Tracing Ramsey's journey en route to UK QB

Derrick Ramsey’s journey to becoming the first African-American quarterback at Kentucky was not an easy one but it eventually led him to being a Super Bowl champion, college athletics director and even Kentucky government cabinet secretary.

Ramsey shares his story — and the values his parents instilled in him — in his new book: "They Call Me “Mr. Secretary” with Dr. John Huang.

Ramsey grew up in Hastings, Fla., and says he “owes everything to my parents” who taught him that coming from humble beginnings did not negate a path to future success. 

“My mom got pregnant at age 15 but my parents were together for 56 years until my mom passed away,” Ramsey said. “My father always had great advice for me. I still remember him telling me that ‘you either get to the table or whatever scraps fall off is what you get.’”

Ramey learned that if he could “get to the table” he could be part of the decision-making process.

“I never forgot those words. All my life, I’ve been trying to get to the table,” Ramsey said.

Ramsey left his home in Florida to play his final two high school seasons in Camden, N.J., before coming to Kentucky to play for coach Fran Curci. He led Kentucky to its first bowl bid in 25 years in 1976 and then in 1977 the Cats were unbeaten in SEC play and won 10 games — something UK didn’t do again for 41 years.

At Kentucky he ran 446 times for 1,764 yards and 25 touchdowns and completed 130 of 273 passes for 1,653 yards and 14 scores.  He went on to play tight end in 122 NFL games in 10 seasons with Oakland, New England and Detroit with 38 starts. He caught 188 passes for 2,364 yards and — 12.6

Merry Christmas: Follow Santa Here

Follow Santa's Travels
The Crittenden Press full edition will not be published on the last week of 2023 as we have closed for the holidays. 

We wish everyone a blessed and special Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Meanwhile, we pray for a childlike holiday season for all and in that spirt you can find at this SANTA NORAD LINK a satellite tracker of Santa's movements on Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning. 

This week in-person deadline for voter party changes

Voters have already started to look ahead at the 2024 election that includes President of the United States.

Though Kentucky's primary is not until May 21, 2024, those wishing to change their party affiliation need to do so by Dec. 31 in order to vote in the spring election. Anyone switching parties after that date will be ineligible to vote in May.

Changing political parties is easy. It can be done online 24/7 at or in the county clerk's office during regular business hours.

However, in-person updates to voter registrations must be done before the close of business on Thursday, Dec. 28 due to New Year holiday closing.

On the ballot next year are partisan races for circuit clerk, Commonwealth's attorney, statehouse legislative seats, Congress and, of course, President.

Beware of holiday season scams

Christmas is coming, but so are fraudsters. As Kentuckians prepare for the holiday season, the Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) wants to alert citizens about an increase in securities-related scams. Consumers are advised to be vigilant when thinking about investing or moving investments around, especially around the holidays and into the new year when bad actors take advantage of generous, holly spirits.

“We have seen an increase in reports from Kentucky consumers of both advance payment scams and high-yield investment program scams,” said Chad Harlan, assistant director of DFI’s securities division. “The best way to protect yourself and your money is to do your homework before investing. In many cases, your money cannot be returned after the fact. This is why it’s important to thoroughly

Is Reed Sheppard an NBA first-rounder?

The Reed Sheppard bandwagon has certainly filled up since Kentucky’s season started to the point where the UK freshman is now being projected as a potential first-round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft.

However, one national analyst who was on the Sheppard bandwagon even before UK played three games in Canada in July was Krysten Peek, a writer for YahooSports and Rivals.

She watched Sheppard play in the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass., in January and not only liked what she saw on the court but what she heard from him off the court.

“I was telling him he had a fantastic game (13 points, 13 rebounds, three blocks and two steals) and was doing what he’s doing at Kentucky now,” said Peek. “I asked him about joining the ranks of some of the nation’s best players (D.J. Wagner, Rob Dillingham, Justin Edwards) in his class in a Kentucky backcourt and how he would fit.

“I won’t forget what he told me. He said, ‘I will do whatever I am asked to do. If I need to dish out assists, hit 3-pointers, grab water during timeouts … I will do whatever as long as we win.’

