  • Never too late

    Age is just a number, many people will say. 
    One Joe Thomas Sr. is no exception to this cliché. At 55, he took the field for the South Carolina State Bulldogs in their game against the Savannah State Tigers on Saturday in the first quarter, and in gaining three yards on his first carry, is now believed to be the oldest college football player to see game action in a Division l football game.

  • Woods and Waters: Spend Black Friday fishing, not shopping

    Here come the holidays - and most hunting seasons are open. Between the available hunting and fishing it’s sorta hard sometimes to make up your mind on what to do!
    Being retired, I have more time to enjoy my outdoor addictions. Those who have jobs know all about the overload. By the time most work schedules are over it’s too close to dark to hunt anything. Same for fishing. You’re forced to cram in as much as possible on weekends and holidays. Of course, with a family, even those days are limited.

  • SWIMMING: Aquaknights dive into season

  • Vaught’s Views: Center Nick Richards should be a perfect fit for UK

    By Larry Vaught

    The recruitment of 6-5 Chattanooga guard Shai Alexander was like a "rocket ship movement" in the last year and he finally landed at the University of Kentucky.
    "Over the past year he has gone from somebody nobody knew with low major recruitment to a high level top 50 player in the class," said Zach Ferrell, Alexander's coach at Hamilton Heights. "His size for a point guard is awesome. He has a great work ethic and knows hows to treat teammates. He's a great person."

  • Thankful for the greatest generation

    I have been immersed in American history lately, particularly with the World War II era. I can’t tell you why, to be perfectly honest. Maybe the current political climate has inspired me to study how we got here. Perhaps I long for a different time than the one in which I live.
    Honestly, though, I think I am simply in awe of the people who came before us, paving the way for a world where we can be free.

  • A Legislative Perspective on the Kentucky General Assembly

    This week, our families and friends will sit down at the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving, the oldest of the American-based holidays.

    Nearly 400 years have passed since the most famous of these harvest feasts was held by the Pilgrims and Native Americans.  It didn’t become the holiday we recognize today, though, until President Washington and then President Lincoln helped solidify its place on the calendar, which Congress finalized in the 1940s by declaring it to always be on the fourth Thursday of November.

  • ‘Tis the season of giving

    The hustle and bustle of the winter holidays is well underway and the cool crispness of the autumn air is turning towards winter frost. Even as the weather changes and the holiday season comes upon us, we are still busy in Frankfort with interim joint committee meetings as well as planning for the 2017 session of the General Assembly.
