It’s a Doggone Win—By John Huang

During my stint in the military back in the late eighties, a couple of my best army buddies were hard core Georgia Bulldog fans. Armed with our comparable biweekly subscriptions to the Cats Pause and the Georgia Bulldogs magazines, we would frequently engage in heated Cats vs Dawgs debates regarding our beloved teams. We all accepted the fact that Kentucky always stunk in football and Georgia in basketball. The major difference, however, was that UK fans still cared about football while UGA fans didn’t even acknowledge that the sport of basketball existed.

This Week at the State Capitol

February 13 – 17, 2017

Headlines in recent days have made it clear that Kentucky’s problems with heroin, other illegal opioids and prescription drug abuse, continue to take lives and devastate communities at a shocking rate. On Tuesday, the Senate approved Senate Bill 14, which is aimed at getting drug dealers off the streets by strengthening penalties for trafficking in heroin and fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid. Under the legislation, which was approved on a 36-0 vote, trafficking in less than two grams of these substances would be elevated to a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison. Later in the week, a pair of bills addressing the drug crises were also approved in the House committees.

Peak of float-and-fly fishing

Although we’ve seen many warm fronts this winter with temperatures in the 60s just this past weekend, the water in our highland reservoirs is still cold. Water temperatures are in the high 40s in Lake Cumberland, Dale Hollow and Laurel River Lake. Once water temperatures drop below 50 degrees for extended periods, threadfin shad begin to suffer from the cold water.
