  • Four head to All-State game

    Football has become a Thanksgiving Day tradition, but for four local middle school boys, the tradition won’t have anything to do with sitting on the couch watching the after-meal contest, but will involve strapping on the helmet and hitting the field for the inaugural Kentucky Middle School Football Association’s East Vs. West All-State Football Classic to be held in Frankfort.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: The measure of Thanksgiving

    Contrary to what many people believe, the original thanksgiving celebration was not intended to be a day set aside to thank the Indians for their help as much as it was to thank God for providing them safety, deliverance and the blessings of food, land and shelter. During those three days of feasting and games the Pilgrim’s and several friendly Indians lifted up prayers, sermons and songs in praise for God’s provision.

  • BLUE vs. WHITE: Girls basketball preview

    Progress isn’t always measured by speed, but by direction. The Spencer County Lady Bears have made huge strides in recent years, culminating last season in a trip to the 8th Region tournament.

    While there are some experienced players returning, the team will have to find a way to make up for the loss of Kenisha Marshall, who graduated last year as one of the program’s most prolific scorers and rebounders. Head Coach Daniel Cox said the key to the program is to keep moving forward.

    Dean Milk is recruiting additional farmers to supply milk directly to the plant.

  • FROM THE WORD: Will we allow history to be repeated?

    Two years ago, a friend and I were talking about our country and how evil it had became. We agreed that our country had become so evil, if we kept on the road we were going, evil would override good.

    Let’s take a good look at our country today. If we continue on the direction we are on now, there is no way our country will stand. I believe the biggest question we have to ask ourselves is how many public servants do we have in office today. Take a look at governments local, state and federal. How many do we have in these offices that we can trust to serve we the people?

  • District works on closing gaps

  • LETTER: Equal time is fair play

    I would love to know who is in charge of determining what sport is more important than the next in Spencer County.

    My daughters play volleyball for the middle school. I know that most people aren’t as interested in volleyball as they are basketball or football, but there is only one gym in the Spencer County Middle School and it should be shared.
