Calipari pleased with No. 3 Kentucky’s progress

LEXINGTON Kentucky doesn’t need John Wall to win games. The No. 3 Wildcats are just as deadly without their star point guard playing to his potential. In his worst appearance of the season, Wall scored six points in Kentucky’s 81-55 romp against LSU on Saturday. Despite a poor night for the freshman, who ranks among the Southeastern Conference’s top 10 […]

Gabby’s fishing fever

Bass fishing with tube baits

There are many baits that will catch bass during certain times of the year, but only a handful of baits will catch bass year round. Some of these baits include jigs, spoon and blade type baits and the tube bait. The tube bait has been around for several years. The key thing about the tube bait is that it is […]

Season off to ‘bumping’ start

NASCAR got its wish Saturday night in the closing laps of the Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway.

Jeff Gordon took NASCAR at its word […]

For example, who needs Jay Leno or Conan O’Brien for comic relief, when we’ve got Andre Bauer? He’s the Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina (a state, by the way, that really is a comer on […]

Political Cartoon

‘Finish the kitchen’

If President Obama gets to sign a health-reform bill, as I believe he will, one reason may be Rep. Jay Inslee’s difficult experience renovating his kitchen. He told his kitchen story at a House Democratic caucus after Republican Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts sent Inslee’s colleagues into paroxysms of dismay, chaos and fear. Brown’s triumph reduced the Democrats’ majority in […]

A true miracle

Everyone knows that what doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger. That is particularly true in politics, where a hard kick either knocks you down or wakes you up. President Obama and the Democrats got that hard kick last month, when a perfect storm resulted in the election of Massachusetts’ first Republican senator since Ed Brooke. In one night, the president […]
