People and things.

* Danville basketball.

The Admirals will give fans a preview of the upcoming basketball season Saturday during Admiral Basketball Fan & Alumni Night from 5-8 p.m. at the high school.

An all-you-can-eat chili supper ($5 for adults, $3 for students) will also be held. Cost for the basketball program that will include the high school and middle school teams is $2 for adults and $1 for students.

Before the high school team scrimmages at 7:40 p.m., there will be an alumni game featuring 32 former players.

Merle Clark (1961) and Otis Ford (1966) are among the alumni players. Others scheduled to play in the game are Shawn Mountjoy (1979), Tony Griffin (1979), Chris Ring (2202), Paul Morse (1992), Bobby Joe Potts (1972), Johnny Raines (1970), Maurice Harris (1989), Jeremy Burgess (1992), Greg Elmore (1988), Dan Kriz (1980), Karl Bartleson (1991), Ken Acree (1991), Earnest Dunn (1998), Willy Baughman (1971), Brandon Tabbs (2001), Jason Furr (1996), Steven Swann (1999), Bo Hawkins (1972), Joe Stallworth (1970), Anthony Letcher (1990), Jerry Coy (1971), Chad Bartleson (2003), Clifford Berry (1998), Lonnie McGuire (1986), CeCe Ford (1978), Jermaine Johnson (1996), Binky Mayes (2001), David Cress (1978), Kevin Napier (1975) and Blue Shearer (1999).


The alumni will scrimmage from 7:15-7:40, which should be more than enough time for most of the players to spend running, or jogging.

Still, it's always a good idea when a school incorporates players who have contributed to a program's past success into the current year and should make for a fun evening.

* Erin and Moe Kluesener.

The two former Garrard County soccer players each earned Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors for their play at Berea.

Moe Kluesener was named to the all-conference first team as a midfielder while Erin was named second team at halfback because of her defensive ability.

Berea lost in the conference championship round 3-0 to nationally-ranked Bethel College.

* Mickie DeMoss.

The University of Kentucky women's basketball coach will speak here Nov. 16 at a joint meeting of the alumni chapters from Boyle and Mercer counties.

The public is invited to the dinner at Danville Country Club which starts at 7 p.m. Cost is $25 for alumni members and $30 for others. Reservations can be made by calling Beverly Durham at 236-7499. Scholarship donations to help support Danville and Boyle County students at UK will also be accepted.

DeMoss spent 18 years as the top assistant coach to Tennessee's Pat Summitt before coming to Kentucky last season. Kentucky finished 16th in the nation in attendance last season and DeMoss brought in what many consider UK's best overall recruiting class, which was ranked sixth nationally, this year.

* Auto racing.

Congratulations to Donnie Sullivan of Stanford. He finished second in the points standings in the Sportsman Division at Corbin Speedway this season.
