  • Look for more personality from Willis next season

    Ask Derek Willis a question during a media interview session and he’ll give you a straight forward answer. He does not dodge questions. He just doesn’t go overboard with answers.

    For his girlfriend, Keely Potts, that’s frustrating because she doesn’t think Kentucky fans have had a chance to see his real personality.

  • A bridge to the future

    Sometime in the very near future, the Blue Bridge that has carried motorists across the Salt River in Taylorsville for nearly eight decades will become just another memory.

    Transportation officials announced recently that traffic could be crossing the new bridge, built adjacent to the Blue Bridge, in just a few days. Then crews will turn their attention to demolishing the old span.

  • The frustrations of T-ball

    I love baseball. The fundamentals of the game are simple. It’s about catching, throwing, hitting and running. In fact, if you pick up a baseball, it’s like your brain automatically knows that object is for throwing. Give a baseball to a one-year-old, and he or she will taste it of course, but then they will throw it.

    The game is so easy, that those running our youth baseball leagues in America decided to introduce it to children at a very young age. Thus, in the 1950s, T-ball was born.

  • Expose the pensions of politicians

    Kentucky Roll Call publisher and American hero Lowell Reese, who was exposed to Agent Orange decades ago while fighting communism as a battalion commander in the jungles of southeast Asia, made the ultimate sacrifice for his country when he boarded his final flight from earth last week.

    Reese took the oath to defend this country and its Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic” seriously.

  • Agriculture - Former FFA student now a large-scale farmer

     

    Ryan Bivens of Hodgenville may not have started his career on a family farm, but farming has been in his blood since high school. Bivens is a graduate of Spencer County High School.

    The 37-year-old and Misty, his wife of 14 years, are first-generation farmers.

    “My farming career started as an FFA project,” Bivens said.

    As a sophomore, he raised 34 acres of soybeans.

    “It’s blossomed and took off from there,” he said.
