FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME

Lukas Forbes is an athletics enthusiast. From his childhood to present day, his love for sports has been a major drive in all he does. Now, as a father, Lukas encourages his son Patrick, age 10, to strive for the same athletic excellence he once did. He coaches Patrick's Little League team, the Marlins, and wants to see his child succeed. As one of the youngest and smallest boys on the team, Patrick works hard to live up to his father's expectations.

SPELL IT OUT

Sarah Hall and Josiah Howlett played two competing middle school students in the WKU production of "Putnam County’s 25th Annual Spelling Bee." Thrown together from the first day of rehearsal, the senior and the freshman quickly became a team, the veteran mentored the rookie and their friendship off stage was as real as it was on.
