  • Free fishing opportunities abound this weekend

    Families can take a free test drive of fishing fun during the first weekend of June.

    Kentucky celebrates free fishing weekend across the state June 1-2. It’s been an annual event since at least 1992.

    Moms, dads, grandparents, extended family and out-of-state visitors all can sample Kentucky’s fishing opportunities without having to buy a license or permit during this weekend. Size and creel limits on the number of fish that angles may keep still apply, however. Anglers may keep trout without possessing a trout permit during free fishing weekend.

  • Bearcat record belies progress made under dire circumstances

    Working this craft as long as I have – 28 years – teaches some truths that will never be part of the class syllabus in Journalism 101.

    For that matter, you won't even find it in graduate level courses. Unless, of course, the major is life lessons.

  • OUTDOORS: Flawed elk hunt drawing system should be overhauled

    Allow me to rant a little about the recent Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s annual elk “drawing.”

    As you can probably guess, neither I, nor anyone I know of as of this writing, was drawn for any of the tags again this year. I vowed before buying a license for the 2013-14 seasons that I would not “donate” another $10 of my hard earned money to a flawed system but I did anyway hoping for one last opportunity after all these years.

    The just completed Memorial Day holiday served as the unofficial start of recreational boating season in Kentucky.

    Boating safety officials with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources are urging everyone who plans to be on the water to keep safety in mind. About 90 percent of all boating accident victims die as a result of drowning.

  • Savoie signs with Georgetown

    Anderson County High School senior Shelbi Savoie signed to play college volleyball with Georgetown College last Tuesday. Savoie became a very strong player at the net during her career as a Lady Bearcat.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Sims excels at state middle school meet

    Anderson County Middle School student Alorra Sims had a huge day at the state middle school track meet, held Saturday at the University of Louisville.

    An eighth grader, Sims scored 21 of Anderson County's 25 points to put the Lady Mustangs among the state's best with an eighth-place team finish.

    Sims won the triple jump competition with an effort of 33-feet-10.5-inches. She also placed second in the long jump with a leap of 15-11.50. Sims also placed sixth in the 100-meter hurdles with time of 17.50.

  • 30th DISTRICT BASEBALL: Bearcats learn baseball can be a cruel game

    SHELBYVILLE – It looked like a good pitch.

    It WAS a good pitch.

    Two were out in the bottom of the ninth and Anderson County's Josh Brown had 1-2 count on Collins' Dan Sanders.

    Somehow, though, Sanders got his bat on a fastball, dropping a soft line drive into right field to score Mason Jeffries and give Collins a 1-0 walk-off win over Anderson County in the 30th District semifinal game at Shelby County Athletic Complex last Tuesday.

  • 30th DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Rain can't keep Lady Bearcats from district title

    A reading of the list of things that went wrong might have taken longer than actually getting the 30th District Softball Tournament championship in.

    It almost, repeat, almost, overshadowed the fact that Anderson County captured its second consecutive district title with an 8-6 win over Collins last Thursday.

  • SOFTBALL: Memorial Day fireworks send Lady Bearcats to regional semis

    Fireworks aren't just for the Fourth of July.

    At least, that was the case around Anderson County softball Monday evening.

    Bailey Curry and Alissa Vest both belted Memorial Day home runs and the Lady Bearcat speed manufactured at least five runs as Anderson routed visiting Walton-Verona, 10-3, in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament.
