  • Each generation has its favorite...

    As I write this the UK-Kansas bout for the 2012 National Championship is still hours away from tip-off. The general feeling around the Bluegrass State is, and has been for the past several months, that banner number eight will be hanging in Rupp Arena after the final buzzer sounds tonight. (Editor’s note: The Wildcats defeated Kansas Monday night to bring home their eighth national championship.)

  • PHOTO: A sunny day on the courts

    The Spencer County High School girls’ tennis team was in action last week and enjoyed a sunny day on the courts. Pictured above are the doubles team of Heidi Brooks, front, and Madison Caudill.

  • COLUMN: Kentucky rises to...

    Voila! There it was Saturday evening — the cosmic hue over the Bluegrass State reverted to blue again. Rick Pitino had congratulated John Calipari and would say later how much he liked Kentucky’s team.
    Louisville’s coach spoke for most of us. His orange-clad team was pretty good, too, and should open next season near the top, if not the top, of the polls.
    Kentucky fans were aglow, having witnessed a school record 37 wins already, pushing its all-time wins lead over North Carolina to 24.

    Operating in borrowed office space behind a desk relocated from the basement of his own home, Rick Whobrey began work as executive director of the new Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

    A recent survey conducted at eight Fishing in Neighborhoods (FINs) lakes across Kentucky found the program both popular and helpful in recruiting new anglers.

    Contemporaries, both residing in the same state just a short drive one from another, yet locked in a conflict that will have national implications. The animosity between the two has raged for years and it’s about to reach a boiling point.

  • Bears, Lady Bears both sit at 2-1

    The Spencer County Lady Bears are off to a 2-1 start to their season after a successful first week.

  • COLUMN: A Final Four for the ages

    The air around college basketball buzzes heavy with Wildcat swoon and Louisville “who knew!” this week.
    Louisville earned its party crasher role by bravery, certainly, but bravado, too. Final Four has its Cinderella and we have a Bluegrass State celebration.
    The Final Four as marketplace?
    If the word great could be sold by a street vendor instead of thrown around like Digger Phelps’ predictions, you could still buy one for 12 cents.
