    The cooler temperatures and lower humidity that spread across Kentucky last week made it feel more like early fall than the dog days of summer.

    Fall hunting season seems closer with a crispness in the air in mid-July. And in reality, it isn’t far off. Early fall squirrel season in Kentucky opens in less than a month.

  • Fishing options for the dog days

    The dog days of summer settled over Kentucky in the last week, bringing the hottest temperatures of the year. The summer heat in July and August make fishing reservoirs a tough prospect.

    Even bluegill get grumpy in the larger lakes at this time of year, much less largemouth bass.

  • Getting smaller, living bigger

    Jason Sprinkles knew something was wrong. Very wrong.

    He'd been hunting with his father in Nicholas County, but was having trouble walking up a hill. His chest was hurting.

    A few days later, a doctor did not mince words. A former shortstop and catcher for the powerful baseball program at Harrison County High School was checking in at 400 pounds on his 5-foot-5-inch frame.

    Sprinkles, who now lives in Anderson County, was borderline diabetic and had just recorded an abnormal EKG. A Lexington cardiologist ordered a heart catheterization.

  • Richie, Steele win 4-H shooting sports event

    Ben Richie and Ethan Steele both took first place in their divisions as the Anderson County 4-H shooting sports team competed in the District 7 competition on July 12. The meet was held at the Miller Welch-Central Kentucky Wildlife Management Area near Richmond.

    The team competed in trap (shotgun) and archery events.

    Richie took first place in the 15- to 18-year-old trap 100 bird event with a score of 99 out of a possible 100. Richie also received the award for high score overall.

  • Older Mudcats end season

    Rains washed out the championship day of their annual tournament, but a so-so performance was really what put a damper on the final weekend of the 17-and-under Central Kentucky Mudcats' baseball team.

    The local traveling team had scheduled its annual wooden bat tournament for Anderson County High School's Barnes Memorial Field, but the weekend downpours washed out Sunday's games. “We got three games in Saturday, and we played one,” Mudcat coach Chris Copenhaver said.

  • Safety Day at General Cable

    General Cable hosted its annual Safety Day event on July 7 at the company’s Lawrenceburg facility. Over 250 people attended the event.

    General Cable, headquartered in Highland Heights, Kentucky, is one of the largest wire and cable manufacturers in the world. The company develops, designs, manufactures markets and distributes aluminum, copper and fiber optic wire and cable products for various industries, according to a news release.

  • Cohabitation may be convenient, but robs couple of marriage benefits

    I remember the conversation like it was yesterday. I was walking behind two women who were making their way from the fellowship hall of our church to the sanctuary for worship. One of these women, in her mid-twenties, was talking about how she and her boyfriend had recently moved in together.

    This comment brought a rebuke from the other, much older, woman who chided, “Now you know better than that.” The younger woman retorted, “Well, times have changed!” “Perhaps,” said the older saint, “but the Bible hasn’t.”
