington County girls’ team needs after it failed to capture a win in either of its first two games at the Bardstown Holiday Classic Tournament last week. The Commanderettes lost by scores of 49-36 to the Bourbon County Lady Colonels on Wednesday and 55-35 to the Marion County Lady Knights on Thursday. The girls have managed only two wins during their eight December games.

  • Trial date in last year's murder case may be in 2019

    No trial date was set Wednesday for the man accused of killing Robert Jones and Crystal Warner, and it’s beginning to look like the victims’ families may have to wait until February of 2019 for a trial.

    Craig A. Pennington, 53, is accused of killing Warner and Jones in July 2016, and is currently being held at the Marion County Detention Center.

    It’s a bittersweet holiday season for the families of Warner and Jones as attorneys on both sides of the case wait for evidence to come in.

  • Boone pleads guilty to superseding information

    Sports Writer

    Two separate trips into Bardstown resulted in two losses for the Commanderettes last week. After the 71-14 loss to Nelson County, a run-down Washington County team was unable to rally against the Bethlehem Banshees. But returning to their home court seemed to be the remedy, with the team picking up its second win of the season in a 48-41 victory over Henry County.

  • Commanders' streak broken

    In what seems to have become the theme of this season, the Commanders lost in heartbreaking fashion twice in the span of a week. After a late run got Washington County to within one point of forcing overtime, the Bethlehem Eagles slammed the door shut and took the victory 75-74. Days later, a buzzer beater gave the Henry County Wildcats the opportunity to beat the Commanders 87-86 in overtime.
