  • La Grange designer wins logo...

    Michael Manning knew the logo for Louisville City Football Club, the area’s new pro soccer team, wasn’t professionally done when he first saw it.

    “I didn’t think it was that good, honestly,” Manning said.

    Manning, a New Albany, Ind., resident who works as a production specialist at Take Note Designs in La Grange, read about the contest on Twitter and entered.

    With rule changes made to college baseball in recent years, there’s become more of an emphasis on speed, defense and top-of-the-order hitting.

    Those changes fit right into Roman Millem’s game.

    Millem, a North Oldham rising senior shortstop, committed June 20 to play baseball at Butler University in Indianapolis. Bulldog coaches had offered Millem a scholarship in January, he said, and he decided last month to accept it.

    Now after its fourth Sprint Cup race, there remain questions about the track and its future.

    Kentucky hosted the fourth annual Quaker State 400 Saturday night and this time it avoided the problems that plagued the first three editions of the race.

    In 2011 inadequate parking led to an estimated 10,000 fans entirely missing the inauguarl race because they were instead stranded in traffic.
