Today's Sports

  • COLUMN: Sports — a newspaper’s...

    Sometimes, I push myself to write a column that has a beginning, middle and end, which I hope, without getting cocky, someone might like to read.
    That’s hard work, too. It requires dedication. It requires concentration.
    It requires getting in touch with my muse, who is not always reachable by phone.
    – San Francisco Business Times by Steve Symanovich

    Not reachable by tweet, twix or email, doesn’t work for me either.

  • COLUMN: Shaq attacks PhD.; No IU...

    “Life is painting a picture, not creating a sum (of money).”

    – Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

     

    A bit of Holmes’ wisdom sets a rhythm for a post-Derby week, right?

    First, college graduation. Photo from Lexington. Darius Miller and Eloy Vargas in cap and gown. Young men prepared to paint the next grid on life’s picture. We are especially hopeful for Miller. Man’s knack for making good impressions and good decisions and right place, right time, look promising.

  • COLUMN: Sports talk: The good,...

    The Derby’s over, and a long summer awaits. But there’s plenty of sports talk and chatter for fans. Some news is good, some is bad, but there’s always something for sports fans to discuss, argue and gripe about. I’m no different.

  • Bears lose to Whitefield in...

    Walks came back to haunt the Spencer County Bears Saturday afternoon as they dropped a 6-5 decision to visiting Whitefield Acadamy, falling to 6-11 on the season.

  • COLUMN: A ‘bucket list’ for...

    I’ve never sat down to write out a bucket list — the common term for a list of things you want to do or experience before you die — but any such list would have to include a fair amount of sporting events for me.

  • COLUMN: From ‘Run for the Roses...

    Derby Week. In name, Kentucky’s first Saturday in May is international. Run for the Roses.
    Kentucky Derby history is stirred to life in a rush of Bluegrass springtime. A pageant that comes to us in shades of green, golden rod yellows, white, black and stone fences and roses of course. Among the fixtures? Juleps, who’s who celebrities and women prancing about in immodest hats.
    Parties pop up like mushrooms, the biggest, loudest, longest socials possible, all arranged around a 6 o’clock call to the post at Churchill Downs.

  • PHOTO: Bears move to 4-9

    Spencer County junior pitcher Austin Heilman delivers a pitch during a game earlier this season for the Bears. The baseball team is currently 4-9 on the season after dropping a tough 2-1 decision at Anderson County last week, as well as a 3-2 loss to Lloyd Memorial. The Bears were to play at home Tuesday against Collins and on Thursday at 5 p.m. against Evangel Christian and noon Saturday at home against Whitefield Academy.
