  • SCHS locker room a source of pride

    The Bears now have a den of their own.

    Through contributions of money, time and hard work, the Spencer County High School football team has a locker room to be proud of. After previously being assigned to the visiting locker rooms in the basketball gym, which meant a long walk from the field, their new space is bigger, closer and a source of pride.

  • LETTER: Deputies work for the taxpayers

    In response to the letter from the clearly misinformed deputies of Spencer County; The taxpayers, aka, the public would like to let the deputies know that they are not employed by Steve Coulter.  This goes for all county employees.  You work for the taxpayers.  The person your performance is judged by may authorize your pay and sign your timecard or paycheck, but it is merely a worthless piece of paper without the money that we the taxpayers back it up with and deposit regularly to cover those expenses.

  • Bears front line will be key to success

    They are usually the easiest to spot on the field, but the hardest to name from the stands. These are typically the biggest, meanest and dirtiest guys on a football team, but they are also the most anonymous.

    They’re the offensive line and while they don’t get the attention or credit of the guys who score the touchdowns, their efforts are just as important.

    For Spencer County’s 2010 football season, a large, seasoned line might be the team’s most potent weapon.

  • HOME COOKING: Darnell's Apple Spice Cake

    Jan Darnell of Elk Creek changed the recipe she found on the back of a cake mix to create her own version of apple spice cake. She found a spice cake mix that called for applesauce but decided that she wanted chunks of apples instead.

    When apples are in season, Darnell uses fresh sliced apples. She often freezes sliced apples in the fall so she can make pies year round and uses those frozen apples for the cake out of season.
