  • Bears crush Cougars 77-43


    The Spencer County Bears broke the will of their opponents, broke the scoreboard, and nearly broke a state rushing record Friday night in a 77-43 victory at Bullitt Central that moved the Bears to 5-0 on the season.

  • Young soccer team showing improvement


    The Spencer County boys’ soccer team have not eclipsed five wins in a season since 2010, when they finished with an 8-10 record.

    There’s an excellent chance they’ll exceed that this year as they notched their fifth win of the season on Saturday with a 3-2 win over Bullitt Central Saturday at the King of the Bluegrass Cup at Fairdale.

    Sophomores J.J. Dickerson and Nathan Seales scored goals, as did freshmen Alec Coomes as the Bears opened up play in the weekend event. Jacob Nichols recorded an assist in the contest.

  • Jesus holds the key

    Not long ago, I was stuck on an elevator. It reached the floor I wanted, but the door wouldn’t open. After a long day, I just wanted to get to my hotel room and call it a day. Instead, I spent the next 45 minutes trapped, just waiting for someone to get me out of that little box. Someone had to come with a key to get me safely out of the elevator.

  • The world is ending! Now what?

    What would you do if you knew the world was going to end at 7 p.m. this evening? What would you be doing at say 6:45? Would you be bargaining with God? Would you simply put on your saintly smile? Would you be asking friends for forgiveness? In other words, how would you be living the rest of your time here on earth?

    After starting the season 0-5, the Lady Bears have won five of their last seven contests.

Their lone loss was to Bardstown. The girls were to be back in action Tuesday night at Shelby County, and on Thursday at Bullitt Central.

  • Big time high school football has arrived

    Halfway through the regular season, the Spencer County Bears are likely the most surprising high school football team in the state of Kentucky. They’re the highest scoring squad in the Commonwealth, averaging just over 52 points a game. They lead the state in rushing and last week, gained 738 yards on the ground, the second most ever by a Kentucky high school team, and 7th best nationally.

  • County joins Work Ready program

    Judge-Executive John Riley said he was somewhat embarrassed when he first saw the map a few months ago. The chart showed all 120 counties and how they were progressing in the Work Ready Community program, a designation that could greatly assist communities in attracting and recruiting businesses, industry, and most importantly, jobs.

    There were five counties that had taken no steps toward the designation, and Spencer County was one of them. On Wednesday, Riley and a committee of people representing the community, met to get the ball rolling.
