  • Marksbury to lead SCHS football...

    It will be six months before Coach Mike Marksbury runs onto the field at Spencer County High School as the new football head man, but he’s already been busy laying the groundwork for what he hopes will be a successful tenure.

    A native of Nelson County, Marksbury has several years of coaching experience, including assistant coaching positions at Nelson County High School, Ft. Knox and Mercer County and has developed many close relationships with a number of successful coaches across the state.

  • Unstoppable: Bears take down...

    Playing in front of a standing room only crowd, the Spencer County Bears wrapped up an undefeated district schedule with a win over Shelby County Tuesday night, securing the top seed in the 30th District Tournament that will begin next Monday.

    Despite suffering through a tough season that has resulted in only four wins, Shelby County put up a tougher-than-expected battle and made the Bears play a full four quarters to earn the milestone victory.

  • SCHS to host 30th district...

    Six straight nights of basketball at Spencer County High School will begin next week and local fans hope it will end with the Bears and Lady Bears advancing to the next round of postseason play.

    Spencer County is hosting the 30th District Tournament beginning Monday night and pairings and ticket information have been released. The small gym (capacity listed at 1,350) means Bear fans might need to arrive early to ensure they’ll be there to cheer on the blue.

  • Spencer's sixth man...

    Andrew Dockery has gone all year without scoring a goal, gaining a yard, making a pass or sinking a free-throw.
    However, there may not be a more valuable student for Spencer County athletics than this senior who has made it his mission to fire up the home crowd.

    Dockery is easy to recognize. Though slight of build, he stands out with his blue and white wig and his high-energy effort to get fellow students and other fans behind their team whether it’s at home or away.

  • King reaches semi-finals of...

    Derrick King might not have been able to snag the ACO King of Cornhole world championship this year, but the 13-year-old Taylorsvillian came very close. He was hoping to get the big win, but considering that he is one of the youngest professionals playing internationally, he has plenty of time for improvement.

    “Everybody was talking about this 13 year old,” said King’s mother, Tabitha King, who said she was very proud of her son.

  • Super bowl wasn't super...

    Just like in years past, the Super Bowl last Sunday attracted millions and millions to the television, but unlike some years, this year the best television occurred when the two teams were actually playing.

    The Packers and Steelers engaged in an entertaining game that came down to the wire and the game itself was actually the highlight of an otherwise so-so evening of television.
    The commercials were disappointing and it seems that advertisers seem to try way too hard to impress or get a laugh. Sometimes simpler is better.
