  • 12-2 win for Lady Bears

    The Spencer County Lady Bears softball team used a trip to Eminence last week to break out of a three-game losing streak. They beat the Lady Warriors 12-2 on Thursday to improve their season’s record to 5-9, a mark that took a hit with three losses earlier in the week.

    Spencer County dropped a tough 2-1 decision to Washington County in a shortened game at the John Hardin Round Robin, then fell 7-4 on the road at Nelson County. The girls hosted Shelby County Wednesday evening and lost 8-1.

  • Walk-ons Polson and Justice

    “America loves a winner, will not tolerate a loser. Americans love to fight. Americans love the sting of battle. We admire the best marble shooter, best ball players, toughest boxers.”

                 – George C. Scott, from the movie “Patton”

    We do love winners. Double when an underdog rises above projections of dot.com experts.

    Come October, pole-opposite to one-and-done-ism, will be the come-on-stage story-line about Jason Polson and Elisha Justice.

  • Spring is great time to fish rip...

    One thing just about any man- made reservoir has is rip rap. This is also a man made structure. Rip rap is the large 7 to 10 inches in diameter rocks along bridges. Rip rap is also along areas that may have erosions. Rip rap is a key structure in the spring and fall.

  • Bears baseball

    An extra inning rally by visiting Fort Knox snapped Spencer County’s three-game winning streak last week as the visiting Eagles topped the Bears 6-2 in nine innings on Friday. The lost brought an end to an otherwise successful week on the baseball diamond.

    The winning streak started the week before with a 12-1 victory at Eminence, and continued Wednesday with a 6-0 shutout over Bullitt Central on the road. Spencer County then saw their bats come alive as they exploded for 25 runs in a 25-2 rout over host Louisville Valley on Thursday.

    It is now time to look for those pre spawn and spawning bass. This is when bass fishing is awesome. It is when the bass are feeding in the shallows and the action is fast and furious.

  • Goodbye Johnny Ballgame

    Flash, flair and fun – John Wall’s game came in technicolor with a Wow! factor and Kentucky fans loved it all and embraced the kid who brought it.

    Even at one and done he was the best. Good bye, Johnny Ballgame.
