  • It seems like super hero movies are a big deal these days. Superman, Spiderman, Batman, Iron Man and all the others fly off the big screen at us. Larger than life heroes, many with their own flaws, but each fighting the bad guys and defending folks just like you and me.
    Of course superheroes don’t really exist, and it is sort of sad what some people see as heroic. Let’s face it, a basketball player isn’t a hero, he’s just playing a game. And the latest movie sensation? She may be a great actress, but a hero?

  • The Spencer County Lady Bears snapped a seven game losing streak with a 71-51 victory over visiting Owen County last Monday night in Taylorsville.
    The Lady Bears played their most complete game of the season according to Coach David Marion, an assessment he said was backed up by stats. They shot a season-high 50 percent from the field and connected on six three-pointers. They hit 13-17 from the free throw line and Marion said he was most pleased with his squad committing only seven turnovers.
