  • State fire marshal reminds Kentuckians to ‘proceed with caution’ this Independence Day

     FRANKFORT – Kentuckians are encouraged to attend a community celebration this Fourth of July holiday.

    Kentucky State Fire Marshal Bill Swope advises families to let the professionals entertain you.

    “Setting off fireworks at home runs the risk of injury and may also run the risk of violating local ordinances and state law,” Swope said. “Citizens should be aware of potential prohibitions against celebrating with fireworks as local governments can set their own fireworks ban.”

  • Carolina rig perfect for post spawn bass

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – The calendar said June 1, but the cold northeast wind, chilly rain and leaden skies seemed more like a bad day on the opening weekend of the April Keeneland meet.

    June finally arrived in Kentucky this week and water temperatures in lakes across the state inched their way up toward the high 70s.

    “Black bass are in post spawn now,” said Jeff Ross, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “They should be completely done with spawning.”