“Some kids say what they think you want to hear in an interview but you could tell this  kid believes in his soul in doing what it takes to win and if that was getting water, he would get water. I knew then he was a winner and would be just fine at Kentucky. I actually thought then he could be the most

Part of KY could see wintry weather Monday

GO TO for weather resources | snow maps | highway updates

Kentuckians are encouraged to stay weather-aware and practice safe driving behaviors as part of the state braces for winter weather late Monday morning through evening that may impact travel.   

"Kentuckians please be weather aware today," said Gov. Andy Beshear."We need all our families to stay safe on the roadways as snow showers and gusty winds could bring dangerous conditions.”

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for portions of central Kentucky and predicts the combination of falling temperatures, 25-30 mph winds, and brief bursts of snow will create poor driving conditions, especially when temperatures drop below freezing. Snowfall accumulations are predicted to be light and measurable snow is possible along and east of Interstate 75 in the afternoon.

5-Star UK recruit believes in Cal's staff

Five-star center Jayden Quaintance is a top 10 player nationally but that has not been a surprise for his father, Haminn Quaintance.

“I always knew my son would be a very good basketball player,” said Haminn, a former college and professional basketball player. “I started working with him when he was about 7 years old, or maybe younger. 

“This is not all about how good you are. How do you pick things up? How is your work ethic, self discipline? A lot of things determine how good you will be. At a young age not everybody wants to do it. If it was just me pushing him to play basketball, it would not matter but he wanted to do it and that’s why he got better.”

The 6-10, 250-pound Quaintance signed with Kentucky last month. He’s only 16 years old and will not be eligible for the NBA draft until after graduates from Word of God Christian Academy (N.C.) in the spring.

Picking Kentucky was not a hard choice for Jayden Quaintance.

“It was the Big Blue Nation and all that good stuff,” Haminn said. “There is a huge spotlight that comes with being at Kentucky when you are doing well. But more than anything it was the coaching staff. You have to believe in the coaching staff. We also know we have got to do our work and if we do that then the coaches are going to put us in the best situation. They know what needs to be done.”

Haminn played two years at Jacksonville State and two years at Kent State. He started 104 games in four years, including 35 in 2007-08 at Kent State. He was a 54.5 percent (1,048 of 1,922) shooter from the field and averaged 11.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.8 steals per game during his career.

“I played against Duke (2010) and North Carolina (2009) the year they both won a national championship,” Haminn, who went on to play professionally overseas, said. “I was pretty athletic I

Reward offered for suspect's arrest

Mitchell Peek
Crittenden County authorities are seeking the public’s help in locating Mitchell Peek, 36, of Marion who is wanted on an indictment warrant from Crittenden County and two warrants out of Lyon County. 

Peek eluded apprehension Friday night following a police chase through two counties that was initiated before 10 p.m., by Sheriff Evan Head on US 60 just east of Moore Hill. Peek was operating a motorcycle and had a female passenger. 

The sheriff attempted to make a traffic stop when Peek was observed allegedly operating the motorcycle in a reckless fashion. The bike sped away and turned onto KY 1668, then westbound onto KY 135. The chase, which never exceeded 55 mph on a foggy night, went through Tolu and into Carrsville in Livingston County before Peek crashed. He fled on foot, but the female was taken into custody.

Peek is believed to be at large in Crittenden, Lyon or Livingston counties. 

Peek is wanted in Crittenden County in connection to a case involving Brian Fitzgerald, who is now in custody and facing a federal indictment. During the Fitzgerald investigation, authorities say evidence was ascertained indicating that Peek was in possession of a handgun (as a convicted felon) and possession of drug paraphernalia. The Crittenden County Grand Jury handed down an indictment against Peek last month in those accusations.

In Lyon County, he’s wanted for various alleged crimes, including fleeing or evading police, possession of methamphetamine, probation violation, tampering with physical evidence and wanton endangerment. 

Peek is described as a white male, 6-foot tall and weighting 210 pounds.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call 270-965-3500. 

The female passenger on the motorcycle, Christina Robison, 30, of Marion was cited for possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. She refused treatment follow the crash.

A reward for information leading to his capture is being offered Crittenden County TipLine.
