JFK basketball coach patiently waits

With the start of the high school basketball season just weeks away, most area teams are practicing at full throttle. Warren John F. Kennedy High coach Mark Komlanc is, well, somewhat stuck in neutral as he waits for all of the cogs of his engine to be put in place. Because of Kennedy’s ...

Destiny: JFK faces Redskins

Howland seeks Trumbull’s first soccer title

Eagles take flight

INDEPENDENCE — Friday night wasn’t an ideal evening for quarterbacks. Blustering winds combined with bitterly cold conditions made for a miserable night to be throwing the ball around Independence High School’s Alumni Field. Apparently no one told that to John F. Kennedy’s Christian ...
