Kentucky Basketball — Agony or Ecstasy

Agony or Ecstasy—By John Huang

(LEXINGTON, Ky.) — I’m staring at Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari up on the podium. He looks weathered, fatigued, and burdened, as if he’s aged a hundred years in the past six months. He jokingly calls them “dog years,” as if the time at the Kentucky helm has been somehow magnified by the overwhelming mantle of suffocating responsibility. With apologies to Sylvester Stallone, Calipari’s bruised spirit, bloodshot eyes, and furrowed brow reminds me of a bloated version of a fading Rocky Balboa. I’m transfixed by his image. I can’t stop staring at him, unable to fully grasp either the reality or the significance of what I’m seeing.

KU retires coal-fired units

Kentucky Utilities Company announced today that the combination of stricter environmental regulations and customers’ embracing energy-efficiency measures will enable the utilities to retire two of the company’s oldest coal-fired units. In making its decision, KU analyzed a number of alternatives for meeting the anticipated stricter Environmental Protection Agency regulations, including the Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) rule, and the increased use of LED lighting and other energy efficiency measures. Based on those factors, the company determined the least-cost solution for customers is to retire two older coal-fired units at the E.W. Brown Generating Station in February 2019.
