  • Warrior class (Capt.) Mike Casey battles on " and you can help

    Warrior class.

    It’s blue blood national image aside, the bricks and mortar that underpin University of Kentucky’s basketball success story for more than half century has been a rich mix of blue collar grit, tenacity, pride, stamina and courage.

    A warrior class.

    Jodie Meeks is one, and Patrick Patterson qualifies. Jeff Sheppard was, and Tayshaun Prince. Names fans today find familiar. In fact, they are the latest in a long line of warriors.

  • SCHS boys fall in district play to Shelby

    Taylorsville and Spencer County have been asked to play host to hundreds of cycling enthusiasts this summer during the USA Cycling 2009 Masters Road National Championship.

    Local leaders – who are eager to promote tourism in the area – see this event not only as a chance to showcase what the county has to offer, but their willingness to work with athletic event organizers.

  • Kentucky completes Vols sweep UofL’s Pitino keeps eye on prize

    Kentucky’s win against Tennessee was a notch down from gorgeous, but was pretty enough to earn the delight of Big Blue Nation. A 13-0 run from the get-go and an exclamation mark at the end.

    A Vols Sweep is UK’s season highlight so far.

    The Wildcats’ play was poised, patient and selfless (23 assists) and postgame buzz “... if only UK had a third scorer,” was made redundant (again) when the Committee had 20 points, 10 rebounds and and seven assists.

  • Marshall: An all-around performer

    Kenisha Marshall has been a target all season as opponents have tried just about every strategy to shut her down. Getting noticed by opposing coaches has resulted in double-teams and tight defenses, but it’s also resulted in Marshall being selected as an All 8th Region performer.

    Lady Bears Coach Daniel Cox announced Marshall’s honor this week as his squad is hoping to erase a less-than-stellar end to the season as they gear up to enter tournament play.

  • Bears head into post season

    It’s a new season for the Spencer County Bears tonight as they open up the 30th District tournament with a rematch with Shelby County in Lawrenceburg. But the Bears are reeling from a 6-21 regular season record and they enter postseason a little bruised and battered.

  • Charter suit continues with depositions

    Citizens who signed a petition to explore a merger between local governments weren’t intentionally misled –– or bribed –– two Spencer businessmen testified in sworn depositions Friday.   

    “I don’t know what people were told [by others],” testified Dwight Martin, a pro-merger advocate, who along with others circulated petitions to push a Charter referendum. “I know what I told them.”
