  • Spencer County Habitat for...

    Spending a relaxing day on the golf course is a dream for many golfers, but for nearly 100 golfers who will be participating in the annual Habitat Golf Scramble this weekend at Tanglewood Golf Course, it’s also a chance to make the dreams of others possible.

    The fifth annual event benefits the Spencer County Habitat for Humanity, an organization that helps to provide adequate housing for those who might otherwise be unable to obtain it through more conventional methods.

  • Reds give fans optimism ... again

    It’s the first of June and the Cincinnati Reds are tied for first place in the NL Central with St. Louis.

    In recent years June is the month when reality sets in for most Cincinnati fans, even the most optimistic of us. The Reds have teased us many times since 1990, the year they swept the World Series in four games against the favored A’s, completing a surprising wire-to-wire first place run in their division. Since that title run, success and winning records have been few and far between.

  • Bledsoe flap sets off media

    The Eric Bledsoe flap. Lemme get this straight ...

    • Linking John Calipari to Bledsoe’s high school shenanigans is a grassy knoll stretch.

    • Interesting, the quickness a New York Times story moved metro media in Kentucky to remind readers of Calipari’s two vacated Final Fours, Derrick Rose slickery getting into Memphis U, then Cal’s jump to Kentucky ahead of the NCAA police.

  • Habitat golf scramble

    Spencer County Habitat for Humanity will be hosting their fifth annual Golf Scramble at Tanglewood Golf Course on June 4 and 5.

  • Bears fall to Anderson 10-1

    The bats of the Spencer County Bears just couldn’t catch up to the fastball of Anderson County’s Jacob Russell Monday night as the Bears fell 10-1 in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament in Lawrenceburg.

    Russell, Anderson County’s three-sport star, proved a bit vulnerable early on, and the Bears actually took advantage in the first inning when Timmy Riley opened the game with a walk, advanced on a hit by Alex Sorrells, and then scored on a well-hit single by Steven Lear to give the Bears a 1-0 lead.

  • Spencer County surrenders late...

    The Shelby County Lady Rockets broke open a close game with three runs in the fifth inning to secure a first round win over Spencer County in the 30th District Softball Tournament held in Lawrenceburg Monday  night.

  • Taylorsville’s Run by...

    The 2nd Annual Taylorsville Summer Run by the Lake was held Saturday at Taylorsville Lake State Park. The event is a fundraiser for the Spencer County elementary level cross-country team.

    “We had another great race this year,” said Coach Josh Seabolt. “Despite the hard rain from the night before, the turnout was still amazing.”

    Seabolt said that the course was very muddy and caused many runners to slide down the hills instead of run. 

  • Paying tribute to Red Bird High

    What is statewide special about Red Bird? Everything. The school at Beverly in Bell County will march into history next month as the latest in a long parade of community schools that are no more.

    Nestled at the toe of Daniel Boone National Forest, Red Bird High will graduate its final senior class, unless funding is found to sustain a school that opened during Woodrow Wilson’s presidency, 1921.

  • Strikers make a comeback

     The Spencer County Strikers, a U12 boy’s team with the Spencer County Soccer Association, were crowned JCYSL tournament champs. 

    The Strikers lost in the championship round of the JCYSL tournament last season 1-0.  This time they didn’t overlook any of their opponents or the muddy conditions.

    The Strikers outscored their opponents 20-3 while defeating teams from South Nelson, Okolona, and Fern Creek.
