  • Queens of the Bluegrass

    The Lady Bears are off to a good start on the softball diamond and have posted a 5-1 record early in the season. Following a 1-0 loss to CAL last Tuesday, the girls have strung together four straight victories, which included a 9-1 win over Nelson County, a 7-1 win over Henry County and 8-1 over Southern and a 20-0 romp over Fairdale. They are scheduled to meet Fairdale again at home today and will be at Bullitt Central on Thursday. They’ll participate in an Oldham County tournament over spring break.

Odds are, those brackets were filled out after tossing some darts or by an old lady in North Dakota who was bored with her daily crossword puzzle.

  • A fish out of water

    Snagging a huge fish would seem exciting for most fishermen, but the 60-pound bighead carp that local youngster Brian Raisor recently caught in Taylorsville Lake’s tail waters raised some eyebrows with Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists.

    Notes and quotes from the fast break lane in a dream season.
    Beyond bracketologists, pep bands and painted faces, the deep beauty of the NCAA basketball tournament is its suspense. We know shockers and surprises are coming, but who, when and where is the fun part.
    Last week, Morehead State supplied the shocker sending home Final Four-ambitious Louisville. A punch in the gut for the Cardinals, but a basketball moment for the ages for Rowan County’s other team.
