  • Coroner: Thurman drove in fatal wreck

    Justin Thurman was driving the pickup truck that veered off Highway 44 more than a year ago, killing him instantly.
    That is the ruling of the Anderson County Coroner’s office, which had to wait for DNA results from the state police lab in Frankfort before making the determination.
    The news puts to rest a year-long question as to who was driving the truck, Thurman or the man who turned out to be his passenger, Kristian Baxter.

  • Firefighters battle eight blazes in two hours

    The New England Patriots weren’t the only ones who kept coming back Super Bowl Sunday.
    The Anderson County Fire Department came back, and back, and back some more to their assigned fire stations after being called out to battle eight different fires in a two-hour period.
    “We were pretty busy for a while,” said Chief Pat Krogman.
    The fires were all either brush fires or controlled burns that went out of control, he said.

  • Jail log: Woman busted for allegedly using forged prescriptions

    A Frankfort woman was busted Feb. 2 by Lawrenceburg Police for allegedly passing forged prescriptions at the Walmart pharmacy.
    Stephanie Rhodes, 26, of Apple Tree Court was charged after allegedly admitting to taking forged prescriptions from another person to the store and having them filled under different names, according to a report filed by officer Jamie Dunn.
    At the time of her arrest, police allegedly found a blue pill container containing a number of prescription pills, along with more pills in her vehicle.

  • Bearcats rally to defeat pesky Wolverines

    Anderson County’s 59-50 win over visiting Western Hills last Wednesday night might be one of those basketball games that one sees through his own perspective.

    To some, a victory over a program that has beaten Anderson just once in the last 25 years is not something that would get a fan worked up. A victory that was not sealed until the fourth quarter might be more of a head-scratcher than one to offer great encouragement going into the post-season.

    Anderson coach Glen Drury didn’t see it that way.

  • Lafayette, Campbellsville latest victims of Lady Cats

    Sammy Rogers had already gone through her Senior Night, but had another big outing on the night she officially said her home court goodbye.

    Rogers scored 19 points, pulled in three rebounds and recorded three steals and three blocked shots as Anderson County romped past visiting Lafayette, 60-35, last Thursday night.

    “I was happy to see Sam get going,” Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell said. “We know that she can go long stretches of being really hot, and I think we saw glimpses of her starting that again.”

  • Anderson County girls romp at South Oldham

    CRESTWOOD – It was quickly apparent that it was going to be Lauren Boblitt’s night.

    Anderson County’s second possession of its 57-31 romp at South Oldham ended with the sophomore center launching a three-point attempt from the right wing.

    Swish!

    It put Anderson up 3-0. The Lady Bearcats would never be on the short end of the score the rest of the night.

    The Lady Bearcats’ next trip ended when Jaclynn Ruble, Boblitt’s classmate who had a big night of her own, slipped a pass to Boblitt for a layup.

  • Let the madness begin

    Trying to state just how big tonight’s 30th District basketball semifinal is without overstating the case is almost impossible.

    The Anderson County boys take on Spencer County in what promises to be one of those get togethers that could produce additional business for the neighborhood cardiologist. The Bearcats and Bears tip it off at approximately 7:30 p.m at Collins High School in Shelbyville.

    The Spencer and Collins girls play the first game at 6 but most eyes will be on a rematch of last year’s boys’ opener.

  • Bearcats escape upset bid

    Everything seemed to be under control for Anderson County last Friday night.

    Cobe Penny had just buried a three-pointer that put the Bearcats up on Franklin County 34-18 midway through the second quarter and the largest home crowd of the season was ready bask a monumental rout of the neighboring Flyers.

    But Anderson coach Glen Drury leapt from his chair, demonstratively signaling for a timeout. Before Drury could say anything, his top assistant, Bryan Hyatt, was yelling, “You have quit guarding!”

  • Mat Cats already looking ahead to 2018

    Chase Fink might have given a glimpse of things to come for Anderson County wrestling at the KHSAA State Wrestling Tournament.

    The freshman advanced to the quarterfinals in the 138-pound class of the tournament held at Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park Friday and Saturday.

    In his debut at the state, Fink rolled through his first two bouts before falling to Kestin McClain of McCracken County, just one win away from the medal round. McClain eventually finished eighth.
