  • Alcohol charges dismissed...

    Two alcohol-related charges against University of Kentucky women’s basketball player Makayla Epps have been dismissed. The charges — possession of an alcoholic beverage by a minor and possession of an open alcohol beverage container in a motor vehicle — were dismissed June 10 on the recommendation of the county attorney, with leave to reinstate. The court record notes that Epps completed 20 hours of community service.

    Yes, I said mice ... and snakes. But mostly mice! Not the little gray mice that sometimes get in the house or are left on your doorstep by the family cat (as a gift).
    I’m talking about those evil deep woods mice. The kind with big, crusty yellow teeth and blood red eyes.
