  • Outdoors - Deer harvest near 140...

     

    It’s often said these are the good old days for deer hunting in Kentucky, but for those of a certain age, or new to hunting, it’s all they have ever known.

    The world was tip-toeing into a new millennium the last time Kentucky’s deer harvest did not break 100,000 for a season. The 2016-17 season cleared that mark and surpassed 130,000 for the fifth consecutive season.

    Jenna Russell, a senior at Spencer County High School, recently signed her letter of intent to play collegiately at Lindsey Wilson College. Russell, a standout for the Lady Bears, is thankful for her past coaches and teammates, and said she is planning to major in Elementary Education and wants to minor in Journalism.

  • SCMS Dancers place first

     

    The Spencer County Middle School dance team placed first recently  at the Battle of the Bluegrass dance competition held at the Frankfort Convention Center. The team went up against two other middle school hip hop dance teams and brought home the win.

  • Lady Bears fall hard

     

    Playing in front of their home crowd in the first time in nearly a month, and riding a six game winning streak, the Spencer County Lady Bears were ready to prove they could play against the premier team in the district when they hosted Anderson County Thursday night.

    What they proved is that when the other team is on fire and your own team can’t buy a basket, things can get ugly really quick. And so it was with the Lady Bear’s 57-27 loss to the Bearcats.

  • Bears upbeat despite dropping...

     

    The Spencer County Bears fell to another of the 8th Regions top teams last Tuesday night as the Oldham County Colonels dispatched the Bears 53-46 in Taylorsville.

    It was the second straight loss for the Bears after they had won eight of their previous nine games. However, Coach Jason Burns is still high on his team.

    “It’s been a tough week, but also very positive as well,” said Burns.

  • Talking March Madness in January

    We’re just now in the middle of January, but those whose jobs are to gin up interest in postseason college basketball are already releasing mock brackets, pairing and seedings for the NCAA Division I basketball tournament.
    With so much of the season left to play, it seems a bit premature, but sportswriters seem to have nothing better to do between games than to guess about what’s to come later this season and even next season. (Football writers have already issued a top 25 for a sport that won’t see its first game for another eight months).

  • Fan of the Week

     

    Two-year-old Brady Burns pointed toward the court during last week’s Spencer County Bears basketball game against Oldham County. Brady has a special rooting interest in the games, as his dad, Jason Burns, is head coach of the Bears.

  • Girls down Collins, improve to 2...

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears are on a roll. Winners of five in a row, the girls got perhaps their most important win of the season with a 57-44 victory at district rival Collins Friday night and are now 9-7 on the season.

    In front of a large crowd in Shelbyville Friday, the girls got off to a slow start, trailing 7-2 before Audrey Michels knocked down a jumper and Alyssa Howie buried a three to knot the score at 7-7. Another trey by Howie would then put the Lady Bears up 10-7 to end the quarter.

  • Outdoors - Safely familiarize...

     

    Lots of hunters receive a new rifle over the holidays or take advantage of the subsequent sales to add to their collection.
    The impulse is to immediately dash off to the shooting range. Fighting back that urge and instead taking time to familiarize yourself with your new rifle is a good first step toward safe and responsible ownership.
