  • Girls fall 56-33 to Jaguars

    The Lady Panthers scored just nine points in the second half, falling 56-33 to East Jessamine Saturday at home.

    “East Jessamine was a very good team,” head coach Paul Stone said in an e-mail. “We held them below their 74 points per game average, but were unable to convert some of our shots in the second half.”

    The Lady Panthers handled the press well early on, which led to some easy shots, Stone said. However, the team failed to make a run in the second half. “We never could score two possessions in a row,” he said.

    Throughout my high school career, I have had many magnificent and influential adults who have had an impact on both my future and my character.

  • Libraries foster a love for reading

    Of all the gifts that Benjamin Franklin gave us, one of the most far-reaching has to be establishing the forerunner of our country’s public libraries.

    They have been a mainstay in Kentucky almost from the beginning, when the first opened in 1795 at what is now Transylvania University in Lexington. Some historians believe it was also the first library outside of the 13 original colonies.

  • Story demonstrates it is possible to be too close to Christmas to see Christ

    The story of Jesus’ birth is a familiar story, and that is a problem at Christmas.

    It is possible to believe we know a story so well that it is no longer a story with a message. It is possible to feel we know people so well that we no longer look at them with any real curiosity. And it is possible for God to be so present in a familiar story that we lose the ability to even see him.

    We know this to be true because familiarity with the story of Jesus was a unique hurdle Jesus faced when he returned to his hometown of Nazareth.
