  • Bears beat Anderson 3-1

    Good pitching, clutch hitting and solid defense combined to give the Spencer County Bears an impressive 3-1 victory over visiting Anderson County last Thursday night.

    The Bearcats dented the plate in the first inning for a lone run but it could have been worse if not for a diving snag of a line drive in left field by Spencer County’s Cameron Smith that ended the inning with an Anderson runner stranded on third.

    In the third inning an unassisted double play by Bear 2nd baseman Timmy Riley ended another scoring threat by the Bearcats.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: I’m no Grace Hanadarko

    “They shot my friend,” cried one student as she craddled another laying in a dark pool of liquid. In the distance, shots rang out – and for a second, I think my heart actually stopped.

  • LETTER: People will always find a way to get alcohol
