  • Spring training is in full swing

    Baseball is in full swing around the majors, with teams in the Grapefruit League and Cactus League.

    The Cincinnati Reds played the Chicago Cubs on March 12 and lost 8-6. Pitcher Bronson Arroyo struggled, giving up six hits and four runs over two innings.

    A key for Cincinnati’s offense was rookie shortstop Zach Cozart, who is hitting .375 this spring. Todd Frazier is also swinging the bat well and could end up making the ballclub out of spring training. He hit his third home run of the spring.

  • Third time not the charm for UK

    Sometimes the SEC Tournament bracket works out in your favor, see last year’s path to the tournament title, and sometimes it doesn’t. Last season, Kentucky avoided facing the stiffest and most familiar competition until the final day. This season, not so much. The Cats had the pleasure of playing the two best teams remaining in the tournament in consecutive days and for the third time this season. And clearly the third time was not the charm.

  • Easter: Celebration of life

    Easter is one of the best times of the year. Spring is just around the corner. You can buy "Peeps" at the store and there are always eggs to color. There is something about this holiday that propels us into good spirits. Maybe it’s the warm weather, baseball season beginning (Go Reds) or the hope of summer coming.

    I believe there is a bigger reason for the hope that spring brings to us. This hope is found is something much more profound. The hope of Easter comes in the reality of why we celebrate with so much anticipation.

  • With regrets, you can rot in Denmark

    "With regrets, you can rot in Denmark. That’s what she gets for breaking my heart." Those are my only two replies to the numerous emails I have received about the desperate situations some of you have found yourself in over the past few months.

    It seems while traveling some of our citizens lost their money and emailed me from their intelligent phones asking for assistance. I’ll change the names to protect the proposed guilty.

    A Harrison County grand jury did not indict Dr. Nicholas Catey on charges of cultivating marijuana.
