  • Losing is a good thing

    I don’t believe for a minute that actually losing does a team any good.  
    I believe that you can teach from a win as well as a loss and a win is just better.
    The loss that I was referencing is UConn’s loss to Mississippi State in the Women’s NCAA Tournament.  
    UConn had won 111 straight games and was the odds-on favorite to again win the NCAA tournament title. It took Mississippi State an overtime and a last-second shot to get the job done but they got the job done.

  • Leave injured and orphaned...

    Wildlife Biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources recommend people to leave wildlife alone that appear to be abandoned.
    People pick up seemingly abandoned wildlife with the best of intentions, but do more to harm the animal than to help it.
    As a general rule, wildlife do not make good pets and are not truly abandoned when found in the wild. White-tailed deer and other species of wildlife leave their young for extended periods of time each day, only to return and take care of them.
