Struttin’ Time: It’s time to start talking turkey once again


We are going to talk turkey, as the season will be here soon. We will start by talking about the five transitions that will last approximately 15 days each. Around March 30 in Kentucky, give or take five days, gobblers will leave winter mode and start finding hens. Big flocks of gobblers and hens will start traveling together. The majority […]

Hooray for Bam, but where’s Booker?

Vaught’s Views

It was really nice to see former UK player Bam Adebayo of the Miami Heat named to the NBA All- Star Game as a reserve. However, it’s perplexing how Phoenix guard Devin Booker, another former Cat, was left off the team. He was averaging 27 points, 6.4 rebounds and 4.1 rebounds per game and shooting 51 percent overall from the […]

Find your ‘honey hole’ for life now

This is the time of year that most lakes are at winter pool. This means the lakes are dropped to the lowest levels of the year to hold wintertime snow and rain runoff and will not flood their banks. Also work can be done on dams and along banks and other areas that need it. During this time of the […]

Choosing national forest hunt a no-brainer

Gee, ain’t it funny how time slips away? The words to that song are so true. During this off time from beating the bush to hunt my mind is filled with memories of hunts and days gone by. Here is one of those memories: The year was 1960 when my dad and Henry Sword hauled me to hunt in a […]

West Virginia signed cornerback Jairo Faverus of the Netherlands in December and has a commitment from Swedish tight end Victor Wikstrom for next year. Now Kentucky might be looking at […]

Struttin’ Time: Yes, you can tie this music CD to hunting


Sitting here drinking a cup of black coffee and listening to one of my favorite Letcher County people, Carla Gover, sing her latest songs on her new CD. Listening, remembering, and maybe wishing things were as simple now as they were then. Carla was one of the first kids I coached in Little League softball. Carla was the start of […]

Calipari credits Quickley’s hard work to his newfound success; Grid signee Young is on campus

After playing a receiver at quarterback for eight games in 2019, it seems almost ludicrous to wonder if the Kentucky offense can be as productive in 2020 when the Cats figure to have a traditional quarterback — hopefully 2018 starter Terry Wilson who led UK to 10 wins before getting hurt in the second game last year. “That’s a great […]

The Letcher County Central Lady Cougars won two games and lost one over the past week to improve their season record to 14 wins and six losses. They have also won five of six 14th Region games.

LCC boys fall in OT

Close but no cigar pretty much sums up the result of recent games played by the Letcher County Central Cougars. This past Saturday’s 60 to 52 overtime loss at Floyd Central marked the third time in four games the Cougars (3-12) nearly pulled out their fourth win of the season. The latest heartbreaking loss for LCC comes after a 55 […]
