  • Does God still speak to us today?

    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? And what is my purpose in life? These are similar questions addressed last week. And while this issue is more than I can do justice in just a couple of columns, I hope to give you enough Scripture where you can pursue this on your own.

  • Heed speed bumps

    Speed bumps can be annoying. But they also remind us to slow down, keeping pedestrians and even other drivers safe. While we may drive around them if we can, we usually realize how helpful they are.

  • Bears Soccer


    The Spencer County Bears soccer team picked up their fourth win of the season with a 4-3 victory over Nelson County last week.

    The boys are 4-5-1 on the season and will face district foe Shelby County on Tuesday in Shelbyville, and will travel to Bullitt East on Thursday evening. This weekend, they will play Muhlenberg County, Bullitt Central and Bardstown at the King of the Bluegrass Cup at Fairdale High School.

  • Bears charge over Bullitt East


    Another week, another win for the Spencer County Bears football team, as they made the short drive to Mt. Washington Friday and took care of traditional rival Bullitt East, 43-21 to improve to 4-0 on the season.

    It was not a game without hiccups, however, as the Bears coughed up a couple of turnovers and gave up two late scores, but Coach Mike Marksbury’s team remains perfect on the season and could even move up in the rankings. Last week, they were ranked 4th in class 4A among 41 teams in Kentucky, and ranked 19th overall, out of 221 schools.
