  • Catfish spawn brings hot fishing in reservoirs

    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    Water temperatures are climbing into the upper 70s, sending channel catfish to rocky banks in reservoirs to spawn. June is one of the most productive months to fish for them.

  • Summer is good time for learning nature's way

    By Jeff Lilly, outdoors columnist

    Remember how this past winter just seemed to keep hanging on like a dog to a bone? Well, summer and 90-degree temps have made it to the Bluegrass State. Now we get to go from wishing it would warm up a couple months ago to wishing it would cool down a little. Just remember, it’s Kentucky so hang around a day or two and the weather will change.

  • 3 regional titles make a very good year

    Today, June 25, is that day many high school coaches have had circled on their calendars since, oh, about this time last year.

    Vacation time!

    OK, it's the start of the dead period, mandated by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

    From now until July 9, high school athletic programs in the state are shut down, for all practical purposes. Athletes are off limits to coaches. Facilities are off limits to the players, for the most part, and it is just a good time for everyone to take the break for which the rule was enacted.

  • Corrections and clarifications

    Destiny Stewart's name was inadvertently omitted from a listing of Anderson County athletes who had participated in a state tournament at least three times. Stewart participated in the 2010, 2013 and 2014 girls' state basketball tournaments and was a member of the starting five the last two years. The News regrets the error.
