  • COLUMN: The games provide the best lessons on color

    Usually, they are just games. They're diversions from everyday life.

    We leave our cares at the office, then behold Joey Votto's sweet swing or Brandon Phillips' wizardry at second base. We could be mesmerized by Magic Johnson running Showtime or Larry Bird just fundamentaling his opponent into submission. We marvel at the artistry of Adrian Peterson and the precision of Tom Brady.

    But the alarm clock goes off and the sun comes up on Monday morning for us to get right back to what we had tried to escape.

  • BASEBALL: Mudcats split in World Series qualifying tourney

    If defense wins championships, it is safe to assume the lack of it will make even the best baseball teams come up short.

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats found that out over the weekend, as fielding miscues turned what could have been an incredible weekend into a so-so 2-2 finish in the USSSA World Series qualifier tournament at Western Kentucky University.

    The Mudcats committed a combined 11 errors in two losses and saw the pitching staff overworked because of miscues in one of the team's wins.

  • GOLF: Robinson named tour's Player of the Year

    To say Lee Robinson dominated the Musselman-Dunne golf tour this summer might be like saying The Masters' is a big tournament.

    It is a major understatement.

    Robinson, a rising senior at Anderson County High School, was named the tour's Player of the Year last Tuesday after winning the Kentucky Junior Golf Foundation championship tournament at Big Spring Country Club in Louisville.

    Robinson won the two-day tournament handily with a 154 (79-75) to defeat Dillon Biddle, of Paris, by seven strokes. Hunter Rowe, of Winchester, was third with a 169.

  • AUTO RACING: Brian Royalty Takes Karl Jones Memorial 100 For Corbin Speedway Late Model Series

    Brian Royalty, an Anderson County native who lives in Cynthiana, led all but one lap of the Karl Jones Memorial 100 for the Corbin Speedway Late Model Series on July 13, but that doesn’t mean that his victory came easy.

    For the first 11 laps, he had to hold off Jason Jones of London in a side-by-side battle for the lead, and that pattern was repeated after each double-file restart following four caution periods.

  • Only Christ can deliver unbiased, perfect justice

    Last week George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Protests ensued in the moments following the verdict, ranging from peaceful demonstrations to violent mobs looking to avenge the death of Trayvon Martin through the destruction of public and private property, some even attacking innocent people to show their disgust with the verdict.
