  • Soccer: Girls tie, boys lose

    The Spencer County boys and girls soccer teams will get a bit of a break this week after completing the first part of their schedules Tuesday.

    The girls have comprised a record of two wins, no losses and one tie following a see-saw affair at home against Western Hills Thursday that ended in a stalemate.

    Western Hills struck first with a goal at the 15:47 mark to take a 1-0 lead, which is where the score stood at the half.

    In the second half, senior Shelby Pfeiffer got the Lady Bears on the board with a goal of her own, to knott the score at 1-1.

  • PHOTOS: A lot of fuss over an extra "S"

    The start of school can be confusing, especially when traffic patterns are changed. But the Spencer County School District’s attempt to clarify directions for parents driving their kids to school only created chaos when buzz began over the sign at the middle school.

    Director of Operations Brett Beaverson said he intentionally spelled the plural word for bus two ways because that is how it is listed in the dictionary. Don’t believe it? Look it up yourself.

  • Student gains more than knowledge in Georgia

    War stories from the country of Georgia may have been moved from the front pages, but memories of the friends Katie Hesselbrock made this summer are still first in her thoughts each morning.

  • Bears flat against Cougars

    The Spencer County Bears will kickoff the 2008 season this Friday night when they play host to Bullitt Central at 7:30. It will be an opportunity to not only avenge a loss from last season, but to make up for a lackluster performance in their final preseason scrimmage last week.

    If the Bears are to get their season off on the right track, they’ll need to hit the field fired up against the Cougars, something that was not evident when they hosted Montgomery county for a scrimmage last Friday.

    Several Spencer County School Board members have expressed concern with staying on track as a board and spending taxpayer dollars to appeal the decision handed down by Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway.
