  • FOOTBALL: Peach looks back on season and to the future

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Improved Bearcats notch two wins

    Anderson County was supposed to be a better basketball team this year than it was last season. If the early returns are any indication, the Bearcats will be living up to those expectations.

    Anderson is now 3-0 after wins over Garrard County and Whitley County last week.

    The Bearcats opened their home season with an impressive 59-43 win over a Garrard County team that some feel might be worthy of some attention in the 12th Region.

  • Bearcats to get first test of season at Shelby

    While the Anderson girls will be heavily favored, the boys' game will give some insight into both teams and where they stand in the 30th District and the Eighth Region.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL Lady Bearcats outlast Lincoln

    The Lady Bearcats shot less than 30 percent, committed 18 turnovers, had numerous mental mistakes and still knocked 12th Region favorite Lincoln County from the ranks of the unbeaten last Friday night.

  • Turn to God in bad times, and good

    When do we most often cry out to God?
    Usually it is in time of great need or distress. It often happens when we have had a personal loss, financial loss or perhaps a death or illness.
    Belief in God during hard times is a normal human attribute. I inherently believe even atheists, deep down, realize this whole thing isn’t one big mistake and that God does exist.
    It is certainly fine to call out to God when we are in distress, but how important is it for us to do the same during good times, too?
