  • A few of my favorite things

    I love to go to movie theaters. There's just something about seeing a movie on the big screen that is exciting to me. Surround sound speakers and larger-than-life picture make the stories seem so much more real than watching at home.

    I also love to read mysteries, crime dramas and real-life survivor and hero stories. You can escape to anywhere in a good book.

    And I love to listen to all genres of music, but my favorite is country. Give me anything by Sugarland, Keith Urban and Little Big Town, and I'm set.

  • Grace Notes

    I'm trying to remember Jesus. Not that I've ever really forgotten him. But there once was a time when he was my first and highest thought.

    There once was a time when my relationship with him took priority and precedence over everything else.

    Somewhere, sometime, somehow in the past 30 years I pushed him aside, although that sounds harsh, a violent, one-time shove.

    I think it was more of a gradual crowding out by all the other stuff in my life, like a well-worn pair of pants that gets relegated to the back of the closet. Not tossed out, just pushed aside.

    It was the second time in three weeks that the Tigers (11-3) got the better of Shawnee State (4-8), having defeated them 62-58 in Portsmouth, Ohio on Nov.  24.

  • TC falls in first round

    Taylor County lost its opening game, but bounced back to upend Ballard Memorial 58-45 on Tuesday in the T.J. Samson Holiday Classic at Barren County High School.

    The Cardinals saw a 13-point lead shrink to four in the first half before Cody VanMeter’s three-point play enabled TCHS to move the lead back out.

    In the third frame, the Bombers again moved within four, but a Lloyd Stotts’ trey and VanMeter’s lane jumper spearheaded Taylor County’s double-digit win.
