  • Cameron Dawson competes at state golf tournament

    LaRue County’s Cameron Dawson played last week in the KHSAA State Golf Tournament.

    The freshman’s day started with an uncharacteristic triple bogey and he did’t settle down until the back nine. Dawson ended up with a 12-over-par 84 to miss the cut by five strokes.

    “I haven’t had much experience playing at 7 in the morning,” Dawson said. “The course was wet and playing really long. The wind started to pick up on the seventh or eighth hole. That made it even more difficult.”

  • You can lower your risk

    Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, second only to lung cancer.

The specter of breast cancer makes it no surprise that women are eager to seek various ways to reduce their risks of developing this potentially deadly disease.

  • Young women can get breast cancer, too

    At the age of 12 to 15, many young women are experiencing the body and life changes that accompany adolescence. It can be difficult to imagine that breasts that are just beginning to develop may contain cancer. But such is the reality for some girls.
