  • Three pointers carry Bears to 72-56 victory

    On the strength of great three-point shooting, the Spencer County Bears took down Western Hills last Tuesday night before a large crowd at home, 72-52.

    The Bears opened up with a barrage of three-pointers, two by Jackson Cole, and one each by Jake Whitlock and Jacob Seawright as they raced out to a 12-0 lead early on. They extended that lead to 19-5 when Lucas drained a three-pointer and Western Hills seemed to be in a fog.

    They would right themselves and battle back, going on a 9-2 run at the end of the quarter to cut it to 21-14.

    As a child, the best part of Christmas morning typically was waking up, racing downstairs and standing with eyes wide open looking at all the toys and presents Santa left under the tree.

  • One Solitary Life

    Here is a man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in an obscure village. He worked in a carpenter shop until he was thirty, and then for three years he was an itinerant teacher.

    He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never owned a home. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never traveled, except in his infancy, more than two hundred miles from the place where he was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompanies greatness. He had no credentials but himself.
