  • Elk harvest was a “...

    Joe Cotter, of Mt. Eden, posed with his prized bull elk harvested October 13 during the second week of the Kentucky Elk Hunt.

    The elk antlers had six points on the left side and seven points on the right side making it a 6x7 in hunter lingo. Cotter said the animal was 330 inch B&C and he hopes it will go in the record book as one of the top 10 in Kentucky. B&C is short for Boone and Crockett – the official trophy scoring organization in North America.

    “This was a hunt of a life time and the largest animal I have ever taken,” said Cotter.

    The youth football league would like to send congratulations to the coaches, players and cheerleaders for a season well done. 

  • Bears earning respect of Central...

    The Spencer County Bears began the season by building a reputation as a team that could compete against anybody. While they ended their regular season on a down note with some lopsided defeats, they closed out their 2009 campaign by gaining back some of that respect in a hard-fought 56-36 loss to two-time defending State Champion Louisville Central Friday night.

    “I am very proud of the way our men battled against a very good Central team,” said first year Head Coach Wes Napper. “I think we gave them more of a game than what they had initially thought.”
