    A motion from the Liberty-Casey County Economic Development Authority (EDA) in Chieftain Steel’s bankruptcy case in federal court was granted, to reschedule a hearing on a motion for relief from stay, while the EDA seeks another motion for relief to stay in a second Chieftain Steel bankruptcy case.

    A relief from stay would allow the EDA to attempt to collect payments on over $380,000 it loaned to Chieftain.

    Without the relief from stay, the EDA would have to wait to collect until the bankruptcy cases end.

    With the sting of the disappointing loss to Kansas State in the Sweet 16 beginning to wear off, the time comes for the big blue nation to look forward to next season and look to what kind of roster the cats will have. 

    With the deadline for a decision for the NBA draft not until May 1, there is still a month for things to change on decisions, but this is what I think we’ll see as far as players going or coming back for Kentucky’s roster next season.

    “The score remains close,” coach Marvetta Overstreet said. “I know that makes us vulnerable, but we’re growing in skills and confidence. We have lots to work on, but I see progress in this young team.”
