  • Changes for the better?

    The commissioner of Major League Baseball seems intent on changing the rules in order to speed up the game.  
    His focus is on the pitchers and the time that it takes between pitches. According to an article in the Chicago Tribune, his plan includes installing a time clock.  
    If this is the best that he can do, he needs to forget it and baseball might want to look for a new leader.

  • Recreation in America and...

    A WalletHub study of best and worst cities for recreation caught my eye recently and made me think of how it related to Cynthiana and Harrison County.  
    The study lists 100 cities ranking them from one, being the best, to 100, the worst, using 44 key indicators.
    The top four indicators are facilities, costs, quality and weather. Some of the other considerations are most park playgrounds for the population; walkable park access; spending on parks per capita; bike rental facilities and coffee and tea shops.

  • Kentucky Fish and Wildlife...

    The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission proposed several new fishing regulations at a special called meeting today.
    The commission recommends all hunting, fishing and boating regulations for approval by the General Assembly and approves all expenditures by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. All recommendations must be approved by legislators before they become law.
    If approved by legislators, fisheries regulations proposed at the meeting would take effect March 1, 2018.
