Hunting State Tradition m Kentucky is as r ham, bluegrass :ky Derby. Many hunters look forward to shoots, which have become annual affairs where friends and family re-unite as much for fellowship as for hunting. Those who are not a part of these traditional hunts (or those who wish to expand their dove-hunting op- portunities) can still find some ex- cellent hunting, particularly since more areas than ever are now sup- porting feeding places for doves. sbury, left, and his son, Paul, display the string of 13 bass caught at Barkley Lake.

Corporation Box 1389 - 3111 Fairview Dr., Owensboro, Ky. Stadium. To locate fields where these birds have gathered in large numbers to feed on corn, silage or other small grains, check telephone and power lines for resting doves. Generally, their feeding area will be nearby. Or, if the hunter notices that doves seem to be flying in one direction,, tle cn follow them to where they are feeding. Once the feeding area has been located, ask the landowner for premission to hunt on his land. Many hunters scout an area before the opening date, so they will have a good idea of where to go during the season (Sept. 1 through Oct. 31 and from Dec. 1 through Dec. 9). Hunting hours are from 12 noon until one-half hour before sunset, prevailing time. Hunters may take 12 doves per day and are allowed to transport up to 24 birds after two or more days of hunting, but remembe/" that only 12 may be possessed at any time in the field. New-comers to dove hunting should know that shotguns with cylinder or modified barrels and light loads of number 7 t'2 or 8 shot are the most effective during the early part of the season. However, as the doves become more wary, a fool choke barrel and high brass shells with 61:z or 7 shot will be needed for the longer shots encountered afterthe first week or so of the season. On Time By Cliff Hagan The UK Athletics Board of Direc- tors met last week and was delighted to hear from our local consulting architects that our brand spanking new Commonwealth Stadium is on schedule and will be ready for VPI on Saturday, September 15. Separate contracts on streets and roads will insure us of speedy access. Two of our four new large parking lots will be hard surfaced and a huge grassy area fronting Nicholasville Road adjacent to the stadium can handle the overflow. Although our first night game at home is not until Oct. 13 against North Carolina, lighting for the playing field and parking lights are reaching skyward. To day, 99 percent of the precast concrete erection is finished and we look like a stadium of 50,000 seats. The south bleachers will be moved from Stoll Field immediately with the north end bleachers at a later date. Of course, one day we hope to see the need to connect the sides, swelling our capacity to 68,000. About85 percent of our aluminum seats are in place at this time. The Press Box is two-thirds com- plete, only waiting for glass to finalize it. Two elevators to serve this area are being installed. Restroom fixtures will be installed next week in the entire stadium. Instead of just one scoreboard, we will have two. By game time there will still be some minor things in- complete but the really good news is that the playing field of Com- monwealth Stadium is now com- pletely carpeted with luscious thick bluegrass where any thoroughbred would be proud to winter. Meanwhile, Fran Curci and his staff have been hard at work getting ready for opening fall practice Agu. 21. The players will report on Sunday, Aug. 19, and trot out in full uniforms for the press-radio-TV corps at 10 a.m. Monday. ,.., During, the elatire mer,.Curci:s staff has kept in close contact with all players, with regular condition reports and other such data received weekly in the mail. Most of the boys are about ready to wrap up summer jobs and are eager to report to foot- ball camp. Giants Win The Beaver Dam Little League all- star team defeated Greenville 13-5 in the opening round of the Central City Invitational tournament and will advance to the finals of the meet Thursday. David Moss picked up the pitching win and also helped out in the of- fensive department with a home run. Moss, however, weakened in the fourth and was relieved by Ricky Embry. Embry entered the contest with the bases loaded and struck out the side. He went the rest of the way and allowed only one run. Mark Brackett also had a homer for Beaver Dam. 00TI:00RD HOW FISHERMEN CATCH PEOPLE =3 -- Safety Do's end Don'ts When your lure hangs up on a snag, don't try to jerk it loose with a violent bending of your rod. A bent rod can trigger a suddenly loosened bait so fast you won't have lime to duck. When lure is snagged, keep your cool. With ample slack in your line, try first to gently shake it loose, if this fails, row in and release it by hand. Remember too, lures should never lie around loose in the boat. Many a lure left carelessly on a boat seat has caused painful and embarrassing incidents. -'W00',411 THE OHIO COUNTY TIMES, HARTFORD. KENTUCKY, AULiU:I z, ]/,, vaut: J -- ,P -OP ,OP -1P ,J- -P ,OP Cbride I on sports O Never have I enjoyed a sporting event more than last weekend's Ohio County Invitational golf tournament. It was a fun time long to be remembered by myself and the 90- plus others who participated in the second annual event. For fear of omitting a name we will not attempt to give individual credit to the many dedicated people who worked day and night to make the tournament a rousing success. I have played in only one other tournament but have observed many. None has had the warmth and spirit exhibited last Saturday and Sunday at the Ohio County Country Club. Lacy Blackburn, chairman, and his army of helpers thoroughly suc- ceeded in placing Ohio County on this area's golfing map. There is little doubt hectic moments cropped up during preparations for the meet but the final production went off like a well-oiled machine. All of this is incredible in light of the fact that the club does not have a pro to oversee the care of the course. That care is provided by the club's members free of charge. Several members worked late into the night Friday to insure the greens would be in the best shape possible for the start of play on Saturday. Indeed, the greens were in good shape, as were the tees and fairways. Also, we heard no complaints about having to wait on the tees or about being pushed or held up on the fair- ways. The name of the game was organization. Congratulations gang and we'll be looking forward to the same good time next year. And while on the subject of golf... Bob Higdon was out inspecting the country club pool during his reign as president last year when our good friend A.R. Himes happened by. The two discussed the pool for a few minutes and the conversation then turned to golf. "Say, Bob," Himmie asked, "would you mind showing me how to swing a golf club?" Being an obiliging fellow, Bob agreed and immediately produced a seven iron. The pair went to the nearest tee and Bob ventured into his first golf-teaching session. He showed Himmie how to address the ball, how to hold the club and the proper way to swing. Feeling the surge of teaching success Bob handed the club to Himmie and stood back while A.R. tried his "inexperienced" hand at golf. Himmie stepped over the ball, took a mighty swing and the sphere dribbled a few feet off the side. Bob provided a few more in- structions and Himmie again took the club. This time he sent the ball long and straight down the middle of the fairway. He sent the several more balls straight down the fairway. Bob was elated. "Gee whiz," he thought, "here I can barely play the game myself and I've succeeded in teaching another to hit the ball." Later the same day Himmie's wife was in Bob's super market and ran into the golfing instructor. "You know," he told her, "I gave your husband a few golfing hints this morning and I believe that with a little practice Himmie could play a fair game" It was then that lightning struck. Mrs. Himes promptly informed Bob that her "non-golfing" husband used to play everyday when they lived in California. In fact, Himmie played regularly with a one Bill Hoss who later turned pro. Also, A.R. was a member of the Benita Valley Country Club at Chulavista, California and carried a three handicap. That ain't bad in anybody's league. Not long ago Himmie got Hartford Mayor Charles Ellis backed up in Casebier's Restaurant and the con- versation again drifted to golf. The mayor has only been playing the game a relatively short time. "Tell you what I'll do, " Himmie suggested, "I'il bet I can hit the ball father than you and I've never played the game." Charlie declined the challenge and it just might be the wisest decision he ever made. I'm ashamed 8f ymi, Himmie.
