  • Martial arts group raising funds to assist families

    Martial arts enthusiasts say the sport does much more than teach self defense.

    They say it also builds character.

    Amid the hustle and bustle of Lawrenceburg Sidewalk Days on Saturday, members of Lawrenceburg Martial Arts on Woodford Street spent the day building that character by seeking donations to assist those in need this Thanksgiving and Christmas.


    FRANKFORT – Football has changed, but the game is really still the same.

    When they met Friday night, Anderson County, with its multiple formations, and Franklin County, owner of one of Kentucky’s highest-octane attacks, bore little resemblance to three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust.

    But the keys to victory have remained the same from the days of Jim Thorpe to Vince Lombardi to today.

    Hang on to the ball. Block and tackle. Do the little things and don’t make silly mistakes.

  • Bearcats get chance to show mettle Friday

    There was ample warning that Boyle County might be able to put a football-style hurting on Anderson County Friday night.

    The Rebels thumped Danville the week before, 42-20. That was the same Danville that defeated Anderson in a pre-season scrimmage but Anderson fans tried to take solace in the fact that scrimmages are far different than games. Teams work on things and try to find what they can and can’t do. There are even times when team run a set number of plays regardless of the down situation.


    Anderson County resident Kaitlyn Riley captured the first individual tournament championship of her collegiate career, firing a three-under par 143 over two days to win the Bill Sargent Invitational at Crooked Creek Golf Community in London.

    Riley’s total was six strokes better than second place finisher Cristina Jiminez, of Lindsey Wilson.

    Riley’s University of the Cumberlands team also took the team title, outlasting Cumberland University of Tennessee.

  • Boyle burns Bearcats early, rolls on to romp

    DANVILLE – As he prepared to talk about Anderson County’s trip to Boyle County, Mark Peach could only come up with a hint of a grin and a look like, “What happened?”

    The quickest, yet most correct answer was simply, “Boyle County happened.”

    And the Rebels happened in a way that underscored their place as one of the handful of elite teams across Kentucky, regardless of classification.

  • Tough minds lead to fast feet

    Getting to the finish line is good.

    But getting to the finish line first, or at least with a low placing, is even better.

    That is the mindset Anderson County High School cross country coach Scott Buser is trying to cultivate with the Bearcat runners.

    Despite having low numbers – currently the girls’ team does not have enough runners to compile a team score – the change is slowly taking place.

  • Morgan leads Anderson golfers past Western Hills

    Jordon Morgan shot an even-par 35 to lead Anderson County to a 158-189 win over Western Hills in a high school golf match last Tuesday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    Hayden Elder fired a 37 as the Bearcats won a Central Kentucky Bluegrass Conference match.

    “We played OK, but not great,” Anderson coach Jim Beward said. “The wind made the course play tougher than normal.”
