  • Penny shines in all-star matchup

    HARRODSBURG – It is often difficult to get a feel for how good a player performs in an all-star basketball setting, but one thing was certain about Cobe Penny last Thursday night.

    “He got picked as one of the Top 10 players in the state of Kentucky,” Anderson County High School coach Glen Drury said of his standout. “He was representing Anderson County on the Kentucky All-Stars.”

  • Barnes’ belief that Cats could contend fueled regional run

    When I met with L.W. Barnes back in mid-March, one thing, more than any other, stood out about that hour-long interview to discuss Anderson County’s outlook for the high school baseball season.

    He was very upbeat. Barnes even said he felt the Bearcats had a chance to contend for the Eighth Region championship.

    Since Barnes, who took over the Anderson program in 1999, has always been a straight shooter with me, I didn’t think he was pulling my leg.

    Column as I see ’em …

    First a little house cleaning. For those who care, I’m still in the Buffalo area, caring for my mom. Her will to live is incredible, and I’m a better man for witnessing that.

    Thanks to the tech wizards at our corporate headquarters in Shelbyville, I’m just about fully functional from here and able to access the computer on my desk as if it where in front of me, hence me filing some copy this week from afar.
