  • Travis Martin, No. 13, helps the Eagles soar high

    Sitting down during his normal pre-game routine just before the start of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Association baseball tournament in Berea, Travis Martin was so surprised he was named to the KIAC Second-Team that he wasn’t even ready to receive his award. But, after his name was called, the Asbury College sophomore quickly put on his cleats, stood up and hurriedly walked over to receive the award.

    For the 2007 Henry County High School graduate who turned a rocky start at Asbury into landing a starting position in less than two years, it was a shocker.

Heck, I thought about taping the game and making a highlight reel, maybe the top-10 plays. I was ready.

    A new fire truck could be coming to Pleasureville.

    The commission voted 3-1 to accept a $156,600 bid for a new rescue truck. Accepting the bid, commissioner Gary Grigsby said, would be contingent upon the city receiving a loan with “satisfactory terms.”

    Mayor Rodney Young said the fire department should be able to pay for the truck itself, “unless we get in a bind.” If the new truck is purchased, the city would sell one of its older trucks, hoping to get at least $10,000.
