  • Bearcats take two of three in Louisville Invitational Tournament

    Anderson County won two of three games in the Louisville Invitational Tournament played at Holy Cross High School. The Bearcats won a pair of games by the “mercy rule,” but a late breakdown against DeSales prevented the Bearcats from sweeping their three games.

  • Bearcat baseball set for Louisville Invitational

    The Anderson County baseball team is to play at Louisville Holy Cross on Thursday night at 6:45, then return to Louisville to play DeSales and Paintsville in a double-header beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday.

    The games are part of the 40-team Louisville Invitational Tournament, which is really not a championship bracket. Instead it is a gathering of the top-ranked teams in the state playing across the city.

  • Lady Bearcats show they plan to defend crown

    SHELBYVILLE – With a month to go in the regular season, there is little doubt about which softball team is at the top of the Eighth Region.

    At least Anderson County is at the top of what is generally considered the region’s toughest district.

    The Lady Cats, already ranked 14th in the state and the defending regional champion, established that it is planning on making a return trip to Owensboro with a 6-0 win on a chilly night at Shelby County last Wednesday.

  • Lady Bearcats host Butler, fans should be aware of new entrance

    The Anderson County Lady Bearcats, ranked 14th in the latest statewide softball poll, host Louisville Butler on Tuesday afternoon at 6 p.m. Butler is ranked 16th in the same poll.

    Because of construction of a new field house near the field, fans must make an alternate entrance to the softball facility.

  • COLUMN: A golf fan a year in the making

    Dear golf lovers, I used to be one of your worst enemies, but time has turned me into one of your allies.

    No, I’m not leaving The Anderson News to pursue a career in the LPGA, but I have grown to be not only tolerant, but appreciative of the sport.

    About a year ago, I wouldn’t have been caught dead watching golf on television. I could understand that some people (not me) would be able to enjoy playing the game, but to sit for hours and just watch it seemed like a boring waste of time.

  • COLUMN: Raise a glass to Wild Turkey and Sunday package sales

    Column as I see ’em ...

    The sale of Wild Turkey is among the best economic news Anderson County has seen in some time.

    No knock against the soon-to-be former owners, but Campari appears to be a terrific company and well positioned to make one of the world’s best-known bourbons stake an even greater claim in the spirits market.

  • A load of bull

    Anderson County’s cattle producers really are a bunch of know-it-alls.

    From how much rib-eye steak a bull will produce to how much calves they sire will weigh, farmers Dennis Cantrill, Buddy Smith, Dave Burge and Dorris Bruce can tick off a nearly endless list of stats and figures about their bulls.

    Their ability to do so allows them to maximize the value of their prized stock and survive the rugged business of raising and selling beef cattle.
