  • Ulis surprises many with rise in draft potential

     

    Sporting News columnist Mike DeCourcy always believed that Tyler Ulis would be a successful college basketball player and was one of the few who did not question why Kentucky coach John Calipari signed the 5-9 point guard out of Chicago two years ago.

    However, even DeCourcy didn’t expect Ulis to become Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, SEC Defensive Player of the Year and consensus All-American in his second season at UK and a likely first-round draft pick in June.

  • Up a creek without a paddle? Trust God

    When I was a teenager, I went on a canoeing trip with a church youth group. For some reason the youth leader trusted my friend James and me to be the first ones down the river. He must have thought we were pretty responsible because he placed his young son in the canoe with us.

    I don’t know if we were responsible or not, but we sure weren’t experienced.

  • Holy Cow! Realizing the power behind our words

    As an amateur wordsmith, I am fascinated with words and phrases. I love my cell phone because I have a dictionary and thesaurus all ready for my personal touch and I can research any word or phrase I hear.

    You can tell a lot about a person by the words and phrases they use. Of course, most use words and phrases they have no idea what they mean. Perhaps they heard somebody else say these words or phrases and so they incorporated them into their vocabulary, which, says more about them than anything else.

  • Sheriff cuts back patrols

     

    Around the clock law enforcement provided by the Spencer County Sheriff’s Office ceased Monday at midnight following the fiscal court’s vote earlier that day to cut nearly $100,000 from Sheriff Buddy Stumps proposed payroll budget.

    “This is a very sad day in my career to have to make an announcement like this,” Stump told television reporters who gathered in front of his office, just a few hours after he sent out a news release announcing the change.

  • Court votes 3-2 to cut Stump’s budget

    The Spencer County Fiscal Court voted 3-2 Monday morning to reduce Sheriff Buddy Stump’s requested payroll budget by nearly $100,000. Stump had asked for $779,000 to spend on deputy payrolls, but the court’s approved amount was for $680,000.
