  • Not all sports are must-see

    I didn’t watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr. – Manny Pacquiao fight, but from what I’ve read, seen on Facebook and heard from others, it apparently failed to live up to its billing as a boxing match.

    I’m certainly no boxing aficionado, but many who tune into the matches do so out of a desire to see a pummeling.

  • Former Bears excel at track meet

     

    Some former Spencer County High School Bears are setting an impressive pace for the University of the Cumberlands track team.

    The Patriots performed well at the Mid-South Conference Championships over the weekend, with the UC women’s team winning the championship, and the men’s team coming in second behind Lindsey Wilson College.

  • Watching our sports heroes age

    You don’t realize how old you’re getting until you realize how old your heroes have gotten.

  • Spring training for youth...

     

    Sunday’s bright weather made a perfect day for aspiring football players and cheerleaders to take advantage of camps put on by the Spencer County Youth Football Association.

  • College athletes paid well

    I’ve never been a fan of phony victims. When those whose lot in life is tremendously more fortunate than most of their peers, still find reason to wallow in self pity, I tend to just look away in disgust.
    That’s my reaction to major college athletes who complain that they should be paid for the privilege of playing in sold-out stadiums and arenas and in front of nationally-televised audiences.

  • Turkey season is open

    The wait is over for turkey hunters in Kentucky.
    A calendar shift pushed the state’s 23-day general spring wild turkey season back this year to the third weekend in April. It opened this past Saturday, April 18 and runs through May 10.
    Last spring, hunters in Kentucky reported taking 29,943 turkeys.

  • Lauren Hill lived and died a hero

    The phrase “one and done” has echoed across the college basketball landscape a lot in recent years, especially in Kentucky. It refers to players who come to a school, spend one good year on the court, and then leave to the professional ranks. Whether or not that’s good for the game is best saved for another discussion.
    However, there was a college basketball player about a hundred miles north of here who gave new meaning to “one and done.”
