Richard Hovious, Knifley ex-pat comments on Repeal

Comments re article 84141 Drives 20 miles to Knifley to buy 4 months supply of Heineken

Richard Hovious writes:
Ed: Is it true that you can now buy beer in Knifley? That would have caused massive unemployment in Knifley AND Lebanon a few years ago! - Richard Hovious, Knifleyan now living in Spain
I only have the reliable word of the Deputy Adair County ABC officer, and photographic evidence, and the indisputable report about Mr. Marshburn's trek. It appears that if any is imbibed, the purchasers will have to attend quaffing seminars. Word I get is that it is mostly for cooking purposes. That's what the old men who bought lemon extract in large quantities were do so - for baking. - EW

KY Afield Outdoors: Proper handling helps fish thrive

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - Summer is arguably the most popular time to fish as muggy, hot days push people to the water for relief and relaxation.

Many anglers, especially those who seek game fish such as black bass, trout or striped bass, release their catch.

"Catch and release works and is a good thing," said Dave Dreves, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "But, if you don't handle the fish properly, your good intentions can be reversed."
