  • Football musings on a bye week

    A bye week for the Spencer County Bears meant a Friday night free of high school football for me. Sort of.

    My wife and I enjoyed a late night showing of the new movie “Woodlawn” Friday evening. The film is based on the true story of a high school rivalry in the early 1970’s amidst the tension of integration in Birmingham, Alabama.

  • Bears back in action Friday,...

    Spencer County’s hope for winning the 4th District title ended last week when Shelby County beat Collins, 44-0. However, the season is far from over.

    The 8-1 Bears will host Henry County Friday night in the final game of the regular season. Kick off is at 7:30 p.m. The Wildcats are having a good season as well, with a 7-2 record. However, they are coming off a 49-0 loss to powerful Louisville Central last week.

  • KDFW mark accomplishments during...


    A new feature on the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ website at fw.ky.gov is a document detailing the department’s accomplishments toward its Strategic Plan over the last two years under the leadership of Commissioner Gregory K. Johnson.

  • Sports can be more than just a...

    As impressive as the Spencer County Bear’s football season has been, equally inspiring has been the support of the community for the team.

    The latest example came on Friday afternoon as the Bears boarded their buses and headed for their game with North Oldham. Once they made the turn away from school, they began seeing fans standing in a steady rain, holding signs and banners, waving and cheering the team as they made their way north on KY 55 behind a police escort that also included an ambulance and fire trucks.




    The Lady Bears dropped the first game 25-18, came back to get the second by a score of 25-23, and then lost the deciding game narrowly, with a 25-23 score. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Lady Bears, who have steadily improved over the season. The girls were to host Shelby County Monday night and Washington County on Tuesday. They will wrap up the season next week with a home game against North Bullitt on Monday and a trip to Collins on Tuesday.

  • Grizzlies claim title with 20-19...


    The Spencer County Middle School Grizzlies won their conference championship last Wednesday with a thrilling 21-19, come-from-behind victory over Bardstown to cap a very successful season.
    First year coach Nathan Greenwell said he encouraged his team to keep playing like they had all year, despite trailing at the half, and finding themselves down 19-7 at the beginning of the fourth quarter.

  • Bears shut out N. Oldham, 13-0


    While the offensive numbers have generated most of the attention for the Spencer County Bears this season, it was the defensive effort Friday night that secured a 13-0 win at North Oldham on a sloppy, muddy field that slowed both teams.

  • Bears topple Titans, 35-14


    The rain fell most of the night, but lighting didn’t strike for the Spencer County Bears until late in the fourth quarter, when they scored three touchdowns in less than two minutes to pull away from Collins, 35-14, for the sixth consecutive victory.

  • Let the kids enjoy this moment


    Last Wednesday afternoon, a row of television cameras and reporters lined the side of Spencer County High School’s football field as media from Louisville made the short trip out to Taylorsville to report on the surprising Bears football team.

    It wasn’t quite the media circus football players experience in the two weeks before the Super Bowl, but for Spencer County, it had to feel pretty close.
