    The Anderson County girls' basketball team was to have played Oldham County in the final first-round game of the Eighth Region Tournament Tuesday night after press time for the print edition of The Anderson News.

  • Lady Bearcats hold on to district crown

    TAYLORSVILLE – All business. Anderson County was all business Friday.
    And that meant there would be no funny business in the championship game of the girls’ 30th District Tournament, held at Spencer County High School.


    The Lady Bearcats never trailed. They jumped to a quick lead, held off Collins’ best punch then imposed their will enough for a 57-48 win to capture their third straight district title. “It never gets old,” smiled freshman Eriel McKee, who has been a member of all three of those district titles.

  • A season of misfortune for Bearcats

    (Editor's note: Anderson News sports editor John Herndon looks back at the just completed season for Anderson County boys' basketball. This article contains his observations and opinions.)

    Anderson County basketball, the 2010-2011 edition, can certainly identify with the old New York Yankee.

  • Spencer ousts Anderson from district tourney

    TAYLORSVILLE – In the end, Anderson County’s limitations made sure the Bearcats’ post season would end quickly.


    Always a few inches too short, the Bearcats had no answer for Spencer County’s Logan Dunbar, who scored 17 points, including what might have been the biggest two points of last Tuesday’s 30th District semi-final.

  • Girl, 15, raped while passed out

    An 18-year-old Lawrenceburg man told police he was high on LSD, marijuana and whiskey when he allegedly raped an unconscious 15-year-old girl, according to a police report.

  • King not happy after pro-life bill aborted

    State Rep. Kim King (R-Mercer County) said she’s disappointed after a bill was killed in the state’s House of Representatives that would have required medical technicians performing pre-abortion ultra-sound procedures to offer the mother a chance to see the unborn fetus.
    King, who says she has been a pro-life advocate for 30 years, testified before the House’s Health and Welfare Committee last Thursday in an effort to bring the issue, which was already approved in the Senate, to the House floor for a vote.
