  • The Battle of Charlottesville

    The Battle of Charlottesville is over, with one person dead and a nation embarrassed.

    Yes, it was a battle, carried out by two hateful sides who came armed with sticks, bottles, rocks and wearing uniforms that included helmets and shields. Neither side was intending to engage in any civil debate. This was designed to be a battle and that only one person was killed is evidence that the cowards on both sides apparently like to dress up like soldiers, but have the actual warrior skills of toddlers - slapping, stomping and then quickly retreating.

  • FROM OUR READERS - Blaming Trump is insanity

    A bunch of white supremacists and neo-Nazi’s hold a rally in a public park.  A bunch of anti-whites including Black Lives Matter racists show up to hassle them and the fight was on.  A nutcase terrorist kills and injures people by running them down with his car.  And, who gets the blame for this?  Donald Trump.  That’s insanity.

    People in the media, you ignored the BLM people.  You look like you are afraid you will be called racists if you tell the truth.

  • FROM OUR READERS - Be aware of “The Big Lie”

    If you have not yet seen Dinesh D’Souza’s new book  “The Big Lie” - it addresses exactly what is happening with this weekend’s terroristic action and the media’s reaction.  I wish he had done the movie version first. This country needs it now.

    Bears will rely on junior class for success

    As Coach Mike Marksbury begins his seventh season at the helm of the Spencer County High School football team, his task is no longer about building a winning program, but maintaining one.

    Marksbury, whose lone losing season with the Bears came during his inaugural 5-7 campaign in 2011, has enjoyed two memorable seasons, going 8-4 last year following a 10-2 season that put the program on the map.

  • Doing it the right way

    It is amazing how many things you learn after you get married.  For example, it never dawned on me that there was a wrong way to lay out a dish rag.  When I finished doing the dishes, I would just leave the dishcloth in the sink, usually balled up in the corner.  My new bride informed me that I was doing it wrong.

  • Lady Bears Soccer: preparation may be the difference in 2017

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team bounced back from a dismal 3-14 record two years ago, to post a 10-7-1 mark last year. But gone from last year’s squad are the leading scorer, leader in assist, and their starting goalie.

    Despite those losses, head coach Kelsi Edelen remains optimistic about the upcoming season because of their preparation.

    “We are planning on continuing that momentum,” she said about the prospects of building on last season’s success. “We know the younger girls will step it up.”
