  • White bass spawning runs just around the corner

    February days in the 60s make for crowded boat ramps and golf courses during a time of year usually spent indoors.

    Everything, nature wise, seems a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. Buds show on lilac bushes, green grass already grows in bunches and the sound of lawn mowers permeates an afternoon backyard barbecue.

    The rare winter temperatures may alter white bass spawning runs as well.

  • BBB warns to watch for ‘storm chasers’ who scam customers

    Spring and summer can bring severe weather leaving behind everything from hail-damaged roofs and siding to downed trees. Often, following the storms are thieves known as “storm chasers.”

    These scam artists present themselves as contractors able to fix the homeowners problems.

    They go town-to-town, door-to door, taking money for work, underperforming or not performing at all, and then move on to the next town often before the homeowners know they’ve been ripped-off.

  • Fishing licenses unlock opportunities

    The mild weather this winter has many thinking it will be an early spring across Kentucky.

    The earlier, the better for anglers, who by late February are like sprinters on their marks waiting for the starter’s pistol to fire.

    Some of the best fishing of the year is right around the corner. The new license year is, too. It starts March 1.

    For $20, an annual resident Kentucky fishing license serves as a ticket to good fishing opportunities, but also as an investment.
