  • Archers have big day at state meet

    An analysis of how the Anderson County High School archery team performed at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association state tournament last Thursday depends on who is doing the analyzing.

    The Bearcats placed eighth in the state championship meet with 3,400 of a possible 3,600 points. Madison Central won the title with Lafayette placing second. Perennial power Trigg County finished third.

  • Netting some points
  • Bearcats conclude spring practice

    Spring practice in high school football can be deceptive, but Thursday’s Red-White game at Anderson County High School showed the Bearcats potentially have some weapons they did not have last fall.

    “What I liked was a lot of different players contributing,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said. “With the mix of our returning players with our new additions gives us better team speed and also helps with the depth.”

  • Not with best intentions

    By now, Bailey Curry is used to the treatment she gets around the Eighth Region.

    And she knows there’s nothing she can do about it other than break into her huge smile and punish the opponent the best she can.

    Such was the case last Wednesday at Collins High School. The Titans had to believe they were at least Anderson’s equal, maybe even a bit better than the Lady Bearcats in 2017. After all, Anderson has been playing just a bit above .500 against a rugged schedule while Collins had routed Oldham County two nights before.

    Column as I see ’em …

    I wasn’t aware until recently that the University of Kentucky is going broke.

    Please forgive my ignorance because while I don’t venture into the city very often, it would appear when I do that the state’s namesake university is humming along nicely. Not only does the construction of new buildings and such go on in perpetuity, the school certainly isn’t shy about hefty tuition increases each and every year.

  • Cattle ear tags help with fly reduction

    Cattle receiving insecticide-impregnated ear tags take their fly control system with them. Ear tags have provided a popular option to control the horn fly, a blood-sucking insect that hits producers with a $1 billion bill for losses and control costs each year. In addition, the tags can reduce face fly numbers on cattle.

    In the fall I call it peeping; in the spring I call it leaving. The ornery kid in me really wanted to start this paragraph with “I’m leaving”, but thought better of it.

    Actually, I’m just really enjoying watching the trees get their leaves on.

  • ECC Teacher of the Year shies away from spotlight

    Amanda Cartinhour, a special education teacher at Ezra B. Sparrow Early Childhood Learning Center, was excited about winning teacher of the year but was not so keen on all the attention.

    “(I thought) Oh, OK, this is awesome, but I am just doing my job,” said Cartinhour.

    Cartinhour is in her seventh year teaching at ECC. She went to college at Midway College, and received her master’s in special education from Georgetown College.
