  • Kentucky must stand united

    A new day is dawning in Kentucky. For the first time in many years, the winds of financial responsibility have begun to blow briskly through the marble halls of Frankfort. These welcome breezes are ushering in the promise of a fresh start for the Commonwealth.

  • Are your kids Kindergarten ready?

     

    A building is only as strong as its foundation. The same is true of a child’s education and Spencer County Public Schools are working to shore up the educational foundations of the county’s youth by focusing on those formative years.

    “The home is the child’s first classroom,” said Spencer County Assistant Superintendent Chuck Abell. “The initial learning takes place there.”

  • Agriculture - Find friends and fun at 4-H camp this summer

    Now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H camp.

    4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 13. At 4-H camp, young people learn independence and responsibility while having a lot of fun and making new friends.

  • Agriculture - Mulch matters

    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks. When done properly it can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature. These things can be achieved using a variety of materials, but which type of mulch suits your needs best?

  • Bears split series with Shelby

     

    The Spencer County Bears jumped right back into district action this week with a two game series against Collins, one week after splitting a pair of games against district rival Shelby County.

    The Bears traveled to Shelby County last Tuesday to open district play, and took a 6-3 victory over the Rockets.

    The teams were locked in a pitcher’s dual early on as Spencer County’s Blake Lambdin worked out of a couple of early inning jams to hold Shelby County scoreless through six innings.

  • Lady Bears take two of three, improve to 13-6

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears bounced back from an early week district loss to Shelby County, to earn two solid wins to close out the week, including a 14-9 win over Pleasure Ridge Park during the Lady Bear Invitational held on Saturday.

    Spencer County, 13-6 on the season, opened the week by traveling to district rival Shelby County on Wednesday, and it took two extra innings for the Lady Rockets to pull out the 4-3 victory.

  • UK’s Elam knows he has room to improve

    Before the Blue-White Game reached halftime, some Kentucky fans were complaining on Twitter about the play of junior nose guard Matt Elam.

    Out of shape. Too upright. Not aggressive. Gets pushed out of the way too easy. Lacks intensity.
    Elam knows the criticism is there. He picked UK over Alabama and during his first two seasons he has not met the lofty expectations most had for him. He filled in as a starter last year after Melvin Lewis was hurt, and this season Kentucky is counting on him to be the man in the middle of the defensive line.

  • Youth Baseball

     

    Saturday was opening day for the Spencer County Youth Baseball Association.
