  • Ratliff off to UK

    In a perfect world, Ryan Ratliff would have signed his NCAA national letter-of-intent in blue ink. It would have matched his blood.


    And last Wednesday, the Anderson County high jumper officially became a Kentucky Wildcat in a signing ceremony at the high school, inking with the school that has had his heart ever since he was old enough to know the difference between a three-pointer and a slam dunk.


    “UK has always been my favorite school,” Ratliff said. “Once I got the green light from UK, I was set on that.”

  • BASEBALL: Anderson falls in regional opener

    INDEPENDENCE – Anderson County showed up for the Eighth Region baseball tournament. Bearcat baseball did not.


    North Oldham scored four times in the top of the first, then took advantage of numerous Bearcat mistakes to coast to an 8-3 win in the opening game of the tournament, being played at Simon Kenton High School.

  • COLUMN: District title not a suprise

    There was a time not too long ago when Anderson County baseball had a rather simple view of postseason success.


    Basically, it was draw opposite Shelby County in the district tournament and just to make the regional. There were exceptions to that, of course. The most notable was a district championship in 1988, but that is the brightest light for the program between regional tournament victories in 1983 and 1999.

  • BASEBALL: North Oldham ends Anderson season

    INDEPENDENCE -- North Oldham scored four runs in the top of the first inning, then took advantage of numerous Anderson County miscues to claim an 8-3 win in the opening game of the Eighth Region tournament, being played at Simon Kenton High School.

    The Bearcats had several chances but never could get the key hit. The Anderson defense gave North Oldham three unearned runs, effectively taking away any chance to play small ball and manufacture runs.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats draw North Oldham in regional

    Don’t look now, but Anderson County could make a run for another Eighth Region baseball championship.

    The Bearcats would appear to be a slight favorite in the upper bracket of the regional tournament, which starts Monday at Simon Kenton High School.

    The Bearcats, who have won five of their last seven games, including two in last week’s 30th District tournament, will open the tournament against 29th District runner-up North Oldham at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 30.

  • Fiscal court buys former health department building

    The Anderson County Fiscal Court voted unanimously Friday morning to purchase the health department building on Main Street.

    The building will soon be the new home of the Anderson County Sheriff's Office, once the health department moves into its new facility near Walmart.

    The fiscal court emerged from a closed session and voted to buy the building for $275,000. It will pay for the building with excess fees turned over each year by the sheriff's office, which range between $30,000 and $50,000.

    LOUISVILLE – Ryan Ratliff grimaced as the cushioning in the high jump pit enveloped him.

    He had just nicked the crossbar enough to dislodge it for the third time at 6-04 to go out of the state Class 3A Track and Field meet Saturday at the University of Louisville.

  • Bearcats hold off Collins for district title

    The field wasn't the only thing sloppy at Collins High School on Thursday night.

    Anderson County (14-15, 5-1 in the district) took advantage of several early miscues by the Titans (18-6, 5-1) and then held on for a 10-7 victory and the 30th District Championship.

    “I was really proud of the way we came out early and played small ball, put the pressure on and capitalized off their mistakes,” coach L.W. Barnes said. “
