  • Young Bears drop first three

    Spencer County Coach Jacob Bamore knew his young Bears might struggle out the gate this season, but his emphasis isn’t on how they begin, but how they end as he faces the task of building a young team into a confident squad by year’s end.

  • Western pulls a stunner over No...

    As ugly, but important as Kentucky wins over Kansas State and West Virginia were, Western Kentucky’s stunner against No. 3 Louisville was handsome in patience, smarts, efficiency and toughness. Signature win for coach Ken McDonald and brag-rights feather-in-the-cap for the Hilltoppers.

    More, WKU’s win is a reminder for those struck with fat-head disease, and reduces the perceived distance between No. 3s and 2s in America and the ‘beam-us-up-Scotty,’ types in Sagarin ‘others’ compilations.

  • Bears begin season with...

    Tip-off Tuesday was last night and the Spencer County Bears and Lady Bears were both in action.

    It’s going to be an interesting basketball season with the ladies expecting to contend and the boys hoping they can surprise.

    There are newcomers expected to play a big role on both teams, and returning starters who will be asked to step up even more than they did last year.

    LADIES FIRST

  • A change of seasons

    The changing of the seasons is at hand.

    Football is winding down across the state and soon the sounds of squeaking sneakers and bouncing balls will be echoing through high school gyms across Kentucky.

  • A thankful heart during the...

    From here, the holiday spirit begins with most precious of all things ... your time.” Thank you.

    Above all else on the thankful list, our troops. Then ...

    1. Our Commonwealth had newspaper publisher Tom Gish 82 years. The Mountain Eagle publisher in Whitesburg who died last week was a hero and beacon of straight-forward, honest journalism. Fitting that his alma mater University of Kentucky created a Gish Award in 2004 to honor Tom and wife Pat. What higher praise for a person of words than recognition for courage, integrity and tenacity in journalism?

  • Stallions Mighty Mites rumble...

    A combined team of Spencer County Stallions Mighty Mites and PeeWees competed in the River City Rumble this past weekend at Southern High School. They defeated both the Derby City Cardinals & Valley Vikings. They lost to a team from Indianapolis. Jake Phillips won MVP of both winning games and Kalen Temple received a trophy for Hardest Hit in the Indy game. The team played excellant and shows the talent the PeeWee team will have next season for the Stallions. The team was coached by Mark Huckleberry, Scott Lawson, John Phillips, Stan Shivers and Tommy Shelburne.

  • Going to state

    The SCHS girls cross country team will advance to the AA State Championship November 15 after capturing the Regional Runner-Up title this past weekend at McNeely Lake Park. Cory Kleinjan and Sam Meredith also advance and will represent SCHS in spite of their full team not qualifying.

  • Deserving of a winning commitment

    Overnight success is a rare occurrence. Instead, reaching a goal takes time and slow, gradual and determined progress. The Spencer County High School football program seems to be a model for that truth as it wrapped up its sixth regular season last week before beginning a playoff run this Friday night.

    The program began almost as a novelty. Hundreds of fans showed up for a pre-season scrimmage of the team’s first JV game six years ago. Since then, excitement has never waned and the product on the field has steadily improved.
