  • Davenport's string music gives Lady Bearcats rhythm

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - All it takes to get into a good rhythm is a little bit of string music. Tiffany Davenport gave Anderson County more of a good beat than Ringo Starr last Tuesday at Bullitt Central.

    The junior jump-started a struggling Anderson offense with a 3-pointer just over four minutes into the season opener, then kept burning the nets with downtown bombs as the Lady Bearcats routed the hosts 74-27.

  • Changing Saffell school makes fiscal, common sense

    The only people who like change, it has been said, are babies with wet diapers.

    Such is the case with proposed changes to the Anderson County school system, as some parents and teachers are crying foul over the board of education's proposal to do what's right for all at the expense of a few and alleviate overcrowding at the middle school.

    The only viable of two options is to convert Saffell Street Elementary School into a fifth- and sixth-grade campus and spread students in grades one through four to the two remaining elementary schools.

  • Proposals would force some students into different schools

    Proposals to alleviate overcrowded conditions at Anderson County School Middle School and reconfigure student populations at the county elementary schools will be heard during a community forum Dec. 10.

    Two plans formulated by the Anderson County Board of Education and the District Boundary Committee will be presented for public discussion in the auditorium at Anderson County High School beginning at 6 p.m.

  • Military couple returns home to bury child

    When Melissa Hytinen left the military base near Ansbach, Germany, in late October to be deployed to Iraq, she never dreamed it would be the last time that she would be able to talk and share hugs with her baby daughter.

    But barely a month later, Melissa received the message that is every parent's worst nightmare. Her almost-6-month-old daughter Natalee had died in her sleep, an apparent victim of sudden infant death syndrome.

    After Melissa left for Iraq, Natalee remained in the care of her father Roger, who was also stationed at the military base in Germany.

  • Lots of basketball to be played, but Cats show they can strive for greatness

    It's a long time until the Eighth Region tournament is set to begin March 5.

    That's 90 days from the day this column is published.

    That's time enough for 17, hopefully 18 more regularly scheduled boys basketball games plus a date in the prestigious King of the Bluegrass tournament - and as many as four more games games - over the Christmas holiday. Then there are the district tournaments, which start the last Monday in February.

  • Bearcats hang on to win early-season matchup of Eighth Region powers

    Even though it took Simon Kenton all of 56 seconds to slice Anderson County's 11-point lead to just 37-34, the Bearcats said they weren't worried Friday night.

    "No, not worried," said Anderson guard Ryan Wells. "When Coach (Glen) Drury called the timeout, it seemed to calm us."

    Indeed.

    The Bearcats captured the early-season showdown of Eighth Region powers, 61-54, as C.J. Penny, the region's best player, scored 26 points and pulled down 19 rebounds.
