Sometimes one of the stations is a fitness program like P90X, which uses DVDs that focus on developing specific parts of the body.

  • Seventy years of marriage and still each other's Valentines

    Sinatra may have said it best as he crooned, “Fairy tales do come true, it can happen to you, if you’re young at heart.”

    Robert and Mary Duggins, who live in Elizabethtown, have been living that fairy tale for their nearly 70 years of marriage.

    It all began with Sunday afternoon rides in his father’s 1941 Ford.

    They went to the same school and on Sunday afternoons, Mary often hung out with her friends in downtown Sonora. A friend of Robert’s would take her for drives and he would tag along in the back seat.

  • BOYS' PREP BOWLING: Home, Home On The Lanes (02/14)

    Don’t get him wrong, Josh Proctor loves being a member of John Hardin High School’s inaugural boys’ bowling team.

    He likes the camaraderie of his teammates, being able to meet new people and the dedication it takes to improve.
