  • Franklin not the typical homecoming foe

    Anderson County hits the midpoint of the 2016 football season Friday night, hosting a team against which it has struggled to have success over the years.

    And it will be Homecoming when the Bearcats host Franklin County Friday at 7:30 p.m.

    Anderson and Franklin have played sporadically over the years, meeting every season since 2011. In that time Franklin has four times, Anderson twice with both of the Bearcat wins coming in 2013 at Warford Stadium.

  • Net Cats squander big lead in district match

     

    A strong start was not enough for the Anderson County High School volleyball team Thursday night.

    The Lady Bearcats jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the first set but saw Shelby County rally to win that one, 25-16, then go on to a 3-1 victory in a key 30th District contest in Shelbyville.

    “We started out strong and with the intensity I like to see,” Anderson coach Bob Hardin said. “They just cannot maintain that.”

    A dove comes into your section of the field on opening day. You crouch behind a row of sunflowers and excitedly wait for the dove to come into range.

    The dove keeps coming and you jump up, shoulder your shotgun and fire, followed by another shot and then another, none of them threatening the bird. The dove keeps flying out of the field.

  • Boyle blasts Bearcats to get first win

    Boyle County dominated Anderson County in every phase of the game to rout the Bearcats 41-13 in high school football action Friday night at Bob Ware Field.

    “I think that is a very accurate assessment,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said of the one-sentence wrapup.

  • Man killed when vehicle wrecks, bursts into flames

    One Lawrenceburg man is dead and two other people seriously injured when their vehicles collided this morning on Versailles Road in Lawrenceburg.

    The deceased man’s vehicle, an older Chevy Lumina, flipped over during the collision and caught fire with him trapped inside.

    The names of those involved have not been officially released.

    Responding firefighters and ambulances were delayed by a train on Woodford Street, forcing deputies who were responding to a reckless driver complaint to use fire extinguishers to battle the blaze.

  • How great is our God?

    Do you ever try to imagine the magnitude, the holiness of God? I do, and I find it to be very difficult. The finite, us, stuck in 24/7, 365 days a year, trying to imagine the incomprehensible, eternal God. My mind usually wanders to the words from “How Great Thou Art.” That’s about as close as I come.
