  • Shelby stuns Bearcats on last-second three

    Shelby County's Eric Schreiner banked in a desperation 3-pointer as time expired to lift the Rockets to a 55-54 win over Anderson County in 30th District play Wednesday night.


    “We did everything we could to prevent a three without fouling and he hits one like that,” sighed Anderson coach Glen Drury. “It was bad luck. That is the only way you can explain it. I have never been around so much bad luck in one season.”

  • BLOG: What does Mossakowski's transfer mean to Russell?

    The word that Anderson County High School graduate Jacob Russell had transferred from Eastern Kentucky came rather quietly for someone who had been so highly touted just a year earlier when Russell was a high school senior and was named the state's Class 5A Player of the Year.


    As Ryan Alves, of the Eastern Progress, reported, Russell left EKU after one season in Richmond. He transferred to the University of Kentucky, which could not comment on Russell's decision until he enrolled because of NCAA rules.

  • COLUMN: City would be wise to join broadband parade

    Now that the South Anderson Water District has allowed a wireless Internet provider to place antennas on its water towers, the city would be wise to consider allowing antennas on its water towers, too.
    Once the water district signs off on the deal, businesses outside of the city will have a distinct advantage over those inside, simply because they have a less expensive, more versatile way to connect their businesses to the world.
    Businesses in the city will remain hostage to hardwire applications, and in this day and age that’s simply not acceptable.

  • COLUMN: My earliest football memories

    The only thing I can remember about the first Super Bowl I ever watched on television is that the Green Bay Packers were a part of it.
    Given my age and the length of Brett Favre’s career, I can also deduce that he was the team’s starting quarterback.
    After some Googling and other modern-day research, I’ve determined that my first Super Bowl memories were developed either in early 1997 or 1998. If I could remember whether the Packers won or lost, that would let me know which year, but I truly have no idea.

  • COLUMN: Local chance to learn about heirloom seeds

    Happy Groundhog Day and happy February. We’re one month closer to spring. As I write this, I have no idea whether Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow or not. He lives in Pennsylvania, home of the Steelers. I can tell you that if the sun came out, he saw his shadow and we’ve got 6 more weeks of winter to endure.

    50 YEARS AGO
    Jan. 26, 1961

    She was reported to be fishing and had hooked a big one and in trying to land it fell in the boat.

  • COLUMN: What does worship really mean?

    This article appears on a page on which a list of churches in the area is provided with the encouragement to “Worship At The Church Of Your Choice This Week.” I appreciate that the newspaper provides this service to the community, but I wonder how many know what the word “worship” actually means.
    The word ‘worship’ is a difficult word to define. Our English word comes from the Old English, which was originally ‘worthship,’ which means to ascribe worth to something or recognize something as worthy.
