  • BOYS' TENNIS: Anderson pair goes down swinging

    LEXINGTON – This time, there was little else Ty Glover and T.J. Pham could do.

    The magic that had carried them in a surprising run through the Eighth Region and to a berth in the state tennis tournament suddenly came to an end last Thursday. The DuPont Manual team of Sam and Aaron Stromberg saw to that.

    The Stromberg brothers turned back everything that Glover and Pham could muster on the way to a 6-1, 6-2 win in the first round of the tournament at the University of Kentucky.

    “They were the best we have played,” said Pham, a junior.

  • Obama decision another example of how America is abandoning God

    My words here today are spiritual in nature, but unfortunately do touch on politics, which I generally despise.
    In God We Trust is an interesting part of America’s heritage. It’s hard to believe the greatest nation on earth, founded with such spiritual values, has all but abandoned God.
    Either God is who he says he is or he is not. We can either choose to follow his words and commands or we can suffer the consequences.
