  • Playoff push is on

    Well, the Lady Knights capped off another undefeated district run this year.  Not surprising, since they haven't lost a district game in 1,843 days counting today. The last loss was to Adair County at home on Jan. 23, 2007 in a 64-59 overtime loss. This also happens to be the only district loss under Head Coach Trent Milby.
    Ok, enough about the Lady Knights and their unprecedented run. Let's talk about the Knights and their success over the past couple of seasons.

  • Don't let your hunting license expire

    Your Kentucky hunting and fishing license will expire in a couple of weeks, on Feb. 29, Benny Kessler's birthday.
    I usually get my new one at the Louisville Boat Show but missed it this year. My preference is for the Sportsman's license. With this deal you'll be able to hunt and fish for everything Kentucky has to offer, except elk.
    Add a federal duck stamp for 2012 and you're ready to go for the year. Deer tags, wild turkey permits (spring and fall), waterfowl, doves and fishing are all included. Sorta like one-stop shopping.
