  • Kim Davis saga brings Kentucky to shame

    While Americans put a cap on the summer and enjoyed a three day weekend, Kim Davis sat in a Kentucky jail cell for refusing to act in a way she said would violate her first amendment freedom of religion.

    Much has been said and written about the plight of Davis. There are plenty who detest the Rowan County clerk, and yet there are an equal number of folks who admire her. Count me among the latter.

  • From our readers: Kentucky’s ethics problems

    GOP gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin has been criticized by the Attorney General Jack Conway and his supporters for actions they consider shady. By doing so, the Conway campaign has opened the door to the daylight on the corruption in Kentucky.

  • Undefeated Bears roll again


    In past seasons, Spencer County Bears’ Football Coach Mike Marksbury said his team hasn’t handled success well. They seem to have learned from their mistakes as they now sport a perfect 3-0 record following a 40-8 thrashing of region foe East Jessamine Friday night.

    The Spencer County Lady Bears Volleyball team dropped their match with Bullitt East in Mt. Washington last Tuesday night, despite a good effort to keep it close for a while. The girls dropped the first game 25-13, but played better in the second game, only to let a tie game get away late, losing 25-19. In the third and final game, the girls got behind early, but rallied to make it respectable, before falling 25-17. The girls are still looking for their first win of the season, and were to host Bullitt Central on Tuesday, and will host Collins on Thursday night.

  • Bears in the spotlight...


    Excitement is brewing at Spencer County High School as the football team is 3-0 to start the season, earning them recognition as WKLY-TV’s School of the Week.

    Fred Cowgill, sports director at the Louisville station, was on hand last Thursday morning to present the trophy before a packed gymnasium full of students and faculty. He was impressed by the enthusiasm in the school.

    “We were looking for a program that needed a little exposure and love, and I think we found it,” said Cowgill as he greeted the students.

  • Holbrook a fitting leader for the Bears

    When I moved to Spencer County in 2003, it was just a few months before the high school began its football program. I can probably count on one hand the number of games I’ve missed over the past 13 seasons, and it’s truly been enjoyable watching the program develop.

  • Know the will of God

    Does God still speak to us today? Does he have a master plan? These are important questions in life. We want to know things like: What will I do with my life? Who will I marry? Why am I overweight? Okay, that last one was a little personal, but you get the idea. In the broad sense, yes, God does still speak people today and yes, he does have a plan for your life.
