  • Moore fires no-hitter against Top 20 team

    If Ally Moore pitches like this when she is not feeling well, what will she do when she is full strength?

    Moore, an Anderson County junior, totally silenced the Louisville Holy Cross bats, firing a no-hitter as the Lady Bearcats prevailed, 2-1, in the final game of the Lafayette Invitational, held Saturday in Lexington.

    Moore held the Cougars, ranked No. 16 in the state in the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association poll, hitless while striking out seven and walking one.

  • Sims jumps over Creek field

    Anderson County High School sophomore Alorra Sims backed up her reputation as one of Kentucky’s best jumpers when she took first place in the long jump at the Tates Creek Commodore Classic Saturday in Lexington.

    Sims soared 16-feet-11-inches, tying a school record in the event. Sims, who finished third in the state in the event last year, is considered a serious contender for the state championship. Sims also placed sixth in the 100-meter hurdles and third in the 300-meter hurdles. It was the best showing of any Anderson harrier on Saturday.

  • Heroin bust a reason to cheer

    Column as I see ’em …

    It was with great pleasure that I photographed the scene of a heroin bust conducted early Monday evening by the Lawrenceburg Police Department.

    When it comes to police getting that garbage off the streets, the dispassionate journalist in me takes a vacation and I actually feel like cheering while taking photos.

    Lawrenceburg, like so many other communities in Kentucky and across the country, is lousy with heroin and the problem continues to get worse.
