  • SCHS Freshman football team beats Southern 12-0

    The Spencer County Bears Freshman Football team beat Southern High School of Louisville 12-0 in the Fairdale Freshman Football Classic on September 6, 2008.

    The Bears were dominate on both sides of the ball during the game. Offensively, the Bears got rolling running the ball at will on the opening drive of the game and then took to the air for a 25 yard touchdown pass from Cory Sealey to Aaron Preuett.

    The Bears defense was dominating all afternoon while allowing only three Southern first downs throughout the entire game.

  • BLOG UPDATE WED.: From the front lines at the RNC

    WEDNESDAY

    We slept in a bit after a late night. Lynn went out with some delegates to a Styx concert and arrived back at the hotel at some unearthly hour. In the morning (late morning) I went to the Minneapolis Convention Center to see and help with the relief efforts for the hurricane. The bicycle donation ride by Humana was up and going and the volunteers were busy at the convention hall assembling relief packages. It gave me a great feeling to watch people helping other folks unconditionally.

  • SCHS Golf Classic

    It is time for the second annual SCHS Athletics Golf Classic. We were very pleased with our results and turnout last year and hope to make this years event bigger, better and more enjoyable. However we can not do this without your help. We already have CUB Bank committed to our $5,000 hole in one sponsorship, UK Healthcare to our Eagle sponsorship and Salt River Electric to our Birdie sponsorship. We encourage all of our community members and supporters participate in this event at some level.

  • LETTER: School board is not listening

    I attended the August school board meeting and was very disappointed and angry over the outcome. 

    A ruling was handed down by Jack Conway stating that it was illegal to have a closed meeting to discuss the evaluation of our superintendent.  Yet, instead of accepting that, some of our board members have decided to use money which could be well spent in our schools, to fight this ruling.  And they have the nerve to say they are doing what is right for our children. 

  • Reigning “Diamond Divas”

    The 14u Kentucky Thunder softball team attended the NASF “Diamond Divas” over Labor Day weekend in Mooresville, Indiana.  They competed against several other 14u and 16u teams from numerous states and even countries!  Kentucky Thunder was the 14u champions, winning the final game against Regina Gold from Saskatchewan, Canada on Monday with a score of 14-4.

  • IN THE WORD: Trusting in God

    John 4:23-24 – “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

    As we look at what Jesus is telling us in these two verses, we see that we are to let the Holy Spirit take over our prayer life and our worship services. If we do not, we will get very little good out of either one.

  • Bears drop another one

    Last week, the Spencer County Bears were unable to match points with the big boys from 6A Bullitt Central. On Friday, they learned that the little guys are plenty good too, as they dropped a 25-7 decision at 1A Frankfort.

    Of course, Frankfort is one of the top small schools in the state and Bears’ Head Coach Matt Powenski said he still expects good things from his team but said they must learn from their early-season mistakes.
