Today's Features

  • The AcoUstiKats will bring four-part harmony with a pop sound to the Historic State Theater at 7:30 p.m. today.

    Fresh from appearances in season four of NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” the AcoUstiKats are an a cappella men’s chorus from the University of Kentucky. The group’s website describes its sound as “southern charm with a whole lot of swag” and “Justin Timberlake meets Kentucky Fried Chicken.”

    This was a disappointing week for basketball fans in Kentucky. The Wildcats lost in the NCAA championship game by a score of 60-54. One obvious difference was free throws. Connecticut made 10 of 10 free throws and Kentucky made only 13 of 24. Kentucky missed several front-end of 1-1 free throw situations in the second half when making two foul shots would have changed the game completely.

  • After almost 15 years in Congress and a few years rest, Ron Lewis said God called him to return to the preaching ministry.

    It was a simple decision for the 67-year-old who has moved from the inner halls of Washington, D.C., as the 2nd Congressional District's member in the U.S. House of Representatives to the pulpit of Youngers Creek Baptist Church in a rural corner of eastern Hardin County.

    “When God calls you, you feel at peace and content,” Lewis said.

    Finally it seems as if spring is ready to get here. I have returned from Missouri safe and sound and have been keeping really busy since coming home. As you will see as you continue reading the article today, things are getting busy in many of the areas around us. I love it because it means summer is revving up and all the great things that come with it. Thanks to all who took the time to notify me of upcoming events.

    So sorry I was unable to send my news to the paper last week. I had it typed and ready to go, but my desktop was in the shop and my laptop computer wouldn’t recognize the address I was trying to send my news too. I kept trying but you know those technical items have a mind of their own, and won’t cooperate. Someone called to find out if I was sick. So some of the announcements didn’t get in, and it’s too late this week.

    KENTUCKY WEATHER.It’s beginning to be spring like weather now. Get out and enjoy it. Lots of flowers are in full bloom. Also, it’s allergy weather. Chloe has been experiencing it.

    NCAA.Well to say the least it was very interesting this year. Kentucky Wildcats being runner-up when nobody thought they would even make it that far. I am still proud of the team.
