  • UK recruiting hyped 6-9 junior...


    Kentucky is one of the schools pursuing 6-9 junior Jarred Vanderbilt, who is only 16 years old and ranked as one of the top 10 recruits in the 2017 recruiting class.

  • Tracking wildlife in the winter


    Newly fallen snow has a way of awakening the spirit of adventure in kids and grown-ups alike.

    It’s also nature’s tattletale.

    As such, a fresh blanket of snow opens a window to new discoveries by revealing which animals inhabit the landscape around us and how they use it during the winter months.

    Animal tracking in the snow exercises the body and mind, and it can be fun for the entire family.

  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson


    For the better part of two quarters, it looked as though the Spencer County Lady Bears might be on the verge of picking up a signature win as they led Anderson County 20-16 with six minutes left in the first half. However, Anderson County’s long-range shooting spurred them to an 18-3 run to end the half, including a three-pointer at the buzzer to go up 34-23 at the break, on their way to a 74-47 victory in Taylorsville Thursday night.

    “We were off to an excellent start and played well the entire game,” said Lady Bears Coach Brandy Scott.

  • Lady Bears are a work in progress


    The Spencer County Lady Bears are a work in progress, the key word being progress.

    Most of the minutes being logged for the girls are from players who are sophomores and freshmen. That means this young team is learning as they go.

    What’s impressed me about the team this year is how different players have stepped up and shown improvement.

  • KY offers year-round outdoor...


    The coldest temperatures since the last visit of the Polar Vortex late last winter dim prospects of hunting and fishing over the next week or so.

    Kentuckians are lucky as our state offers bountiful outdoor opportunities for each month of the year. Here are some productive suggestions for each month of the upcoming year.

  • Heartbreaking loss for Bears


    In front of a packed house at Lloyd G. Mullins Gymnasium, the Spencer Bears suffered a most agonizing defeat when they fell to Collins in the final seconds, 41-39 Friday night.

    The Bears held a 32-23 lead in the opening seconds of the final quarter, but Collins then connected on three straight three-pointers from the corner to tie the game at 32-32 with a little more than four minutes remaining.

    The lead then changed hands several times as the game came down to the stretch.

  • Lady Bears beat N. Oldham

    “The girls came out and battled all four quarters and played very well,” said Coach Brandy Scott. “They had fun and played great team ball.”

    She cited the play of Abby Myers and Audrey Michels in the win.
