  • Experienced Brown is newcomer to Anderson track program

    If the Anderson County track program has become a relay, it might be that new coach Keith Brown is expecting to run a strong anchor leg.

    Brown takes over as the school's fourth head coach in the last six years, but unlike his predecessors, he brings a wealth of experience to the Anderson program.

    “I started coaching at Harrodsburg High School in 1990,” Brown says. “I was (Hall of Fame coach) Alvis Johnson's assistant coach there until 1997, when I took over as head coach.”

    Life is good! Winter is over and I get a few days off to celebrate spring’s arrival. So what if it is a cool spring. It’s still way warmer than those bone chilling months and I’ve got spring fever! The moon is right so I’m planting onions, potatoes, spinach and lettuce seeds. I’ve got broccoli plants to put in as well.

    I feel really bad for all the teachers and kids who had to miss spring break so I thought I’d share a little humor in that vein. I know there will be some “skippers” in the school district!
