  • Rough Riders

    Like a swarm of hornets on steroids, motors roar.
    Rubber slashes at the dirt, which coats everything in its path.
    In the war-like chaos, there is silence as a rider launches himself off a mound appropriately referred to as 911.
    A grill smolders, a dog pants, a toddler sitting on her dad’s shoulders smiles.
    The rider lands, people cheer.
    “They make it look easy and so smooth,” Sharon “Sam” Bach of Lebanon said.

  • Kentucky girls split with Indiana

    Kentucky’s high school all-stars got off to a good start in their annual series with Indiana, thanks to the contributions of a trio of Lady Knights.

    Indiana’s girls had a clear size advantage, but Kentucky forced 27 turnovers en route to an 84-78 victory Friday night at Freedom Hall. Indiana earned a split, however, winning Saturday’s game in Indianapolis, 100-86.

  • Looking for bass? Then prepare...

    I had an announcement in my last week’s article about the Kid’s Fishing Derby at Sportsman Lake last Saturday.
    Unfortunately the article got cut and never made it to print. Not sure why, but sometimes it happens!
    Anyway, we had a good turnout and the kids all enjoyed themselves. Thanks go out to everyone who helped, especially the Mid-KY Bass Anglers and the Washington County High School Bass Club.
    A special thanks to Jason Spalding for organizing this years’ event.
