Blue shot 14 of 24 on free throws. Sophomore Jaden Pardee was the game's leading scorer...

    Susan Metcalf|Updated Jan 21, 2021

However, my roommate was the undisputed Queen of Frugality. I can honestly say I could not have drawn a better roommate than Maureen Johnson...

Did they ever even think to check the meaning of the name? It’s been said that even if unknown, the babe/child will grow into and live up to their name. Our daddy sure lived up to his name; he was ‘STRONG AS AN EAGLE’ and ‘BRAVE’. Mom was the ‘GRACEFUL ONE’. The source of a neighbor’s name is Hebrew and means ‘CHRIST LOVE’. It fit him. Another neighbor’s name meant ‘GRACE AND M...

But let us be clear; Carter County Public Health is, and has always...
