  • Down with Gospel Glitz

     My husband and I started a tradition a few years ago of attending Christmas Eve service at a church we’ve never attended before.
    That can be good and that can be not so good.
    Last year we went to a church in Orlando after hearing great things about it. We were flying out the next day from Orlando to visit our daughter who was in North Carolina at the time, so we decided to make Christmas Eve into a mini extravaganza with church, dinner afterwards, a walk downtown and a night at an Orlando hotel overlooking Lake Eola.

  • FRANKFORT FOCUS A Legislative Perspective on the Kentucky General Assembly

    As it does every year during the first full week of January, the General Assembly returned to the Capitol at noon last Tuesday, kicking off what will ultimately be 60 working days that will end in mid-April.

  • Safety first, even if the sun is shining

    It is without fail that around this time of year the gripers begin their tiresome lamenting of the school officials who decide to cancel school.
    My children are grown and have been out of school for several years. However, I remember the problems associated with finding child care on short notice or even having to take the day off myself.
    It goes with parenting.
    It’s what we signed up for believe it or not.
    As parents we agreed that we would see that our children were fed, bathed, educated and, most importantly, loved.

    Mike Aldridge,
    Sports Writer

    The Harrison County Fillies got some big help off the bench in the second quarter and second half to blow by the Lady Panthers of Augusta, 63-37, Thursday in Augusta.  The Fillies led at the end of each period and never trailed after the first basket of the game.
    Augusta senior guard, Samantha Kennard, made a jump shot to open the scoring but Harrison County scored the next 10 points to take a commanding lead.
