    “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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
