  • COLUMN: U of L fans can’t resist...

    Bracket-busting observations.
    Disqualifying taxpayers in Fort Myers and Lee County, Fla., all those who have Florida Gulf Coast in your Sweet 16, raise your hands?
    Hmmm.
    If there is one, I’m betting odds are just as good he/she lives in Hoboken, N.J., and also owns last week’s $338 million winning lottery ticket.

  • Bears toss back-to-back no-...

    Throwing a no-hitter in baseball is one of sport’s true rarities. The Spencer County Bears baseball team made it commonplace last week as Lance Shelton and Nick Vuick tossed back-to-back no-hitters in two shutout victories this past weekend.
    “Two no-hitters on back-to-back games was pretty awesome,” said Bears Coach Steve Slaughter. “I cannot recall a no hitter in over 13 years of coaching, much less two in a row. It’s a real confidence booster.”
    So too is Spencer County’s 5-1 record that includes five straight victories.

  • Turkey hunters will encounter...

    With opening day of the statewide season just three weeks away, Kentucky turkey hunters can look forward to encountering gobblers of all ages this spring.

  • Bears off to 3-1 start

    The Spencer County Baseball Bears are off to a good start with a 3-1 record following two big wins last week on the road.
    On Saturday, the Bears traveled to Campbellsville where they finished off the Eagles 11-1 in six innings behind the starting pitching of Nick Vuick. The boys picked up two runs in the second inning and three in the third as they built an early lead. Campbellsville’s lone run came in the third, but the Bears’ offense added another run in the fourth and produced five runs in the sixth to complete the victory.

  • Lady Bears score 10-run victory

    The Spencer County Lady Bears evened their season record at 1-1 with a 10-run victory over Jeffersontown on Friday afternoon in Taylorsville.

  • COLUMN: U of L: The team nobody...

    As many as 20 teams have a legitimate chance to win the NCAA championship, basketball experts tell us. Since Kentucky Derby experts pore over equine details like scientists in Silicon Valley, before picking one Run for the Roses winner that seldom wins, isn’t it refreshing that hoops experts blab at each for hours on air then are savvy enough to pick 20 to win?
    First among any 20? Louisville.

  • COLUMN: Rupp Arena’s Gentlemen’s...

    Rupp Arena was transformed last weekend into a Gentlemen’s Quarterly. Billy Donovan almost hurried to congratulate Kentucky’s coach and players after Florida cost itself a possible number one seed in the NCAAs.
    Seven points up, the Gators squandered possessions, fired blanks and lost more than Kentucky won.
    Typically, the dean of SEC coaches made no excuses, but instead praised the Wildcats.

  • SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Season starts...

    Most people are anxious for spring, but Jimmy Thompson may be more eager than most. All winter he’s been waiting for the weather to warm up so his Spencer County Lady Bears softball team can take the field for a season that he anticipates could be the best in years.

  • Bears baseball starts season 1-1

    The Spencer County Bears baseball team opened its season last week with a 6-3 loss at North Hardin, then bounced back with a 14-6 victory at Gallatin County. The Bears were scheduled to play at Bardstown on Monday at will play at Western Hills tonight at 5. The season home opener is set for Saturday at 1 p.m. against Campbellsville.

  • Tournament aims to rid Ky. lakes...

    Twenty-one teams from Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee have signed up for the country’s first commercial fishing tournament for Asian carp. The Carp Madness Tournament is being held at Kentucky and Barkley lakes in western Kentucky March 12-13.
    “Our goal is simple: We want to purge 100 tons of carp from two of the state’s best fishing lakes,” said Ron Brooks, fisheries director for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
