    More than 1,000 Kentuckians die each year from drug overdoses, more than 200 of them from heroin. Heroin use has surged over the past few years, contributing to drug overdoses becoming a more common cause of death than car accidents in Kentucky. This is a serious public health crisis – one that must be fought on many fronts at once.

  • Ali vs. Rocky

    The Greatest!

    That’s the self-imposed title Muhammad Ali gave himself early in his career, and the same title most pundits have used to describe him over the past several days in the wake of his death Friday at the age of 74.

    Ali was indeed one of the greatest to ever step into the ring. He was pure showman, able to capture and keep an audience’s attention, and he introduced a fresh, new boastfulness into the world of sports. We can debate about whether that was good or bad, but Ali made it fun.

  • Spencer grad on scholarship to SCC surprised

    Kyle Alexander, a 2016 graduate of Spencer County High School, who had accepted a partial scholarship offer to play golf at St. Catharine College, was surprised at the news the school would be closing.

    “I was very shocked because when I got the news, I didn’t know where to start on trying to go somewhere else,” said Alexander, who found out Wednesday his college plans had been disrupted.

    He chose SCC because they had offered the partial scholarship and their campus is close to home.

  • St. Catharine College announces closure in July

    St. Catharine College, a small Catholic school outside of Springfield, will close its doors in July because of widespread financial problems.

    “It is with great sadness that I announce today, after exploring all possible options, the Board of Trustees has determined the challenges facing St. Catharine College are insurmountable and we will be closing the college at the end of July,” Board of Trustees chairman John Turner said Wednesday.
