  • Now’s the time to catch bluegill and sunfish


    May is a special time for anglers who chase redear sunfish and bluegill as they move into the shallows to spawn.

    “I think we still might be a week or so from the peak for redear fishing,” said Maj. Shane Carrier, assistant director of law enforcement for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “The old timers say the timing is all about the full moon in May, but this year the full moon isn’t until May 21. I do best the second week and going into the third week of May.”

  • Adebayo loves spending time in the gymnasium

    Whenever he can, Kentucky signee Bam Adebayo likes to be in the gym … and not just when he is working out or playing a game.

    “I am in the gym every day. I just love being in the gym. Even if I am just sitting there, and sometimes I do that, I love it,” said Adebayo. “I’ve always been that way.”

    Kentucky coach John Calipari has not tried to add his feelings about Adebayo, who was a double-double machine in high school.

  • What’s in a name?

    The other day I ran across an interesting article about colors and how we see them. It seems that there is some question whether we can really see colors if we don’t have a name for them.

    I’ve always wondered about this, because I’ve noticed that my wife often calls one blouse “eggplant” and another “maroon.” To me, they are both just purple–one a little darker maybe, but still just purple.

  • Lady Bears roll to 15-3 win


    On the night they celebrated their seniors, it was an eighth-grader who delivered the big blow for the Spencer County Lady Bears during their 15-3 win over Thomas Nelson High School.

    Elisabeth Huckleberry smacked a line-drive grandslam homerun over the fence in left centerfield in the bottom of the second inning to put Spencer County up 6-2, and they never looked back on their way to a big victory Thursday.

  • A bowl for UK in 2016?

    After failing to get to a bowl the last two years despite having great chances to do so each year, coach Mark Stoops knows many fans are disgruntled and need to see improvements on the field to believe again in the program like they did when he first got to UK.

    He said the maturity of quarterback Drew Barker, who started games at the end of last season, is one reason to be optimistic.

  • Bears win two


    The Spencer County Bears went 2-1 last week, improved their overall record to 15-6 but had a six-game winning streak halted by Louisville Ballard on Thursday. They are scheduled to be home against Oldham County on Thursday and will host Carroll County on Friday.
