  • 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.

  • Outdoors - Road open for Salt...


    Road access to a section of Salt River above Taylorsville Lake is now open for vehicles in preparation for the coming white bass spawning run.

    The gated accesses at Palmer Road and Old River Road off KY 44 at Taylorsville Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will remain open from daylight until dark through late summer, except for closures during youth and spring turkey seasons.

  • Outdoors - Up and coming...

    The Fisheries Division’s Fishing Forecast each year presents its “Up and Coming Fisheries,” a savory menu of potential fishing trips for anglers to try in the coming year.

  • Girls rally, but fall 59-55


    With just a few seconds left on the clock, sophomore Alyssa Howie lay on the floor in tears after colliding with an Owen County opponent. After a few moments, she was on her feet and back in the game. The pain in her shoulder didn’t stop her from draining a three-pointer with just 10 seconds left on the clock. But it was too little, too late, as Owen County hit free throws down the stretch to secure a 59-55 victory in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament hosted by Oldham County.

  • Girls earn trip to Regional


    The season rolls on for at least another week for the Spencer County Lady Bears, who were runners-up in last week’s District Tournament, earning them a spot in the 8th Region Tournament where they were scheduled to take on Owen County Tuesday night at 8 p.m. in the first round.

    The Lady Bears had an exciting come-from-behind win last Wednesday to secure their advancement, besting host Collins 50-47.

  • Boys struggle with Anderson,...


    It was clear from the beginning that it was going to be a rough night for the Spencer County Bears, as they struggled offensively against a very physical Anderson County squad, scoring only nine points in the first half on their way to a 52-35 loss in the first round of the 30th District Tournament last Wednesday night at Collins High School.
