  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky...

    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.

  • Born to ride

    A howling wind, a blazing hot day, or the biting cold. A close call, a breakdown, sometimes multiple ones in a single day. Ronnie Mudd has experienced them quite often. Despite it all, however, he says he wouldn't trade his passion for anything.
    Ever since he bought his first bike in 2011 in Danville, biking has taken Mudd on a journey.
