    “We didn’t play hard coming out in the second half,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team was tied with the Admirals 17-all at intermission. “We’ve got to want to go win the game and tonight I don’t think we wanted to go win the game.

  • Cliff Swallows build nests of art

    The American Cliff Swallow nests in colonies, and each nest is an absolute work of art.
    Their nests are vase- or gourd-shaped constructions that typically contain 900 to 1,200 mud pellets.
    In Kentucky, these colonies can be found commonly on the bridges on U. S. 68 across Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake as well as in a large concrete box culvert on the road leading north from U.S. 68 to Lake Barkley State Park.
    They also nest on structures up and down the Ohio River, including in and around Louisville.
