  • 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.

  • Stallions commemorate 10 years...

    Football season will soon be upon us, meaning that the hard work begins now, in the midst of the heat and humidity of mid-summer. You can see that if you drive by one of the practice fields in the community this week and watch boys in sweat-drenched shirts blocking, passing and tackling.

  • Lady Bears take third in pre-...

    The 2010-2011 SCHS Lady Bears traveled to Versailles this past weekend to open their season in varsity scrimmage play.

    Saturday they battled through the high temperatures to a 4-2 win over Owensboro and a 0-1 loss to Male. Sunday morning  they came out flat against Beechwood 0-1.

    In the final game, they won a decisive victory over Paducah Tilghman 2-0 to bring home the bronze medal.

  • Kentucky state champions

    The Spencer County 16U Senior League softball team, Static Shock, won the Kentucky State Championship Games haeld in London, Kentucky last week.  They won the final game against Oldham County last Monday with a score of 11-0, ending the game early in the fifth by the 10 run rule. 

  • National competitors: Rage takes...

    Spencer County’s softball superstars Mackenzie Myers and Leigh Ellen Thomas helped their Hartland Rage fast-pitch softball team place third out of 79 teams who competed at the 2010 United States Fast-Pitch Association World Series this past weekend.

    The traveling softball team battled their way out of the losers bracket by winning 10 games in a row. The Hartland Rage now has a record of 42 wins and only seven losses.

  • Local players battle for...

    Five Spencer county youth wrap up their baseball season in fine fashion.  The five boys,  grades 7-9, competed in “The Reel Baseball Experience” 13U tournament located at the Indiana University Southeast this past weekend.  The boys were given the opportunity to practice and compete on the IUS college field. 

  • LeBron moves in, David Dick...

    A view not far from Plum Lick.

    David Dick, a man of words as matter-of-fact as jar fly talk in July, left us last week.

    A writer who seemed to grow better, more endearing as a Kentucky Every Man, as his life grew more difficult, David Dick battled to the end. Like many, I was an ardent admirer with sense enough to leave the eloquence in describing what Dick’s writings meant to Jim Wayne Miller, professor and author at Western Kentucky University.

  • Radio connects baseball's...

    It’s the middle of July and most American sports fans find themselves pacing the floors in front of their flat-screen television sets waiting for the month to pass and August to finally get here.

     Baseball is in the middle of its long 162-game regular season. While purists like me love to scan the boxscores and check the standings each day, many modern fans honestly tune out until late August when the pennant races really start to heat up – or otherwise known as the time when the Orioles are typically mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.
