  • You wanna bet?

     

    “I’d be willing to bet you, if I was a betting man, that I’ve never bet on baseball.”

  • The Odd Couple

    “Life goes on, even for those of us who are divorced, broke, and sloppy.”
    Oscar Madison

    “The Odd Couple,” is one of Neil Simon’s funniest plays, even after almost 50 years since it first appeared on Broadway.  Now it’s coming to our town, by way of the Central Kentucky Community Theatre to the Opera House in Springfield.  

  • Just one word

    All it took for Doris Troy was, “Just One Look,” in the words of the hit song she wrote and sang to the top of the charts in 1963. “Just one look/ That’s all it took, yeah /Just one look.” Good and right for her.
     But sometimes, in other situations, all it takes is just one word — one word to change a life forever.

  • WC on the road to Richmond


    Bernard Smalley must have been really good last year because he found favor in Santa Claus. In fact, he came a little early for the coach.

    Right before Christmas, the coach was looking at an 0-5 record. His team was getting outscored, on average, by 30 points.
    The offense sputtered for 37 points a game. The defense was giving up 67 points a game. Things were not going well.
    Fast forward to Saturday night. The scene is dramatically different, almost like a different season entirely.

  • SCC keeps growing


    When I was very young, I used to have growing pains in my shins.

    It hurt at the time but later in life I enjoyed the benefit of my father’s height. Well, some of his height. I’ll never catch up to his 6-4 frame.
    The St. Catharine College athletics program is also experiencing growth. Lucky for them, they are not experiencing any shin pain that I am aware of.
    The local sports community is buzzing about SCC right now, and I look for that to increase as the athletics program expands.

  • Higdon previews legislative session agenda

    Usually, the first week is an organizational week during which the different parties elect their leadership.  This year was different. When we announced the Senate Majority legislative agenda in December, we committed to move aggressively on passing legislation regarding job creation, education, and transparent and responsive government.  With the passage of these bills, the “Agenda for Prosperity,” very few can say we didn’t deliver on that promise this first week.
