  • Trails Day more than horsing...

    Trail riders are not typically seen as the competitive sort.

    Just imagine horse-owners jockeying for position along a narrow, wooden path – each trying to be the first one to the end. Most view trail riding as a more leisurely, and some would even call it a passive recreational pastime.

  • An e-mail from across the years

    “Time may heal all wounds.

     But time will steal you blind.

    Time the wheel, time the conqueror.”

          - Jackson Browne,

     

    “... have you noticed lately how time flies?”

    If you nodded yes, this space is for you. And Ted.

    And for friends with whom you’ve lost touch since, say, the Muhammad Ali was Cassius Clay, or the Cuban Missile Crisis.

    Jackson Browne is right–Time does steal us blind.

    And quietly.

  • Gehrig,Sullenberger, Adam Cox,...

    While a self-centered jug head, anti-hero returned to baseball to wild cheers, a pair of genuine American heroes rose above the madding crowd last weekend.

    Lou Gehrig was honored at ball parks across America July 4, 70th anniversary of the revered Yankee's farewell speech. And, U.S. Airlines pilot Chesley Sullenberger was featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes in a fascinating piece with captain graciously fending off weak journalism from Katy Couric.

    Gehrig and Sullenberger, men of parallel grace, immense dignity and reluctance to embrace hero-worship.

  • Cyclists spin their wheels

    Cyclists began converging on Taylorsville early last Wednesday morning in preparation for the USA Cycling 2009 Masters Road National Championships individual timed trial, but were noticeably irritated to discover logistical problems that pushed start times back one, then two, hours.

    “We wanted to make sure it was safe,” said Greg Fante, director of sports development for the Louisville Sports Commission. “Any time you have a major event like this, there are going to be hurdles. If we are going to err, we are going to err on the side of caution.”

  • A look at baseball's mid-...

    The mid-summer month of July is usually one of the slowest in the world of sports. Sure, baseball is in mid-season, but with its tedious 162-game schedule, only the most ardent fans get too worked up over the games leading up to and following the All-Star game. Most excitement occurs off the field as trade-deadlines near.

    Football is still a month away, and while various training camps and involuntary workouts will soon be beginning across the NFL, the season won’t get started for several more weeks and the action is not relegated to talk radio shows.
