  • GOLF: Vet Rizer in search of another State Am title
    If Joan Rizer is going to add a sixth Kentucky Women’s State Amateur title to her trophy case, the Bardstown native will have to run a gauntlet of the top young golfers in the state. Rizer, the St. Catharine College head golf coach, who carries the banner for My Old Kentucky Home Golf Club, shot a 4-over par 36-40—76 during qualifying play Monday at Elizabethtown Country Club to earn her way into the 32-player championship bracket. Rizer and four others shot a 76 Monday, ninth-best among all golfers.

  • Stepping out into the world
    When Jordan Brewer and Anthony Myrks look up into the stands or over at the bench during their basketball games this coming winter, it’ll be a whole new feeling for the recent Bardstown High School grads. No longer will their father, Tiger head coach James “Boo” Brewer, be on the sidelines barking out instructions to them, and no longer will mother Debbie Brewer and other family members be there in the bleachers cheering them on.
  • GOLF ROUNDUP: Maywood hosts Jr. PGA qualifier
    Bardstown served as the state’s hot spot for youth golf this week, with Woodlawn Springs playing host to a regular stop on the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour on Tuesday, then Maywood welcoming players in for the two-day Kentucky Junior PGA qualifying event. Winners earned a berth in the U.S. Junior PGA tournament, played in July in Fort Wayne, Ind.
  • RINGSIDE SEAT: Judge Ford explains his decision on Pacquiao-Bradley
    Duane Ford, a boxing judge with more than 30 years in the business, explained to HBO’s Jim Lampley during his show “The Fight Game” how and why he scored the way he did on June 9. What Ford said was disturbing and shows exactly why he needs to step away from the game. Ford, who scored the contest 115-113 for Bradley, led off his remarks by saying that Pacquiao “clearly won the first six rounds.” By that logic alone, this fight should have been, at worst, a 114-114 draw for Pacquiao in a 12-round championship fight.
  • OUTDOOR TALES: Trees under bug attack
    An old green lawn chair sits at the end of my lot on the bank of the lake. It is located beneath a couple of poplar trees.  I often slip down to the chair with a container of worms and try my luck for bluegill. Sometimes my grandkids accompany me. The gills usually cooperate. Several times when I had been in the area late in the afternoon, I noticed the grass looked like it was wet. But with the hot dry weather that didn’t seem possible, but I didn’t give it much thought.

  • COMMUNITY SPORTS: Legion baseball hoping to make a return
    In Nelson County, summer baseball options can be slim for local high-school aged kids. A few travel teams crop up every so often, but most kids whose first choice is baseball end up finding themselves involved with teams based elsewhere, such as Louisville or Lexington. That won’t be the case next year, however, if some local folks have their way and are able to offer an old-school option: American Legion baseball.
  • YOUTH SOCCER: Asteria squad keeps building after second trip to finals
    The Nelson County Elite Asteria U12 girls select soccer club keeps climbing the ladder. The squad got to the finals of the state Eurosport Challenge cup last year as a U11 squad, and returned this season as the tournament’s top overall seed, making a repeat trip to the finals. That trip ended in heartbreak, however, as Asteria fell 3-2 to LFC Premier in overtime on a golden goal.
