  • UK freshman adjusting to college football

    Linebacker Kash Daniel knew playing football at Kentucky and in the Southeastern Conference would be a big adjustment. What the former Paintsville High School star did not know was just how big it would be.

    “It has been challenging mentally every day to prepare yourself to go work and do everything you have to do 100 miles per hour no matter what kind of drill it is. It can be a walk through, a lift session. You better bust your tail or you will be an outcast and people will see that very clearly. Just the pace of the game is so different,” said Daniel.

  • Lessons learned from brussel sprouts

    Ever since I can remember I have hated brussel sprouts. I remember my mom serving them from time to time, and I always had to eat at least one. And one was always about 15 too many for me.

    Anyway, I cannot ever remember voluntarily eating a brussel sprout. As an adult I have never tossed any fresh frozen brussel sprouts in my grocery cart or even tried them at a potluck. I apologize to those of you who love brussel sprouts, but they are just not for me.

  • Three good stream floats for smallmouth bass

    Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.

    Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.

  • From shock to frenzy

    After the shock of Sunday morning’s massacre at a night club in Orlando began to wear off, the frenzy began.
    The frenzy was not about finding out what truly happened, but centered on who could make the most political hay out of the tragedy.

  • Taxpayers deserve better

    Spencer Magnet Editorial

    When Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump called a press conference in April to announce his office would no longer be offering 24/7 patrols following a vote by the fiscal court to cut his payroll budget by nearly $100,000, he refused to give details about his schedule. Understandably, he wanted to keep those details under wraps so as not to provide a green light to criminals.
