  • CROSS COUNTRY: Sandidge takes fourth at State

    In a typical race, LaRue County senior Adam Sandidge usually kicks things into another gear after the first mile.

    That’s when he gets comfortable and keeps a steady pace, but Saturday wasn’t a typical race for him.

    Chest and leg pain prevented him from taking the intensity up a few notches, but Sandidge wasn’t going to let that keep him from another top-five finish at the KHSAA State Cross Country Championships.

  • COLUMN: Get the most out of your HVAC unit

     It’s a common misconception that purchasing a new home heating or cooling unit will automatically lower your energy bills. Purchasing a new energy efficient heating or cooling unit should lower your energy bills. However, this answer is not always so simple.

    Air conditioning and heating units are a part of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The full potential energy and cost savings of a new, energy efficient heating or cooling unit is only possible when the HVAC system is working with the home’s system.
