  • All-Stars shine this weekend
  • Kenny Perry is Kentucky's...

    When Kenny Perry came huffing and puffing to the 18th green at the 34th Seniors Open Golf Tournament Sunday in Omaha, we had to smile. An age thing.
    Here’s our guy again. Two weeks removed from winning his first Senior Players Championship in Pittsburgh, Perry had wobbled the first two days in Omaha then charged to the front and led by five as he came up the hill to enjoy TV face-time, applause and whistles reserved for a winner on a Sunday evening ahead of 60 Minutes.

    Imagine the stir it would cause if Alabama head football coach Nick Saban waltzed into Taylorsville one day to observe a middle school football practice.
    With the way football recruiting is going these days, that may not be out of the realm of possibility if Taylorsville were to someday produce any abnormally athletic seventh-graders.

  • Fish offshore for post-spawn...

    The wet and unseasonably cool weather pattern lately seems more consistent with Derby week than early July.
    Chris Hickey, black bass research biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, said the cool weather delayed the largemouth bass spawn a couple of weeks, but now everything is on schedule as we head into the heat of summer.
    He said anglers report largemouth bass gathering on the channel ledges on Kentucky and Barkley lakes.

  • COLUMN: ‘Planet Hoops’ had a...

    Planet College Hoops had a hiccup last week, then shifted back to business as usual.
    Hiccup? We would have been less shocked if Vladimir Putin had handed Edward Snowden over to Jesse Jackson than seeing Danny Ainge introduce Brad Stevens as the Boston Celtics new coach.
    Say it ain’t so? From middle America, Jimmy Stewart goes to Beantown?
    NCAA basketball had lost its best cover guy since Denny Crum was Cool Hand Luke in the ‘80s.

  • Early summer is a good time to...

    Kentucky’s 136-day archery deer season opens in late summer, this year 15 days before the first day of fall. The season dates are Sept. 7, 2013 through Jan. 20, 2014.
    The signs are everywhere across rural Kentucky that deer season is not that far off: mast is beginning to grow on trees in the woods, fields are lush with clover and tall grass. Deer fawns are becoming more visible and bucks are growing back their antlers with renewed vigor. When deer season opens, deer will still be in their summer pattern and highly visible while feeding late in the day in fields.
