  • 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.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights look to...

    Sitting at 2-4 and coming off a 19-point loss to the Southwestern Warriors Saturday, the Marion County Knights returned to the Roby Dome Monday to host the Green County Dragons.

  • A tradition

    For the 117th time Saturday, two members of the same team became opponents for 60 minutes. For 60 minutes, a battle ensued on a 100-yard long, 53 1/3-yard wide battlefield. The site? M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. The participants? The Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen. The finish? Memorable. Fifteen years in the making.
    At long last, the streak is over. For the first time since 2001, Army got to sing second. Army won.

  • 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.

  • WOODS AND WATERS: If you can’t...

    We’ve put a bunch of miles on our vehicles lately scouting for ducks and geese. While we’ve seen birds I’m thinking they’re mostly resident geese! Course the weather’s getting ugly up north so there should be new birds any day now.
    Fagan Branch, which is a “no hunting” area, is still a good indicator of duck and goose activity. If you go on a regular basis, at different times, you’ll soon be able to predict when the birds feed, rest and roost. And if ya get lucky ya might just see a bald eagle again this year!
