    Lukas Tackett drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning for the Spencer County Bears as they rallied to take a 12-8 victory at Collins last Tuesday night to split their two game series with their district rivals.

    The Bears lost the opening game at home, falling 8-3 on Monday. In that game, Blake Lambdin hit a two-run homer to stake the Bears to an early lead, but they were unable to hold it as the Titans pulled ahead in the later innings for the win.

  • A sock and a shoe

    We all have our routines; the way we do things. One morning not long ago, I realized I am a sock and a shoe kind of guy. Where some people put on both socks, then grab their shoes, I put on a sock and a shoe, then I put on the other sock and shoe.

    National Day of Prayer May 5

    The community is invited to gather at the Spencer County Courthouse steps at noon on Thursday, May 5, for the National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme is “Wake Up America” and the key verse is taken from Isaiah 58:1, “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.” The verse is a reminder to those gathering that prayer is a force for good in the nation. In case of inclement weather, the prayer will be held at First Baptist Church on Main Street.

    One national watchdog group thinks it might. But no one is contemplating any action to stop the new road improvements planned near the soon-to-open Ark Encounter in Williamstown.

    An improved interchange near the for-profit Ark Encounter at Interstate 75 and Ky. 36 made it into the state budget and road plan approved by the Kentucky General Assembly last week. The state is allocating $10 million to the project.
