  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky basketball fans will have a special Christmas this year

    By Larry Vaught

    Kentucky basketball fans have a special Christmas treat coming their way thanks to former Wildcat Cameron Mills.
    His documentary, “The Team,” is a story about Kentucky’s 1996 national championship team and the 20th year anniversary the players and coaches held in August in Miami.
    That Kentucky team coached by Rick Pitino finished 34-2 and featured nine future NBA players. Mills felt there was a special story to tell about the team but wasn’t sure what it was.

  • Just keep showing up

    It’s not Christmas Day yet, and I’ve already started on my list of New Year’s resolutions.

    I was a poor college kid looking for an extra few bucks for the holidays and along came my then girlfriend, Emily, with a job opportunity. Somehow, she had connections with Santa’s workshop at the Paducah Mall and they were desperate for a Santa Claus.

  • Kentucky has been blessed with many ‘presents’ in 2016

    During the holidays, most of us probably don’t give much thought to the origin of the traditions common during this time of year. We put up Christmas trees, take our children to see Santa and sing carols because that’s what we’ve done for generations.

  • Career center offers full lineup of no-cost job search services

    By CARTER DYSON

    When I tell people I work for the Kentucky Career Center – Lincoln Trail, I’m often rewarded by their familiarity with the organization’s services. However, I am occasionally met with a look of uncertainty, and it’s almost always because someone has long referred to the career center as the unemployment office.
    While unemployment insurance assistance is a vital service to many of the job seekers who visit our center, it is just one of the many offerings available.
