  • Must. Get. More. Sleep.

    I am not an exemplary figure when it comes to good sleeping habits. In the past, and even sometimes now, I sleep whenever I can. I also tend to be a night owl and a morning zombie, so the idea of early to bed and early to rise is one I am working to embrace, but I definitely have progress to make in that area.

  • Girls tennis team faces Anderson

  • Active kids are happy kids

    As our lives get busier, it becomes increasingly difficult to make sure our children stay active. We often think that organized sports and structured activities are the answer, and maybe they are for some.

    Hunters required to complete a hunter education course to legally be in the field, but who haven’t had time to get their orange card, don’t have to miss Kentucky’s spring turkey season April 16 through May 8.
    Kentucky’s hunter apprentice opportunity – the Temporary Hunter Education Exemption Permit – allows a person otherwise required to carry a course completion card, to use the one-time, one-year exemption instead. Hunter education is mandatory when a hunter turns 12 years old, and includes those born on or after Jan. 1, 1975.

  • Joe Dan Gold’s one shining moment belongs to the ages

    The man who fame forgot. It’s hardly an original sentiment, but too often appropriate.
    Joe Dan Gold was buried Saturday near his hometown of Benton in Marshall County. An Internet obituary intended to highlight his 68 years was well intentioned, but too shallow by 94 feet at least.
