  • GUEST COLUMN: Top water in late...

    Mid November is the time of year when the water temp will dramatically start dropping, getting down into the fifties degree mark. A lot of anglers would never think of using top water. I know from experience that it can really get a lot of bites and some giant bites from some feeding largemouths.

    The shad will be shallow and the bass know this. I have had days when I would be fishing a jig, crankbait or a spinnerbait and only be getting a few fish. Then, switching to a top water and fishing the same area, then I would get some of the most aggressive strikes ever.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Enes Canter is...

    Enes Kanter was let go by the NCAA last week.

    In the Land of the Free, the ex-Turkish professional wannabe-an-amateur-again can examine a full range of good options.

    First, UK’s appeal to the NCAA decision that cited 33,000 reasons why it made Kanter permanently ineligible.

    He can ...

    1. Hang around Lexington, play YMCA ball until the NBA Draft next spring.

    2. Return to Istanbul, sign a pro contract like one he played under for three seasons.

    Michael Vick had the greatest game of his career Monday night in leading his Philadelphia Eagles to a humiliating 59-28 trouncing of the Washington Redskins. Vick threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns, ran for over 80 yards and two more touchdowns and basically played the type of game that his athletic ability had long hinted he was capable of.

  • Kleinjan among top runners in...

    Cory Kleinjan crossed the finish line of the final race of his high school cross country career Sunday in Lexington. He finished fourth with a time of 16:49 at the AA State Championship.

    Kleinjan was approached by several college coaches as they tried to persuade him to run for their respective schools. The Spencer County High School senior, however, has already committed to run for University of the Cumberlands. There, he will join former teammate Chelsey Talley.

  • SCES Dance Team wins

    The Spencer County Elementary School Dance Team has been to two competitions in October and has placed with additional awards at both.

    In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the girls wanted to help support the cause during their routine. Team members wore pink tank tops, breast cancer ribbon tattoos on their faces, breast cancer ribbons on their shorts, and pink hair bows.

  • Central ends Bears' longest...

    Spencer County’s final game of the 2010 season ended Friday night with a reminder of what could have been. A big offensive line up front blocking for a senior running back who plowed into the end zone for a touchdown.

    However, this score by Kevin Hume came in the closing minute of a 38-10 loss to Louisville Central in the opening round of the playoffs that closed out an 0-11 Bears’ season that started with so much promise but was derailed by key injuries, a brutal schedule and negative momentum that just built up steam with each mounting loss.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Fall fishing at...

    This is the time of year when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will start pulling the water out of our reservoirs in order to prepare for spring rains that will come next season. The effect to the fish and the fishermen will change daily until the water will get to what is called winter pool. Until then, an angler must adapt and watch the current conditions in order to stay where the bass and bait are.

  • COLUMN: Opposition just too...

    After the first week of postseason play in Kentucky, the majority of high school football teams have put away their helmets and pads for the season. For some, the seasons ended way too fast as upsets ended bigger dreams. For others, the losses were a bit more expected.
