  • LETTER: Lady Bear pride

    “1,2,3 PRIDE!” is something the Lady Bears basketball team has been saying for years. We say this because we have pride in ourselves, each other, and most importantly our team.

  • Louisville rides to front of the pack

    Extending a line of thought in this space last week, think Bluegrass Stakes. Last prep for Derby’s run for the roses.

    See the favorites turn for home. Thinning the pack, West Virginia bumps Pitt, leaving Jamie Dixon’s contender to drop back, wait for another day. Up on the lead UConn and Syracuse exhaust themselves on each other. Between horses and rail Florida State boxes North Carolina in behind the front runners

    Then, as Cawood Ledford used to call, “... and here they come to me now!”

    The Spencer County High School Weight Team won the State AAA Championship held at Central Hardin High School on March 14. This is the weight team’s first state title.

    On the second Saturday and fourth Friday monthly our neighbors and friends John and Judy Shircliff open their doors to the community.

  • LETTER: Project Graduation, for the safety of kids

    I am writing this letter to inform the Community of Taylorsville that April is Alcohol Awareness Month.

  • Sticker shock

    Students from Spencer County High School, along with the Shelbyville and Taylorsville Police Departments, pasted MADD stickers on cartons of beer at local liquor outlets last Wednesday.

    The intent behind the stickers, sponsored by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers), is to deter the purchase of alcoholic beverages by persons under 21 years old, said Jenice Prather, a teacher at Spencer County High.

  • LETTER: Time to spiff up Spencer County

    The statewide Spring cleaning week, March 21-28, gives every county the opportunity to spruce up their county for the anticipated summer visitors. We want Spencer County to look spiffy to encourage people to tell their friends and family how great Spencer County is. We have some prime areas for viewing nature here in our county. It is a shame if the view is obstructed by trash and litter.

  • FAITH FOR TODAY: If it’s not broken, don’t fix

    The title of this article is true…. sometimes…. but not all the time. For example, if you don’t have a head- ache and are feeling fine you probably wouldn’t take medicine for a headache or if your phone is working fine you wouldn’t take it to a repair shop. But there are some things in life that you would “repair” or do some regular maintenance or preventative maintenance on. For example, it is a good idea to change the oil and filter in your car regularly. It is a good idea to brush your teeth regularly.

  • Big win for SCMS volleyball

    The girls volleyball teams at Spencer County Middle School won big over Anderson County Middle Monday night. The seventh grade team scored 21-4 in game one and 21-8 in game two for a quick match victory. The eighth grade team’s scores were a little closer, but still defeated Anderson 21-19 and 21-18.

    In one photo, Ashley Durrett sets the ball for a teammate, while in the other photo an unidentified player sends the ball sailing across the net.
