The fifth graders were each assigned a colonial trade and were responsible for designing their “store” or “office” , and bringing in artifacts that went along with their trade. They also wrote a short script to say to the visitors of their booth.

  • Bears earning respect of Central Louisville

    The Spencer County Bears began the season by building a reputation as a team that could compete against anybody. While they ended their regular season on a down note with some lopsided defeats, they closed out their 2009 campaign by gaining back some of that respect in a hard-fought 56-36 loss to two-time defending State Champion Louisville Central Friday night.

    “I am very proud of the way our men battled against a very good Central team,” said first year Head Coach Wes Napper. “I think we gave them more of a game than what they had initially thought.”

  • Single vehicle accident on KY 44

    If Tom McAnelly had not made a trip to the kitchen early Saturday morning, Willis Milburn might not be alive today, said Spencer County Deputy Gordan Miles.

    Looking out a window, McAnelly told police that he could see head lights shining in the woods near his house. Far from where they should normally be seen along KY 44/Mt. Washington Road.

    When emergency crews arrived on the scene at 3 a.m., they found Milburn’s white truck about 30 feet down an embankment.

    “If someone hadn’t called it in, we might not have seen him,” said Miles.
