  • ‘He always had a smile on his face’

    In a county dominated by Democrats, he became what is believed to be the only Republican to serve as its judge-executive.
    As chairman of the school board, he was involved in perhaps the most controversial education decision ever made: closing Western High School in 1989.
    Yet through it all, Tommy Cotton remained a person beloved by nearly everyone who knew him, both in politics and in life.

    Anderson County competed in the Wolverine Open at Western Hills High School in Frankfort. In a very tough field, the Anderson boys placed ninth, well behind champion Henry Clay. The Anderson girls were 12th as Trimble County took the championship.

    Anderson’s highest note was a high jump win from Ryan Ratliff, who had also won three days before at Boyle County.

     

  • BLOG: Knight has earned his spot in UK history

    Brandon Knight, you have earned your spot in Big Blue history.

    I fell in love with basketball when Louie Dampier and Pat Riley were leading Rupp’s Runts into their place in Kentucky basketball lore.  I can’t say I really remember that much about that team. I was too young to really appreciate it and over the years things have blurred considerably.

    What I do know is that in the ensuing years, when the Kentucky Colonels needed that red, white and blue ball to go through the basket in a clutch situation, Little Louie was the man they called upon.

  • SOFTBALL: Can't kill clock on the diamond

    There is no clock-killing on the diamond. Anderson County softball learned the hard way Thursday night.

    Franklin County, ranked 19th in the first statewide poll, scored all eight of its runs with two outs on the way to an 8-3 win over the host Lady Bearcats Thursday evening. The Lady Flyers, a team loaded with juniors and seniors, took advantage of five Anderson errors and several crucial mental mistakes to post its second win in as many games this season.

    The Anderson freshman game at Scott County has also been called off because of the inclement weather.

    The Anderson varsity, which lost to Louisville Mercy on Monday, returns to action Thursday, hosting Franklin County at 5:30 p.m.

  • BASEBALL: Boyle slips past Bearcats in extra-inning slugfest

    Anderson County can't seem to get anyone out on the baseball diamond.

    The Bearcats gave up 16 runs for the second consecutive day as Boyle County overcame four Anderson home runs to win 16-15 in an extra-inning slugfest at Boyle on Tuesday.
