  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: No excuses for disappointing end

    It was only natural for Anderson County girls' basketball players to play the “What if?” game at last week's state tournament in Bowling Green.

    After all, the Lady Bearcats defeated Lincoln County, a team that made the Final Four. They also defeated Montgomery County, which advanced to the quarterfinals.

    “We had a lot of successes this year,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said Monday. “It is natural to compare teams and say, 'We beat this one' or 'We could play with that one.'”

  • COLUMN: Kentucky is human, but will hang banner No. 8

    Well now. Looks like Kentucky is human after all.

    But really, did it really change anything when the Wildcats lost to Vanderbilt?

    I don't think for a minute that UK needed to lose one, nor do I think John Calipari let them lose one. But what he said before the SEC Tournament is right: What happened in New Orleans really didn't matter.

  • Blessed are the peacemakers for God

    Back in the day, there were “men’s meetings.”
    These took place before the regular business meeting, often a couple of hours earlier. Not that the women didn’t have a voice in the business meeting, however; the lion’s share of the decisions were made in these “men’s meetings.”
    Such was one of these. Again, as a young minister, it was an eye opening experience. It all began with the normal task of filling the pulpit on an upcoming Sunday, while our pastor was going to be away in revival services.
