The Clark County Fiscal Court is considering jumping on the band wagon - or the golf cart as it turns out. Court members agreed Wednesday to continue reviewing a proposal that would allow commuters to drive specially equipped golf carts on certain streets and roads with low speed limits. The proposal is similar to a ordinance passed by the Winchester Board of Commissioners in September, which allows carts to be used on about 350 streets and alleys in the city. Proponents of the ordinance say it will help local residents save on fuel costs and reduce carbon emissions by "going green.

Dear Editor, During the Great American Brass Band Festival, the band Jack Brass I found to be crass They weren't from New Orleans. Their rude innuendoes sent us home. I considered boycotting the GABBF festivities due to Olympia's uninvited status, but instead I decided to go and see their replacement myself. How disappointed I was in their performance. It seemed they focused their talents mainly on rude innuendoes about women, talking about fine backsides, and words that rhymed with "cities" and "Kentuck"!

Children will be hunting wild turkeys, deer, black bears and baboons — well, actually replicas of those creatures — this Saturday at Blackfish Golf and Hunt Club. Angela Rice, co-owner of the club, said that 200 children from Jessamine County will be there for the opening day of a new archery course, and the public is also invited to attend. “We’ll have food and an open house, and kids can take tours,” she said.

I remember my first year covering sports at George Rogers Clark High School. Roaming the sidelines as a football ball boy was Andrew Rogers. I introduced myself and got a kick out of watching Rogers and Kelsey Mitchell make sure the balls were kept clean and the game stayed on track. At the time, I think Rogers was a freshman or an eighth-grader. I don't remember. He was very nice and has called me Mr. Taylor ever since. Since then, Rogers has graduated and is a sophomore at Kentucky.
