  • Lighting up the town

    Workers with the Davis H. Elliott company of Roanoke, Va., installed new traffic lights last week at the intersection of KY 555, US 150 and KY 55 in Springfield. The work was part of the Kentucky Department of Transportation’s routine light maintenance program, and came at an estimated cost of $20,000-$25,000.

    SCC Sports Information

    Losing streaks are something that St. Catharine College baseball coach Luther Bramblett is not accustomed to in his eight years with the Patriots. So when his team dropped four consecutive games over the weekend, Bramblett was searching for the last time such a skid had occurred.

    “I don’t think we have lost four straight since the first year I was here,” said the Patriot coach. “But even in losing those four, we were in every game with a chance to win.”

    The bracket racket

    I’ve never really been a basketball fan, so my experience in picking brackets for the NCAA tournament is limited at best. So when the office decided to have a little contest, I was hesitant to expose my ignorance on paper, but I went ahead and filled out my brackets and turned them in.
