  • Cal’s words put him in spotlight

    American Pharoah’s hold on media headlines had gone on long enough. Having put asunder Kentucky Derby and Preakness contenders and now within mile-and-a-half of being first triple crown winner since 1978 (Affirmed), Pharoah was forced out as media darling last week when University of Kentucky issued a news release.

    Perfect, I thought, for a little pop quiz. Did the release say ...

    A. Record number of graduates will do advanced studies at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

    B. Anonymous donor writes into his will $100 million for cancer research.

  • Free fishing in state this...

     

    Free fishing weekend is one of the best avenues to introduce kids to the wonders of fishing and launch a lifelong passion. This year, Free Fishing Weekend is Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7 in Kentucky.

    “Free fishing weekend is a great tool for teaching kids how to fish,” said John Gutzeit, aquatic education coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “This is also a great time for those lapsed anglers who’ve gotten away from fishing to get fishing again and come back into the fold.”

  • Lady Bears can’t keep run going

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears, winners of their last seven games, ran out of steam at the same time as they ran into the 8th Region’s top team last Tuesday, falling to Anderson County 10-0 in the first round of the 30th District Tournament in Shelbyville.

    The Bearcats, 27-8 on the season, set the tone early on with a big four-run first inning, bolstered by a single, an error and a couple of walks that loaded the bases and lit up the scoreboard.
