  • Safety critical in ice fishing

    Below freezing nights last week brought thoughts of ice fishing — something that is rare in Central Kentucky.

    Every couple of years, there is enough cold weather in January or early February for an ice fishing trip or two, but it doesn’t happen often. But when conditions are right for safe ice, fishing can be fun and productive.

    In this area, we are fortunate if there are three or four good ice fishing days a year. Some years there are none, and the current long-range forecast doesn’t look promising

  • An old friend sadly fades into...

    Yesterday, the newspaper of my youth shuttered its doors after 126 years.

    It’s the same paper where I learned how to read box scores and track the baseball and football standings. The same paper where I read stories about the exploits of greats such as Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan and other legends.

  • Woodson has stamped his place in...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - While doing a little research for this column, I stumbled upon a story I did on Andre Woodson prior to his senior season at North Hardin High School.

    “I’ll never get this much publicity ever again,” Woodson said in that interview about all the attention he was receiving during the recruiting process.

  • Tigers drop games but improve

    Bardstown suffered its first losses of the season in last week’s Best Of The Best Kentucky Hoops Classic at Franklin-Simpson.

    But while the Tigers are a bit more roughed-up from their visit down near the Tennessee border, Bardstown coach Gary Goode said his team is better for the experience.

    “I think we got a lot out of this tournament,” he said. “There were some good teams down there — we played pretty good in a couple of losses.”

    The Tigers stand at 8-3 overall, despite the 1-3 showing at Franklin.

  • Cecil notches triple-double

    LOUISVILLE - Beka Cecil got a triple-double the hard way Friday, blocking 12 shots to go with her 14 points and 10 rebounds in leading Bethlehem past Mayfield, 42-32, in the Lady Dragon Holiday Classic at Doss.

    The 6-2 lefty was key in a strong defensive effort by the Banshees (3-4) as they held the Cardinals without a field goal until the second quarter. Mayfield (3-7) managed only one point in the first quarter and 10 in the first half.

  • New Year time to contemplate...

    As one year ends and another starts, it is a time for reflection and a time for contemplating the next 12 months. Most everyone does it, if only for a fleeting moment.

    For those who love the outdoors, when we look back we can see some of the harmful things man has done to the outdoors, the environment. Habitat for rabbits, quail and grouse has been eliminated in much of the Midwest.

  • Cards split pair in NC Classic

    Nelson County used a big first quarter and a strong finish to put away Spencer County 58-42 in the first round of pool play Thursday in the Nelson County Cardinal Classic.

    It looked like the Cards would win in a walk early on as they sprinted out to an 18-4 lead after the first quarter.

    “It was a game of runs — really emotional,” Nelson County senior Eric Thompson said.
