    A car, truck or sport utility vehicle with a couple of kayaks on the roof with fishing poles visible through the back window is an increasingly common sight on Kentucky highways.

    Sales data shows kayak fishing and related kayak accessories increasing in popularity. Some of this popularity has to do with many baby boomers reaching retirement age and wanting a new hobby.

  • Daylily farm will open to public

    Daylily World, a local farm that holds the title of winning more medals and awards than any other in the history of the Daylily Society, calls Lawrenceburg home.

  • The buck stops here in sports,...

    I wonder what Harry Truman would have thought about that press conference the University of Louisville held last week.

    You know, the one after the NCAA announced its verdict on the stripper scandal.

    For those who think anything that went on before ESPN is ancient history, Truman was the 33rd President of the United States. He approved the use of the atomic bomb to end World War II and fired Gen. Douglas McArthur in Korea.

    And whether he was praised or pounded in the press, the buck stopped with him.

  • Peach receives honor named for...

    Mark Peach is far too young to remember Blanton Collier, but he knows what kind of record the legendary coach forged at the University of Kentucky and with the Cleveland Browns.

    It was a record of excellence, highlighted five divisional title and the 1964 NFL Championship with the Browns. At Kentucky from 1954-1961, Collier posted a 41-36-3 record and was the last Wildcat coach to have a career winning slate.

    And Collier did it with class and an emphasis on sportsmanship.

  • Creating her path on the mat

    It was only her first wrestling match but there was just something different about Courtney Pittman.

    And it had little to do with the fact the she was taking the mat against boys.

    Yes, she.

    And even though she lost, she was good.

    Courtney was in the sixth grade at Anderson County Middle School when a teacher, Shannon Knight, suggested she do something almost unheard of in these parts and give the Mustang wrestling team a try.
