  • Dream season ends, 23-15

     

    A spectacular high school football season came to a disappointing end Friday night for the Spencer County Bears, as they fell to John Hardin High School in Elizabethtown, 23-15.

    After a sluggish offensive start, the Bears came out in the second half with senior Logan Holbrook leading the charge. The Bears were able to finally get a one-point lead, and looked as though they might expand that lead early in the fourth.

  • Hoops on the horizon...

     

    The Spencer County High School boys basketball team had an intersquad scrimmage Saturday afternoon, which allowed fans a sneak peak at this year’s team.

    The Lady Bears also had an intersquad scrimmage. The team is young, with only one senior, but they return a lot of experienced players.

  • Sometimes, it’s more than ‘just...

     

    It’s just a game,

    We use that little phrase to console ourselves, or others, when we come out on the losing end. Often, it’s quite appropriate. In the grand scheme of things, the score will soon be forgotten, a new game or a new season will take our minds off the disappointment, and life will go on.

  • Kentucky hunters also targeting...

     

    Rural mail carriers who volunteer to help the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources reported seeing fewer rabbits along their routes this year, but hunters can still expect to encounter plenty of rabbits this season.

    “If you look back at the data, we’ve had really high numbers of rabbits, some of the highest in several years,” said Ben Robinson, small game biologist with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “There should be good numbers of rabbits on the ground, which should translate into good rabbit hunting.”

  • Bears advance with 42-6 win

     

    The first round of Kentucky high school football playoff action typically results in some lopsided scores, and Friday night was no exception as high-seeded teams easily dispatched lower-seeded opponents across the Bluegrass. In Taylorsville, that was evident with Spencer County’s 42-6 victory over Louisville Western.

  • Cross country team competes at...

     

    Spencer County cross country members joined the top runners in Kentucky Saturday for the KHSAA cross country meet at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Lindsey Bush was the lone girl participant for the Lady Bears, and finished with a very respectable time of 21:24:90 for 55th place out of nearly 200 runners.

    On the boys’ side, seven Spencer County runners competed. They finished 17th as a team out of 29 squads. Individually, their finishes out of 239 runners are as follows:

    78th place - Zach Williams - 18:02:34

  • Sports Briefs - week of November...

    Meet the Bears

    Come support the Spencer County High School Bears and Lady Bears as they prepare to tip-off their seasons. On Saturday, November 14, there will be a “Meet the Bears Night” Chili Supper that begins at 1 p.m., followed by an “Ask the Bears” event at 2 p.m. and then scrimmages that will begin at 3 p.m at the school.

    In addition to the Bears and Lady Bears, the Middle School’s girls and boys basketball teams, along with the dance and cheer teams, will also be introduced.

  • Q and A before the opening of...

     

    The Information Center at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources fields approximately 100,000 phone calls annually, and the call volume peaks from late October into early November as hunters inquire about rules and regulations for the statewide modern gun deer season. This year, it opens Nov. 14.

    An informal poll of Information Center staff members this week identified common questions about the season. Some of those questions - and answers to them - appear below.

    When does the modern gun deer season start and end in my county?

  • What to use for trophy bass...

     

    The swim jig and the swimming retrieve are now mainstays for trophy largemouth from heavy cover or weeds. They also shine for catching suspended largemouth bass in clear lakes.

    Anglers fishing the world-class smallmouth reservoirs in Kentucky and Tennessee fished a swim jig for decades, but they called it the fly and rind.

  • Runners qualify for State

     

    Members of the Spencer County Cross Country team qualified for the State Meet with an impressive showing in the Regionals held Saturday at Seneca Park in Louisville.
    For the second year in a row, the boys CC team earned a trip to the State with a fourth place finish in the 3AA regionals.
