  • STATE FINALS EXTRA: Harp hopes Anderson will have a 'Sea of Red' at Saturday's final

    Before this year's run to the state championship game, Sam Harp's three years (1985-1987) were considered one of the best eras ever in Anderson County football. After Harp took the Bearcats to the regional final in 1987, the Bearcats did not advance that far again until last year's team gave top-ranked John Hardin all it wanted before falling.

    This year's Anderson County team won the school's first regional championship, then topped that with an impressive performance Saturday against Southwestern to advance to the final.

  • When things go bad, where do you turn?

    The book of Job is truly an amazing story.
    I often wonder how people say the Bible isn’t true or that it’s been changed or man-made.
    Such rich stories are hard to fathom being anything than other than God’s holy word in my opinion.
    I try and relate the plight of Job to my own life.
    How many times have I experienced failure or loss or problems in general and asked God why me?
    Job was a devout servant of God.
    He was powerful, successful and had many possessions and a large family.
