  • Watching our sports heroes age

    You don’t realize how old you’re getting until you realize how old your heroes have gotten.

  • Spring training for youth...


    Sunday’s bright weather made a perfect day for aspiring football players and cheerleaders to take advantage of camps put on by the Spencer County Youth Football Association.

  • A Signature save...


  • College athletes paid well

    I’ve never been a fan of phony victims. When those whose lot in life is tremendously more fortunate than most of their peers, still find reason to wallow in self pity, I tend to just look away in disgust.
    That’s my reaction to major college athletes who complain that they should be paid for the privilege of playing in sold-out stadiums and arenas and in front of nationally-televised audiences.

  • Turkey season is open

    The wait is over for turkey hunters in Kentucky.
    A calendar shift pushed the state’s 23-day general spring wild turkey season back this year to the third weekend in April. It opened this past Saturday, April 18 and runs through May 10.
    Last spring, hunters in Kentucky reported taking 29,943 turkeys.

  • Lauren Hill lived and died a hero

    The phrase “one and done” has echoed across the college basketball landscape a lot in recent years, especially in Kentucky. It refers to players who come to a school, spend one good year on the court, and then leave to the professional ranks. Whether or not that’s good for the game is best saved for another discussion.
    However, there was a college basketball player about a hundred miles north of here who gave new meaning to “one and done.”

  • Up and running at Waterford...


    Signs of life returned to Waterford Park Friday night and Saturday morning after major flooding had caused the park to close for several days. Pictured are members of the Spencer County Soccer Asscociation’s U6 Development Program playing a Saturday morning game. Weather has prevented the U6 players from practicing much, but the SCSA is moving on with its season despite the uncooperative conditions. A lot of work by volunteers made play possible.
