  • Do you feel it yet?

    I know it isn’t even December yet, but do you feel it?  The holiday season is upon us in full strength.  Some TV networks are running Christmas programming 24 hours a day.  The stores have had trees and decorations up since before Halloween.  I’m exhausted already.

  • Close isn’t good enough for Bears this year


    Last year, the Spencer County Bears struggled through an 11-18 season, which included a heart-breaking two-point loss to Collins, an overtime loss in the district tournament to Anderson County, and a triple overtime loss to Shelby County.

  • Lady Bears are growing up

They still have only one senior on the team, but this group has logged a lot of varsity minutes and should be prepared for the new season.

    “The perspective has changed a lot, said third-year coach Brandy Scott. “We are a very seasoned teams in terms of experience, but we are also more mature now. We still were not quite there last year.”

  • Choosing and caring for live Christmas trees

    It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. I have family visiting for Christmas, so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
