  • Patterson forging long career

    When Patrick Patterson joined the Toronto Raptors two years ago, his mother admits she did not know coach Dwane Casey was a former Kentucky player or assistant coach.

    “I just did not know that at all,” said Tywanna Patterson. “But I love Dwane Casey. He lets young men play their game. The NBA is a little different from college. In college, whatever the coach says goes. In the NBA, there is more leeway and if a player has an idea for setting up a play or something, the coaches listen.

  • Top water lures effective for...

    An old saying among bass anglers declares they would rather catch one bass on a top-water lure than 10 on anything else.

    The shake-inducing strike of a huge black bass savaging a top-water lure at dawn is as addictive as free donuts in the break room at work. Once bitten by the top-water bug, it becomes part of your fishing arsenal for life.

    Daytime bass fishing grows increasingly tough in the heat of July and August. Fishing a top-water lure during the edges of the day draws vicious strikes.

  • Youth sports to help local parks


  • Walk-on proving his worth for UK...


    During a talk to the Louisville Quarterback Club, then offensive coordinator Neal Brown told the group that one of the most talented players in Kentucky’s 2014 recruiting class was Charles Walker of Louisville’s St. Xavier.

  • Cardinals claim crown

  • Proper fish handling for summer...

    Summer is arguably the most popular time to fish as muggy, hot days push people to the water for relief and relaxation.

    Many anglers, especially those who seek game fish such as black bass, trout or striped bass, release their catch.

    “Catch and release works and is a good thing,” said Dave Dreves, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “But, if you don’t handle the fish properly, your good intentions can be reversed.”
