  • Would you go to the Olympics?

    The 2016 Olympics scheduled for Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in August is fast becoming an almost irrelevant event.  

    Many of the top athletes are choosing not to go for various reasons with golfer Jordan Spieth the latest to announce that he was not going to participate.  

    The main reason is the Zika virus, but there are other “health concerns.”

    A Harrison County man was recently named head coach of the Georgetown University (Ky.) Fishing Team.

    Shawn Combs, 38, can hardly contain his excitement over being placed in charge of the Georgetown anglers.

    “This is just unreal,” Combs said in an interview on Tuesday. “I am just beside myself. This is a great opportunity and I am just so excited.”

  • Recap of a week of mistakes plus...

    We just returned from a mini vacation to Williamsburg, Virginia, where I had time to contemplate just how old and forgetful that I am getting.  

    Before I start, let me say that if poor behavior and rudeness was a sport some of the people that I observed during our trip would be world class.  But since it isn’t a sport, I will skip over that.

    The Joe Mooney Invitational was just completed at the Cynthiana Country Club and apparently I butchered the scores that I reported.
