  • Outdoors - Wildlife officials...

    Spring turkey hunting is slipping into position before daybreak and sitting still as the sun eases over the hills.

    It is breaking the silence with a call and getting a response that sends a shock of excitement down your spine. It is coaxing a love-struck gobbler closer and keeping your wits as it struts into range.

  • Bears find first win at Trimble

     

    The Spencer County Bears baseball team got off to a rough 0-3 start, and traveled to Trimble County Saturday looking for their first win. They got it with a big 12-2 victory over the Raiders. The boys began the season last week with a 7-4 loss at North Bullitt, followed by a 8-1 loss at Fairdale and a close 7-6 loss to Kentucky Country Day on Thursday.  The boys finally get to play at home this week, including a Thursday matchup with Bullitt Central.

  • JV softball wins tournament

     

    While the varsity began their season this week, the Spencer County Lady Bears softball team got the season off to a very positive start, winning a six-team tournament with wins over Shelby County and Butler over the weekend.

    The Lady Bears opened the tournament with a 7-2 victory over Butler on Friday, with Emily Cole and Elizabeth Vannatta starring at the plate with home runs, and Elisabeth Huckleberry limiting the Lady Bulldogs from the mound.

  • In March, anything can happen

    The best and most exciting four days in sports just concluded Sunday night. The first two rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament proves that in the world of sports, almost anything can happen. Here’s a few take-aways:

    • March Madness is known for upsets, and the opening round is where many of these bracket busters take place. This year, there were few real surprises. Only five lower-seeded teams won games, and even some of them, such as Middle Tennessee, were not really shockers.

  • Outdoors - Largemouth being...

    The Fisheries Division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources plans to remove smaller largemouth bass from Beaver Lake in Anderson County to improve the quality of bass and sunfish. The removed bass will be released into Boltz Lake in Grant County and Taylorsville Lake in Spencer, Anderson and Nelson counties.

  • Outdoors - Spring is the best...

     

    Spring break for many conjures thoughts of traveling somewhere warm and catnapping on a beach between rounds of golf.

    A staycation sounds much better if you’re a muskellunge angler from Kentucky. The state’s muskellunge fishery has earned a reputation that extends beyond its borders, and experienced anglers know spring is one of the can’t-miss times of the year.

  • Will Lady Bears rise continue?

     

    When Brian Glass inquired about the opening for the head softball coach at Spencer County High School, just about every question he asked had a positive answer.

    He wanted to know about the players he would be inheriting. He was told that most of the girls off last year’s 22-15 team would be returning, a year-older and ready to build off last year’s success.

  • Bears fielding new team after...

     

    The Spencer County High School baseball team will surely not face any obstacle on the field tougher than the one they’ve endured recently with the loss of a teammate.

    Junior Joseph Sheeley was killed in a car accident earlier this month and as the team prepared the new season, they had to lay down their bats and gloves and mourn the loss of the popular teammate and classmate. Such a traumatic event can be tough, but it can also bring a team closer together.

  • Outdoors - Local area offers...

     

    Winter days in the 60s make for crowded boat ramps and golf courses during a time of year usually spent indoors.
    Everything, nature wise, seems a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. Buds show on lilac bushes, green grass already grows in bunches and the sound of lawn mowers permeates an afternoon backyard barbecue.

    The rare winter temperatures may alter white bass spawning runs as well.
