Saving Money in the Kitchen in 2019


In addition to New Year’s resolutions to get more fit and losing weight, resolutions to save money are also popular. Unfortunately, as with weight-loss resolutions, 80% of people fail on their financial resolutions by February of each year. Just as with food-related resolutions, money-saving resolutions can come in the form of personal challenges, which might turn into lifetime changes. One […]

Lexington 28 Rockdale 26



If you like good defense, turnovers, and poor shooting, you missed the game of the year Friday night in Rockdale. Lexington took to the court minus its top scorer due to loss of composure in the Tuesday evening game. The Eagles played inspired defense and a deliberate offense to capture the win. However, the Eagles showed a weakness at the […]

Sports Thoughts



The Eagles did an excellent imitation as ‘brick layers’ from the free throw line. They are lucky they did not lose the game because of their free throw abilities. The Lady Eagles are winning because of their defense. The girls get after the opposition’s ball handler, causing frustration. There are four of them, so they don’t get tired, but the […]
