  • Drury: 'Through time, this team can be good'

    Anderson County basketball might in the midst of its biggest transformation since Glen Drury took over as head coach before the 1987-88 season.

    At least the Bearcats' task of replacing four starters this winter is the biggest since the 1997 team lost seven of its first eight players.

    Drury loses four starters and several key reserves off a team that finished 17-8, despite some key injuries and player attrition.

  • Barnes coaches at East-West game

    There were no fake pickoff moves. None of those trademark suicide squeeze plays.

    But there was quite a bit of baseball fun for Anderson County High School coach L.W. Barnes and his staff as they coached the West junior team in the annual East-West affair at the University of Louisville last Tuesday.

    “We were fortunate enough to split the double-header,” Barnes said. “We lost the first game, 7-5 and won the second, 7-3.”

  • COLUMN: Fishing trip can be perfect remedy for hot weather.

    It’s summer in Kentucky. Mid- to upper-90’s and high humidity. Nothing feels quite like a Kentucky summer. Makes it hard to remember that string of extra cold days this past winter doesn’t it?  We left 90 degree temps in Florida after a week in hopes of finding a little cooler weather back home but that hasn’t quite worked out to our advantage. Definitely time to get the boat to the lake or river. A nice wade fishing trip in Salt River might even be in order.

  • COLUMN: Something missing in draft night celebration

    Somewhere I must have really missed something.

    Maybe it was just because my TV was tuned to ESPN2 last Thursday night, not ESPN itself. While it seemed like the rest of the sports world around me was gushing over teenagers immediately becoming millionaires without finishing college, I was mesmerized by a 12-inning thriller in the College World Series.
