  • Calipari: Next UK coach

    April in Kentucky. Might as well be 48 hours before the Derby.  Every fan has a pick for Run for the Roses. In this case, next basketball coach at Kentucky.

    In lieu of a John Calipari hiring, which would confirm to some of us that Mitch Barnhart doesn’t get it either, I have a list too.

    Ironically the best man for the job at this point in UK hoops history, won’t get it or likely won’t take it. Billy Donovan will stay at Florida, Tom Izzo is a coaching rarity, a loyalist to Michigan State, and Bob Knight is 69 years old.

  • Time to play ball

    The Spencer County Lady Bears dropped an 8-2 decision to South Oldham Monday in the season opener.

    South Oldham broke a scoreless tie in the top of the fourth when they loaded the bases with none out. Kenisha Marshall, playing first base for the Lady Bears, caught a fly ball for the first out, but then a Lady Dragon liner to centerfield brought home the runner from third. Spencer County was able to escape the inning without any more harm, but trailed 1-0.

  • FROM THE WORD: Becoming a new creature

    John 3:1-7 – There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

  • LETTER: Gracie, one of God’s creatures

    She laid downcast and huddled in a small kennel at an animal supply store. One mat, one bowl, no attention from the customers. Her eyes no longer held the shine of a beloved pet, her body language gave no sign of hope. She was alone…forgotten. Her frail, abused, and severely malnourished body did not attract any potential new owner. Her abuser did a good job of breaking her spirit.

  • LETTER: Response to “Floodwall failure” story
  • BELIEVE IN HIM: Are you religious?

    “There are so many religions, can I know which one is correct?”  “Is Allah and God the same?”  “Don’t all religions lead to the same place?”  “Can I be a Buddhist and a Christian?”

  • Heart Gallery photos shows need for adoption in Kentucky

    It does not take a magic ring or being from another planet to be a hero.  It does not take a mind-blowing, mystical experience to be a saint.  All it really takes is love, compassion and a commitment to a child’s future.

    Adoptive parents Michael and Tracy Crossfield may not consider themselves heroes to their two adopted boys Tallas, 7, and Samuel, 6, – but they know their lives are blessed. 

  • LETTER: Thanks for helping Dare to Care

    Those involved with First Baptist Church of Taylorsville’s Dare to Care ministry would like to extend a special thanks to Country Mart, Faulkner Meats, Painters Local #118 of Louisville and the Taylorsville Masonic Lodge #210 for their donations.

    These efforts would not be possible without great community support.
