  • 2nd CHANCE with Credit Recovery

    Corey Monday knew his chances of graduating from Spencer County High School weren’t good. The 19-year- old found it hard to focus in a large classroom setting and was constantly getting sidetracked. He was easily swayed by peer influences and didn’t feel like he was getting the help he needed.

    The distractions made it hard for him to complete his work, much less excel. Eventually Monday recognized that he had to make a change or he was going to become a high school dropout statistic.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Festivals, neighbors and cats

    Shakespeare wrote; “There is nothing so common as the wish to be remarkable.” This weekend’s Octoberfest in the city will be another reason why this place we call “home” is remarkable. The city will come alive again with pageants, parades, arts and crafts, music, car show, displays, booths, great food, games, and family fun all weekend. Thanks to Gary Kehne, Patsy Lewis, and the hard work and imagination of all of the volunteers and staff who make this event a success every year. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

  • SCHS improves to 6-8 with win over Evangel Christian Friday

    The Spencer County Bears got a lot of playing time for some younger players Friday during an 8-4 win over Evangel Christian at home.

    The Bears jumped out early when Thibaut Golliard scored on an assist by Cody Coomes, who would score a second goal for the Bears shortly after.

    Later in the first half, Tyler Fleig’s kick went across the front of the goal and Todd Clemens crashed the goal, putting the ball in the next for a 3-0 lead.

    Coach Paul Taylor said he then used the opportunity to put in the freshmen for the last 20 minutes of the half.

  • 'Dukes' star Octoberfest Grand Marshal

    The humble, but bumbling, Deputy Enos Strate on the 1980s series “The Dukes of Hazard” would have never dreamed of becoming sheriff. This weekend, he will do one better when the actor that portrayed the Hazard deputy will be the honorary 2010 Octoberfest Grand Marshal.

    “We wanted to bring a little celebrity status to Taylorsville,” said Toby Lewis, Octoberfest committee member. “When folks come to the festival, they will be able to get their picture made with a real movie star.”
