  • Lady Bears nearly upset North...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears have struggled all season and the decision last week by two seniors to hang up their sneakers for the rest of the year wasn’t exactly the news Coach Daniel Cox needed to hear.

    Cox did not want to discuss the decision by seniors Chelsea Gross, the team’s leading scorer, and point-guard Ashley Wiley, who last week announced they were quitting, other than to thank them for their efforts. “Both are great girls with wonderful futures ahead of them. I wish them nothing but good fortune and success,” he said.

  • Kentucky and No. 1 spot, a...

    Ranked No. 1 a curse for Kentucky?

    Such heresy. Might as well ask a Yankee if pin stripes are bad luck, or Crimson Tide man about an elephant. Kentucky fans consider No. 1 a divine right.

    A few views from the sunny side of blue.

    • Seven years since top spot rare air, and being the last unbeaten makes it doubly delicious.

    • Taking an opponent’s best shot is nothing new for Big Blue. Taking an opponent’s best shot and making it shoot 30 percent is the proper antidote.

  • Bears get TV time as WLKY&...

    After presenting the SCHS basketball team with their team of the week trophy, WLKY’s Keith Farmer captures the celebration that later appeared on television.

  • Dunbar scores 1000th point

    Logan Dunbar’s 1,000th career point came in familiar fashion. He battled for a rebound, fought off defenders and a foul under the basket and scored early in the fourth quarter in Thursday night’s win over Trimble County to reach the milestone.

    It was a fitting way for the junior to reach the mark, as the majority of his points have come in blue-collar fashion over the course of the last three years.

  • Bears off to best start in 20...

    The Spencer County Bears continue to be one of the surprise stories in high school basketball, racking up two more victories last week to improve their record to 13-2 on the season with wins over North Bullitt and Trimble County last week.

    On Tuesday, the Bears welcomed North Bullitt, a team they had already played twice on the season, splitting games with the Eagles.

  • Kentucky basketball rises to No...

    Kentucky basketball climbed to the pinnacle this week.

    Polls. Associated Press, USA Today, Sagarin, pick a poll. Forget unbeaten Texas.

    Any poll without Kentucky at the top, goes begging for credibility.

    Here’s why. Last Sunday, UK’s coaches, players, former players, boosters, and local television, put 18-0 and adulations aside and raised more than a million dollars for Haiti relief.

    “It’s emotional,” John Calipari said. He’s right.

  • Cold shooting plagues Lady Bears...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears had a tough week, dropping two lopsided decisions and now face a tough four-game road stretch.

    The girls welcomed Bullitt East to Taylorsville on Wednesday, only to fall to the 6th region power by the score of 56-17.

  • Brooks deserves tribute

    All who pass this way leave a mark if only a bad tattoo. A few stay awhile and leave an indelible one. Rich Brooks did.

    Those who coach football at Kentucky don’t stay long or they dig fox holes, wear combat helmets and deal with ghosts of disasters past ... Hal Mumme, John Ray ... Bill Curry.

    Brooks climbed out of his fox hole last week, took off his helmet, gave us a sunshine smile, hugged the Missus and said he was retired.
