    Two years ago my father-in-law Chuck bought a used johnboat and the small outboard engine that went with it.

    We couldn’t wait to get out on Taylorsville Lake in it; he had lived on the lake for a while and we had talked about a guys’ day out on the lake for a while. We finally set a date during spring break in early April.

  • Prepared for everything? Think...

     

     

    On March 1, I started my annual ritual of getting back into shape after a winter of hibernating.

    It was not easy. The first few runs were painful and I had issues with my 30-year-old bike. But I persevered (and got a new bike) and the exercise became easier. At some point I decided to turn the exercise into training for a duathlon.

  • Never-say-die Cats rally in the...

    It was a game that looked to be all but over, just four innings in.

    The “never say die” Henry County Wildcats found themselves down 8-0 after four innings and had yet to shut down the mighty North Oldham hitting machine even for an inning in the second round of the 8th Region baseball tournament.

    But the Cats held the Mustangs scoreless in the fifth and then put their rally caps on and made a game of it in the top of the sixth.
