  • Outdoors - Proper shotgun fundamentals critical for hunters


    A dove comes into your section of the field on opening day. You crouch behind a row of sunflowers and excitedly wait for the dove to come into range.

    The dove keeps coming and you jump up, shoulder your shotgun and fire, followed by another shot and then another, none of them threatening the bird. The dove keeps flying out of the field.

    The opening weekend of dove season can bring frustration to wingshooters as dove hunters, even highly experienced ones, start missing shots they normally make. The misses snowball and aggravation mounts.

  • SC does Friday night RIGHT

    Back in 2003, when the very first Spencer County High School football team took the field for their inaugural game, then coach Junior Dugan gathered the team beneath a tree near the field for a pregame pep talk.

    I don’t recall everything that was said, and the game was a pretty meaningless Saturday afternoon junior varsity affair, but Dugan did tell his players that they had an opportunity to lay the foundation for a new tradition.

  • Bears outlast Bullitt East, 55-46


    When Bullitt East scored on a quarterback keeper with a minute left in the third quarter to take their first lead of the night, 39-35, there was no panic on the Spencer County sidelines. Instead, the Bears retook the field and then retook the lead on one snap when junior running back Kadin Smith found a hole and raced 65 yards, putting the Bears up 42-39.

    It was that kind of night for the Bears, as they scored on big plays and needed every one to hold off a potent Charger offense before coming away with a 55-46 victory, their third in a row.

  • Agriculture - Ready for fall bulbs?

    Who doesn’t love bulbs, especially daffodils, a sure sign that we have made it through winter. You can fill an entire spring season with daffodils by choosing early through late bloomers.  But if you want a more diverse display consider adding some other spring and summer bulbs to the garden this fall.
