  • Governor's Cup winner? Like picking Derby horse

    Governor’s Cup XXIII, Kentucky at Louisville.

    History tells us, as a season opener, picking a Gov’s Cup winner is like handicapping the Kentucky Derby – everybody’s an expert and nobody has a clue.

    More experience and two marquee stars belong to Kentucky – Derrick Locke and Randall Cobb. Louisville has all new people coaching, many new (and young) faces, and home field.

    Today, (keepin’ it simple, stupid) one man climbs out on one limb ...

    1. UK defensive line will be better than Louisville’s offensive one.

  • Be a SCMS hero

  • Writer learns from work at home scam

    Being a stay-at-home mom is a full time job.  However, for many different reasons moms may need to seek out other avenues that actually bring in some cash.  I am currently one of those moms.  Trying to find a job in this economy is tough.  Add to the fact that the hours I am available to work are after the kids have gone to school in the morning and only until they get out of school in the afternoon.  Oh, one more thing, I haven’t been employed outside the home in over twelve years.  Makes for a very interesting resume.

  • Field Day provides a new crop of ideas

    The Kentucky Department of Agriculture sponsored an Agricultural Field Day at Deutsch Farm  August 23 featuring the research that they have conducted on their farm on mum productions and the use of black plastic and drip irrigation.

Dinner was catered by Barrel Smoked BBQ in Elk Creek.

    “We did a demo plot on growing mums for the University of Kentucky Agriculture Department,” said Sandi Deutsch.

  • Tough loss for SCHS volleyball

    The Spencer County Volleyball team had a relatively quiet week, playing only one match in what has been a very busy start to their season.

    Despite a 2-13 record on the year, the girls have been competitive in most of their matches, and last week’s road loss at Bullitt East was no exception.

    Spencer County dropped the first game by a score of 25-22 and Bullitt

    East rallied to nip the Lady Bears in the second game, 25-23.

    In both games, Spencer County were able to build leads, but were not able to hold on for the victory.
