  • COLUMN: A season to remember

    Last Wednesday’s rainy, gray skies surely didn’t help the mood around Spencer County following the disappointing loss the night before in the finals of the 8th Region Tournament. After a huge build-up and dreams of going to Rupp Arena were crushed in a 70-50 loss, you can’t blame players and fans for being a bit depressed.

  • Grizzlies are conference champs
  • COLUMN: Kentucky sore about 4-...

    Hand-wringing Kentucky fans should take pause from “we got hosed again!” and consider the short guy at Morehead.
    Coach Don Tindall lobbied for more respect, a higher seed for his OVC champion Eagles. Recalling “be careful what you wish for,” he got the latter. A 13-seed and all but certain one and done, Morehead faces the team nobody wants to play this week, the Louisville Cardinals.


  • Wrestlers finish among top at...

Price won first place in his weight bracket. Thompson finished third place. Fern Creek as a team finished 4th place.

  • Middle school cheerleaders enjoy...

    The Spencer County Middle School cheerleaders had an exciting season that ended Jan. 29.

  • Dance team places first at state

    Amid the hoopla of Bears basketball, the Spencer County High School Dance Team is making a name for itself, too.


    Spencer County fisherman Brian Raisor recently caught this huge Asian carp at Taylorsville Lake. Much to Raisor’s surprise, a lamprey — an eel-like species — was attached to the fish. According to Raisor’s mother, Mary Raisor, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife sent the lamprey on to Campbellsville University for further study. Neither species is a lake native and the KDFW is investigating further.

  • COLUMN: For teams in Kentucky,...

    For Morehead State (in), Louisville, Bellarmine, Georgetown, and at this writing, possibly Western Kentucky, drum roll, please.
    This is it! Michael Jackson crooned. Tournament time.
    Morehead will wait to see if its next foe is Kansas, Duke or Ohio State.
    The best tournament could be the Big East and UofL is a major reason why.

  • Miller leads Bears to victory...

    Last year as a freshman, Brandon Miller had both the basketball and his team’s season in his hands in the closing seconds of the Bears’ 30th District tournament against Anderson County and his team down one point. His buzzer-beating shot missed the mark, ending an otherwise successful season on a down note.
