  • COLUMN: Anderson victory like Band of Brothers

    NICHOLASVILLE – This time, Anderson County's Band of Brothers took some real history and put it to use in a football game.

    And the way the Bearcats clinched a home-field advantage in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs could not have been more fitting.

    Anderson County put together a splendid performance at East Jessamine Friday night by doing what Easy Company did in World War II. The Bearcats took to the air.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Tates Creek ends Lady Bearcat dream in regional semis

    LEXINGTON – The emotions flowed and the tears were profuse.

    For Anderson County, a soccer season that saw the Lady Bearcats mesh and become a true team had ended last Wednesday. And it had ended in the most cruel of ways.

    Jefferson County's McNeely Lake is a good destination for canoeists, kayakers and those in small boats because the use of gasoline-powered motors is prohibited. 

    Located in Okolona, a suburb about 15 miles south of downtown Louisville, the 51-acre, L-shaped impoundment is reached via the Beulah Church Road exit off the Gene Snyder Freeway. Turn right onto Cooper Chapel Road and follow the signs. The lake is located within the 746-acre McNeely Lake Park, operated by the Louisville Metro Parks system. 

  • Bearcats rout East Jessamine, clinch home playoff game

    NICHOLASVILLE – Seth Carmichael can only hope his Saturday turned out somewhere in the neighborhood of his Friday went.

    About 12 hours before he was scheduled to take the ACT college placement test, Anderson County's senior quarterback tied his own school record by throwing six touchdown passes. On a night when East Jessamine dared Anderson to pass, Carmichael took the dare, completing 12 of 15 throws for 340 yards.

    Have you ever read the entire Bible? How often do you read the Bible?
    Only 16 percent of churchgoers read the Bible daily and 25 percent of churchgoers don’t read the Bible at all, according to Read the Bible For Life.
    How can we call ourselves Christians if we are not diligent in studying the inspired word of God?
    Paul writes in 1 Timothy 4:16, “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”
