    This letter is in response to the article involving Spencer County Fairgrounds property and the Kentucky Quarter Horse Association AQHA Charity Ride at Rolling Hills Campground.

  • Reasons why autumn is best Bluegrass season

    Next big thing: The Governor’s Cup.

    Kentucky and Louisville at sold-out Papa John’s Stadium on a Sunday afternoon in August. How’s that sound? Not quite right?

    College football is a Saturday thing. And rivals ought to clash when air is crisp, player helmets are scarred and covered in decals and big ole bull rush tackles are walking wounded, unshaven and in a bad mood. After Thanksgiving.

    America’s sacred college football afternoon is forever altered by television and PR departments.
