    Vaunted rushing attack has all but vanished

    The past couple of seasons, it’s not been uncommon to see lopsided scores in the fourth quarter of Spencer County High School football games. However, until this season, the bowed and dejected heads are usually on the other sideline.
    On Thursday night, it was the Bears who seemed demoralized during a 56-8 loss at home to rival Bullitt East. That’s just one week after a 38-13 loss to Bullitt Central.

  • School board hikes tax

    When the Spencer County Board of Education approved a tax hike last year, they said they were approaching a line they would not cross, with Superintendent Chuck Adams suggesting that 65 cents per $100 was the limit. Last Thursday night, the board voted in a tax increase that slightly crossed that line at 65.2 cents.
