  • Hawks fall to Green in District championship

     HORSE CAVE – After playing so well to start the fourth quarter, the LaRue County Hawks were left to wonder what might have been had they not dug so big of a hole Friday night.

    Second-seeded LaRue County trailed the top-seeded Green County Dragons by 25 late in the third quarter and rallied to within single digits, but the deficit was too great to dig out of in an 85-68 loss in the Boys’ 18th District Tournament title game at Caverna.

  • COLUMN: The things we know of God

  • Sunrise Volunteers to dedicate hymn books

    At our recent board meeting, we updated our active and inactive volunteer list and went over some of our planned activities for residents. We also discussed our need to replace some of our hymn books which are showing signs of wear and tear.

    We are going to obtain 11 new hymn books. In the back of the books we are going to dedicate each book to the memory of a recently deceased resident, Bobby Morris.
    The board thought this was appropriate since Bobby was a good Christian and well-liked by staff, volunteers and residents.

  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors: The fish are there and they will bite

    FRANKFORT, Ky. – The cold, muddy water coursing through many rivers in Kentucky right now brings another round of dread in anglers. This situation seems depressing, but for anglers with level 10 cabin fever after this long, dark winter, it is good news.

    When the rivers clear and stabilize, the sauger and walleye fishing will take off downstream of Green River Lake, Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.
