  • Storm postpones district tourney

    The Spencer County Bears were set to host the 30th District Baseball Tournament on Monday night but were only able to complete one inning before an approaching storm postponed their game with Anderson County.

    With a scoreless game in the top of the second inning, a nearby lightning strike prompted umpires to direct the teams off the field for a weather delay.

    However, a heavy downpour minutes later rendered the field unplayable and the game was postponed and the tournament was to resume when weather allowed, possibly Tuesday afternoon.

  • COLUMN: WKU's Kerusch finishes at head of his class

    Sergio Kerusch is blessed with a Scotty Pippin run-the-floor body, a smile worth a million bucks, and maybe, ideally, a Larry Bird play-all-day love for the game.

  • A Dirty Secret: Dirt cake recipe fun and delicious

    Memorial Day is the traditional start of the picnic and backyard cookout season. It is a great time to experiment with fun recipes. Donna Bulf’s dirt cake is a fun dessert for any time, but would be especially fun at a summer holiday celebration.

    Bulf got her recipe for dirt cake from her daughter about 17 years ago, and it has become a favorite dessert for many of her outdoor gatherings.

    “We started decorating it in a pot,” said Bulf. “It can be put in 9x13 pans or glass bowls. But if you want to shock somebody, put it in a pot!”
