Jessamine County 4-H takes more than 290 campers, teen leaders and adult volunteers to summer 4-H camp each year. The camp offers young people the chance to experience the great outdoors and enjoy a week with their friends and classmates. The 4-H program, with support from many community businesses and organizations, is able to offer half scholarships to summer camp for those who are in financial need. Due to large demand, the program is currently looking for more businesses and organizations to step up and sponsor half scholarships.

Chuck Smith told Jordan Aumiller and the Boyle County coaching staff exactly what Aumiller had to do if he wanted a scholarship offer from Kentucky. "He had to come to our summer camp and do well. If you can do that, then obviously you are a good player and coach (Rich) Brooks has really been good about offering scholarships to players who come to camp and prove to him that they are good players," said Smith, Kentucky's linebackers coach who was also recently promoted to recruiting coordinator.

LEXINGTON - As Joker Phillips went through the list of offensive linemen Kentucky added during Wednesday's national signing day, a thought hit him. "We've signed nine guys that can play up front. We've signed more offensive linemen than we have on scholarship on campus right now," said Phillips. "But when you are building a program, that's where you build first. "We don't have a senior in the group in our offensive line. These are guys that will be with us a few years. We don't want to ever be short of offensive linemen again.

The summer camp, led by local artists, will allow participants to experience a broad range of artistry and, most importantly, encourage each student's personal interest, skill and growth in the arts. The daily sessions will include demonstrations and hands-on "exploration" in pottery, painting, drawing, drama, creative movement, poetry, storytelling and music.

Adding offensive linemen is a recruiting priority for the University of Kentucky, which loses three starters off this year's offensive line to graduation. The Wildcats added their second high school offensive linemen when 270-pound Gary Williams of Louisville Seneca decided Thursday night to make a verbal commitment to Kentucky. He had delayed a decision on his college choice while waiting to see if Louisville would offer a scholarship. Since the Cardinals have yet to offer, he decided not to wait any longer after making a recent unofficial visit to Kentucky when the Cats hosted Louisville.
