  • Lady Bears take two of three, improve to 13-6

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears bounced back from an early week district loss to Shelby County, to earn two solid wins to close out the week, including a 14-9 win over Pleasure Ridge Park during the Lady Bear Invitational held on Saturday.

    Spencer County, 13-6 on the season, opened the week by traveling to district rival Shelby County on Wednesday, and it took two extra innings for the Lady Rockets to pull out the 4-3 victory.

  • UK’s Elam knows he has room to improve

    Before the Blue-White Game reached halftime, some Kentucky fans were complaining on Twitter about the play of junior nose guard Matt Elam.

    Out of shape. Too upright. Not aggressive. Gets pushed out of the way too easy. Lacks intensity.
    Elam knows the criticism is there. He picked UK over Alabama and during his first two seasons he has not met the lofty expectations most had for him. He filled in as a starter last year after Melvin Lewis was hurt, and this season Kentucky is counting on him to be the man in the middle of the defensive line.

  • Agriculture - Terminating termites

    Springtime brings warmer temperatures and more abundant rainfall, and it’s typically when many winged termites emerge inside homes and other structures. Termites swarm from their colony to disburse, fall to the ground, find mates and start new colonies in the soil.

    Through May, you might see swarms of winged termites, called swarmers, inside your home, signaling an infestation that can cause extensive and costly damage. Since swarmers are attracted to light, you often see them or their shed wings around windows, doors and light fixtures.
