  • Durbin fourth in Green All-Comers

    The LaRue County Cross Country Season got off to a “hot” start Thursday as the team traveled to Greensburg to compete in the six-team Green County All-Comers Meet. Temperatures exceeded 95 degrees, therefore the meet was modified to a 1.7 mile course instead of the usual 3.1 length.

    Both the girls and boys finished second overall in the six-team event.

  • Sunrise Volunteers

    Next door to the old Sunrise Manor Nursing Home is a building that is still being used by Sunrise Manor. This building is the daycare center. Elderly persons stay there while their sons and daughters or guardians work in the daytime.

    I’ll bet you didn’t know that every Wednesday from 11 a.m. until noon, Sunrise Volunteers visit the elderly at the facility.

    Volunteers sing songs, tell jokes and stories and read articles. Volunteers and day time residents enjoy each other’s company and fun is had by all.

  • A new walk for a new man

    When you accept the grace of God by faith, trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross for your sin, you become a child of God.

    Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature … all things have become new.”

    For the new Christian a metamorphose takes place like the caterpillar being transformed into a butterfly. Spiritually, we are a new person in Christ.

  • Automotive industry becomes regional point of pride

    For more than a century, America has had a fascination – a love affair, some say – with automobiles.

    Cars and trucks are more than transportation for us. In fact, few things are so deeply rooted in our culture. After all, most of us can hum the tune of “Little Red Corvette,” or “409” and recognize celebrity cars from Steve McQueen’s Mustang to Herbie the Love Bug.

    But part of what gives cars and trucks such a place in our hearts, especially in Kentucky, is our hand in making these celebrated machines.

  • Get the skills employers want most

    Every job requires a certain mix of skills and knowledge. A welder must read blueprints, retailers must have merchandising knowledge, software developers typically need to know C++ and so on.

    Yet, the skills that many employers value the most apply to nearly every position in every field. These skills, commonly referred to as soft skills, can give you an incredible edge whether you’re looking for your next career opportunity or already on the job.

  • Applicants: Show your soft skills before you even get the job

    There’s no doubt that employers value soft skills – work ethic, communications skills, a positive attitude and more.

    In fact, in a CareerBuilder survey of more than 2,100 hiring managers and human resources professionals earlier this year, 77 percent said soft skills were as important as hard skills. Sixteen percent said soft skills associated with personal attributes and character are more important than hard skills such as operating a computer program or machinery when evaluating candidates for a job.
