  • Volley Cats drop opener, scale mountain trip

    Summer vacation might have ended too soon for the Anderson County High School volleyball team.

    The Lady Bearcats did not seem ready, according to head coach Bob Hardin, suffering a 3-1 loss at West Jessamine last Tuesday.

    The hosts took a 25-17 win in the first game. Anderson recovered to score a 25-20 win in the second game but West rallied to win games three and four to take the match.

    “Their (blockers) gave us some trouble,” Hardin said. “I feel we will bounce back.”

  • Athletic Clark up next for Bearcats

    To some, it might appear that Anderson County’s trip to George Rogers Clark would appear to be like driving along Interstate 64 on cruise control.

    The Bearcats have beaten Clart by a combined 92-27 over the last two years, but Anderson coach Mark Peach believes those totals are very deceiving.

    “They will be a challenge. I have already had a peek at them,” Peach said. “They are real solid up front and they have Israel back.”

  • Davis undergoes surgery after injury

    Anderson County lineman Logan Davis was carried off the field with 6:23 to go in the first quarter of Friday’s football game with South Oldham at Warford Stadium.

    Davis, a senior, went down when he was providing protection on a pass play. Ambulance personnel were immediately called to midfield.

    Davis was taken to Frankfort Regional Medical Center, where he underwent surgery Saturday morning.

  • Bearcats smell the coffee, roll past South Oldham in opener

    Everyone has had days like Anderson County was having at Warford Stadium Friday night.

    “Some mornings, you wake up – we have all been there – and everything falls into place,” said Bearcat football coach Mark Peach. “You are working hard and say, 'This is a great day!' and have smile on your face.”

    Then there are days like the Bearcats were, ahem, enjoying during the lid-lifter for the 2015 football season.

  • Tomatoes: more than a salad accessory

    When summer began, I had big plans to start my first garden. I was inexperienced and overly ambitious and now that August is here I am left with more tomatoes than I could possibly eat even through the rest of the year.

    With the old saying “waste not, want not” in the back of my head I am getting very creative with all the things you can do with tomatoes.

  • Animal House

    Grace Anderson chuckles as some cats seek attention, rubbing against her legs while a few of her five dogs bark as the stranger loads his car.

    “We have quite a few critters around here,” she says.

    And beginning this weekend, a good number of those critters will be making a trip to Louisville for the Anderson family’s annual excursion to the Kentucky State Fair.
