  • Lady Panthers golf team ready to compete in 2013 season

    The Carroll County High School golf teams have a new home this season: Fairway Golf Course in Wheatly, Ky. and Perry Park Country Club in Perry Park, Ky.

    Athletic Director Paul Stone said Tuesday that the matches moved from General Butler State Resort Park because Fairway and Perry Park offer more holes – 18 at Fairway and 27 at Perry Park – as well as a driving range, both of which are beneficial to the players. It also was easier to schedule matches there.

  • ‘Of course I’m right’

    Years ago I wrote a book about idols, which is just another word for sin.

    An idol is whatever you turn to first — a person, possession, position, relationship, substance, belief or experience — for comfort, security, identity, meaning, etc. Basically, anything other than God.

    As I wrote the book, I got halfway through it and decided I was tired of being smacked upside the head with my own idolatry.

    Sheesh. All I wanted to do was write about other people’s idols/sin and make a boatload of money.
