  • Spencer County Fish and Game...

    Safety will be the word of the day Saturday as the Spencer County Fish and Game Club hosts an open house and safety day at the club located at 1520 Little Mount Road (Ky. 44 on the four lane just before the entrance to Tanglewood).

    Local fisherman Joe Paul Smith caught this largemouth bass on Feb. 24 in Polk City, Fla. The fish weighed 10 pounds, 1.5 ounces and was 25 inches long.
    Smith was accompanied by Ron Call of Polk City and Clayton Call of North Port, Fla.
    After the fish was weighed and measured, it was released.

  • Bears on six-game winning streak

    The Spencer County Bears packed up for Florida this weekend riding on a six-game winning streak following their 4-1 victory over visiting Washington County on Thursday afternoon.

  • COLUMN: Barmore brought first...

    Jacob Barmore was 22 years old when he returned to Spencer County as the youngest head coach in Kentucky high school basketball back in 2004. It was a rough first season for the rookie coach – not only because his team only won seven games, but he also suffered serious injuries in a car accident that caused him to miss several games and left him in pain on the sidelines much of the year.

  • PHOTO: Lady Bears fall to...

    Spencer County’s Katie McKinney makes contact with a pitch during a recent game for the Lady Bears softball team. The girls dropped a tough 5-4 decision at Bullitt Central last Thursday and will be back in action after Spring Break when they host Trimble County on April 11.
     

  • COLUMN: Will Catlanta be Big...

    Observations from the notebook.
    Louisville’s march through Rupp Arena, Indianapolis and on to Catlanta has turned Big Blue Nation and Hoosiers into the loudest silent majority since ESPN shut down Dick Vitale.
    Who’s going to stop the Cards? If Rick Pitino’s team plays the next (possible) 80 minutes the way it played the last 80, and a Kevin Ware battle cry carries on, then neither Michigan nor Syracuse will flag down this flight.
    Two under-card dramas will play out at this Final Four.

  • PHOTO: Champions!

  • COLUMN: U of L fans can’t resist...

    Bracket-busting observations.
    Disqualifying taxpayers in Fort Myers and Lee County, Fla., all those who have Florida Gulf Coast in your Sweet 16, raise your hands?
    Hmmm.
    If there is one, I’m betting odds are just as good he/she lives in Hoboken, N.J., and also owns last week’s $338 million winning lottery ticket.

  • Bears toss back-to-back no-...

    Throwing a no-hitter in baseball is one of sport’s true rarities. The Spencer County Bears baseball team made it commonplace last week as Lance Shelton and Nick Vuick tossed back-to-back no-hitters in two shutout victories this past weekend.
    “Two no-hitters on back-to-back games was pretty awesome,” said Bears Coach Steve Slaughter. “I cannot recall a no hitter in over 13 years of coaching, much less two in a row. It’s a real confidence booster.”
    So too is Spencer County’s 5-1 record that includes five straight victories.

  • Turkey hunters will encounter...

    With opening day of the statewide season just three weeks away, Kentucky turkey hunters can look forward to encountering gobblers of all ages this spring.
