  • Chili supper to benefit Fairgrounds

    Reopening Fairgrounds Drive-In will take more than a couple buckets of elbow grease to scrub away the damage done by a fire New Year’s Eve.

  • Murdered woman’s cats rescued following ‘malicious’ treatment

    The man suspected of murdering a Clay Burgin Road woman earlier this month may have boarded a half dozen of the woman’s cats in an outbuilding with no food or water before fleeing south.

  • Spinning real life lessons

    As I sat in the KFC Yum! Center Sunday night, I was in awe of my surroundings.

    And I am not talking about all the bells and whistles of Louisville’s downtown arena. It’s nice, no question, and has every toy an arena could want and then some. But, to someone who would be as happy in a Ford Escort as a Mercedes, it was far from the main story of the evening.

    Instead, there were chuckles. There were smiling children. And there were adults laughing uncontrollably at Big Easy Lofton, Bull Bullard and Firefly Fisher.

  • Different lineup but same result

    And you thought the only place where things were only different this basketball season in Shelby County.

    While most are aware that Collins High School is part of the split of what used to be Shelby County, not many expected Anderson County to go into its game with the perceived threat to 30th District supremacy with a makeshift lineup. In the end, however, it really did not matter.

  • 'Winning ugly' beautiful to Bearcats

    Anderson County will get a feel for one of the teams expected to challenge the Lady Bearcats for the Eighth Region championship when Owen County comes to town on Saturday afternoon. It will be the first of two regular-season meetings between the Lady Bearcats and Lady Rebels.

    But first, the Lady Bearcats will host Western Hills on Thursday night, Jan. 20. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • Anderson girls get costly win over Eminence

    Anderson County jumped to a 16-4 lead after a quarter then continued to build the margin on the way to a 68-16 win over visiting Eminence on Friday night.

    However, the victory could have been costly as freshman Eriel McKee, who led Anderson with 14 points, suffered what was thought to be a strained knee ligament early in the third quarter. McKee dressed for Saturday's game with Collins but did not play.

    Twelve different Anderson players scored as they remained unbeaten in district play and moved to 11-5 on the season.

  • Owen slips past Bearcats

    Owen County broke a tie with two minutes to play, then held on to beat visiting Anderson County, 61-57 in boys' basketball action Friday night.

    Anderson, which had been clinging to a one-point lead going into the fourth quarter, saw Owen convert a turnover to take the lead 56-54. Then after the Bearcats missed a shot, the Rebels nailed a 3-pointer to go up by five points.

  • Bearcats host old rival, district favorite

    Even though his team stood at 6-7 through last weekend's games, Anderson County boys' basketball coach Glen Drury believes his team can still make some noise toward a successful season.

    “When we started, we never thought this would be a year when we would have a high (won-loss) record,” he said after Monday's practice. “We are really after being a good post-season team.”

  • All-Time Team to be honored Friday

    Members of Anderson County's All-Time basketball team are scheduled to be honored in a brief ceremony prior to the Anderson County-Western Hills basketball game on Friday night. The ceremony will begin as soon as the junior varsity game is completed.

    The All-Time Team was selected by readers of The Anderson News in conjunction with the series “100  Years of Basketball” celebrating this, the 100th season of the sport in Anderson County.
