  • COLUMN: Silence makes for...

    If you ever want to teach an object lesson about darkness, head to a cave. Walk or crawl as far back into it as possible to where absolutely no light at all is visible. Then, light a single small candle. It’s amazing how blackening dark can actually be.
    If you ever want to teach an object lesson about silence, head to a high school basketball holiday tournament.

  • Lady Bears fall in opening round...

    It wasn’t a merry return to the court two days after Christmas for the Spencer County Lady Bears, as they fell in their opening round matchup of the Whitefield Academy tournament to Scott High School, 83-55 Thursday afternoon.

  • Bears dealt second loss in...

    Three days after demolishing Nelson County in perhaps their best game of the season, the Spencer County Bears felt the bitter sting of revenge when the Cardinals got payback in a 63-61 win in overtime during the second round of the Sarah Barger Tournament at North Bullitt.

  • Lady Bears give best effort, but...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears took a tough 62-59 district loss on the road at Shelby County Tuesday, but may have gained some confidence in what first-year coach David Marion described as their “best performance by far this season.”

  • After Nelson win, Bears move to...

    The Spencer County Bears improved to 5-1 on the season with an impressive 74-49 win over Nelson County Tuesday night in Taylorsville. It was the best performance of the season  as the Bears got off to a quick start and never looked back.

  • COLUMN: Christmas spirit is...

    The Newtown tragedy has stolen a core-something out of our Christmas. Exacerbated by a parade of assault weapon images on TV, Apocalypse 2012 doom, and the fiscal cliff, woes have tempered our joy this year. The season-to-be-jolly has a deep bruise on it.
    In my lifetime, only the lingering grief after John F. Kennedy’s assassination  before Thanksgiving 1963 was as numbing, and weighed so heavily on the American spirit as the Sandy Hook tragedy.
