  • Lady Bearcats learn tough lessons in E-town diamond classic

    Anderson County should have learned two important lessons early in the high school softball season.

    The Lady Bearcats can be very good, again. But their reputation as one of Kentucky’s best teams means little to most of the teams they are playing.

    Central Baptist Church in Lawrenceburg has started its annual Soles4Souls shoe drive to provide shoes to people in need around the world.
