  • Do we hear the silent scream?

    If you’ve tried to talk to me the past week or so, there’s a good chance I never heard a word you said.
    My hearing is terrible, and has been for many years. For the past five years, I’ve worn hearing aids and I woke up one morning last week to discover our new dog had come into our room, somehow knocked my hearing aids off the nightstand, and chewed them up to the point where they where useless.

  • Bills begin moving

    Words cannot begin to express the shock and sadness felt throughout the Commonwealth and around the country on Tuesday when an active shooter opened fire at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky, taking two innocent students’ lives and injuring 18 others. It was a senseless act of violence committed by another student that we cannot even begin to understand.

  • High School officials play...

    They don’t normally make the headlines, their names are not in the box scores unless at the very bottom, and they don’t make the all-star teams, but perhaps the most essential individuals in high school sports are the contest officials.

  • More than 136,000 deer harvested...

    Looking at the total number of deer harvested by hunters in Kentucky during the 2017-18 season, it would appear nothing was out of the ordinary.

    The season ended earlier this month. When it did, hunters had combined to take more than 136,000 deer across the state, making it the sixth consecutive season with a harvest total greater than 130,000 and the fifth highest total on record in Kentucky.

  • Missed free throws doom Lady...


  • Lady Bears top Collins, 53-41


  • Pack the gym for Friday’s double...

    The holidays are over, we’re in the middle of a brutal arctic cold spell, and  the early January doldrums can lend way to cabin fever.

    If you’re needing to get out of the house, Friday night affords you a perfect opportunity to enjoy a few hours of really good basketball while supporting our local teams in Spencer County.

    The Bears and Lady Bears will host Collins in a 30th District doubleheader, with the girls tipping off at 6 p.m. and the boys following at around 7:30 p.m.

  • Lady Bears finish third in...


  • Bears look impressive in Fla.


    The Bears knew two things heading into Christmas break: they can shoot the three ball and they have some young players who will be key this season.

    Game 1:

    It did not take long for Spencer County to find their rhythm in Florida. Thirty seconds into the game freshman Sam Conley got the Bears going with an And-1.  Soon after, Jackson Cole started heating up from behind the arc and a Sam Conley to Jake Whitlock connection for a layup gave the Bears an early lead over the Hornets from Roswell, Georgia.

  • Winter trout fishing

    Consistency is a trait all anglers love in a body of water. Most lakes and rivers in Kentucky go through seasonal temperature swings that make fishing tough during the hottest and coldest months of the year.

    The Cumberland River below Lake Cumberland fishes as consistently as any body of water in Kentucky. The water temperatures of the Cumberland River at Burkesville ranged from 55 degrees Dec. 11 to 53.5 degrees Dec. 14 to around 53 degrees Dec. 18.
