  • Bears' rally falls short, lose to Bethlehem 42-28

    It hasn’t mattered if the opposition is a 6A or a 1A team, Spencer County has yet to bring their A-game to the field so far this year and the Bears have fallen to 0-5 on the season after a 42-28 loss to Bethlehem Friday night in Bardstown.

    The loss was mostly the product of a very slow start that saw the host Eagles build a 21-0 lead before  the Bears rallied to keep it close until the final minutes.

    The slow start surprised Bears Coach Wes Napper, who said his players seemed to be ready at kickoff.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Everyday faith, take it seriously

    Everyday faith sounds so simple. Just have faith every day, but what does that mean? For believers in Jesus Christ, it means taking our faith seriously every day. It means applying our faith to our everyday lives.

    On a recent mission trip with our church, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks. They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes. Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.

  • LETTER: No conflict, says fire chief

    In response to the letter to the editor in last week’s paper, I would like to correct some of the statements made that I have a conflict of interest in seeking to serve on the city commission.

    First, Kentucky Revised Statute allows two firefighters to serve on a fire protection district board of trustees which are elected by the firefighters. I am proud to have our firefighters support to serve on the board. This is the same make up of all fire protection district boards across the state.

    No conflict.

  • Funbrellas to provide much-needed shade at parks

    Twenty-foot tall umbrellas will soon be popping up at county parks thanks to the health department, said Spencer County Judge Executive David Jenkins.

    Known as Funbrellas, the structures will each provide a five-foot circle of shade. Two are planned for Waterford Park, while three more will be installed at Ray Jewell Park.

    “It’s great that we can partner with other agencies in the community to get what we need,” said Jenkins. “I think they will be enjoyed a lot by people.”

  • Home cooking: Hagan's Green Tomato Bread

    Brenda Hagan found her recipe for green tomato bread in the fall issue of the magazine Acres USA: A Voice for Eco-Agriculture. Her husband subscribes to the magazine. She wanted something different to bring to the September meeting of the Bluegrass Basket Guild in Taylorsville, and thought green tomato bread fit the bill.

    “It’s unusual, different and fairly easy to make,” said Hagan, who lives in Bloomfield.

  • Despite loss, Lady Bears still near top

    The Spencer County Lady Bears suffered a 5-2 loss on the road at North Oldham last week, but coach Charlie Traughber was pleased by much of what he saw from his young team that continues to prove it belongs to be mentioned among the elite in the region.

    The Lady Bears have shot to the top of the 8th region soccer standings, but they knew that last Tuesday’s game against North Oldham would be a good measuring stick as they would be facing a perennial state power.
