    I don't think Phil gets any real heat or punishment for what he did. I think you might see the rule get addressed and changed sometime soon. What he did goes against the spirit of the game, but in the grand scheme of things, it's not that big of a deal. It didn't affect the outcome of the tourney, and will leave the mind of the public pretty quickly. Phil will remain a popular draw, and let's be honest, his time has really just about passed....

    I could be wrong, but it looks like all but one (Rite Aid)of these are small, privately owned pharmacies. Probably one or two in every small town in the county, none of which likely do big volume. In most larger, more populated areas, these small pharmacies have been pushed out by the national brands. I'm guessing that's why there are so many for such a small population.

    Song ringtones, for whatever reason, annoy me whenever I hear them on someone else’s phone. My phone stays on silent most of the time as I’m in meetings much of the day. When I do have my ringer on, I use one of the basic default rings already loaded in the phone. Even when my ringer is on, it’s always turned down to at least half volume. Loud ring tones (regardless of what it is) also bother me. I guess this is one of my few “crabby old...

    I don't mind watching the pros struggle on the golf course. But the US Open, is often ridiculous. When the course is tricked up this much, and good shots turn into bad shots so regularly, it's not about how good your are, but how lucky you are.

    Phil missed a putt, and rather than let run off the green, he ran it down and hit it back toward the hole while it was still moving. I’ll admit, I’ve done this before.....but I’m not a pro golfer playing in front of millions at this country’s biggest tournament.

    How on earth does almost every other state manage to classify baseball when apparently, according to us, it’s so difficult to do?

    Been preparing weeks for my youngest sons graduation party today. Wrapping up some last minute errands after taking care of a mile long honey-do list to get the house and yard ready. Time for a quick nap before everyone starts arriving.

    I mulch from day one. The only times I don’t mulch is if for some reason the grass has gotten really high or is really wet. My new mower has a feature where I can either mulch everything, or I can set the mower up to partially bag and partially mulch. I haven’t used it yet, but I’ve read where it works well.

    So we only ban certain information. Just the stuff that might be more dangerous to the public, because of the handful of people that might draw inspiration from it or use it incorrectly. Even if it interferes a little with our basic rights.

    I’d be shocked if it were a full ride. My guess is he was getting the customary 1/4-1/2 ride with much of the rest filled in with academic or other scholarship money. Michigan ain’t cheap for an out of stater, so he was likely close to zero cost.

    Well, the only way to test it is to restrict the press for say the next 10 years to test the theory. Are you willing to give up the basic right of freedom of the press for the next decade or so or maybe forever? It just shocks me to hear people who fight so hard and feel so strongly about certain rights, to be so willing to give up other basic rights to “protect society. Isn’t that ironic??

    Can you imagine the conspiracy theories, rumors and misinformation that would come out of these events if we left basic info like that out of the reporting? The American public is too smart, and too thirsty for information. If the media didn’t put it out there, someone else would, and who knows how accurate it would be. The only way to control the information is to release it all. The assumption here is that the stories inspire others to do...

    The black mites have been a recent thing. I've been gardening here in NKY since 2001, and eggplant did well for the first 10 years or so. Then the black mites showed up, and the only success I've had is growing eggplant on my deck in containers. I decided to try doing them in the garden again after a few years on the deck, and taking last year off. Sure enough, the mites are back, and the eggplant are doing terrible. It's funny, those mites...

    I've scaled back this year. Just 15 tomato plants, Jalapeno, Bell, and Sweet pepper plants,3 eggplants, and some zucchini. I've decided it's just not worth my time and effort to grow green beans, corn, winter squash etc. All are doing well, except the eggplant. I always get these black mites, and I didn't spray with Sevin soon enough, and there's not much left to them. Hopefully they'll come back.

    Agreed. Not that Marshall County is bad, but there are many better basketball situations than Marshall County. Think about it, he’s already played on a state championship team. If it was all about basketball, he would have stayed at BG.

    Absolutely. And the censoring of information from the media is a pretty slippery slope. We clamor for less of big brother, yet here we are asking someone else to decide what should and shouldn’t be shown regarding news stories.

    So you should stay in a job, that for whatever reason, isn’t working out for you? Especially if you have an opportunity to improve some aspect of your life in changing jobs? Sorry, adults change jobs all the time (I’ve done it myself several times), and using this analogy as a reason why kids shouldn’t transfer doesn’t work.

    If I had the answer as to what causes these events, believe me, I would have shared it by now. My comment about video games is simply based in logic (at least what in my sometimes convuluted mind seems logical). Violent events have occurred throughout time, many of which have been large scale genocide involving countless thousands of lives. For Pete's sake, we used to draw and quarter people who committed minor crimes. As a society we have...

    Considering almost every kid born since roughly 1970 (including myself, my friends and my children) has grown up with video games, it wouldn't be a surprise if this kid did as well. But shooting zombies, playing war games, and trying to win a championship in Madden or NBA live isn't what's causing these events. If it were, we'd have tens of millions of people from the ages of 8 to 50 years old committing these crimes daily.

    A good percentage of the people that do these crimes end up dead at the scene. I'm not sure the death penalty has ever prevented any crime. If you're at that point in the process deciding if a mass shooting is what you need to do, I don't think the fear of the death penalty is going to be the deciding factor as to whether you end up doing it or not. I'm not saying they shouldn't be punished harshly. But I don't think the punishment even...

    I completely agree. If this had worked out everyone would have applauded and it would have been a great story. As it, it didn't work out, and really, I don't think it's Newport that looks bad. The only one that looks bad in this situation is Schmitz.

    If you get drafted in the top 5 rounds or so, you almost have to go pro. There's not a ton of room to improve your draft position, and anything can happen in the 3 years you have to wait before you're elgible to be drafted again. Live the dream. College will still be there if it doesn't work out.

    True. I have to think though that A's believe he is signable....that's a high pick to waste. However, he could sign and still play football in the fall. And everything I've seen and read, seems to indicate he will be playing QB for the Sooners this year.

    A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush. 9th overall is big money. Plus there are several cases of guys who gave baseball a shot, and then later came back to football, notably Russell Wilson. You never know what might happen on the football field, where fluke serious injuries can happen (though this can happen in baseball too.)

    Actually, I would have no issue with doing exactly what you say. Like I said before, I've lived, played and coached in other states and our whole district/region/state format is an anomaly. And it insures that in every year, and in every sport (except football and most of the individual sports) that some really good teams stay home, and some average teams get to play for a state title simply because of geography.
