Brett Guthrie is a relative newcomer to these parts, so the Bowling Green Republican had a fresh audience Thursday at the Danville Country Club for his “Why I ran for Congress” story. He credited wild child actress Lindsay Lohan. Guthrie said he was in China on a business trip in 2007 as the country was preparing for the upcoming Summer Olympics. He counted 30 cranes at work in Shanghai as his host told him of China’s plans to claim its destiny as the center of the world’s trade and culture. Arriving back in America after that trip, Guthrie was anxious to catch up on the latest news. He turned on Fox News to find a panel discussion of Lohan’s most recent DUI arrest. He switched to CNN to find the same thing. Over at MSNBC, more Lohan. “I said to myself, if this is what we are focused on, China is going to be No. 1,” Guthrie told those gathered for the Danville-Boyle County Chamber of Commerce’s Public Policy Series luncheon. Guthrie, a West Point and Yale University graduate, was elected to Congress from Kentucky’s 2nd District in 2008 after serving in the state Senate for 10 years. When Kentucky rejiggered its congressional districts earlier this year, the 2nd As the 2012 vice-presidential debate at Centre College approaches, a variety of initiatives have begun. One particular project — a middle-grade novel inspired by the 2000 vice-presidential debate at Centre — has several connections to the college besides the setting. “Thrill in the ’Ville” was written by Patsi B. Trollinger, former Centre coordinator of public information, and illustrated by Elizabeth SO YOU KNOW Thompson, Class of 2011. “Thrill in the ’Ville,” a The book, middle-grade novel written narrated by by Patsi B.

It required very long hours, but despite inconveniences to my family, my twin daughters, who were in sixth grade, didn’t complain,” Trollinger says. “I was already thinking about children’s books, and knew I wanted a career change in that direction, and this character started talking to me. He told me that if he were my kid, he would be complaining about all the inconveniences in his life. He was very entertaining. After I left Centre, I began writing down his story, and it turned into LOUISVILLE — Something about NCAA Tournament play just brings out the best in Terrence Jones. When Kentucky lost to Connecticut at the Final Four to end its 2010-11 season, Jones had 11 points and 15 rebounds. When Kentucky got to return to NCAA play ursday, Jones went right back to work and had 22 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in an 81-66 victory over Western Kentucky University. “We are a lot better when he plays like that,” said Kentucky senior Darius Miller. “He could have been doing that all season, but he just did not take it upon himself to dominate because we had other players doing things. But he can play like that all the time. He’s just doesn’t always feel that he has to. “But he’s a huge part of this team, and when he dominates, we are normally at our best. His plays get us going. He knows a big dunk or drive or shot gets us going and gets us all excited. We are just a lot better when he’s like that.” Jones had not had a 20-point scoring game since getting 27 against Louisiana State University on Jan. 28. However, he’s now scored in double figures in the last five games and nine of Clay Jackson/cjackson@amnews.com See JONES, on A8 Kentucky Wildcats forward Terrence Jones (3) gets past Western Kentucky Hilltoppers guard Jamal Crook (14) in the first half.
