    Friday sports update

    Anderson County had a big day in high school sports on Thursday.

    The Bearcat boys’ soccer team exploded in the opening minutes of the second half to roll past district rival Frankfort, 4-1, on the Anderson pitch. Leading 1-0 after a first half that saw the Bearcats miss out on some big opportunities, Anderson’s David Simmons and Josh Doolin both scored within a five-minute span just after halftime to give Anderson a commanding 3-0 lead.

    SPORTS BLOG: Could the Bearcats be ripe for an upset?

    I never thought I would see the day when I wondered if Anderson County was really ready for its annual football grudge match with Mercer County.

    Not so much about the Bearcats themselves, since I have not been around the team as it has prepared for Friday's game at Warford Stadium.

  • Christ’s words show he is God’s equal

    Religion is a funny thing. It often confuses me how some different religions interpret the Bible so differently than I do.
    I have been wrestling toe to toe with a very close friend of a different faith (I am Baptist) over one such difference. My friend’s church contends that Jesus is an angel, subservient to God, and less than God.
