  • SCC Patriots baseball teams team...

    On Friday, March 9, the University of the Cumberlands (UC) Patriots and the St. Catharine College Patriots baseball teams partnered together in an effort to help the people affected by the tornado damage that occurred throughout Kentucky recently.
    Although fierce competitors on the diamond, the two teams decided to come together to lend support to the East Bernstadt area and the families that desperately are searching for relief. Both schools are within 80 miles of East Bernstadt with students that are attending both institutions from the area.

  • Near death experience

    Well, the big game is over.
    With all the anticipation leading up to the game, I'm almost sad to see it be over. Of course, the game I am referring to was the battle of the Bluegrass between Kentucky and Louisville. As we all know, the Wildcats pulled out the eight-point victory much to the pleasure of most likely the biggest Kentucky fan I know, Bobby Joe Farmer.

  • April Fools fishin'

    Our Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers April Fool's Day Tournament on Green River was interesting.
    At our 8 a.m. launch, the weather was a little cooler than it's been and it was overcast. As the day progressed it got just plain nasty looking.
    A dark wall cloud moved in bringing a steady wind and some small rollers. It actually got to the point that John and I found an open spot at the state dock, pulled in under a roofed slip, tied off and waited to see what was going to happen.
