  • Kentucky's claim as "Horse Capital of the World" is at risk

    To the editor:

    Kentucky and horses... They’re a natural combination that has made the Bluegrass State the “Horse Capital of the World.” But Kentucky’s stake to the title is at risk.

    States that have historically have been unable to compete with Kentucky recognize the horse industry’s viability and success and are attracting Kentucky-based horsemen with enhanced purses and breeder incentives which will substantially alter Kentucky racing in the next one to three years.

  • "We all is homeless - just workin our way toward home"

    I promised Gator that I would write about him.

    His real name is Mike, and he lives in the woods in a camp with some other people.

    I only met him briefly, which is par for the course for reporters. We get to know people long enough to get what we need for a story, but often not long enough to care.

    I’m talking about myself here, and the truth is I’m not proud of it. But I’m telling you this because God’s been chipping away at my uncaring, although he’s got a long way to go.
