  • LETTER: Islamophobia?

    This past weekend our country took time to remember one of the most horrific days in this country’s history.  On the morning of 9/11/2001 in a series of orchestrated suicide attacks committed by radical Muslims, 2,976 innocent lives perished.  Of the 2,976 who died, 236 were foreigners, which brings the total number of Americans who died to 2,740.  This year’s anniversary was largely overshadowed by two very charged international issues.

  • COLUMN: Toleration, Islam and burning the Qur'an

    After all the protesting, the church responsible for heading up “International burn a Koran day” called it off – but not before capturing the attention of the entire world. By September 11, 2010, the intended date of the bonfire, the story of the small congregation in Gainesville, Florida to burn the Muslim holy book had become so objectionable that it no longer mattered if the actions were carried out or not. The damage that has been done is irreversible.

  • LETTER: Complete disregard for the people
  • Fast start stalls as Bears fall 46-16

    It was a perfect night for football Friday as fans packed Spencer County High School’s new stands under perfect weather conditions, and the Bears came out looking like they were about to put on a perfect gridiron performance, at least for the first quarter. However, conditions on and off the field got worse as the night progressed and when the final horn sounded there was rain falling and the Bears’ hopes had been dampened by a 46-16 defeat to West Jessamine.

    Bears’ Coach Wes Napper said everything was lined up to give the Bears an advantage.

  • Library: Tax cut not an option

    In the age of digital technology, electronic books and Internet on almost every street corner, the public library’s value could be in decline.

    But Spencer County Public Library Interim Director Lisa Lewis-Brown believes library services are more valuable than ever – and so do many of its more than 67,000 yearly patrons.

    From free wireless Internet to public computers, books, videos, music, public programs and more, Lewis-Brown said the resources available at Spencer County’s library are being accessed more than ever.

  • Grizzlies out run Mustangs

    On Saturday, the Middle School Grizzlies traveled to North Oldham and handed the Mustangs a 20-0 loss. 

    The Grizzlies were led by a stout defense that never allowed North Oldham inside the red zone and caused 4 turnovers.  Brennan Hume had the hit of the game. 

    After a scoreless first quarter, the defense rose up when on third and 10, Will Edwards blitzed up the middle sacking the quarterback and then picking up the football and scoring from 60 yards out. After the successful kick by Clay Culver, the Grizzlies led 8-0.
