    Hot name in news: Amy Wambach replaced Casey Anthony this week for a cycle at least. Closer to home, Interstate-71’s nightmare on Elm Street traffic jam in Gallatin County was in the rear view mirror, and sports in Kentucky returned to normal.

    July in Kentucky.
    When haze lifts, we notice fields of corn are high as an elephant’s eye.
    Family reunions, picnics, community festivals, little league baseball all-star games and always, the troops. Ahead of all else, soldiers in uniform and civilians who serve, should be close to mind every day and certainly during the first week of July. It’s a freedom kind of month.
