    The wild striped bass in a ginger and red wine sauce at a restaurant in New York City runs $135 before gratuity. At a Japanese restaurant in the same city, a dinner of sushi costs nearly $600 per person.These are some of the highest rated and expensive restaurants in the country, but we in Kentucky have a world class fish dish that is likely as delicious as those from a highbrow restaurant that is practically free by comparison.

Nobody was happy, in particular citizenry of Big Blue Nation who pay their taxes in love, devotion in tee-shirts, face paint and expect in return more than they were getting.

    The Bears opened with a solid game despite the 3-2 loss against Southern on Monday. In that game, Jaret Cannon was the starting pitcher on the mound and gave up just three hits through six innings. However, Southern got five hits in the late innings and escaped with the one-run victory while holding the Bears to just four hits on the day.
