  • Bears trounce Rebels

    After one half, the Spencer County Bears may have tricked the Atherton Rebels into thinking the game would be a close affair, but then they treated the home fans to an offensive outburst in the second half on their way to a 42-8 Halloween night thrashing.

    While the end result was sweet, Bears Coach Matt Powenski said his team let up after getting off to a fast start.

    “We came out ready and scored twice and we relaxed a little bit,” said Powenski. “We’re trying to teach our players not to play down.”

  • Food pantry runs low on space and canned goods

    For the first time in the four years that Jill Whitehouse has led the effort to distribute canned goods to local residents in need, last month she completely ran out of food.

    Several factors contributed to the dilemma, said the program coordinator for Spencer County’s Multi-Purpose Action Committee (MPAC). Contributions by area churches were down and requests for food that month were up.

  • LETTER: SCHS serving hot lunches for months

    I have just finished reading Kathy Lynch’s article in the October 29 edition of the Magnet. Your front page box “inside today” states that “SCHS students still brown-bagging it”; See A16.

    I am still looking at page 16 and do not find any reference to the “brown-bagging it”.

    The cafeteria has been serving “hot” lunches for months. It would be nice if you could get your facts straight and not place inaccurate information in the Magnet.

  • ELECTION 2008: Voter turn out impressive

    The only complaint heard through-out the county on this election day from voters was the long lines at the precincts. Which can only mean there were lots of people voting.

    “We have had an awesome turnout,” said Election Officer Sheriff Brent Baker as voters streamed steadily in and out of First Baptist Church on Main Street.

  • Deer hunters take to the woods this Saturday

    Kentucky’s modern gun deer season opens statewide Nov. 8. For the state’s estimated 254,000 deer hunters, it’s the most popular weekend of the year to hunt.

    “The deer harvest to this point is up from last year,” said Tina Brunjes, big game program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “That’s partly due to good weather, but also indicative that we’ve got a lot of deer.”

  • Maxine Ethington found

    The body of Maxine Ethington was found Sunday afternoon next to her vehicle off Beckley Station Road near Middletown.

    Shelbyville Police reported a body was found next to the car but would not identify that body. A family member later confirmed to The Sentinel-News that the body was believed to be Ethington’s. A coroner’s report was pending.

    Shelbyville Police said no foul play is suspected. The car apparently still was engaged and had run out of gas after being driven off the road, more than 20 miles from Ethington’s home on Craig Ave. in Shelbyville.
