  • 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.”

    The Reds won the Spencer County Youth Baseball 8U championship Saturday with a 10-5 win over the Cubs.

  • Standout QB first of UK’s 2018...

    Just a few hours after he announced his commitment to Kentucky, Georgia junior quarterback Jarren Williams was on the phone talking to potential future teammates.

    “When he walks into a room, he lights up the whole room,” said Anthony Williams, the quarterback’s father. “He makes everybody feel important. He is a leader. He knows how to get guys to do things they need to do in order to win. He takes an interest in them and  makes them all feel important.”

    Millions of motorists soon will take to the nation’s roadways with plans of spending the extended Fourth of July holiday weekend boating on a lake or river.

  • Special Olympians earn Gold


  • UK freshman adjusting to...

    Linebacker Kash Daniel knew playing football at Kentucky and in the Southeastern Conference would be a big adjustment. What the former Paintsville High School star did not know was just how big it would be.

    “It has been challenging mentally every day to prepare yourself to go work and do everything you have to do 100 miles per hour no matter what kind of drill it is. It can be a walk through, a lift session. You better bust your tail or you will be an outcast and people will see that very clearly. Just the pace of the game is so different,” said Daniel.

  • Three good stream floats for...

    Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.

    Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.
