  • In March, anything can happen

    The best and most exciting four days in sports just concluded Sunday night. The first two rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament proves that in the world of sports, almost anything can happen. Here’s a few take-aways:

    • March Madness is known for upsets, and the opening round is where many of these bracket busters take place. This year, there were few real surprises. Only five lower-seeded teams won games, and even some of them, such as Middle Tennessee, were not really shockers.

  • Outdoors - Largemouth being added to Taylorsville Lake

    The Fisheries Division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources plans to remove smaller largemouth bass from Beaver Lake in Anderson County to improve the quality of bass and sunfish. The removed bass will be released into Boltz Lake in Grant County and Taylorsville Lake in Spencer, Anderson and Nelson counties.

  • In like a lion...out like a lamb

    The old saying, “In like a lion…” has held true so far for the month of March. It seems that in the first couple of weeks we have seen many facing troubled times, for some, the worst times of their lives. The truth is that some, even in our own church, are struggling in different ways that many of you are not aware of.

    We each have different ways of dealing with struggle, in whatever form it takes. Some share their struggles, while others hold in and seemingly walk around as if everything is great.
