  • COLUMN: Back to the Ball Park

    When somebody’s on the job, you can often take them for granted. When they’re away, you quickly notice what they did, and you appreciate them even more.

    Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve had two Springfield Sun staff members on vacation, and I’ve gotten a refresher course in all that they do.

  • Coaching duo helped start all-star softball 10 years ago

    Ten years ago, they were on the field as members of Washington County’s first 11-12-year-old Little League softball all-star team. Now, they’re back on the field as coaches for this year’s 11-12-year-old all-stars.

  • Future is bright for 9-10 all-stars, coach says

    Washington County’s 9-10-year-old all-star team worked hard and learned a lot, despite winning one game and losing two in the district tournament at Columbia over the weekend.

  • Stars fall short of state berth

    Just a little short.

    That’s how things ended for the Washington County 11-12-year-old all-star softball team in Columbia Monday night.

    As the team faced Russell County for the second time in the district tournament, a win meant a trip back home to play in the state tournament, which will be hosted at Idle Hour Park. A loss just meant a trip back home.

    Washington County lost its final game 6-5, and looking back, head coach Christy Baker said it was a matter of not coming through with runners on base.

  • Maryland to Kentucky reunion starts Friday

    If you’ve ever wanted to know more about your ancestors and their roots, an event that is coming to Springfield this weekend might be just what you’ve been looking for.

    The Maryland to Kentucky and Beyond reunion is set to begin on Friday and conclude on Sunday at St. Catharine College, and there will be no shortage of avenues for learning how to better research your personal ancestry.

  • Practice safety when working around home

    Electricity is an essential part of our daily living. While it makes our life easier, it can also cause harm if precautions are not taken while working around the home. The American College of Emergency Physicians observes that more accidents will occur in the home than in the workplace. Therefore, it is important to protect yourself by practicing proper safety habits.

    Follow these tips to maintain safety:

  • Pink fire truck rolling to town

    A unique chance for local residents to contribute to Relay for Life is coming to Springfield this weekend in the form of a pink fire truck that is covered in more than 4,000 signatures.

    The truck was created by the Radcliff and Vine Grove Fire Departments in 2012 and dons the name “Donna Joy” in honor of Vine Grove Assistant Fire Chief Sam Pearson’s wife, who passed away from cancer.

    The truck has been making stops throughout central Kentucky over the last two years, and will visit Oil Pros in Springfield on Saturday.

  • WCPS shines with grant

    The Washington County School District has received recognition over the last couple of years for the strides students have made in raising test scores across the county.

    Now, some of the teachers are being noticed for their roles in the school system’s success.

    Washington County has been part of an integration grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation — through the Kentucky Department of Education — since 2011, and local teachers have been quick to make their mark on the program.
