Somewhere, appropriately enough, between Lexington and Louisville, off Interstate 64, south on Ky. 55, swinging through Ky. 1169 because the 55 turn is so confusing, and looking for a big 45-degree hook in the road, you find three houses in the bottomland and wonder, who is at war here? It is neither Wildcat nor Cardinal. No sign of either on the eve of the big football game. It’s the tiny community of Rivals, Ky. in Spencer County.

Super Saver with Calvin Borel up wins the 136th Kentucky Derby making it two in a row for Borel.
Between the metropoli of Olive Hill and Morehead, there is and always has been Globe. If you are the town’s main road (U.S.60) at early rush hour, it is three miles of constant traffic. If you are a side road off the main road, it is just-skedaddled deer and red bud-cluttered hollows. Eighty-eight-year-old Claude “Hawkeye” Erwin has spent a lifetime — save the time he spent on a Navy ship during World War II — on this mildly populated stretch of earth. It is earth he has hunted, earth he has dug, earth he inherited and earth he has bought and paid for. “This place has everything,” he says. It always has.
