  • Anderson second in Classic

    FRANKFORT – Frankfort jumped on Anderson County early, then kept the Bearcats from making any kind of comeback to take the championship of the Frankfort Rotary Capital City Classic boys’ soccer tournament Saturday night.

    Frankfort ripped the Anderson defense for a 4-0 halftime lead, then added another goal four minutes into the second half to set the final score in the match played at the Sower Soccer Complex.

    Frankfort remained perfect through three matches while Anderson dropped its first match in three games. Anderson fell to 2-1.

  • 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.

  • Unpopular but effective advice for dealing with bullies

    Column as I see ’em …

    What you are about to read will make many educators and the weak-kneed alike audibly gasp.

    Frankly, I don’t care.

    A young mother who lives in another state called me over the weekend, saying that her newly minted second grader had already been the victim of a bully, a mouth-breathing little creep (my description, not hers) who has spent the first week of school picking on her son and has even hit him once.

  • There’s still enough time to plant some late-season vegetables

    My life is far from perfect, but some days are pretty darn close! Sunday was just beautiful. Got lots of chores done and even made a big batch of vegetable soup to can for this winter. Where did this summer go?

    Maybe the wacky weather made it seem like summer came through like an Indy 500 pace car, with a slow start and a fast exit. The walnuts are already dropping and I’m still playing catch up. I do love my summer chores though. Now that my allergies are under control.
