PHILADELPHIA - Harrodsburg native and Eastern Kentucky University tight end Patrick Bugg has been named to The Sports Network's Division I-AA All-America first team. Bugg, a junior, was the only first-team selection from the Ohio Valley Conference on the team released Tuesday. He was also a second-team selection on The Associated Press I-AA All-America team released Wednesday, behind New Hampshire senior Jonathan Williams. Bugg was named to the all-Ohio Valley Conference first team last month after leading all OVC players with 10 touchdown receptions, including a memorable catch Oct. 22 against Southeast Missouri on Oct. 22 when he hauled in a fourth-down, 23-yard touchdown reception with one second left to lift Eastern to a 33-32 victory.

STANFORD - One of the suspects in the 2002 murders of Bo Upton and Ryan Shangraw in Lincoln County was the victim of an elaborate kidnapping scheme in 2006 in New Hampshire. The Interior Journal in Stanford reported today that Matthew Tolson was lured to a nightclub, forced at gunpoint into a Mercedes-Benz, ordered to disrobe, robbed of cash, a cell phone and four gold teeth, and was shot at as he ran away. Police found Tolson when they responded to a call of a naked man pounding on doors in a residential area and calling for help.

WASHINGTON - In the last 24 elections, since 1912, winners of the presidency won a plurality of the states along the Mississippi. Today the Republican presidential candidate with perhaps the most impressive resume says: Republicans should assume that in 2008 they will lose Ohio (20 electoral votes), where the state party's corruption and incompetence cost it the governorship, a U.S. Senate seat and a House seat in 2006. So the GOP candidate must carry Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota (27 electoral votes)

WASHINGTON - Almost all the early predictions about this presidential race were badly, wildly and gloriously wrong. Republicans were supposed to return to a miniaturized version of Reaganism - the narrow box of predictable, anti-government orthodoxy - which would have turned out to be a political coffin. Instead, the two hottest Republican candidates are downright heterodox. Mike Huckabee pushes an unapologetic economic populism. And John McCain - with his heretical stands on global warming and immigration - also presents a conservative message that is reformulated, not just reconstituted.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Iowa voters in both parties staged a rebellion against the status quo and against the past. Mike Huckabee's decisive victory over Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucuses marks a revolution in Republican politics. An outspent outsider triumphed over a former governor who played an inside game. Huckabee's victory is also the revenge of evangelical Christians who had been taken for granted by the GOP establishment and decided to vote for one of their own, a Baptist minister turned politician.

Pricilla Womack's creations can sometimes be years in the making. The Stanford woman and student development assistant at Kentucky School for the Deaf is a freelance woodburning artist. As a high-schooler at Arizona School for the Deaf, she was an award-winning artist. She later went on to receive a degree in art.

My college roommate, Parker Borg, went to the Philippines. Before he left, he encouraged me to apply. Many years later he became the US ambassador to Iceland and Mali. Starting with Ghana, more than 200,000 people have now served in some 139 countries all around the globe. The mission for this independent government agency “to promote world peace and friendship” has essentially remained the same with three simple goals: 1. Help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.

Dear Editor, Mr. Milton Reigelman wrote discussing the Second Amendment and stated that the Supreme Court has discussed whether it is a state right or an individual right to bear arms. There has been much discussion among constitutional scholars about this. Some have said it as a state right, but more see it as an individual right. On March 9, the U. S. Court of Appeals for District of Columbia outlawed the Washington handgun ban because it violates the Second Amendment. This ban prevented law abiding citizens from owning handguns.
