LEXINGTON - Kentucky's plans to revive its offense before playing in a bowl game hit a major snafu Monday when coach Rich Brooks revealed that freshman quarterback-receiver Randall Cobb would have arthroscopic surgery today to repair cartilage in his left knee. Cobb injured his knee in Kentucky's 28-10 loss at Tennessee. He started his fourth game at quarterback before moving to receiver in the fourth quarter when former starter Mike Hartline came in at quarterback. Brooks said Cobb's status for the upcoming bowl game won't be known for several weeks.

June 26, 1983 The preventive heart surgery that Gov. John Y. Brown Jr. underwent during the weekend was considered radical as recently as the early 1970s, because Brown, who underwent triple bypass, did not actually suffer a heart attack. He underwent almost five hours of surgery on Sunday. Twenty-five Clark County youths will graduate from the Central Kentucky Vocational Technical School Wednesday. The graduation exercises, to be held at Memorial Hall on the University of Kentucky campus, will begin at 8 p.m. Kentucky Attorney General Steve Beshear will give the address.

Dear Editor, I worked for the Boyle County Health Department for 28 years and was honored to provide a service to our community. During my last few years of employment, I was totally put out with the "Stop smoking" campaign that Mr. Trent worked so hard on. I didn't appreciate anyone telling me what I could or not do. I didn't appreciate being made to feel like a second class citizen because I smoked. I didn't appreciate standing in the rain and snow or sitting in my car while I smoked.
