Dear Editor, I would like to thank Davis Brown for his effort in helping the Danville baseball team this past weekend in our Danville Arby's Invitational. Davis helped with coaches, bus drivers and fans from the three teams (Kentucky Country Day, Nelson County and North Oldham) to relay important information such as parking, rest rooms and where to sit. Davis also worked with the press box and obtained rosters and lineups. When a parent from Nelson County asked about area shopping, Davis quickly gave her directions and offered his cell phone if she needed to call.

The East Jessamine girls didn't were missing their floor general Tuesday night. That combined with poor shooting and low rebound totals dropped the Jaguars on the road against Nelson County to open the season, 56-36. Ashley Willoughby, junior point guard, was scratched from the lineup due to illness, Coach Ralph Sallee said. "We found out the day before Ashley wasn't going to be there," he said. "And we weren't able to make a quick adjustments. " The Jaguars were in the game through the first half, but the Cardinals pulled away in the third quarter, in large part due to East's inability to get shots to fall in.

STANFORD - Cooler weather can't come soon enough for Larry French. August's oppressive heat has taken a toll on everyone, but the Lincoln County coach might be a little more eager than most to feel the chill of autumn. By the time fall finally arrives, French figures the Patriots will make far fewer mistakes. "We've just got to keep working and getting better, and hopefully by the time cool weather rolls around we'll be ready to play," he said. Until then, he'll have to sweat it out while the Patriots play a grueling early-season schedule.
