  • Heads and Tails - Chapter 9

     1997 – Not the 21st century, but close! At least everything felt familiar. For one, our computer was back. Not the computer I was accustomed to, but a late ‘90s model. I had to dial a phone number so I could connect to the Internet. Our TV included more channels and a remote control. Also, just by turning it on, we knew all the news all around the world in just a matter of minutes.

  • Community rallies to help lung transplant patient

    In a lot of ways Mike Simpson is a typical man. He is a hard worker, hates to sit still and he’s never been one to rely on others for help. But that all changed when he was diagnosed with a hereditary lung disease 14 years ago called Alpha -1.

    “I loved going to work. I loved the traveling. It was fantastic,” said the former Purnell’s sausage salesman. “Then I got to where I was having trouble breathing and I couldn’t figure out what it was.”

    Spencer County’s football season came to an ugly end Friday night as they suffered a 32-19 loss to Louisville Shawnee in the opening round of the 3A playoffs in a game that exposed the consequences of a poor finish.

    There was the failure to finish a game-opening drive by the Bears after they drove the ball to inside the one-yard line of Shawnee, a failure to finish the season strong and a failure to finish with class as the game ended with a brawl brought on by poor sportsmanship on both sides.
