  • Lady Rockets whip Walton-Verona

  • What we think: Passing the boot can be dangerous

    A sure sign of spring is the first sighting of a group of people wearing similar shirts and holding up buckets for donations at an intersection near you.

    They’re there for good causes – they always are – but they’re also there at some peril, and that should require more scrutiny.

    Primary locations for those gathering days are the arteries leading to and from Interstate 64, and therein lies the problem: The traffic is just a little too jammed for this practice to be safe.

  • Keeping vets down on the farm

    The Holstein cows lined up on the Kalmey Dairy Farm on Tuesday morning were calmly eating a silage mix while a plastic-sleeved Dr. Melissa Lipps checked them one at a time for pregnancy. These black-and-white bovines gave no indication that they minded the intrusion – or even noticed.

    Lipps, like the dairy farm where she was working, is becoming an increasingly scarce commodity in Kentucky.

    Casey’s body is being assaulted by an infection that is leaving him dehydrated,  damaging other organs and sapping him bit by bit of his strength.

    He lies in the intensive-care unit of the Vanderbilt Medical Center, where doctors are trying to strengthen him for a life-extending heart transplant to replace that was damaged by an infection 20 years ago.

  • State will celebrate Arbor Day here

    On Tuesday morning at the Tim McClure Botanical Gardens, Vicki Sutherland and Barbara Troyer were spreading Snapshot - little round, yellow pellets laced with herbicide designed to keep down the weeds.
