  • History lives in regional final

    VERONA – According to the experts, history teaches those valuable life lessons.

    And those lessons were in abundance Thursday night as Anderson County was going for its first girls’ regional high school soccer title.

    Trailing 3-0 at the half, Anderson coach Jason Earnest drew on his team’s past to tell his charges they were not hopelessly behind. He knew.

  • ‘Spent’ Lady Cats score early, cruise past pesky Gallatin

    Anderson County overcame physical and mental fatigue to whip Gallatin County, 3-0, in the girls’ Eighth Region Soccer Tournament at Walton-Verona last Tuesday.

    “They were physically and emotionally spent,” Earnest said of his team, which had upset North Oldahm on penalty kicks the night before. “Gallatin was jacked up and ready to play.”

  • What would you do if you saw an albino buck?

    I wanted to start out this month’s column with a question to readers and hunters in our community. Before asking the question, I’ll set it up for you.

    Gavin Dingman is an 11-year-old hunter who lives in Michigan. A couple of weeks ago Gavin harvested a nice 12-point trophy buck with a 30-yard shot from his crossbow.

  • Overcoming challenges found in fall bass fishing

    You arrive at the Holcomb’s Landing Ramp just after dawn and look at the shoreline of Lake Cumberland. A line of damp rocks several inches thick rings the lake and the rip rap on the face of Wolf Creek Dam.

    Your heart sinks. They are releasing a lot of water quickly through the dam and into the Cumberland River below it. The first smallmouth bass trip of the fall may be a bust.

  • Salato Center hosts benefit Trail Run

    Trail runners can enjoy a race through the fall woods while helping the Salato Wildlife Education Center, according to a news release.

    The center, located on U.S. 60, west of Frankfort, will be hosting the sixth annual Running Wild 4-Mile Trail Run in Frankfort on Saturday, Nov. 1.

    According to the release, the course will follow the Salato Center’s HabiTrek, Pea Ridge and exhibit trails. These are primitive dirt trails complete with challenging hills, hairpin switchbacks, woods, prairies, brambles and all the obstacles that Mother Nature can supply.

  • Lady Cats fall short of title

    SHELBYVILLE – Whether it was Anderson County’s tradition – or more precisely, the lack of such – or that Collins just has the Lady Bearcats’ number in big volleyball games, the bottom line was still the same in the 30th District title match.

    Collins took its third crown in the five year history of the school while Anderson could only think of an opportunity lost in the tournament, played at Shelby County High School.

  • Dad’s death fosters deeper trust in God

    The article I wrote for last week’s edition of The Anderson News told of my dad’s quiet battle with cancer and his testimony to the enduring grace of God in his life. Ironically, that was also the day I preached at his funeral. On Saturday, Oct. 11, my dad lost his six-year battle with cancer. We laid his body to rest last Wednesday, the day this paper ran that article wherein I wrote about the faith with which he faced his cancer, and his trust in the God who was the source and object of his faith.

  • God says wives much more than mere ‘gifts’

    By Larry Coleman

    Guest Columnist

    The following is in response to faith columnist’s Brian Owens’ column titled “Husbands should treat wives as gifts from God,’ which appeared in the Sept. 24 edition of The Anderson News.

    I found this article quite challenging, to say the least. It is for sure a very positive view of wives, which is most needed these days. However, the account found in the scriptures reveals that our creator, God, presents a far greater view of “wives/women” than as mere gifts.
