  • Biggest Blue fans: Mathis and...

     

    Editor’s note: We did an informal survey via Facebook to find out who the biggest UK fan in Henry County is. After nominations closed Friday the “sports department” sat down to analyze the data and came up with a tie. Linda Sarrett Mathis, a teacher at Henry County High School, and Darlene Watts of Eminence are such ardent fans that we could not deny either the right to be called the Biggest Big Blue Fan.

    Watts and Mathis did not take the traditional course towards big Blue fandom.
