A handful of kids and parents milled about to the electronic gurgle of games inside Go Go Gorillas Fun Center around lunchtime Thursday, but the business has recently had to take steps to stave off creditors planning to repossess much of its entertainment and restaurant equipment. On Oct. 3, Boyle Circuit Judge Darren Peckler signed off on a writ of possession ordering the sheriff's office to seize dozens of tables and chairs and other restaurant items, along with the mini bowling alleys that are part of the center's entertainment package.

Dec. 29, 1984 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) ? Two football teams that overcame midseason slumps, Wisconsin and Kentucky, will meet in tonight's eighth annual Hall of Fame Bowl game before about 60,000 fans. With Kentucky representing the Southeastern Conference, most of the fans will be pulling for the Wildcats against Wisconsin of the Big Ten. The Pacers kept their undefeated season perfect Saturday with a 36-34 win over the Royals in Civitan Youth Basketball League play. The Pacers have now opened up a two-game lead in Division B over both the Rockets and the Celtics, who posted wins last week to make their records 3-2. The Knights of Columbus are sponsoring a free throw shooting contest Jan. 12 at 9 a.m. at St. Joseph Hall on South Main Street.

This bracket wasn't easy. However, based on this writer's crystal ball, which can get cloudy at times, Memphis, UCLA, Tennessee and Wisconsin will be in the Final Four in three weeks. The Volunteers will knockout overall top seed North Carolina in the East Region finals, while Wisconsin eliminates top-seeded Kansas in the Midwest Region championship. Memphis will have to get past Texas to win the South Region, while Xavier's run will end against the Bruins in the West finals.

Gatlinburg, Schmatlingburg. Destin can be your destination but not mine. I get a huge headache every time I travel those winding roads in the Great Smokies. One of my favorite vacation spots is not one of those well-publicized wonderlands most of you will be going to this summer. Mine is Wisconsin. Wisconsin? Beer, brats and big people? Well, Wisconsin has much more to offer. Lush forests. Beautiful lakes. Wonderful water parks. And relatively cool temperatures compared to the hazy, hot and humid summer days we usually experience in Kentucky.

I started commemorating April 20 as Good Friday/Bittersweet Friday back in 1984 when it was really Good Friday on the church calendar. It's what occurred on that day 23 years ago today that led me to call it Bittersweet Friday and observe it on April 20 every year since. This commemoration is all about one of my two older brothers, Tom. He had come down from his home in Wisconsin to Lexington to spend part of his spring break from his teaching job with my father, other brother and me. He had made this spring pilgrimage for several years, but this year it was particularly significant since our mother had died seven months earlier.
