  • COLUMN: Stoops is next coach at...

    Mark Stoops is Kentucky’s new football coach.
    For times Big Blue Nation citizens live in, it is a reasonably good hire.
    Stoops The Younger (of four brother college coaches) defines himself.
    “I’m a meat and potatoes kind of guy.”
    Sounds good, smells good. Because Kentucky is a meat-and-spuds kind of Commonwealth, as long as the menu includes soup beans and corn bread with an occasional dash of Cracker Barrel, and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

  • Lady Bears, new coach open...

    A new era for the Lady Bears started off on a positive note Monday night as new coach David Marion picked up a win in his debut as Spencer County dispatched of Shawnee 57-23 at home.

  • Bears defeat Louisville Shawnee...

    If Spencer County senior center Chris Dunbar was rusty from having missed a year of basketball, he shook it off in the half-time locker room. He scored 24 of his game-high 28 points in the second half to help pace the Bears to a 83-55 season-opening win over Louisville Shawnee Monday night in Taylorsville.

  • COLUMN: Gaffe or gumption?

    One of the Unforgettables, Sean Woods’ tantrum-laced visit to Rupp Arena last week was, well, forgettable. Maybe.
    A question lingers. Was Woods’ open mouth policy in Lexington gaffe or gumption? Says here the Devon Atkinson episode was gaffe. All else from Woods was gumption, and guts to speak his mind.

  • COLUMN: Reasons to be thankful

    As the passing show slows for Thanksgiving, there are people who parade through our lives whom I am immensely thankful.
    1. Joe ‘Joker’ Phillips came this way. Three seasons into a five-year deal, he’s out. Some will forget that Kentucky fans abandoned him. Some of us won’t.

  • Basketball teams to open season...


  • Wolfpack wins State Soccer Cup

    The SCSA was well represented by three teams this season in the State Cup. The Galaxy defeated CCS 2-0 and lost to Vine Grove 0-3 in the semi-finals. The Galaxy, a young U14 mixed team, had a great season under coach Brad Gunter and will perform even better next season as they gain experience.

  • Polson — 10 points better...

    A sparkle in college basketball shines through the money now-and-then.
    How perfect that freshman-hyped Kentucky would stagger through a season opener and be saved at the end by Opie Taylor?
    Jarrod Polson, kid from the heartland who Rupp Arena fans have urged to shooooooooooooooot! every time he showed up the last two seasons, showed up last week.
