  • Youth football league battles low numbers

    When the teams lined up for the final game of the 2012 edition of Anderson County youth football, there were no contrasting jersey colors.

    There was no other way of telling who was on offense or defense other than removable yellow beanies stretched over the eligible receivers.

  • Playing Like the Pros

    Anderson County was a far cry from the Indiana Pacers or Sacramento Kings Saturday afternoon but the Bearcats did just fine in their scrimmage against Southwestern at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

    Actual score was not kept, but it appeared Southwestern, which made the  Final Four of the Sweet 16 last year and is one of the 12th Region favorites this season, won by about 10 points. About 100 fans of the teams were able to watch the game and Lawrenceburg resident Ed McKee was the public address announcer for the game.

  • Bowman makes own name as Wendy's Heisman finalist

    Forrest Bowman never really compared well with his older brother on the basketball court. Now, he's glad he didn't.

    The senior at Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg turned his experiences in trying to live up to some self-imposed expectations into being named one of 20 state finalists for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award. Records were not readily available, but it is believed that Bowman is the first Anderson County resident to advance so far in the selection process for the prestigious award.

  • Cross country team has tough time at regional meet

    The Anderson County cross country team had a tough day in Saturday's Region 6 cross country meet, held at Masterson Station Park in Lexington. Both the Anderson boys and Anderson girls finished eighth in the region and the Bearcats were shut out from individual qualifications as well.

    Paul L. Dunbar won the boys' team competition with Tates Creek, Lafayette and Henry Clay all qualifying for the state. The top five individuals not on those teams also qualify.

  • Three-peat!

    The Anderson County High School disc golf team wins its third straight state championship.

  • COLUMN: A big-time football lesson

    The playoff pairings showed Anderson County was hosting a playoff football game Friday night.

    Could have fooled me.

    I even checked the mileage on my car. The odometer had barely moved since I left my office on the hill across Highway 127 from Anderson County High School. Apparently, I had worked the game at Warford Stadium, but I could have sworn I had been to Cooper High School, just outside Cincinnati.

  • Stellar pick
  • Cooper ends Bearcat dreams of a repeat

    It was not your typical de-throning. Not by a long shot.

    There was nothing fancy. There were no last-second shenanigans. It was total domination.

    Cooper, the new kid on the block, but one steeped in football tradition, did not just end what many thought was Anderson County's legitimate shot at repeating as Region 3 champions Friday night. The visitors from northern Kentucky quickly smashed that thinking, leaving no doubt who would advance to the second round of the Class 5A playoffs with a 48-0 thrashing.

  • Republicans win big in Anderson County

    Incumbent state Rep. Kim King (R-Harrodsburg) soundly defeated challenger Kent Stevens (D-Lawrenceburg) in unofficial results from Anderson County in Tuesday’s election, 55 to 45 percent.

    Andy Barr, the Republican challenger to incumbent Congressman Ben Chandler, soundly defeated him in Anderson County as well, 56 to 48 percent.

    In the city council election, incumbent Steven Rucker was the only seated council member to lose and will be replaced by George Geoghegan.

    For school board, Donna Drury defeated incumbent Steve Higgins.

  • Early voters packing precincts

    A cold but clear morning has voters flocking to polling places at the middle and high schools.

    When the polls at both locations opened at 6 a.m., lines were already forming and both parking lots were already at or near capacity.

    County Clerk Jason Denny predicted last week that if the weather was decent voter turnout in Anderson County could reach as high as 70 percent, a 5 percent increase from the presidential election in 2008.
