  • GIRLS' EIGHTH REGION PREVIEW: Big Two could be Big Five

    Is it the Big 2? The Big 3? Or is it the Big 4? Could it even be the Big 5?

    No, the question is not about the latest in college football realignments. The question has everything to do with just how top-heavy the race for the girls' Eighth Region championship will actually become.

    But no matter how many teams eventually emerge as threats to make the trip to Bowling Green in March, the two constants are Anderson County and South Oldham, the same two teams that have been ranked at the top of the region the last two years.

  • Do you worship God, TV or churches?

    Much of the Old Testament reveals how many times the children of Israel strayed away from God by worshiping idols.
    Idolatry is basically the idea of placing faith in things created by man rather than things created by God.
    You hopefully remember the golden calf, baals, etc.  Are we much different?  It’s easy to place faith in our own accomplishments, our fine homes, jobs, cars — perhaps even our giant church buildings.
