  • Somber senior night as teams lose to BEHS

    The Spencer County boys and girls soccer teams have bid their formal farewell to seniors, but they’ve still got a few games left in the season, including opening games of their district tournament that begins next Monday night.

    The squads took a few moments last Thursdsay to honor their seniors between games. For the boys, the ceremony came on the heels of a disappointing 8-1 loss to Bullitt East. Senior Jamie Fleig scored the lone goal for the Bears in the first half, but the visiting Chargers pulled away in the second period for the win.

  • LETTER: Just wondering

    I have a few more questions about the place we love:

    Why was gas 13 cents cheaper in Shelbyville this morning than it was here?  (That’s 16 cents with a Wal-Mart gift card, folks!)

  • Bears knock down undefeated Wolverines

    Bryant Fowler’s 98-yard pass reception that took the Spencer County Bears from their own 1 yard line to the Western Hills 1 yard line to set up the game-winning touchdown with just over a minute left to play Friday night, proved to be the most exciting play in the Bears’ 24-21 win over the previously undefeated and ranked Wolverines. But it wasn’t the biggest play.

  • LETTER: In support of Clevenger

    Thank you for your Matter of Opinion article this week!  It’s about time somebody called a spade a spade. 

    Sandy Clevenger has done nothing but stand up for our kids in this district! She always has “doing the right thing” at the top of list of things to do.  She researches when she needs an answer and doesn’t give in to peer pressure.  She isn’t looking for her name in the paper or for friends in high places.  She is here for all the right reasons.

    History was made on Tuesday night as the Spencer County Middle School Grizzly Football team became the first to win a football championship in our county’s brief football history. The Grizzlies defeated the Old Kentucky Home Middle School Wildcats from Nelson County 29-0 to win the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Division I Championship. OKH had won the MKAC Championship the last three years in a row with their win in 2006 coming over Spencer County in the championship game.

  • Octoberfest: Fun starts Friday

    This weekend’s festivities may have a new name, but organizers say the 2008 Octoberfest will feature all the same family fun residents have come to expect after four decades as the Spencer County Homecoming.

    In fact, there may even be more adventures packed into the two-day event than folks might be accustomed.

    With fall elections nearing, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) reminds candidates and their supporters that campaign signs are not allowed along state rights of way.

    “Our preference is that campaign signs be placed on privately owned property,” Transportation Secretary Joe Prather said. “We want to support and encourage the democratic process, but not at the expense of our motorists’ safety. We absolutely appreciate the cooperation received in years past from all of the various campaigns.”
