  • Sheppard: ’96 Cats better than ‘...

    Indiana and Vanderbilt were the only teams to beat the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team in its memorable march to the national title this past season.

    However, there’s at least one other team that Jeff Sheppard believes could’ve beaten the Wildcats – the 1995-96 UK team.

  • This bird’s name is well-deserved

    This is one of my favorite birds, and the major reason because it is well known in the bird world as the "King of Song."

    It is the very best of the mockers and can duplicate the songs of at least 30 different bird species in rapid succession. Each phrase of the songs can be repeated two to six times, but it is usually three times.

    Add to this a variety of sounds from whistles to barks, and you may even hear the tinkling sound of a piano or the sound of a squeaky hinge.

  • Hicks plays again in Shelby –...

    It wasn’t quite a homecoming for Darryl Hicks, considering he still lives in Shelbyville.

    However, Wednesday was his return to a basketball court in Shelby County.
