  • Outdoors - Local area offers...


    Winter days in the 60s make for crowded boat ramps and golf courses during a time of year usually spent indoors.
    Everything, nature wise, seems a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. Buds show on lilac bushes, green grass already grows in bunches and the sound of lawn mowers permeates an afternoon backyard barbecue.

    The rare winter temperatures may alter white bass spawning runs as well.

  • Outdoors - Road open for Salt...


    Road access to a section of Salt River above Taylorsville Lake is now open for vehicles in preparation for the coming white bass spawning run.

    The gated accesses at Palmer Road and Old River Road off KY 44 at Taylorsville Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will remain open from daylight until dark through late summer, except for closures during youth and spring turkey seasons.

  • Outdoors - Up and coming...

    The Fisheries Division’s Fishing Forecast each year presents its “Up and Coming Fisheries,” a savory menu of potential fishing trips for anglers to try in the coming year.

  • Girls rally, but fall 59-55


    With just a few seconds left on the clock, sophomore Alyssa Howie lay on the floor in tears after colliding with an Owen County opponent. After a few moments, she was on her feet and back in the game. The pain in her shoulder didn’t stop her from draining a three-pointer with just 10 seconds left on the clock. But it was too little, too late, as Owen County hit free throws down the stretch to secure a 59-55 victory in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament hosted by Oldham County.

  • Girls earn trip to Regional


    The season rolls on for at least another week for the Spencer County Lady Bears, who were runners-up in last week’s District Tournament, earning them a spot in the 8th Region Tournament where they were scheduled to take on Owen County Tuesday night at 8 p.m. in the first round.

    The Lady Bears had an exciting come-from-behind win last Wednesday to secure their advancement, besting host Collins 50-47.

  • Boys struggle with Anderson,...


    It was clear from the beginning that it was going to be a rough night for the Spencer County Bears, as they struggled offensively against a very physical Anderson County squad, scoring only nine points in the first half on their way to a 52-35 loss in the first round of the 30th District Tournament last Wednesday night at Collins High School.

  • The Best fans in the 30th...

    Fifteen minutes before tip-off of Wednesday night’s opening round action of the 30th District Tournament at Collins High School in Shelbyville, Spencer County fans had already taken up most of one side of the gymnasium. It was a sea of blue and they kept coming in as the minutes ticked off before the first game started.

  • Outdoors - Fishing season is...


    The mild weather this winter has many thinking it will be an early spring across Kentucky.
    The earlier, the better for anglers, who by late February are like sprinters on their marks waiting for the starter’s pistol to fire.

    Some of the best fishing of the year is right around the corner. The new license year is, too. It starts March 1.
    For $20, an annual resident Kentucky fishing license serves as a ticket to good fishing opportunities, but also as an investment.

  • Boys rout Cougars for 20th win


    The Spencer County Bears notched their 20th win on the season and ended their regular season on a high note as they easily dispatched of Bullitt Central, 71-29 Friday night at home.

    The Bears jumped to an early 12-4 lead and never looked back as they hit the 20 win mark for the first time since the 2010-11 season. The team looks more than ready for the post-season, which will begin tonight (Wednesday) as the Bears take on Anderson County in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament, hosted by Collins High School.
