  • Head Start coworkers remember ‘great teacher, person’

    About 11 months ago, two women stood at the door of Rhonda Napier’s home getting ready to ask a favor of a woman they knew would help them in anyway she could.

  • Seven Bearcat wrestlers qualify for state

    CECILIA – The rankings meant little to Anderson County wrestlers on Saturday.

    While few gave the Bearcats much chance of making much noise in the Region 2 Tournament, held Saturday at Central Hardin High School, Anderson defied the rankings, qualifying seven wrestlers for the state meet.

  • Cotton's road to return qualifies as Biggest Winner

    Zach Cotton might have dropped nearly 100 pounds in the past year, but the only TV show he would ever make is “The Biggest Winner.”

    It makes little difference if he wins the heavyweight championship at this week's state wrestling tournament or even medals. Just being there after two years away from the sport puts the Anderson County High School senior among the class of the most successful.

  • Friday's big, but next week is coming

    It is the rivalry that has evolved into, well to be brutally honest, something less.

    Ok, Ok. Before you want to check my sanity when I make such a statement about Anderson County and Franklin County, hear me out.

    It’s still big, but no longer rates somewhere between Ultimate Smackdown and Armageddon.

  • District basketball tournament to be on internet radio

    The Pegasus Sports Network will provide radio coverage of the 30th District basketball tournament, to be held starting Monday, Feb. 21 with the game between the Eminence and Shelby County girls at 6 p.m. The Anderson County vs. Eminence boys' game will follow.

  • Lady Bearcas turn tables on Owen

    Anderson County got revenge on Owen County in a big way Monday night when the Lady Bearcats rolled 54-36 at Owenton.

    Anderson turned things around from Owen’s 54-41 victory on Jan. 22. That had been Anderson’s first loss to an Eighth Region team since 2009 and knocked Anderson’s aura of regional invincibility to the ground.

  • Lady Bearcats heat up, rout Woodford

    It appears that Anderson County heated up before the weather did.

    The Lady Bearcats torched visiting Woodford County with an 8-0 start and kept up the heat with one of their best defensive efforts of the season on the way to an easier-than-expected 54-39 win Friday night.

    Eriel McKee led Anderson with 16 points and, it seemed at least, as many steals and deflections.

  • Bearcats able to smile as losing streak ends

    You just thought you had seen everything that could happen to Anderson County basketball happen in 2011.

    Until three minutes remained in the first half of Saturday night's homecoming game with Grant County, that is. Leading 22-21, the Bearcats appeared to have made a defensive stop. A layup attempt by Grant's Xavier Thompson rolled around the rim.

    And rolled. And rolled, getting slower. Finally, the ball came to a complete stop on the bracket holding the rim to the backboard. Such a situation calls for a jump ball but Grant retained possession.

  • Anderson swimming has good regional

    The Anderson County High School swimming team made its biggest splash ever in the Region 3 meet, held Friday and Saturday at Falling Springs Recreation Center in Versailles.

    The Bearcat boys scored 26 points, the highest total ever for an Anderson team at the regional meet. The Bearcats finished 14th in a field of over 20 teams.

    The Anderson girls were shut out of the scoring.

  • Rogers signs with Midway

    Rogers recently signed during a ceremony at Anderson County High School.
