  • Law, Downey Jr. great duo in Holmes film

    Who knew Sherlock Holmes was so cool? If you're like me, then the idea that comes to mind when you hear the famous detective's name is that of a middle-aged man with a funny hat, a pipe and an uncanny ability to solve complicated crimes by simply paying close attention to every detail. That doesn't mean director Guy Ritchie's new version of Holmes is an unfaithful adaptation of the beloved Sir Arthur Conan Doyle creation.

  • New Year's comfort foods that won't hit your waist

    Most cultures have their share of comfort foods that seem to make a bad day better. Or perhaps they evoke feelings of family or special holidays. The trouble with most comfort foods is that they tend to be carbohydrate-laden, high-calorie items that can pack on the pounds, something you may not want to do after making healthy resolutions.

    There are ways to turn favorite comfort foods into healthier options that still satisfy. Consider these modifications to foods you love.

  • 'Winter blues' may be sign of something more serious

    The arrival of the New Year brings with it many things besides just a turn of the calendar. A time for reflection, resolutions and looking forward, the New Year represents a clean slate, one many will welcome after a rather tumultuous 2009.

    Another image the New Year invokes is that of winter weather, replete with its short days and snowstorms. While the official arrival of winter is 10 days before the turn of the calendar, for many the unofficial start of the coldest season is when the holiday season ends and the new calendar year begins.

  • Aces' hot shooting knocks off Tell City

    LINCOLN CITY—When two reserves combine for 33 points on 63 percent field-goal shooting, it usually bodes well for their basketball team and poorly for their opponent.

    Such was the case in Owensboro Catholic’s 61-48 win over Tell City for fifth place in the PSC Holiday Classic Saturday.

    Neil Lanham, a 6-foot-4 senior, was the ninth man to enter the game for the Aces but led them with 20 points on 8 of 13 field-goal shooting and 3 of 5 free throws.

  • Rappites beat Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Strong offensive rebounding and three-point shooting fueled a hot start that carried New Harmony past Cannelton 67-44 in the Bulldog Invitational boys basketball tourney Saturday evening.

    The Rappites hit 6 of 12 three-point shots in the first half as they built a 42-9 lead.

    They also grabbed 10 offensive rebounds that half and scored directly off four of them.

    They built a 24-0 first-quarter lead with four three-point baskets, three rebound baskets, a transition layup, a 12-footer from the wing, and two free throws.

  • Crusaders nip Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Cannelton was unable to hit free throws late in a 46-43 loss to Columbus Christian in the first game of the Bulldog Invitational boys basketball tourney Saturday morning.

    The Bulldogs trailed 44-41 with 43 seconds left when Jordan Mattingly scored on a rebound basket.

    Mattingly was fouled on the play and went to line with a chance to tie the game, but he committed a lane violation on the shot.

    Cannelton immediately committed a foul to send the Crusaders to the foul line for a double bonus. They missed both free throws. 

  • PC splits PLAC games

    “Good teams win ugly games and it was pretty ugly,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “We didn’t shoot the ball very well (30.2 percent from the field, 31.6 percent on free throws) and we got outrebounded so bad.”

    The quicker Bulldogs did force 27 West Washington turnovers.

    Taylor Lawalin hit a three-point shot with a minute left to give Cannelton the lead for good.

  • Mater Dei too quick for Marksmen

    EVANSVILLE—“We gave up too many turnovers,” Tell City Coach John Lyons said of the Marksmen’s 54-30 girls basketball loss to Mater Dei Saturday.

    Mater Dei pressed at times, “but we turned the ball over in the halfcourt too,” said Lyons. “They were quick and they anticipated the pass well.”

    Freshman center McKenzie Hayes led Tell City with nine points on three field goals and 3 of 7 free-throw shooting.
