  • COLUMN: Super Bowl a time to assess changes in UK football

    But, again, I never thought I would see a team playing for the Lombardi Trophy with three former Wildcats playing significant roles.

  • OUTDOORS: Trapping season a time for big prizes

    The New Year has sure started out on a cold, wintry note. The recent sub-zero temperatures are something we haven’t seen in Kentucky in years and something I don’t think we’ll ever get used to.

    I know as I get older, the cold weather just seems to reach deeper into the old gut and chill me to the bone with each passing day. Not to worry, God has a plan and spring will be here soon which of course brings with it great fishing and spring turkey season in the Bluegrass.

  • COLUMN: Lemonade from lemons?

    Rick Sallee says he believes in making lemonade out of lemons.

    Not that anyone needs a summertime beverage to cool off these days. The Polar Vortex, or whatever the weather nerds are calling that phenomenon that made Kentucky colder than Alaska last week – really, it did – has seen to that.
