    Anderson County's Jay Smith scored 6 points and had 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals for the East team in the Kentucky High School Coaches' Association Junior All-Star game Saturday at Louisville's St. Xavier High School.

  • Fundraiser tonight for teen killed in wreck

    A fundraiser is scheduled for 6 to 8 tonight to help raise funds for the family of a Lawrenceburg teenager killed early this month in a wreck.

    Cody Ramsey, who would have been a high school senior this year, worked part-time in the county park, and his co-workers, other county employees and fiscal court magistrates have already raised about $800 to help cover his final expenses.

    Tonight, Edwardo's Pizza on Glensboro Road will donate 15 percent of its sales during that time, organizers said, to help the family purchase a headstone for Ramsey.

  • OUTDOORS: Trigger weight, cleaning help accuracy of bolt action rifles

    By Art Lander Jr.
    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources
    For many firearms deer hunters in Kentucky, the tool of choice is the bolt-action centerfire rifle.
    With a little gunsmithing work and the right ammunition along with pre-season shooting practice, deer hunters will be ready to close the deal when a shooter buck walks into range this November.
    The first step is to find a competent gunsmith who can accomplish three procedures: adjusting the trigger pull, free-floating the rifle’s barrel and bedding its action.

  • Robinson-Catlett tandem wins twice at Wild Turkey Trace

    The team of Robby Robinson and Carol Catlett has been very successful in recent couples’ night golf competitions at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.
    Last week, the tandem won for the second time in recent weeks, winning a two-person, nine-hole scramble and beating Rick and Carolee Hawkins in a playoff hole.
    On June 22, the team of Robinson and Catlett took first place in the two-person scramble with Shawn and Julie Black taking second place.
    Last week, the three-person team of Mark Lilly, Colin Cox and Danny Vernon won in the men’s league play.

  • KHSAA trying to educate about head injuries

    Nearly anyone who has attended even a few football games has experienced that scary moment when two players collide full speed and one does not get up or, at best, gets up slowly and groggily.
    For years, fans and media passed it off as just a temporary problem with no long-term effects.
    While a knee or shoulder injury causes visible problems, a head injury or concussion was simply passed over.
    Research over the years has identified the dangers of concussions in many sports, prompting the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to act.

  • Football head injury scrutiny has increased over time

    Football has come a long way since the days of playing with no helmet.
    Next came the leather headgear, followed by molded plastic helmets with no facemask. Helmets with no internal padding – only a web of straps kept the helmet away from the head – finally gave way to padding, air suspension and the high-tech equipment worn today.

  • Head injuries no longer ‘getting bell rung’

    Mark Peach remembers the day he got a concussion playing football.
    At least he thinks it probably was one.
    One day, while playing offensive tackle for Campbellsville University about 20 years ago, Peach was a bit woozy after taking a hit.
    But there was no blood. No broken bones.
    At the time, it was considered a minor thing. He’d “gotten his bell rung.”
    “I remember one of the coaches was over on the sidelines and told me just to walk it off,” Peach says. “I went back in that game.”
