  • Benjy Kinman boat ramp closed

    The boat ramp at Benjy Kinman Lake near Drennon will close Sept. 14 while repairs are being made to the lake’s dam. The project is expected to be completed in time for the spring fishing season.

    Anglers may still fish from the bank or launch canoes or kayaks while the project is underway. To aid with repairs, the 88-acre lake will be drawn down three to four feet.

    The lake is located in the Boone Tract of the Kentucky River Wildlife Management Area. Anglers must release all largemouth bass caught in Benjy Kinman Lake.

  • Help!

    The beginning of a new school year always brings back a recurring theme as I try to cover sports in the county.

    Unless a) my cloning project is finally successful, b) I figure out how to be in two places at once, or c) I completely abandon my family and live in my car, I cannot possibly cover every level of participation in local sports.

    I would try to cover everything myself but I do enjoy seeing my family a little during fall sports season.
