  • A modern Civil War

    My one sibling, Jeff, and I seldom agree about anything. It has always been that way between the two of us.

    I'm three years older and have always been larger and stronger than him. As many big brothers are wont to do, I'm embarrassed to admit that I bullied him a time or two or more.

  • Celebration punctuates Bearcats' regional title

    More than likely anyone who was awake in Lawrenceburg about 10 o'clock Thursday night heard it. It might have been enough to wake sound sleepers. It wasn't the mysterious noise behind a local car wash.

    It was the overly large, loud and long caravan of family, friends and fans following the police escort for the Anderson County baseball team or more recently the 'Eighth Region Champs!'

  • High-octane first inning fuels championship

    BUCKNER - This time, it helped that Shelby County was in the other dugout.

    "Oh yeah," Anderson County senior Miranda Drury said. "Everybody was so pumped."

    Pumped?

    Fuel that would deliver the kind of results the Lady Bearcats had last Thursday would be going for 40 bucks a gallon, or more, on today's market.

  • County clerk dies

    Anderson County Clerk Harold Ritchey, 64, died Monday night after collapsing while jogging on Broadway.

    Gash Memorial Chapel is handing the arrangements.

  • Sloan finishes sixth at state track meet

    LOUISVILLE Anderson County high jumper Jordan Sloan finished sixth in the KHSAA Class AAA track meet held Friday and Saturday in Louisville. Sloan jumped 6-2 to become the first Anderson performer to score at the state meet since 2004. Sloan survived a scare when he scratched twice at 6-0 but hit his final jump at that height. He made 6-2 on his first try but missed all three attempts at 6-4. No other Anderson performer finished in the top 8, although sprinter Cody Dixon just missed the cut, finishing ninth in the preliminary heats.

  • Bearcats, Lady Cats achieve diamond royalty

    Just call them the kings and queens of the diamond.

    The Anderson County baseball and fast-pitch softball teams put exclamation points on their seasons Thursday night when both captured their respective Eighth Region championships. It is the first time in Anderson County history boys' and girls' teams from the same or corresponding sports have won regional titles in the same season.

    The Lady Bearcats fast-pitch softball team rode a big first inning to a 4-0 win over archrival Shelby County for its first state tournament trip since 2002.

  • Bearcats, Lady Bearcats advance to regional championship games

    Anderson County 4, Oldham County 3 (14 innings)

    Miranda Drury ripped a single to left, scoring Courtney Turpin and giving Anderson County a 4-3 semi-final win over host Oldham County in a 14-inning thriller at the Eighth Region tournament Wednesday night.

    “The pitch was inside and I was able to hit it,” said Drury, who had gone hitless in five previous at-bats against Oldham star Michelle Dresselhaus.

  • A heart, please

    Carla Sparrow, the 22-year-old woman featured in the May 28 edition of The Anderson News, received the heart transplant she'd been waiting five weeks for early Wednesday morning, according to family and friends.

    "God has answered our prayers and found her a heart," said Michael Wright, father of Carla's two-year-old son, Blake. "She was prepped and went into the procedure between 3:30 and 5 a.m. this morning (May 28)."

    Friends and family said Carla remains at the medical center and is recuperating as expected.

  • Four qualify for state track meet

    UPDATED INFORMATION: Anderson's Devin Davenport's third place finish in the regional meet was good enough for a wild card berth in the state finals. Davenport jumped 41-11 at the regional.

    Sprinter Cody Dixon also made the state in the 100-meter dash. Dixon finished fourth at the region but his 11.34 time was still good enough to make the state.
