  • Lady Hawks advance in Region, fall to Panthers

    18th District Semifinal

    Lady Hawks 4, Hart 3 (4-1 PKs)

    The Lady Hawks Soccer team earned a hard-fought victory Thursday night in Lebanon as they outlasted the determined Lady Raiders of Hart County. At the end of regulation the score was tied 3-3. After two five-minute overtimes the score remained tied.

    The always entertaining and pressure-packed penalty kicks decided the winner. However, the most exciting part of the game took place with 19 seconds remaining in the game.

  • Hawks fall short of goal

    18th District Semifinal

    LaRue 3, Marion 2

    The Hawks got off to a slow start against host Marion County Tuesday partly due to the very wet and soft field conditions, which proved to be an equalizer for both teams. Marion County put two goals on the board before the Hawks got going.

    Senior Miguel Martinez scored a key goal for the Hawks which proved to be the jump start needed.

    “That was an important goal for our team which seemed to be rather flat from the start,” said Head Coach Derek Bell.

  • Reading Recovery coming to local elementary schools

    If you were to name the academic subject most important to learning, what would it be?

    The U.S. Department of Education (http://www2.ed.gov/parents/academic/help/succeed/part4.html) says it’s reading.

    Helping your child become a reader is the single most important thing that you can do to help the child to succeed in school—and in life. The importance of reading simply can’t be overstated. Reading helps children in all school subjects. More important, it is the key to lifelong learning.

  • It’s for the best: Gentle bulls and smaller babies

    When selecting a new beef bull there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Buying a bull that fits the specific needs of an operation is very important and will be different for every farm.

    Look at all the traits for each bull being considered and determine which one best fits your needs. Using tools such as Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) will help in the decision-making process.

    Two traits often considered as the most important are calving ease and temperament. Both traits are associated with added convenience, but they also have an impact on production.
