Oh, Kentucky

A couple of former Marshall County Marshals and rising juniors on Murray State's men's golf team have been dominating the in-state amateur circuit. Patrick Newcomb of Benton won the state am in Lexington two weeks ago. Hunter York of Hardin finished well off the pace in that tournament but came back in Mayfield this past weekend to clip Newcomb by one stroke in the West Kentucky Amateur.

The River Monsters are gone but not forgotten.

Just Ahround the corner.

Eat local.

For the record, when I visit the area, I would be inclined to both have taken a photo of myself with a fiberglass statue of Yogi Bear and see what's shaking at Horse Cave Theatre.

Still crazy after all these years.



  1. The KHSAA baseball tournament is underway in Lexington, and Warren East leads Letcher County Central, 1-0, in the first inning.

  2. In the fifth, Warren East adds a run to extend its lead to 3-1--but also leaves bases loaded. In the top of the sixth, Letcher County Central has scored once and now has men on second and third with one out ...

  3. Two out ... strike out on a bunt attempt ...

  4. Three out! Still 3-2, Raiders ... Blue Jays draftee Mark Biggs of Warren East has recorded nine strikeouts against one walk in allowing one unearned run through six innings of pitching. (Former Heath Pirate Chad Wright was also selected in the draft!)

  5. Warren East comes back strong in the bottom of the sixth, scoring three to take a 6-2 lead into top of last inning ...

  6. Owensboro Apollo has eliminated Mayfield. Mike Fields of The Herald-Leader points out that the Cardinals "ended the regular season 6-15, but got on a roll in the post-season and finished with a 10-17 record."
