  • Bears struggle with grueling...

    The Spencer County Bears boys’ soccer team is off to a rough start, but much of that is due to a very rough early-season schedule. Combine that with the fact that the program is short on players and experience, and it’s no surprise that this may indeed be a learning year for the team.

    Spencer County’s dance and cheer teams won accolades Saturday at the America’s Best  Game Day Championships at the Kentucky State Fair.

  • Volley season continues

  • Stumbling blocks to football...

    High school football is in full swing. The college game is preparing to march onto center stage, but Sports Department’s other stuff keeps raining on the parade.

     To wit:

    • Media fascination with Brett Favre.

    • Pennat races. Cubs? Stick a fork in ‘em, again.

    • Rick Pitino jokes.

    • Media fascination with Michael Vick.

    • NCAA punishments.

    And, John Calipari.
