  • Swinging into Summer shape

    Warm temperatures and sunny days add up to spring fever and that means getting outside and becoming more active after a long, sedentary winter.  Your list of outdoor projects has probably moved into the priority pile.  The urge to get your bicycle out of the garage or take an afternoon nature trail hike is growing. You might even be thinking about some of those New Year’s resolutions to get into better shape in 2010. 

  • Recovery effort continues at lake

    The search for a missing Ft. Knox soldier continued Tuesday at Taylorsville Lake, after the 22-year-old man disappeared while swimming Saturday.

  • Reds give fans optimism ... again

    It’s the first of June and the Cincinnati Reds are tied for first place in the NL Central with St. Louis.

    In recent years June is the month when reality sets in for most Cincinnati fans, even the most optimistic of us. The Reds have teased us many times since 1990, the year they swept the World Series in four games against the favored A’s, completing a surprising wire-to-wire first place run in their division. Since that title run, success and winning records have been few and far between.

    The Eric Bledsoe flap. Lemme get this straight ...

    • Linking John Calipari to Bledsoe’s high school shenanigans is a grassy knoll stretch.

    • Interesting, the quickness a New York Times story moved metro media in Kentucky to remind readers of Calipari’s two vacated Final Fours, Derrick Rose slickery getting into Memphis U, then Cal’s jump to Kentucky ahead of the NCAA police.

  • Which comes first? Chicken or the egg

    This is a question that many people ponder.  With the help of Kentucky Farm Bureau, Mrs. Ingram’s and Mrs. Lawson’s classes had the opportunity to learn more about this question. 

    A grant opportunity was offered by Kentucky Farm Bureau as a way to incorporate agriculture in the classroom.  With the money received from the grant, an incubator and other instructional materials were purchased to allow our students to have a hands-on learning experience with the baby chicks.
