  • COLUMN: Memorial Day brought...

    Memorial Day.
    Tribute then, albeit belated, to veterans who served or are serving our country.
    A special salute today to heroes. For me, two of them.
    • Green County native Sgt. Dakota Meyer, America’s newest Congressional Medal of Honor winner. What valor. (See 60 Minutes, May 27).
    • And, a man you’ve never heard of, but Anthony’s first name will do. He remains for me a symbol – a model for crisp sense of duty, clarity of purpose, unflappable confidence.

  • COLUMN: Student-athletes deserve...

    Remember that little phrase we often hear, then snicker?
    Student-athlete.
    When you hear someone representing a major college or the NCAA using that term, you had better be sure to notice that emphasis on the “student” half of the equation and forget that those student-athletes play weeknight games at 9:30 and are flown across the country, regardless of location, all for a good matchup in March Madness.
    And, heaven forbid if you ever call out the hypocrisy and call those guys participating in sports at the highest level “players.”

  • COLUMN: Celebrating moments from...

    “Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments,” Rose Kennedy said.
    Which leaves us to ask, which is which? I suggest milestones are for quiet reflection, moments are replay-worthy now-and-then.
    This week, a bit of self indulgence in moments. Forty years worth.
    You may turn the page now, or not.

  • Spring practice wraps up with...

    Football season is still months away, but the Spencer County Bears gave fans a preview of the 2012 season with an intrasquad scrimmage Friday night at the high school. Wrapping up their spring practice season, coach Mike Marksbury’s squad took to the field and showed some flashes of promise.

  • COLUMN: Moms make the sports...

    Last week, cards were mailed, flowers were sent and families traveled as Americans paused to celebrate and honor mom. She’s a deserving woman who helps make our house a home with love and hard work. If anyone deserves a special day, it’s mom.
