    Baseball was king in Taylorsville over the weekend as the Nations Baseball tournament was held at various locations in the area, attracting 46 teams and hundreds of players, coaches and parents to the community.

    Organizer Chuck Fischer said the event went very well, although the number of teams and the limited number of fields forced on age group to play at Beechmont in Louisville.

  • Kentucky, Indiana summer series

     Josh Ferency (left) hooked this 15-pound paddlefish, also known as a spoonbill catfish, June 5, while fishing at the Taylorsville Lake tailwaters with his friends Todd Clemens and Tyler Brewer (right). The bottom-feeder was caught using chicken livers and with a little help from Clemens to reel it in. This breed is not actually a catfish, as the name suggests, but is considered one of the oldest fish species. Their greenish black eggs, like sturgeon, are used to make caviar.

  • For the love of the game

     He’s often the most hated man in the park. The one that hears the most boo’s, catches the most grief, and receives the most scorn. Moms think he’s harsh, Dads think he’s biased and coaches think he’s blind.

    Even when the temperatures approach triple digits, he’s there in full gear ready for the next game as the players from the previous contest are enjoying a cool treat at the local Dairy Queen.

    He’s the Little League umpire and despite it all, he loves his job. Why?
