  • In remembrance of a friend named 'Bo'

    My childhood friend, Vinis “Bo” Kelly, Jr., died May 6. We became friends when I was in the second grade and Bo was in the third.

    Bo initiated the friendship. I never knew why. I wish I had asked him.

    I do know what gave rise to our friendship. It was a schoolyard bully and his cronies.

    The bully and his cronies shall remain nameless. Perhaps over time, they grew up to be good men.

    They were not good boys. For today, I will refer to them as “B and Company.”

    Lady Mustangs’ pitcher Madisyn Eads confounded the Lady Cats’ hitters all day as she pitched a one-hitter. Eads stuck out nine batters and walked three.

  • The Greatest will be missed

    As a young boy I watched Muhammad Ali in amazement. Not just for his incredible boxing skills but also for his brash, hilarious speaking style. Ali could dazzle in the ring with his incredibly quick feet and hands. Outside the ring he was incredibly quick with his dazzling wit.

    He was a trash talker before it was cool. But it was more than the way he taunted opponents and reporters. He made up simple rhymes that said so much. In another life he could have written campaign ads and commercial jingles.

  • Fresh face joins Local for the summer

    As luck would have it, dog hugging, blanket fort-building and antique shopping are not majors offered at Campbellsville University, where I go to school. I’m proficient in all of these things; however, my natural love for writing and people led me to choose mass communications with an emphasis in journalism and an English minor.
