  • Bears advance with 28-7 win


    Overcoming some sloppy play, five turnovers and several penalties, the Spencer County Bears were able to survive Louisville Valley and their own mistakes in claiming a 28-7 victory in the first round of the playoffs Friday night in Taylorsville.

    Despite some hiccups, the Bears put the game away in the third quarter and didn’t give up a score until late in the contest.

  • Outdoors - Firearm deer season...

    Shredded bark on saplings, fresh scrapes along old logging trails and trail camera snapshots of passing bucks are encouraging signs that deer activity is picking up across Kentucky and just in time.

    The statewide modern firearm deer season opens Nov. 12 this year. Arguably the most widely anticipated of the fall hunting opportunities, it’s structured to coincide with the peak of fall breeding, known as the rut.

    “Deer are going to be moving,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • Bears finish strong over HC


    Racking up over 600 yards of offense and holding their opponent to less than half that, the Spencer County Bears played one of their best games Friday night in a 37-14 win at Henry County.

    The timing couldn’t be better, as the postseason begins this Friday night and the Bears were coming off a bad loss to Shelby County two weeks ago followed by a bye week. It was good to recapture the winning feeling.

  • Special Olympians advance to...


    Spencer County Special Olympic team competed in the 2016 Regional competition at Kingpin Bowling Lanes in J-town last weekend. Out of the 31 athletes that practice with the team every Monday they took 25 athletes and 5 unified partners to the Regional games and represented Spencer County proudly.  All will now go on to compete in the State Competition in Louisville next month with over 3,000 athletes from across the state.

  • Outdoors - Three great float...

    The near drought conditions of the fall season seem to have lengthened the peak of the changing of the leaves. We still have a couple of good weekends left of the beautiful fall colors.

    Paddling a stream during the peak of fall colors is the best way to enjoy this annual spectacle of nature. The brown, orange, red and yellow leaves soar above your head and line the tops of rocky, river bluffs. You see few others on the water at this time of year, lending peaceful solitude to your paddle.

  • Bears to host playoff game


    The Spencer County Bears will host a first-round playoff game next Friday night, November 4, at 7:30 p.m.
    The Bears finished 2-2 in the district, but  won a tie-breaker to earn the second seed and a home game to start the postseason. Coach Mike Marksbury said it’s not official yet, but he believes the opponent will be Louisville Valley, who are 5-4 going into the last week of the season.

  • Outdoors - Challenges abound at...


    Shirt-sleeve temperatures. Treetops buffeted by high winds. Acorns crunching underfoot.

    Without question, hunters faced challenging conditions for the early muzzleloader deer season this past weekend in Kentucky and it shows in the harvest figures. The two-day take of 2,987 deer was down sharply from last year when hunters benefitted from the timely arrival of a cold snap and a less bountiful acorn crop.

  • Rockets blast Bears 62-31


    It was a tale of two halves Friday night, unfortunately for Spencer County, the story ended in a nightmarish script as the Shelby County Rockets exploded for 41 unanswered points on their way to a 62-31 victory, ending the Bears’ hopes for a school-first district title.

    Spencer County put together an impressive first half, taking a 24-14 lead into the locker room, but a mistake-riddled third quarter doomed the Bears who were steamrolled during the second half.
