  • SCHS Homecoming 2017

     

    Despite a loss, students enjoyed their 2017 Homecoming Friday night with great weather and lots of fun.

  • FROM OUR READERS - NFL Hypocrisy

    Roger Goodell complains that President Trump shows a lack of respect for the NFL by criticizing the black players who refuse to honor our U.S. flag.  Goodell should be shown no respect because Goodell and the NFL has shown no respect for their own players.

    Goodell and the NFL has worked to suppress the scientific evidence that the head banging in a football game has led to permanent brain damage in players.  A recent PBS program went into the suppression by the NFL in great detail.

  • Athletic Complex long overdue

    The Spencer County Board of Education Monday night approved a $5.28 million project that will greatly improve the athletic facilities at the high school. The improvements are welcome and long overdue.

    Spencer County schools have seen a sharp increase in test scores over the years and the new reputation is spreading far and wide. Real estate professionals now tell us that our local schools are now helping attract people to the community, where before, they sometimes worked as a liability.

  • In defense of our Flag

    Political correctness is not just silly, it’s dangerous. The NFL is about to find out how costly it can be now that it has firmly sided with players who have made the decision to dishonor America, the flag and those who have served, by kneeling for the National Anthem.

    The initial response to those who support the players is that they are honoring our country by exercising their freedoms. That’s like honoring your mom’s unconditional, forgiving love by slapping her on Mother’s Day.

  • Opioid lawsuit legal firms named

    Attorney General Andy Beshear Friday announced the legal team his office will partner with in the investigation and prospective litigation against drug manufacturers, distributors and retailers where there is evidence that they contributed to the opioid epidemic by illegally marketing, distributing and selling opioids to Kentuckians.
