  • Had it with snow

    Quick show of hands. Who’s had it with snow?

    Spencer County woke to yet another cold, white blanket Tuesday morning bringing this winter’s total accumulation to 19.9 inches – nearly the height of this 23-inch newspaper (including the margins). Since the New Year, four days have seen snow fall roughly three inches or more with February 9 leading the way with 6.5 inches. Monday’s storm will go down as the second highest with 3.9 inches – if residents are lucky.

  • Point guard play was "wonderful for teammates"

    John Wall meet Bob Cousy. Godfather of point guards who was defining take charge play and being The Game’s prime take-over-guy before Wall’s dad was out of diapers.

    Wall, Devan Downey and other gifted and cocksure playmakers would do well to look up the gold standard man. Point guard who pioneered the way to fame and fortune awaiting today’s take-over game types.

    A showman from Gotham City to Beantown, Cousy was cut from a high school team once and encouraged at Holy Cross College to minimize the fancy stuff.

  • Bears hit a rough patch in season

    It would take a pessimist of the first order to call the 2009-10 season anything but a success for the Spencer County Bears boys basketball team. But those who dwell on the negative can point to the past couple of weeks to make their argument as the Bears have dropped five of their last six games, including their last three.

  • Lady Bears drop close game to Henry

    The Spencer County Lady Bears aren’t sporting an impressive record, but they continue to battle through a tough season and on more than one occasion have come up just shy of notching a few more victories.

    Friday night was just another example as they fell in a 54-51 decision at home to Henry County.

    Spencer County built an early four point lead after one quarter, 12-8, but the two teams battled basket for basket the rest of the way. Henry County was able to cut into the lead and trailed by just one at the break, 21-20.
