Last of the Big Three comes and goes
It’s hard to believe, but once again the traditional end of the summer tourism season has come and gone with last weekend’s Labor Day Holiday.
It seems to go faster every year, but this one seemed to fly by.
Our roadways will become less and less congested through the approaching fall and winter months, and we will also expect to see smaller crowds on both of our two lakes, Lake Cumberland and Dale Hollow.
This weekend’s upcoming Poker Run should bring some good crowds and nice boats to Lake Cumberland for one last busy weekend, but after that it’s all ours for a few months.
Locals will be able to take advantage of the smaller numbers on both lakes for a few weeks or even a couple of months in some cases, with favorable boating weather often continuing well into October.
Be safe, have fun, and get in a few final weeks of outdoor activity during some of the best weather months of the year.

High school sports will try again
With the return of students to classroom instruction after a brief hiatus last week due to a COVID-19 outbreak,   should come a return to high school sports.
Games and matches slated for Monday through Friday of last week were all canceled or postponed due to the closing of classes.
Schedules should return to normal this week.
We shall see how it goes.

Gridiron Dawgs to head to Columbia
Our football Dawgs will be looking for their first win this Friday night when they head to Adair County to take on the Indians.
Adair, a 3A program, will be coming off a narrow 23-20 loss at the hands of Wayne County this past Friday night.
Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m.
