  • Alcohol petition draws concerns

    Battle lines are just beginning to form as supporters and opponents claim their side in the verbal grabble over legalizing alcohol sales in Spencer County.

    At Monday morning’s fiscal court meeting, several preachers stepped down from their pulpits and petitioned magistrates in person to see their side of the issue.

    “Since some magistrates have put their name on the list of supporters, I think it is appropriate that we address the court,” said Jeff McCarty, Spencer County resident and pastor of Fisherville Baptist.

  • LETTER: 10-year-old says “beer is bad”

    I have been looking on the road. Have you? There are beer cans.

    I am 10 years old and I don’t like seeing beer cans everywhere. It doesn’t look good at all. Do know when I get older the earth is going to be a bad place.

    Also, people that drink have bad wrecks. You can die and have bad diseases.

    I know it is hard for some people to stop, but buy something other than beer.

  • Bears beat Anderson 3-1

    Good pitching, clutch hitting and solid defense combined to give the Spencer County Bears an impressive 3-1 victory over visiting Anderson County last Thursday night.

    The Bearcats dented the plate in the first inning for a lone run but it could have been worse if not for a diving snag of a line drive in left field by Spencer County’s Cameron Smith that ended the inning with an Anderson runner stranded on third.

    In the third inning an unassisted double play by Bear 2nd baseman Timmy Riley ended another scoring threat by the Bearcats.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: I’m no Grace Hanadarko

    “Attention all units, you are reporting to the scene of an active school shooting.”

    With those words, I could feel my pulse begin to race. I watched silently as a parent’s worst nightmare began to unfold. Two teenage students barely looked my way as they ran past. Their faces pale. Their eyes wide with fear.

    “They shot my friend,” cried one student as she craddled another laying in a dark pool of liquid. In the distance, shots rang out – and for a second, I think my heart actually stopped.
