  • LETTER: A call to stand up to cemetery board

    I’m writing because when we pay for a lot to lay our love ones in, we really still have no say so over it.

    I paid for a lot to put my dad and I can’t do anything up there I want to do. I can’t put up a cross behind the headstone and he is at the fence row. I own one grave at the left of him and three at the right of him.

    I was told my flower bed had to come down. The glass stuff on it had to go and letters were being sent to others over the same things. Nothing on the sides of the head stones; only 12 inches in front of it.

  • Bears win penalty-riddled game

    It wasn’t their best game of the year, but the Spencer County Bears played well enough to score a 30-14 win over the visiting Bethlehem Eagles Friday night.

    Sure, they racked up some impressive numbers, such as gaining almost 400 yards rushing for the evening, but it was the 12 penalties for well over 100 yards that has the coaching staff planning how to utilize the much-needed off week coming up.

    “You are always happy with a win, but we’re definitely not happy with the performance of our offensive unit,” said Head Coach Wes Napper after the game.

The Lady Bears travel to South Oldham tonight and will be at Bullitt East next Tuesday before returning home to host Henry County next Thursday.

  • Governor's Cup was a back and forth frenzy for fans

    The 15th Governor’s Cup made up in suspense and back-and-forth what it may have lacked in Southern Cal vs. Whoever hype.

    When the smoke cleared on a 31-27 Kentucky win, these things were clear.

    √ A wager on a two touchdown point spread in a rival match is a sucker bet.

    √ Scoreboard clicked up 58 points keeping 70,988 fans on the edge of their seats, and was a good alternative for a television audience bored with Alabama’s scrimmage against North Texas State, Ohio State-Toledo and Michigan-Eastern Michigan.

  • For their love of our county...

    With a slight tremor in his voice and perhaps some watering of the eyes, Steve Tichenor humbly accepted the praise bestowed on him and his family Saturday afternoon.

    “Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to see these kids out here playing soccer, baseball and softball. This park has grown into something greater than I ever dreamed it would be,” said Tichenor.
