  • A God I can yell at

    Every Saturday morning I go to the Panera near my house and write my column for the following week.
    I order an egg white and cheese breakfast sandwich and a small coffee and sit at the table that faces the big window so I can watch the traffic go by.
    I spread my stuff out, my notepad and pen and laptop and assorted notes. Most weeks I already know what I’m going to write about, but not always.

    The Harrison County Fillies beat Nicholas County, Jeffersontown, Bryan Station and Robertson County twice to raise their season record to 12-3 after Tuesday’s games.  
    Last Wednesday the Nicholas County Lady Jackets fell to 8-7 on the year as Harrison County handed them an 11-0 loss in five innings.  
    The game was scoreless until the bottom of the third when Madison Polley singled and Nicholas County hurler Jonna Watkins could not find the plate, walking two.  

  • A ritual of spring

    A Ritual of Spring
    It is that time of year again when the top college players decide whether to stay in school or go on to the professional level.  
    Since John Calipari has been at The University of Kentucky, there have always been some players destined to leave.  
    This year was no exception. In fact, it was made ridiculous when the entire squad opted to put their name into consideration by the pros.  
    Of course, under the new rule, as long as they do not hire an agent they can still come back to school for the following year.
