  • From our readers - Trump not fit for presidency

    The last election was the most ridiculous election I’ve ever participated in.  The people elected the most unqualified and disgusting person in the history of the country for president.  He trash talked minorities, said because he is a celebrity it is alright for him to fondle women, mocked the disabled, etc., etc.

  • From our readers - Court handled legal fee reimbursement issue improperly

    I attended the Fiscal Court meeting on January 17, and was disappointed with the court’s decision to pay for Judge Riley’s legal fees accrued by the attorney he hired.  I listened to the reasoning presented by the judge and members of the court, but disagree with the decision to pay for outside council.  I believe our county attorney is capable of handling this case on his own.

  • Bears stop Gallatin, 72-66


    The Spencer County Bears defeated Gallatin County, 72-66, Saturday afternoon in a game held at Henry County, a place the Bears would like to return to later next month as it is the traditional host of the boys 8th region tournament.

    The Bears and Wildcats battled early on with the two teams trading the lead for much of the first quarter before Spencer County’s Sam Conley scored six straight points on a drive and a foul, and then a three-pointer to put the Bears up 11-8.

  • Can you find the keys?

    Did you ever notice that we all have an autopilot?  We get in our little routines and never even think about them.  For example, getting up in the morning, I bet you have a pretty set routine.  Mine is to sit on the side of the bed for a minute and wish I could go back to sleep (I am NOT a morning person), then off to the bathroom to brush my teeth and shave.

    It’s often said these are the good old days for deer hunting in Kentucky, but for those of a certain age, or new to hunting, it’s all they have ever known.

    The world was tip-toeing into a new millennium the last time Kentucky’s deer harvest did not break 100,000 for a season. The 2016-17 season cleared that mark and surpassed 130,000 for the fifth consecutive season.
