  • A MATTER OF OPINION: What are they afraid of?

    The Kentucky Department of Education and a whole host of other taxpayer-funded education organizations are trying to influence a local court into allowing the Spencer County Board of Education to continue evaluating the superintendent’s performance in secret.

    Our superintendent who:

    • administers a yearly school budget of $20.7 million (comprised of local, state and federal tax monies);

    • is responsible for the education of 2,676 Spencer County children; and

  • All-American youth

    Spencer County’s Youth All-American selections Dalton Goodlett and Will Eldridge helped their 8th Grade Limited East Squad to an exciting 16-14 win last Saturday in San Antonio’s Alamodome.

    Both players were picked after completing Spencer County Middle’s championship season. They were drafted as running backs and defensive ends by Football University, but once there saw the team was short on linemen and both unselfishly agreed to move to those positions.

  • Never-give-up attitude gives boys a win, bringing record to 5-15

    Coach Jacob Barmore knew the wins would be few and far between this season, so picking up a road victory at Louisville Brown was enjoyable Saturday, but not unexpected.

    Barmore said there are a few teams on this year’s schedule that are comparable to Spencer County given the Bears’ inexperience and youth, and said those are the games his boys need to claim. On Saturday afternoon on a cold day and in a cold gym, the Bears did just that, even though they had to rally to do so.

  • Lady Bears slow out of gate in 51-37 win over Brown

    The Spencer County Lady Bears had a week off before returning to action Saturday afternoon in downtown Louisville against Brown. The gals looked a little rusty coming out of the gate, but were able to scrap out a 51-37 win.

    It was a sluggish beginning, but senior Kenisha Marshall was able to control the boards underneath, grabbing rebounds and scoring her team’s first eight points. Louisville Brown trailed 8-4 as the clock ticked down to end the quarter, but a Brown player heaved a 35-foot desperation shot that went in to keep the game tight at 8-7.
