  • UNDERWOOD: Catch the spirit of success with 3 key steps

    USA! USA! USA! could be heard chanted around the country on Sunday afternoon when the U.S. women’s national soccer team played Japan in the World Cup. This courageous group of women won the hearts of not only diehard soccer fans but also many Americans as well because of their determination and will to win.

    Game after game we watched as they came back from deficits and overcame obstacles to ultimately triumph. Even though they came up two penalty kicks short after leading most of the game, they held their heads high as the true champions.

  • ‘Hobby’ horse event doesn’t come cheaply

    One of the top summer tourist attractions in Kentucky, the Shelbyville Horse Show, brings the state tons of money, but there is a lot of money that goes into putting on the show, too.

    The show, in its 22nd year, draws thousands of people and hundreds of horses to the Shelby County Fairgrounds each summer, and it has grown from a humble production into a grand gathering for both elegant horses and prime social time.

    That means a big investment by not only organizers but also those who ship their horses to town.

    "The rain really postponed our early planting, but the result has been maturity dates coming later," said Mary Courtney who runs Courtney Farms in Bagdad with her husband, Shane. "For instance, we just started harvesting tomatoes this year, while last year we were harvesting them at the end of June."
