    Three events came our way last week that touched our hearts in personal ways. Each transported us away from oil spill calamity, a perfect game that wasn’t, and other forgettables.

    First, Simon Kenton High School

    Tragedy testing the human spirit, merging with (basketball) success, and we get must see – “Rebound: A Basketball Story”.

  • Fishing derby, shooting sports...

    The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife will be hosting a fishing derby Saturday, June 12, from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the Taylorsville Lake Tailwaters.

    Typically, this event is held during Kentucky’s free fishing weekend, but was rescheduled so that it would not coincide with the Family Fun Day held last Saturday.

    Following the derby,  children are invited to enjoy lunch and free activities, including trap shooting, archery, provided by the Spencer County Fish and Game Club and the Spencer County 4-H  Shooting Sports.

  • Grizzlies take 2nd in Capitol...

    Spencer County Middle School Grizzly Football’s 7th grade team competed Saturday in the Capital City Classic 7 on 7 in Frankfort, KY. The team went undefeated in pool play and took the #1 seed. They were able to finish second to Elkhorn Middle School in the championship game that came down to several close plays. It was a great day of competition in the 7th grade squad’s first ever try in a 7 on 7 tournament.

    Two Spencer County athletes, Leigh Ellen Thomas and Mackenzie Myers, and The Heartland Rage, a traveling 14u softball team based out of Elizabethtown, went undefeated this past Memorial Day weekend in the USFA Blowout tournament in Brandenburg to win the championship in their season opener!  Thomas will be an 8th grader at SCMS and Myers will be a freshman at SCHS.

  • Spencer County Habitat for...

    Spending a relaxing day on the golf course is a dream for many golfers, but for nearly 100 golfers who will be participating in the annual Habitat Golf Scramble this weekend at Tanglewood Golf Course, it’s also a chance to make the dreams of others possible.

    The fifth annual event benefits the Spencer County Habitat for Humanity, an organization that helps to provide adequate housing for those who might otherwise be unable to obtain it through more conventional methods.

  • Reds give fans optimism ... again

    It’s the first of June and the Cincinnati Reds are tied for first place in the NL Central with St. Louis.

    In recent years June is the month when reality sets in for most Cincinnati fans, even the most optimistic of us. The Reds have teased us many times since 1990, the year they swept the World Series in four games against the favored A’s, completing a surprising wire-to-wire first place run in their division. Since that title run, success and winning records have been few and far between.

  • Bledsoe flap sets off media

    The Eric Bledsoe flap. Lemme get this straight ...

    • Linking John Calipari to Bledsoe’s high school shenanigans is a grassy knoll stretch.

    • Interesting, the quickness a New York Times story moved metro media in Kentucky to remind readers of Calipari’s two vacated Final Fours, Derrick Rose slickery getting into Memphis U, then Cal’s jump to Kentucky ahead of the NCAA police.

  • Habitat golf scramble

    Spencer County Habitat for Humanity will be hosting their fifth annual Golf Scramble at Tanglewood Golf Course on June 4 and 5. 

    Put a team together with family, friends or coworkers and join Habitat for a fun day of golf for a great cause! 

    Registration will begin Friday, June 4 at 12 p.m. with a shotgun start at 1 p.m.  Cost to play is $40 per golfer.

    On Saturday, June 5, registration will begin at 7 a.m. and the shotgun will start at 8 a.m.  Cost for golfers to play this day is $50.

  • Bears fall to Anderson 10-1

    The bats of the Spencer County Bears just couldn’t catch up to the fastball of Anderson County’s Jacob Russell Monday night as the Bears fell 10-1 in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament in Lawrenceburg.

    Russell, Anderson County’s three-sport star, proved a bit vulnerable early on, and the Bears actually took advantage in the first inning when Timmy Riley opened the game with a walk, advanced on a hit by Alex Sorrells, and then scored on a well-hit single by Steven Lear to give the Bears a 1-0 lead.
