    Gone from the landscape of many schools today is the old-fashioned spelling bee. Count us among those lamenting its demise.
    While some elementary school classes might have a spelling bee, to our knowledge, there is no school-wide spelling bee at either South Christian or Pembroke Elementary
    Back in my school days, the classroom spelling bee to determine who would represent each class in the overall spelling bee was a big deal. Teachers promoted it and students considered it a major achievement to advance to the district-wide spelling bee.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks demolish John Hardin

    LaRue County senior pitcher Emillee Cundiff had a lot in common with the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs on Monday. Most notably, they both had trouble getting on base.

    Fortunately for Cundiff, her Lady Hawks teammates had no such issues.

    Junior second baseman Delany Eastridge was a home run short of the cycle and was 1-of-3 LaRue County players with at least three RBIs as the Lady Hawks pounded out 14 hits in a 12-0 rout of the host Lady Bulldogs in five innings.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks fall to Bruins

    The Central Hardin Bruins started fast Monday evening, while the LaRue County Hawks never got going.

    The Bruins scored five runs the first three innings, which was more than enough for the Central Hardin trio of senior Seth Givan, sophomore Blake Wheeler and freshman Brendan Grider, who shut down the Hawks for a 5-0 victory at Central Park.

    Central Hardin is off to a 3-0 start after finishing last season with back-to-back losses in the 17th District Tournament final and 5th Region Tournament quarterfinal.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Built upon the rock

     Jesus said, “I will build my church” (ecclesia). And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

    “Ecclesia” means a called out assembly or congregation; political (Acts 19:39); Christian (Ephesians 1:22,23); or national (Acts 7:38).

    God calls the saved out of the world to congregate in worship. This is the church in the world – in it but not of it. Jesus’ church is not synonymous with Christendom (Christians as a whole).
