  • The history of All Saints’ Day

     

    Most Catholic churches in the United States celebrate All Saints’ Day to honor all saints, particularly those who do not have their own special feast day on November 1.

  • Bears fall to Marshall, 20-14

     

    The drive out to far western Kentucky Friday turned into an even longer drive back home as the Spencer County Bears fumbled away a chance to end their season on a winning note, losing to Marshall County 20-14.
