  • Lady Bearcats third in Louisville tournament

    The Anderson County High School girls’ soccer team got the season underway with a split in the I-65 Battle of the Turfs, hosted by Mercy Academy last week.

    The Lady Bearcats dropped a 6-1 decision to Louisville Male in the tournament opener last Monday, but recovered for a 4-3 win over Thomas Nelson in Saturday’s consolation game. In between, a contest against Mercy was called because of the weather. Anderson won a coinflip to be the three seed in the consolation bracket.

  • Bearcats travel to Meade County

    Fresh off its win at George Rogers Clark last week, Anderson County travels to Meade County Friday night for what Bearcat coach Mark Peach expects to be a battle.

    A Class 6A school, Meade fell to 6A power Simon Kenton, 47-13, in the season opener last Friday in Brandenburg. Peach says that result is not indicative of the Green Wave’s potential. “I have seen them on film and they are good,” Peach said.

  • ‘It’s going to be really cool’

    While the rest of America gazes at the sky for what is being billed as the best solar eclipse in a century, one Tyrone resident will have his eyes trained on something a bit more technical.

    Shawn Crowe, a meteorologist with Central Kentucky Weather, has a fully functional weather station at his home on Wildcat Road, and it’s fair to say he’s excited to see the moon blot out all but 4 percent of the sun that afternoon.

  • Need glasses for eclipse? Good luck

    If you haven’t purchased your 2017 Total Solar Eclipse glasses you may be out of luck.

    Local suppliers such as Kroger, Walmart, and Five Star have sold out and said they will not be getting in any further shipments before the eclipse takes place Aug. 21.

    Online retailers, including Amazon, are still offering the glasses despite having to recall pairs sold that don’t meet safety standards, but it’s anyone’s guess if purchases made at this late date will arrive before Monday’s historic event.

  • Kays claims 2018 DYW crown

Kays competed against eight other young woman in the community with a 10-minute pre-show interview, fitness routine, 90-second talent competition and an onstage interview question, all while keeping with the motto, “Put your best self forward.”

  • Police say DUI suspect litterbug, too

    A woman who was allegedly drunk when the vehicle she was driving struck a tree has also been charged with criminal littering, according to a citation issued by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.
