  • What you need to know when hot weather fishing

    By Shelton Young

    I’ve been asked by aspiring writers, “What kind of training did I have to be a writer?”
    That’s simple, I didn’t have any “formal” training. That is, unless you consider high school English as formal training. It would seem that somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind, some of the things Mrs. Raley tried to teach me might have taken hold.

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky ‘felt like home’ for Georgia junior quarterback

    By Larry Vaught

    Just a few hours after he announced his commitment to Kentucky, Georgia junior quarterback Jarren Williams was on the phone talking to potential future teammates.
    "When he walks into a room, he lights up the whole room," said Anthony Williams, the quarterback's father. "He makes everybody feel important. He is a leader. He knows how to get guys to do things they need to do in order to win. He takes an interest in them and makes them all feel important."

  • Tee Time: Communities will miss SCC golf coach

    By Dennis George

    The impending closure of St. Catharine College has been well chronicled and reported in various medium since the June 1 announcement.
    Obviously, it is very disappointing for those individuals who will lose their jobs and for those students whose dreams have been shattered.
    The economies in Marion, Washington and Nelson counties will suffer from a loss of housing and consumer spending.
    And yes, my friends, the golfing community is going to be a loser as well.

  • Woods and Waters: Catching the same fish twice

    Interesting...true...story
    At our last Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers Tournament on Lake Cumberland I watched John catch the same five pounder twice.
    The first time it was evident he had a good fish from the excitement in his voice as he yelled, "Get the net!" Course he always yells "Get the net" no matter the size of the bass but this time it was enough to make me actually move a little.
    After we got the bass in the boat and took pictures, we put it in the live well and juiced it up with some "please release me" treatment.

  • Vaught’s Views: Linebacker Kash Daniel is adjusting to life at UK

    By Larry Vaught

    Linebacker Kash Daniel knew playing football at Kentucky and in the Southeastern Conference would be a big adjustment. What the former Paintsville High School star did not know was just how big it would be.

  • Tee Time: Oakmont to present challenge in US Open

    By Dennis George

    Each of golf’s majors is unique in its own way.
    The Masters is the only one of the four played at the same venue each year.
    Golfers participating in The Open Championship must be able to maneuver their ball around the nuances of links golf.
    The PGA can boast that it is has the toughest field and they allow the players to make birdies instead of trying to have a winning score over par.
    And, then there is the US Open.

  • Just do good

    By Gerard Flanagan

    "The time is always ripe to do something right" is a quote I heard once. I can't recall where I heard that quote from, but it's always stuck with me because of its power and truth. It doesn't matter where you are, what you're doing, or who you are. There's never a bad time to do something right and good. After all, is there ever a good time to do something bad?  

  • Woods and Waters: 4-H Camp is fantastic for both kids and adults

    I got to spend all of last week at 4-H Camp on Lake Cumberland. To say everyone had a good time would be an understatement. The kids were kids and did a lot of singing, dancing, high and low ropes, dancing, archery, kayaking, dancing, fishing, spelunking, dancing and a bunch of other activities. Did I mention dancing?

  • Vaught’s Views: Landon Young hopes to play, possibly start, his freshman year on UK’s football team

    By Larry Vaught

    His friends Kash Daniel of Paintsville and Drake Jackson of Woodford County were enrolled at Kentucky for spring practice and got a jump start on their collegiate football career by graduating from high school a semester early.
    Yet Lafayette's Landon Young has no second thoughts about opting for a chance to win a state heavyweight wrestling championship (he did) and state titles in the shot put and discus (he won one, finished second in the other).
