    Big Blue Nation Week at the Daviess County Public Library

    By: Christy V. Temple

    Are you experiencing the blues this week? Do you feel as though it’s already been way too long since the smell of sweat and hardwood, squeaking shoes, and blue and white all over the television screen? If so, you’re in luck because the Daviess County Public Library is having two great programs this week to help alleviate those darn blues.

    Actually, the blues we are referring to here at the library are two fantastic programs occurring two nights this week. The first one is on Tuesday, September 29th, from 6 to 7 p.m. and the program is entitled: “An Evening with Coach Rupp,” portrayed by Dr. Edward Smith. Dr. Smith will portray Coach Rupp as he talks in detail about his life and times as one of the most well-known basketball coaches in the history of the sport and the hard work and dedication that it takes to build a championship basketball team.

    The second program is on Thursday, October 1, 2015 from 6 to 7 p.m. and is entitled: “Sinister Influences: UK’s Fabulous Five and the 1951 Point Shaving Scandal.” Ronald Elliott will be here leading this program as he has written a book about this event in Kentucky basketball history. It was said that several players were arrested in this scandal and before it was over that almost 30 players were implicated from eight different schools. This was not a positive time in the history of UK basketball but the school managed to overcome nonetheless and become the mighty powerhouse it is today.

    Therefore, please join us this week for these two wonderful programs surrounding the history of University of Kentucky basketball in the magazine area on the first floor of the Daviess County Public Library from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evening. You can gain a new perspective and tell others the next time that you have the blues that it means something totally different. The blues in this case reflect a sense of pride and passion for a basketball team that not only the state but the entire nation cheers for when that wonderful, winter basketball season starts again.
