  • Fishing for walleye and large...

     

    Many anglers would drive a few hundred miles for a chance to catch an 8-pound walleye or a limit of tasty sauger. Kentuckians only have to drive to Campbellsville and head south on KY 55 to the Tailwater Recreation Area below Green River Lake. You don’t even need a boat.

  • Bears beat LaRue, 61-49

     

    The Spencer County Bears broke a four-game losing streak with a 12-point victory at LaRue County last Monday night.

    Balanced scoring for the Bears helped pace a solid offensive attack as Spencer County broke open a close game in the second quarter to take a 20-13 lead into the half-time break. The Bears then expanded their lead to 43-29 after three quarters and then held on for a 61-49 victory over the Hawks.

  • Tracking wildlife in the winter

     

    Newly fallen snow has a way of awakening the spirit of adventure in kids and grown-ups alike.

    It’s also nature’s tattletale.

    As such, a fresh blanket of snow opens a window to new discoveries by revealing which animals inhabit the landscape around us and how they use it during the winter months.

    Animal tracking in the snow exercises the body and mind, and it can be fun for the entire family.

  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson

     

    For the better part of two quarters, it looked as though the Spencer County Lady Bears might be on the verge of picking up a signature win as they led Anderson County 20-16 with six minutes left in the first half. However, Anderson County’s long-range shooting spurred them to an 18-3 run to end the half, including a three-pointer at the buzzer to go up 34-23 at the break, on their way to a 74-47 victory in Taylorsville Thursday night.

    “We were off to an excellent start and played well the entire game,” said Lady Bears Coach Brandy Scott.
