    √ UK sued him back from Frankfort.

    √ John Calipari’s NCAA demons past, real, imagined or massaged by media conspirators (snicker), came back to bite ... the University of Memphis.

    Part of UK’s Big Blue Nation was so incensed by those with the nerve to spoil Coach Cal’s honeymoon, one was moved to recycle an old Jerry Tarkanian adage: “The NCAA is so mad at Kentucky, they’re going after Cleveland State.”

  • LETTER: Reader says don't sign wet petition

    The petition for the wet or dry vote that is portrayed by its founders to be so good for everyone is already proving to be costly. It is dividing the county, and if they get enough signatures, it’s going to cost us, the taxpayers, at least $20,000.

    The best way to stop this and save the county money we don’t have is don’t sign this petition to begin with.

  • RIGHT PATH: Helping loved ones

    “I have not seen or heard from my son in four weeks. I know he was alive a month ago because he stopped by his grandparent’s house asking for food and money. You see, my son is running from multiple warrants for drug possession. I know that he has guns, and I’m afraid he’ll kill himself or someone else–including me. I’m actually praying he will get arrested and go to prison so that he can at least realize that he has a problem.
