  • Central ends Bears' longest season

    Spencer County’s final game of the 2010 season ended Friday night with a reminder of what could have been. A big offensive line up front blocking for a senior running back who plowed into the end zone for a touchdown.

    However, this score by Kevin Hume came in the closing minute of a 38-10 loss to Louisville Central in the opening round of the playoffs that closed out an 0-11 Bears’ season that started with so much promise but was derailed by key injuries, a brutal schedule and negative momentum that just built up steam with each mounting loss.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Fall fishing at reservoirs

    This is the time of year when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will start pulling the water out of our reservoirs in order to prepare for spring rains that will come next season. The effect to the fish and the fishermen will change daily until the water will get to what is called winter pool. Until then, an angler must adapt and watch the current conditions in order to stay where the bass and bait are.

  • LETTER: Best wishes to newly-elected

    Best wishes to all of our newly elected officials and congratulations to Woody Cheek, our new magistrate for the fourth district.

    I would like to thank all of the people who supported me in this election.

    I have met and talked with so many great people with so many questions and remarkable ideas for our district. Your suggestions and ideas were spread to others as I progressed along the campaign trail, and I thing that these ideas will become reality if we continue to ask.

  • New direction planned for Christmas on Main

    The town’s annual Christmas celebration is taking a new direction this year that event coordinators are hoping will incorporate more family fun.

    Christmas on Main 2010 is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 11, a change from years past when the festivities were held on a Friday evening.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Dandelions becoming more prevalent in fall crops

    Common chickweed, henbit, and purple deadnettle are cool-season weeds we usually see in crop fields during the fall and winter.

    However, other weeds, such as dandelions, have become more prevalent in recent years. Dandelions are generally considered a major lawn or pasture weed but are increasingly found in grain crop fields.

    The expansion of dandelion populations in field crops is likely due to fewer applications of soil-residual herbicides along with no-till crop production practices.

  • LETTER: Horray! Hooray!

    After years of “a tablespoon of rock and a cup of oil to patch a pothole,” that lasted only a few hours, a new road of blacktop has happened.

    Thanks Mr. Jenkins.

  • Look out for flying discs

    Scott Ringham confessed Monday that he was uncertain disc golf would ever be a reality at Taylorsville Lake State Park. As an avid player, the park manager had the drive to see a championship course built, but with costs shooting up to $22,000 plus labor – well, it was beginning to look like an improbability.

    That was before he learned that one park’s misfortune would be his stroke of good luck.

  • COLUMN: Opposition just too strong for Bears this season

    After the first week of postseason play in Kentucky, the majority of high school football teams have put away their helmets and pads for the season. For some, the seasons ended way too fast as upsets ended bigger dreams. For others, the losses were a bit more expected.
