  • Vaught’s Views: Retiring sports anchor has been a fixture for UK

    By Larry Vaught

    For the last 40 years Rob Bromley has covered University of Kentucky sports — along with other things — for WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington. However, he announced last week he was retiring at the end of September.
    I had been covering UK sports for about two years when Bromley started and never in 40 years have I heard him say anything bad about anyone or anyone say anything bad about one of the nicest men I’ve ever known. He’s also the most tenured television anchor on the air in Kentucky.

    A misjudged throw in the fifth and a poor showing from the bats doomed Marion County in their opening game of the Lady Cardinal Classic Saturday in Campbellsville. 
    The Lady Knights fell to the Glasgow Lady Scotties, 1-0.

  • Redemption

    Redemption is such a sweet thing. 
    North Carolina must think so. 
    Avenging a year’s worth of built-up heartbreak, the Tar Heels won the national championship last Monday night in Phoenix, defeating the Gonzaga Bulldogs 71-65 in an ugly contest that saw both teams shoot a combined 46-132 (34.8 percent) from the field and combine for 44 fouls. Both teams also shot 52 free throws in the contest, with many complaining all the free throws and fouls called disrupted the flow of play and made the game borderline unwatchable.
