  • Bears win penalty-riddled game

    It wasn’t their best game of the year, but the Spencer County Bears played well enough to score a 30-14 win over the visiting Bethlehem Eagles Friday night.

    Sure, they racked up some impressive numbers, such as gaining almost 400 yards rushing for the evening, but it was the 12 penalties for well over 100 yards that has the coaching staff planning how to utilize the much-needed off week coming up.

    “You are always happy with a win, but we’re definitely not happy with the performance of our offensive unit,” said Head Coach Wes Napper after the game.

The Lady Bears travel to South Oldham tonight and will be at Bullitt East next Tuesday before returning home to host Henry County next Thursday.

  • Governor's Cup was a back and forth frenzy for fans

    The 15th Governor’s Cup made up in suspense and back-and-forth what it may have lacked in Southern Cal vs. Whoever hype.

    When the smoke cleared on a 31-27 Kentucky win, these things were clear.

    √ A wager on a two touchdown point spread in a rival match is a sucker bet.

    √ Scoreboard clicked up 58 points keeping 70,988 fans on the edge of their seats, and was a good alternative for a television audience bored with Alabama’s scrimmage against North Texas State, Ohio State-Toledo and Michigan-Eastern Michigan.

  • For their love of our county...

    With a slight tremor in his voice and perhaps some watering of the eyes, Steve Tichenor humbly accepted the praise bestowed on him and his family Saturday afternoon.

    “Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to see these kids out here playing soccer, baseball and softball. This park has grown into something greater than I ever dreamed it would be,” said Tichenor.

  • Columnist responds to Sabbath question

    Last week, in a letter to the editor, a respondent asked “Where in the Bible did Christ change the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first day?” This is a very good question because it is one that has been debated throughout the history of the church – should we worship on Saturday or Sunday? Unfortunately there is no clear cut answer to this question; however, there is enough textual information recorded in the Bible to make a strong argument.

    Both the girls and boys cross country teams brought home team honors after attending the Edmonson County Wildcat Invitational on September 19.

  • LETTER: In favor of single-payer health care

    I’m for a single-payer health care system.  Why?

    A single-payer health care system would ensure everyone had affordable insurance.  I would like to correct a lot of misinformation floating around about the single-payer system.  Some is politics and some is lack of knowledge.

    Misinformation – some are spreading lies that government programs are not efficient. 

  • Teacher: World lost a good kid

    Spencer County mourned the loss of 14-year-old Chaz Goodlett yesterday. Hundreds attended his funeral service at First Assembly of God in Taylorsville in honor of the high school student.

    His unexpected passing sent ripples through the school system this past week as students and teachers learned of Goodlett’s accident while visiting Nolin Lake September 11. He was flown by helicopter to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville after slipping off the back of a golf cart and suffering severe head trauma.
