  • Preservation Pedal kicks off in Springfield


    Main Street looked like a cyclist convention on Saturday.

    Cars with empty bike carriers were sprinkled all over downtown, as nearly two hundred cyclists from around the state came for a 10-, 30- or 50-mile trip around the county.
    The event, known as Preservation Pedal, was sponsored by Preservation Kentucky, a non-profit historic preservation organization.
    Nell Haydon, director of Springfield’s Main Street / Renaissance, said many of the cyclists she spoke with had never been to Springfield.

  • Sports withdrawal


    It’s that dreadful time of year again.

    No, not time to mow the grass. I actually enjoy that.
    It’s the lull of the national sports calendar.
    Sure, baseball is on every day, but I haven’t followed that closely since the strike-shortened season back in the 1990’s.
    Yes, there is golf on television, too. I enjoy watching golf on TV (when I want to take a nice long nap).
    I’m stuck with updates on the NFL and NBA lockouts, which only sadden me.

    Washington County used three big innings to nearly run-rule South Hardin on Sunday at Graham Memorial Park in Lebanon.

    The highlight of the afternoon came from John Floyd, who cleared loaded bases with a triple, then reached home himself on an error for an inside-the-park grand slam.
    Floyd fell to the ground with joy after crossing home, only to be picked up by the ankles by his coach, as he was carried to the dugout among cheers from his teammates and fans.

    Thomas Bartley began the ninth inning with a 0-1 single, then stole second to put himself in scoring position.
