  • Crappie fishing pro good company

    With a name like Whitey Outlaw, he might be suited to be a country-western star or maybe a World Wrestling fighter, but those who know the name, know he is one of the top crappie fishing pros in the country.
    Whitey has been fishing crappie tournaments since he was 15, when he won his first tournament on his home lake, Santee Cooper in South Carolina.
    He has fished every CrappieMasters major tourney since and he and his partner, Mike Parrott won the organization’s Classic three years ago.

  • St. Catharine pins 75-61 loss on...

    Campbellsville's Lady Tigers fiddled away a first-half lead, drew even early in the second half, but could not maintain their momentum, losing to the home-standing St. Catharine’s Lady Patriots 75-61 Saturday afternoon.
    Campbellsville built an early 11-4 lead on threes by Courtney Clifton (two) and Mackenzie Lee. But, CU would not hit another three the entire game and shot 27 percent from the field. As a matter of fact, after hitting four of its first six shots, CU went 3-22 the rest of the half. The Lady Tigers hit 16-58 shots from the field.

  • CU dismantles SCC 71-58

    Campbellsville University's Tigers, playing some of their best basketball of the season, dismantled St. Catharine  College and came away with its fourth straight win 71-58 Saturday in Springfield.
    The Tigers, who hit 5-7 on three-pointers in the first half while the Patriots (0-17) were shooting blanks, burst out to a 37-17 lead at the half.
    SCC closed to within 39-26 two and a half minutes into the second half, but CU responded with a 10-3 run of its own, punctuated by a fall-away three by Cedric Henderson as the shot clock was winding down.

  • Boat extended warranties

    Often people have described a boat as a hole in the water in which to throw money — or something like that. And, there is considerable truth in the saying.
    As I sit at the computer writing this column, the boat repair guy is due on Monday to work on my old 60-horse motor. There’s always something to repair, to spend money on.
    But, on the flip side, my boats have always given me lots of pleasure fishing the Ohio River, skiing, exploring river banks for a picnic spot, watching birds or just enjoying the scenery at Kentucky Lake or Green River.

  • Cold nights, mild days good for...

    There still are people who make maple syrup. It’s tasty, a sign of spring, and a lot of work.
    Maple syrup time is time when the wonderful aroma of cooking syrup can wafts its way down the valleys from sugar camp hills.
    Making maple syrup is almost a lost art.  Most people who make the sweet, tasty syrup in this part of the country do it for the enjoyment and make enough to earn a few bucks and provide a supply for family and friends.

  • Snow brings back ice cream...

    Although snow has been scarce this winter, snow still has been on my mind, and snow  brought to mind  something I really enjoyed in my younger years — snow ice cream. The fact is, I still enjoy it.
    Sometimes March produces some big snows. They don’t last long, but long enough for ice cream.
    Growing up, ice cream was a real treat. It was something very special.

  • Alabama rig is latest new hot...

    Remember the craze about the Big O bass lure? There were tales of them being rented on a day-to-day basis.
    Everybody wanted one back in 1967. Founder Fred Young couldn’t build them fast enough. They were handcrafted from balsa wood.
    Eventually, Cotton Cordell’s company obtained the rights to the lure and began mass producing the lure, which caught lots of big fish.
    There have been other lure crazes, but that was the biggest I recall until maybe now. Now, it’s the Alabama rig. It’s a bass catching sensation.
