    If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’. So goes the mantra that’s been repeated in many a NASCAR garage as pit crews have tried to wrench their way to the tiniest advantage. For many, a checkered flag seems to justify a checkered image.
    But it’s not just racing where shenanagins have been used for a competitive edge in the sporting world. I’m not sure if any game is immune to those who try to cut corners, bend the rules, skirt the system, or just blatantly cheat to get ahead.

  • COLUMN: Louisville to ACC is the...

    University of Louisville’s entry to the Atlantic Coast Conference last week is, I think, the most important sports story of the new millennium in Kentuckiana.
    Among the high, if least mentioned, positives: Economic impact possibilities regionally; and, the nearest NBA franchise will remain at a distance, Indianapolis.

  • COLUMN: Remembering Tony Gwynn

    As a baseball fan in the 70s and 80s, hardly anything ever excited me about the San Diego Padres. They played mediocre baseball out on the west coast when that market was dominated by teams like the Dodgers and Athletics.

  • Winners named in fishing derby...

    The annual kids fishing derby at the Taylorsville Lake Tailwaters attracted almost 100 kids. Pictured are winners Dalton Helton, Elly Offutt and Trenton Shepard. Helton won the award for smallest fish caught, Offutt won largest fish caught, and Helton and Shepard tied for most fish caught. The Kentucky Department for Fish and Wildlife, the Kentucky Conservation Officers Association, the Spencer County Fish and Game Club and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers help sponsor the annual event.
