  • GRACE NOTES: Looking for a soul mate

     The other day posted on our newspaper’s Facebook page was a question for discussion: Do you believe in soul mates? Why or why not?

    Someone replied “Yes!” Another said he believes God puts the person meant for you in your life, and another said, “No. If there’s one for me, he must be lost because I have never found him. I really think it’s a fairy tale.”

    I love that answer.

  • BASKETBALL: LaRue locks up top seed

     Ivy Brown didn’t just do a little bit of everything to get the LaRue County Lady Hawks back on track Sunday afternoon – the senior forward did a lot of everything.

    Coming off its first 18th District loss in nearly two years, LaRue County rebounded behind Brown’s 28 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to top visiting Caverna, 67-45.

    With the way the LaRue County Lady Hawks worked to get back into the game Friday night, the final seconds against the visiting Green County Lady Dragons were even more difficult to bear.

    After LaRue County rallied from a 13-point halftime deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter, Green County senior guard Kayla Bale rebounded Mya Schrembs’ shot and made a jumper in the lane with 5 seconds left to stun the Lady Hawks, 63-62 in 18th District play.

  • Stretch of horrid weather time is perfect to plan for fishing

     With much of Kentucky covered in a sundae made of snow topped with a crust of ice, fishing season seems millennia away.

    The sun gets higher in the southern sky with each passing day; it is only a matter of time before this horrible weather pattern breaks. Use this dark and cold time to prepare for the inevitable coming of the spring fishing season.

    Get your gear organized. While we change lures or rigs in haste while fishing, most of us just shove things such as bags of soft plastic lures, jigs or leaders into the first pocket in our tackle bag we find.

  • COLUMN: Can you keep up your daily walk with God?

     Physical walking is one of the best exercises for our heart and lungs, but spiritual walking is very beneficial to our soul. “Enoch walked with God” (Genesis 5:22).
