  • Fairdale hands Bears first loss

     

    The Spencer County Bears suffered their first defeat of the season with a 7-2 loss to visiting Fairdale last Tuesday evening.

  • Walk-off homer gives girls a win

     

    A walk-off homerun by Freshman Emily Cole lifted the Spencer County Bears to a thrilling 3-2 victory over Oldham County on Wednesday. The Lady Colonels were ranked 29th in the Kentucky coaches poll, one of several ranked teams on the Lady Bears schedule.

  • Ulis surprises many with rise in draft potential

     

    Sporting News columnist Mike DeCourcy always believed that Tyler Ulis would be a successful college basketball player and was one of the few who did not question why Kentucky coach John Calipari signed the 5-9 point guard out of Chicago two years ago.

    However, even DeCourcy didn’t expect Ulis to become Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, SEC Defensive Player of the Year and consensus All-American in his second season at UK and a likely first-round draft pick in June.

  • Up a creek without a paddle? Trust God

    When I was a teenager, I went on a canoeing trip with a church youth group. For some reason the youth leader trusted my friend James and me to be the first ones down the river. He must have thought we were pretty responsible because he placed his young son in the canoe with us.

    I don’t know if we were responsible or not, but we sure weren’t experienced.

  • Holy Cow! Realizing the power behind our words

    As an amateur wordsmith, I am fascinated with words and phrases. I love my cell phone because I have a dictionary and thesaurus all ready for my personal touch and I can research any word or phrase I hear.

    You can tell a lot about a person by the words and phrases they use. Of course, most use words and phrases they have no idea what they mean. Perhaps they heard somebody else say these words or phrases and so they incorporated them into their vocabulary, which, says more about them than anything else.
