Local Volunteers Needed

Spring weather in Kentucky can be unpredictable and disasters can strike any time. The American Red Cross is seeking volunteers with flexible schedules to respond to single and multi-family home disaster incidents in Clay and surrounding counties. Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers respond to assist families with shelter, support, and access to basic needs immediately following a disaster event such as winds, tornadoes, and flash floods. Required training is free and convenient. If you would like to help your neighbors and your community during disasters, become a Red Cross volunteer by visiting http://www.redcross.org/volunteer and completing an online application. For more information contact Terry Burkhart at 859-253-1331.

Kentucky Basketball — Mauled in Memphis

Mauled in Memphis—By John Huang

I’ve made no bones about the fact that I do not like the University of North Carolina. Everything about the dreaded Tar Heels reeks of high-browed elitism. All the rhetoric about keeping their coaching fraternity “in house,” the hubris of “the Carolina Way,” and jokes about God being a Carolina fan because he made the sky “Carolina blue”—it’s all enough to make any Wildcat fan immediately upchuck. Throw in the fact that back in the 80’s, Kentucky and Carolina jockeyed back and forth for supremacy in total NCAA victories and you can see why Carolina is public enemy number one in my book. Ask anyone over forty and they’ll be sure to agree.

Kentucky Basketball — Bruins Ruined!

Bruins Ruined!—By John Huang

As a kid growing up in the 60’s and 70’s, the mere mention of UCLA basketball would immediately invoke in my mind a magical sense of awe and wide-eyed wonder. In my own imaginary world, Coach John Wooden would pencil me into his starting lineup alongside Lew Alcindor, Lynn Shackelford, Curtis Rowe, and Henry Bibby. Together, our team would win a slew of consecutive national titles and become the envy of every competing college program in the land.

Spring turkey hunting

Spring turkey hunting is slipping into position before daybreak and sitting still as the sun eases over the hills. It is breaking the silence with a call and getting a response that sends a shock of excitement down your spine. It is coaxing a love-struck gobbler closer and keeping your wits as it struts into range. In Kentucky, the 2017 season is right around the corner. Hunters ages 15 and younger are first up. The youth-only season is the weekend of April 1-2. The general statewide season opens April 15 and runs through May 7.
