  • EARLIER: Judicial center fence issue not cooling down

    A fence being built around a huge air-conditioning unit at the Shelby County Judicial center to the tune of $109,197 has raised a great deal of questions about how that project is funded, how the decision was reached to fund it and what would happen to the money if it were not used in that capacity.

  • What we think: Building fence is injudicious decision

    A lot of you apparently want to vent about the 13-foot screen being built around the air-conditioning unit outside the Shelby County Judicial Center, and we don’t blame you.

Kentucky was only 20 years a state, and the congregation surely must have prayed for divine intervention in its growth and the safety of its settlers.

    This Sunday, that 200th birthday will be celebrated at Dover, and a lot of folks I know will be there – most notably, I predict, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. They are always there.

  • Rockets ready to reload for another run

    The goals for the Shelby County girls’ golf team this season are twofold – 1. get back to Bowling Green and 2. get back into the Top 10.

    The Rockets finished fourth – only two shots out of second-place – last fall in the State Championships at Bowling Green Country Club.
