Never, never be afraid to do what’s right,
especially if well-being of a person or animal is at stake.
Society’s punishments are small compared to wounds we inflict
on our soul when we look the other way.
– Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. King’s words resonate still. And, all the way to my profession.
Kentucky hunters took 20 bears during the 2013 bear season that concluded this past December. This season introduced an expanded bear hunting zone as well as an archery and crossbow season.
Both the firearm and archery/crossbow bear seasons received a 10-bear quota for the 2013 seasons for a total of 20 bears. Hunters can now hunt bears in 16 Kentucky counties, up from four counties in 2012.
Bobby Petrino seemed truly grateful for a second chance last week as he was introduced, again, as the head football coach for the University of Louisville Cardinals. He should be.
The man who left Louisville for the NFL with little warning and in a manner that rankled most Cardinal fans, stood before a crowded press conference as a humbled man who now speaks as though Louisville will be his final destination. If so, the trip he took getting here couldn’t have been more bumpy.

After a long holiday stretch of road games and tournaments, the Spencer County Bears returned home for two games over the weekend. While they suffered two losses, the first game offered a glimpse of promise as the Bears went toe-to-toe against a quality team in Thomas Nelson.
The Spencer County Lady Bears had hoped to find the win column Friday night when they squared up against Thomas Nelson, but turnovers, poor rebounding and the inability to cash in on free throws doomed the girls as they fell, 54-46.
