  • COLUMN: Rhodes unlikely arrival...

    Cordia High School and new basketball coach Rodrick Rhodes, congratulations and may the force be with you.
    From the clanking mean streets of Jersey City to the relatively rural serenity of Lotts Creek Road in Knott County, a romantic Kentucky kind of tale. It has Norman Dale-and-Hickory possibilities.
    Cordia is Hickory, Lions are Huskers. A sequel to Angelo Pizzo’s Hoosiers. I like it.

  • Watch out for fawns, turkeys...

    Everything is “growing like a weed,” as the old saying goes, because of heavy rainfall in April and early May followed by unseasonably high temperatures in early June.

  • COLUMN: Travathan, Hines get eye...

    Refreshing. At the opposite end of the show-me-the-money scale for one-and-doners, find Danny Travathan and Stuart Hines. The UK football stars spent a week in Ethiopia recently visiting villages, helping distribute food, spending time with children and giving away a ball or two.
    Think, giving a poor kid a new football – magical.
    Travathan said in a release, this trip was an eye opener, a reality check. (These) People have so little and are so happy for what they get. They appreciate things we take for granted like water.

  • COLUMN: Will the new NBA entry...

    As summer’s wool blanket settles onto Kentucky from asphalt to tobacco base – some call it HHH, we look across the sports landscape and see ...
    1. Could be big impact news for fans in Kentucky. In negotiations for a new contract, the NBA Players Union is reportedly agreeable to adjusting the age limit for entry from 19 to 18 again. High school graduates could go straight to the NBA draft ... OR commit to play college basketball for more than one year. Number on the table is two.

  • Fun in the mud

    Evan McKinney of Taylorsville takes his turn during Saturday’s mud bog in Lawrenceburg to benefit the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office’s Shop With a Cop program as well as the Kentucky Sheriff’s Association’s Boys and Girls Camp. Another Taylorsville resident, David Stevens, won the event’s 44-inch tire class in his truck named Bow Tie Bogger.
     

  • Little League game a thriller

    On Saturday, the undefeated Hot Rods played the Reds at Ray Jewell park.

    Wyatt DeRudder, son of Coach Trent Derudder, then hit an infield home run to win the game for the Hot Rods.
    The final score was 13 to 12.

  • Free fishing weekend starts...

    Families can rediscover the joy of fishing this weekend, June 4-5.
    Moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles or any adult can fish for free this weekend throughout Kentucky. Kids under the age of 16 can fish without a license anyway, so free fishing weekend offers a good opportunity for entire families to enjoy the late spring sunshine with a picnic and a day of wholesome fun.
    Free fishing applies to friends and relatives visiting Kentucky from out of state as well. Size and creel limits on the number of fish that angles may keep still apply, however.
