  • Time trial event returns

    The 2010 USA Cycling Masters Road National Championship kicked off Tuesday in Taylorsville with hundreds of cyclists competing in the individual and tandem time trial event. Over 800 riders are expected to participate this week in other related events in Louisville.  Cyclists, age 30 and above, are duking it out for the more than 60 national titles in the road race, criterium, and time trial events. 

  • Meet the 2010-11 Spencer County...

    It could be a big 2010 for the Spencer County Bears football team.

    They’ve got a big, experienced offensive line. They’ve got a big-time prospect in senior running back Erico Smith. And they’ve got a schedule full of big schools that will provide some challenging competition to help prepare them for the postseason.

    So do those things mean fans should have big expectations? Second year head coach Wes Napper thinks that’s reasonable, especially since his own expectations are pretty high.

  • $ypher trial needs Andy Rooney,...

    Rick Pitino strode through the valley of the shadow of humiliation last week.

    As expected, Louisville’s coach was more than a match for the defendant’s attorney in the Karen $ypher trial. But, when asked how long his dalliance with $ypher lasted, Pitino issued a gaffe that made him into a punch line.

    “Fifteen seconds.”

    Excuse me? Pitino had to be thinking half-court how-to with the clock running down. This remark could earn Pitino a place with the other Unforgettables who said:

    “Well, I am not a crook,”  

  • Cyclists wheel into town Tuesday

    Pedal power will be on display in Spencer County next Tuesday as the U.S. Cycling Master’s National Time Trial Championships are held here for the second consecutive year.

    Troy Killian, director of operations for the Louisville Sports Commission, said the event will return to Taylorsville because of its success last year, when nearly 1,000 riders showed up for a 14-mile timed event.

    “Last year was very successful. We had great cooperation from everyone out there and the athletes really enjoyed it.”

  • Bringing home the bronze

    The seventh and eighth grade Lady Grizzlies (2009-10 school year) along with a few guest players did a remarkable job in representing Spencer County Middle School and the community in the U-14 open division of the Blue Grass State Games.  The Lady Grizzlies finished 3rd overall in the BGSG held on July 17th and 18th in Lexington.  Over the course of the weekend, the team scored a total of 13 goals while holding their opponents to only 3. 

  • Sherrod flap prompts look at...

    Shirley Sherrod’s firing at Dept. of Agriculture last week ignited America’s ugly history of racism into a media frenzy again. As the talking heads talked, Sherrod’s remarks reminded me of Rodney King’s “can’t we all just live together?” in 1991.

  • SCHS at dance camp

    Spencer County High School Dance Team spent this week at UDA Convention Dance Camp in Sharonville, Ohio.  They worked hard learning several new routines, as well as participating in technique and tricks/lifts classes.  The highlight of the week was joining in a Master hip-hop class taught by Brandon Bryant, a star on “So You Think You Can Dance” from season 5.
