  • DNA used to solve deer poaching...

    Using DNA as a way to identify individuals is not restricted to the investigation of crimes against humans.

  • COLUMN: Thankful for family,...

    As we sit down later this week to feast on turkey and football, let us also take time to give thanks. On a serious note, the things for which we are thankful should include our families and our freedoms. But since this is a sports column, here are some things I’m thankful for this year:

  • Blue/white scrimmage

    High school basketball season tips off in Kentucky next week and Spencer County fans got a glimpse of their teams last Wednesday during the annual Blue-White night at the high school.

  • COLUMN: Thanksgiving week in...

    Over the bridge and through the woods,
    let us dawdle a bit and savor the good.

    Over the bridge and through the woods,
    Recall aroma and voices of good old times.
    Hear again the sing-song twang of Gra’ma’s rhymes.

    Over the bridge and on to our Home Place,
    Thanksgiving in America, I love this place!

    This week, events and people in sports for which I am grateful, along with relief to know I don’t depend on poetry for a living.
