  • Getting better

    Improvement, more than winning, has been the focus for the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team heading into the 2015 season.

    With that as the goal, the Lady Bearcats’ first outing of the season was a big success.

    Anderson finished 13th out of 19 teams in the Lady Rocket Invitational Saturday at Weissinger Hills in Shelbyville. The Lady Bearcats compiled a 405 team score, well behind Sacred Heart’s winning 317, but 24 strokes ahead of the score Anderson turned in at the same tournament last year.

  • Ticket sales only cover portion of athletic costs

    Providing an accounting of a scholastic sports program depends on many variables and it could be virtually impossible to get an exact figure on how much a school system spends on athletic extra-curricular activities at at school.

  • KHSAA not seeing decline in opportunities

    While some are concerned about being able to fund sports and the opportunities for participation they provide, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association says it is seeing just the opposite in the Commonwealth.

    “We have no data that indicates any type of long-term decline,” KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett said through the association’s spokesman.

  • Bearcats have good start in tourneys

    The Anderson County High School boys’ golf team got off to a good start to the 2015 season with strong showings in the Five-Star General Classic and the Central Hardin Invitational over the weekend.

    “We left many shots on the course,” said Anderson coach Jim Beward. “We could have played better but the team handled adversity well and turned in a respectable performance. We need some work on the driving range and with on-course decision making.

    “It was a good start to the season.”

  • Fire damages home on Powell Taylor Road

    A fire this morning caused major damage to a home at 1146 Powell Taylor Road.

    Connie Snipes said she was home when the fire broke out. Her husband, Bud Snipes, said he had already gone to work.

    “I was sleeping on the couch when the smoke woke me up,” Connie Snipes said. “I just went outside and called 911.”

    The couple’s three dogs were with them as they watched firefighters battle the blaze. Connie Snipes said their cat was missing.

    The fire was called in around 6:45 Monday morning.

  • Man who tattooed 'slut' on woman at gunpoint sentenced

    A Lawrenceburg man charged with tattooing the word slut on a woman’s back while holding her at gunpoint pleaded guilty Thursday morning in Anderson Circuit Court and was sentenced to two years in prison.

  • The Way We Were:Cartinhour receives Meritous Service Award

    Betty Hatter sent an email about the Anderson All-star photo on last week’s Way page. She had two sons in the photo, Jacky Hatter and Robby Hatter, the batboy. She said she remembered this “season in our life” really well and the good times with good friends.

    Kenneth DeWitt was something else. A barrel of fun, with an emphasis on barrel, Hatter said. (Explanation later.) Those were the days when CB radios were really popular. Some of the local guys belonged to a CB radio club called “Uncle Charlie Rejects,” according to the email.

  • Athletic fee is yet another income tax

    Column as I see ’em …

    I’ve stayed out of the dust-up regarding the school board’s decision to start charging student athletes a fee to play a sport.

    Until now, that is.

    Like the $50 instructional fee parents of high school students who don’t receive free or reduced lunches are “required” to pay, the fee to play sports is optional.

    That’s right, it’s optional, but don’t expect to hear or read that anywhere else.
