  • Storm wreaking havoc on roadways

    UPDATED 11 A.M. — The winter storm that is expected to blanket Anderson County with upwards of a foot of snow through tonight is already wreaking havoc on the roads.

    “Jack was a player’s coach, firm, direct, decisive and always fair. God gave me the talent, Jack taught me what to do with it.

  • Lady Cats focus on March, split two on road

    When the calendar turns to February, just about everything is done with a focus on March.

    At least that is how it is in high school basketball and was definitely the case for the Anderson County girls last week when they defeated Bryan Station but lost to Mercy Academy, one of the top teams in the Louisville area. The Lady Bearcats stand at 15-10 on the year.

    Last Tuesday, the Lady Bearcats pulled out a 49-46 win over Bryan Station in Lexington.
