    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.

  • 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.
