  • Man accepts plea deal in sexual assault case

    A man indicted more than three years ago on a charge of first-degree sexual abuse of an 8-year-old pleaded guilty Wednesday morning in Anderson County Circuit Court, just moments before his trial was scheduled to begin.

  • New athletic fee not a bad thing, at least for now

    When it comes to the new athletic participation fees being implemented in Anderson County Schools this year, it’s easy to get worked up about kids and their families having to fork over a little more cash to play sports.

    But that is a short-sighted knee-jerk reaction because the move, as it stands right now, is a good one.

  • LATEST EXPENSE TIED TO HIRING TRAINER

    Injuries in sports are a given. So are the costs involved with the treatment and prevention of those injuries.

    Those realities have prompted the Anderson County Board of Education to approve athletic participation fees beginning with the 2015-16 school year. The fees are being instituted as a way of being able to provide a certified athletic trainer for teams representing Anderson County schools, something the local schools have not been doing over the years.

  • Mudcats battle wet summer

    It has been a difficult summer for the Central Kentucky Mudcats’ baseball teams.

    The local organization, which fields travel teams in the 14-and-under and 16-and-under divisions, serves as a development program for the Anderson County High School baseball program. Many of the Mudcat games are played against teams comprised of players from several different schools.

  • Registrations being taken for Allen Dennis Scramble

    The Eighth Annual Allen Dennis Golf Scramble will be held on Saturday, Aug. 8 at Tanglewood Golf Course in Taylorsville.

    The scramble will feature a shotgun start at 8 a.m.

    Proceeds from the scramble will benefit a scholarship fund in honor of Allen Dennis, who drowned at age 9. The scholarship is awarded to a student from Anderson, Shelby or Spencer counties. The cost is $50 per person or $200 per team.

  • Fees common among area schools

    When the Anderson County Board of Education decided to implement athletic participation fees for the coming year, it joined a growing number of school systems to go that route as a way to offset the ever-growing costs associated with interscholastic athletics.

    In fact, Anderson County High School athletic director Rick Sallee says the local school system was one of the last to resort to passing that cost on to athletes and their families.

    “I would say 90 percent of the high schools in the state have this,” Sallee said last week.

  • What is a certified athletic trainer?

    A certified athletic trainer is a health care professional that works with athletes in the prevention and treatment of injuries. The trainer is instructed in first aid and the analysis of injuries.

    It is different from phyiscal therapist, whose training is in the restoration of strength and motion.

    While the disciplines have some similarities, they have different courses of study and different certifications.
