Now and then I print some correspondence from readers, especially those that elevate my needs-to-be-fed ego, such as this one from Mark Keith Stone Jr. who, like many of us, has a dream of a cabin on the banks of a winding, gurgling steam.
ASHLAND The first half of the 64th District matchup between Boyd County and Rose Hill was sloppy to say the least with 24 combined turnovers between the two teams. The Lions led 41-25 at the break but Lions head coach Randy Anderson was not very pleased with his team’s effort.
ASHLAND If Ashland's shooting wasn't as sharp early on Monday night against Morgan County's zone defense as it might have hoped, the Kittens had a simple solution.
It isn’t quite accurate to say Carter County’s two high schools hate each other, not 365 days a year. But it’s safe to say, at the very least, East Carter and West Carter don’t get along all the time.
ASHLAND The weather Saturday afternoon was downright chilly but inside Charles Stewart Gymnasium at Rose Hill Christian, junior Fairview guard Jaxon Manning was burning up the nets.

SUMMIT It was a full-on arm-wrestling match between Boyd County and Lewis County over the first three quarters Tuesday night at Boyd County Middle School.

OLIVE HILL Rose Hill Christian had three players in the 16th Region All "A" Classic semifinals on Monday night that it didn't have six days earlier against Raceland.
ASHLAND Johnson Central coach Tommy McKenzie might have been scoping out the nearest exit after watching his Golden Eagles fall behind to Ashland 13-0 in the first two minutes Monday night.
RACELAND Teams are used to adapting to different situations on and off the court this season. Raceland opponents have to keep adjusting on the defensive end when guarding Kierston Smith.
