    The field wasn't the only thing sloppy at Collins High School Thursday night.

  • Karas wins 2 out of 3 titles at KHSAA state track meet

    LOUISVILLE – Like the song says, two out of three ain't bad.

    Especially if you are Caterina Karas, and you just won two out of the three events you were entered in at Thursday's Class AA 2011 KHSAA State Track & Field Championships.

    Karas, a junior at Collins, didn't get the triple crown she was trying for, but she still established herself as the distance queen of 2A by winning the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs and also finishing second in the 800 at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park on the University of Louisville's campus.

  • WICHE: Some plants like it wet

    There are some plants that demand good drainage: taxus, coreopsis, gaillardia and penstemon, to name a few.

    I have lost them all because they were poorly sited in the garden but now that I know where water is slow to drain I now where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.
