  • Sand-lot baseball: a far-fetched...

    It’s still not officially summer but the heat and humidity of mid-June makes one dread the coming July and August. But save for a two-week dead period mandated by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association, student-athletes from Spencer County High will be busy with camps and workouts in the coming months as they prepare for the upcoming seasons.

  • Triathlon Sunday at lake

    A triathlon will be held at Taylorsville State Park Sunday beginning at 8 a.m. Spectators are welcome to watch competitors swim 1500 meters, bike 40 kilometers and run 10 kilometers. The swim is the first leg of the triathlon, and the slowest, and will last approximately 50 minutes.  The race will be over by noon. 

  • SCHS’s Smith is...

    There’s now official confirmation of what opposing football teams have known all along about Spencer County’s Erico Smith – He’s fast!

    Smith became Spencer County’s first ever track and field state champion last week as he took first place in the KHSAA 2A 100 meter dash with a time of 10.98 seconds, finishing two one-hundreths of a second ahead of 2nd place finisher Rashad Brown of Paducah Tilghman.

  • Simon Kenton, Odie Smith and a...

    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.

  • 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.
