  • Joker Phillips’ rise...

    Fired, football coaches at Washington and Kansas State. Add Phil Fulmer at Tennessee and Tommy Bowden at Clemson to list of first to fall from the coaches carousel. An Associated Press story surfaced quickly. Ignoring Fulmer and Bowden, it centered on Ty Willingham and Ron Prince firings and linked them to Barack Obama’s election. Then gave pulpit to the Institute of Diversity and Ethics in Sports.

  • Washington Co. stops Bears in...

    Teams with their playoff future secure may use a final regular-season game as a chance to fine-tune their game. But on Friday night, the Spencer County Bears discovered they may be in dire need of some major repairs after grinding to a halt at Washington County during a 45-7 loss to the Commanders.

  • Ugly end to Bears’...

    Spencer County’s football season came to an ugly end Friday night as they suffered a 32-19 loss to Louisville Shawnee in the opening round of the 3A playoffs in a game that exposed the consequences of a poor finish.

    There was the failure to finish a game-opening drive by the Bears after they drove the ball to inside the one-yard line of Shawnee, a failure to finish the season strong and a failure to finish with class as the game ended with a brawl brought on by poor sportsmanship on both sides.

    Spencer County marathon runner, Joe Paul Smith, recently traveled to Akron, Ohio to compete in the sixth running of the Akron Half Marathon.

    Smith completed the 13.1-mile race in 1:52:59. Due to the higher than normal temperatures, the pace was slower than typical marathons. Smith, a member of the Kentucky Hill Runners, is scheduled to run next in the Chicago Marathon.

  • Overlap season, reasons why mid-...

    Frost is on the punkin, woolen sweaters are back and an extra blanket too. High autumn in Kentucky ... clock hands turn back, sugar maple are wearing red, yellows and brown, that aroma is spiced tea, and good memories get a replay.

    This week, a few reasons why November here is like no place else. Overlap.

    1. High school football players have decals splashed across their helmets and state title on their minds. College dudes are wearing whiskers and heavy tapped ankles. That crescendo in the distance ... bouncing basketballs.
