  • COLUMN: UK football clanks in time for Calipari and Pitino spin debut

    The clanking sound UK fans are hearing at the tailgate isn’t a Halloween goblin dragging a chain, its a trap door swinging open on your bowl bid hoops, uh hopes, and the doors swinging open to a stampede at Rupp Arena.

    UK football players still don’t understand climbing the SEC ladder demands touchdown passes caught, kick coverage done right, and realizing what makes yellow flags fly.

    Reality. At Kentucky in mid-October when leaves turn golden, the football team had better have four wins before the ball turns round.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Alcohol a polarizing issue

    Six months have passed since the first person put pen to paper and signed a petition to legalize the sale of alcohol in Spencer County.

  • LETTER: Children and alcohol

    I was shocked a week ago when I was entering and exiting a store in Taylorsville to see children and teenagers loitering and loudly shouting profanity in public to a driver that stopped his car to speak with them in the shopping center.  This situation was unusual for our county.  Those types of incidents could escalate.  One adds alcohol or illegal drugs on top of that encounter and the end result would not be pleasant.
