It has been busy the last week and I am way behind in reporting in. Here are a few notes from the past week.
Tennessee's Bruce Pearl Speaks in Hopkinsville
University of Tennessee Head Basketball Coach Bruce Pearl was the guest speaker at University Heights Academy for their basketball banquet. Word has it that Pearl provided a relaxed and amusing time for the crowd. UT signee Scotty Hopson made a few remarks I'm told, that did not sit well with the UK fans.
Louisville Football and Greg Nord
Greg Nord, long-time assistant coach for the University of Louisville was in West Kentucky Monday and Tuesday recruiting. I had the opportunity to visit with Coach Nord Monday afternoon at the Hopkinsville/Christian County baseball game. Greg is visiting with coaches at Hopkinsville, Christian Co, Paducah, Fort Campbell and Mayfield regarding future prospects. Nord said he felt good about Louisville's 2008 team and look forward to their continued success.
State Senate Race
The Democrat Primary heated up Friday with Rick Johnson going negative in his media against Carroll Hubbard. Race should get interesting the next few days.
U.S. Senate Race
U.S. Senate race has still not generated much interest in Western Kentucky. Fischer has come on some but I'm not sure it will be enough to overcome the money and media.
