  • Louisville rides to front of the pack

    Extending a line of thought in this space last week, think Bluegrass Stakes. Last prep for Derby’s run for the roses.

    See the favorites turn for home. Thinning the pack, West Virginia bumps Pitt, leaving Jamie Dixon’s contender to drop back, wait for another day. Up on the lead UConn and Syracuse exhaust themselves on each other. Between horses and rail Florida State boxes North Carolina in behind the front runners

    Then, as Cawood Ledford used to call, “... and here they come to me now!”

  • LETTER: Time to spiff up Spencer County

    The statewide Spring cleaning week, March 21-28, gives every county the opportunity to spruce up their county for the anticipated summer visitors. We want Spencer County to look spiffy to encourage people to tell their friends and family how great Spencer County is. We have some prime areas for viewing nature here in our county. It is a shame if the view is obstructed by trash and litter.
