  • Seniors still have empty feeling

    I took over the sports department at The Kentucky Standard in June 2007. This year’s seniors were that year’s freshmen, so in some respects, I’ve sort of grown up with them as I’ve gotten to know them.

    With 11 seniors on the current Bethlehem football squad, many of them four-year starters, I’ve seen many of their highs and lows. When I cover their games or go visit their practices to do interviews, or even just see them out in public in general, it’s usually a lot of fun and joking around.

  • Zenyatta goes for history Saturday

    The Breeders’ Cup returns to Churchill Downs this weekend, giving racing fans a chance to watch and wager on the best horses in the world.

    But what everyone really wants to see — and for once I will run with the crowd — is if Zenyatta can retire undefeated with a repeat win against the boys in the BC Classic.
