  • BASKETBALL: Hawks fall to Taylor

     The LaRue County Hawks expended so much energy trying to get back in the game against the visiting Taylor County Cardinals on Friday night that when the Hawks finally got close, they had nothing left.

    LaRue County cut a 24-point deficit to five late in the third quarter but ran out of gas against one of the 5th Region’s elite teams.

    Taylor County went on a 17-2 run in a 5-minute stretch late in the third quarter and early in the fourth quarter to run away from the Hawks for a 71-52 victory.

  • BASKETBALL: Win for Samantha

     The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ 1-2-2 half-court trap is designed to get opponents out of their rhythm on offense and create some easy scoring chances for the Lady Hawks.

    Against 5th Region rival Taylor County on Friday night, it was mission accomplished on both accounts.

    With 6-foot-1 senior forward Ivy Brown on top, the Lady Hawks flustered the Lady Cardinals into 18 turnovers and 32 percent shooting from the field on their way to a 69-37 victory in Hodgenville.

  • Arctic chill increases electric bills

     The big chill of 2014 has given home heating units a workout and has increased electric bills, with record-setting cold from a polar vortex stretching further south than normal.

    In January, temperatures for Nolin RECC members averaged 27 degrees, the coldest in 11 years. On Jan. 6, the United States set a record for the coldest day since 2000 with the average temperature nationwide at 17.9 degrees.

  • Spring fire season begins Feb. 15

     It doesn’t make sense for wildfires to start easily when Kentucky has had such a run of cold, wet weather but how wet or cold the ground is has little to do with how vulnerable dead grass is to a spark.

  • COLUMN: Make the most of your time

     Even if we live to an advanced age, we are on earth for only a brief time. So, we want to make the best use of what time we are given and be found as good stewards when we arrive at the end of our journey.

    God’s word gives some helpful suggestions for making the most of our time.  Colossians 3:23 NLT says, “Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you are working for the Lord rather than for people.”
