Danville may have lost half a dozen games this season, but the Admirals discovered Saturday night that all losses are not created equal. Their first five defeats were neither as close, as meaningful nor as painful as No. 6, a 17-15 loss to Bardstown at Admiral Stadium. Victor Kremser's field goal with 1 minute, 47 seconds remaining allowed Bardstown to hand Danville a damaging loss in the district opener for both teams. The Admirals' fifth straight loss will likely cost them a shot at a district championship, and it might have doomed them to their first losing season in 22 seasons under coach Sam Harp.

If anyone can understand why Bardstown is only 2-4 this season, it is Danville coach Sam Harp. After all, his Admirals are only 1-5 going into Friday's Class AA, District 4 opener against Bardstown at Admiral Stadium. "They play big schools just like we do, because schools their size will not play them unless they have to. It is tough week in, week out to line up against people that have more players than you do and can two-platoon a lot of kids. Believe me, I understand that," Harp said.

BARDSTOWN - The Danville Admirals didn't need another fiery halftime speech from Sam Harp. Well, maybe they did, but before their coach had the chance to deliver that speech Friday night, the players did much of the talking in the locker room after a second straight lackluster first half. The Admirals answered their own challenge with a dominating second-half performance that gave them a 40-26 win over Bardstown in a critical Class AA district game. For the second week in a row, Danville followed a sloppy first half with a strong second half, rolling up 319 yards and holding host Bardstown to only 64 in the third and fourth quarters - but only after their halftime summit.

Jack Pogue of Danville never thought much about being in the business of making Kentucky bourbon like his ancestors, who began operating the H.E. Pogue Distillery Co. in Maysville in 1876. However, when he was going through some family heirlooms a few years ago with his son Peter, a recent law school graduate, they found the original recipes for Old Pogue bourbon. The recipes were handwritten by Henry Pogue III on three sheets of lined paper. The recipes intrigued Peter. He began researching the reintroduction of the Pogue Distillery in 1989, 40 years after it was sold.
