    Sometimes basketball provides an opportunity for a top performance outside the court.

  • Feeling the pinch at the pump

    The gas pump can put a pounding on families with its fluctuations and spikes in prices.

    By the same token, businesses that depend on transportation must find ways to absorb or adjust to the expense when fuel prices soar, as they have done in the past month.

    According to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of regular-grade gasoline is hovering around $3.77 per gallon nationally compared to about $3.48 per gallon a month ago and roughly $3.50 per gallon a year ago.

  • Kitchen Adventures: Introductions and Italian food

    Welcome to my kitchen.

    I’m probably like most of you, a self-made cook. I try to get fancy, slightly gourmet, with my cooking sometimes and at other times I’m looking for something quick to fix at the end of a tiring day at work.

    My passion for cooking leads me to drool over Food Network programs, collect a massive amount of cookbooks and skim websites such as Pinterest for the next recipe to try.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT: John Hardin rallies past LaRue in overtime (03/06)

    It wouldn’t have been strange to walk in the John Hardin locker room at halftime and hear Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” The Bulldogs found themselves in a nine-point hole after trailing by as many as 15 in the first 16 minutes.

    Instead of hitting the panic button, the Bulldogs stayed the course and continued to follow the game plan despite the deficit. Most importantly, they believed they could come back.
