  • Kentucky Bancshares reports earnings for 4th quarter of 2011

    Kentucky Bancshares, Inc., parent company of Kentucky Bank, reported an increase of $748,000, a 15% increase, in year to date earnings for 2011 compared to the same time period in 2010.

  • Also apply common sense when using technology

    If memory serves me correct, I believe I have stood on a soapbox before with words of judgment against and for technology.
    If I haven’t, please allow me to do so now.
    Technology. Wow. Cutting edge, interesting and all the more scary if you think about it.
    By no means am I an old person, but to think of how far along technology has come since I was five to now being 25, it simply blows my mind.

  • Don’t be grudgin’ and judgin’


    There’s this woman.
    I’ve only met her in person two or three times, but she and I belong to the same professional organization of women authors and speakers, so I see her name continually.
    About 10 or so years ago she did something that I thought was reprehensible and I took great pleasure in knowing it’s one of God’s top 10 “thou shalt nots” and that she would one day reap what she had sown.
    That’s not just karma; that’s biblical — a double whammy.

  • Yellowjackets sting Breds Tuesday night in Versailles

    A tough, aggressive, swarming bunch of Woodford County Yellowjackets ran over the Harrison County Thorobreds Tuesday night taking a 55-47 victory.  
    The first half was all Woodford County as they moved the ball on offense getting good shots and hitting them and played hard-nosed defense limiting Harrison County.  

  • Injuries doom Fillies, Lady Cougars run away with the win

    The long bus trip north began without senior guard Emalee Little so the Fillies knew they were going to be shorthanded. Little, who was injured in the Montgomery County game, was in therapy Tuesday as the bus pulled away pointing toward Conner.  But Harrison County was compensating for the absence at guard trailing by only one at 14-13 at the end of the first period facing the powerhouse Lady Cougars (17-4).
