  • Cruising the insect superhighway

    If there’s one interstate I regret not having easy access to, it’s the so-called bug superhighway meant to facilitate millions of monarchs migrating from wintering grounds in Mexico to patches of milkweed in the Midwest.

    Developing a long garden spot to shepherd these butterflies on their 3,000-mile round-trip journey to reproduce is the centerpiece of the new federal plan meant to curb the steep drop in monarch numbers.

  • Dewitt cycles 100 miles to fight cancer

    Bobby Dewitt, a Henry County native who lives in St. Louis, took on a challenge that many would have deemed impossible when he agreed to do a 100-mile bike ride around Lake Tahoe in early June.

    Dewitt had a good reason to take on the challenge. The ride was organized to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a group that raises money to find a cure for blood cancers.

    Dewitt’s father, Roy, died of lung cancer so he thought the opportunity to do something to help others fighting cancer was worth the ordeal.

  • Sparky's Boys need help

    Fantasy sports have taken the country by storm since the advent of the internet.

    I have been involved in fantasy baseball since well before all the leagues were put on the web.

Some didn’t want to stop meeting every year for the draft. They liked that we got together and actually sized up the competition face-to-face.

    The Kentucky Storm football team suffered a tough 40-6 loss just one week ago in their home opener against the Knoxville Knights. It was not how the team wanted to show off their game to the fans of Henry County.

    This week the Storm came out and played with a vengeance from the opening kickoff to defeat the Indy Trybe 38-0 and show the home fans that they are better than the display from a week ago.
