  • No surprise at Bearcats' start

    This time, the answer seemed to surprise the questioner.

    As we concluded an interview in the locker room at Lexington’s Sayre High School, Glen Drury turned the tables on the only local media member around.

    “Does it surprise you that we are .500 right now?” Drury asked.
    “Nope,” I replied. “Not at all.”

    Drury has won over 400 games and has seen a ton of the unexpected on the basketball court, but he seemed genuinely surprised that one who has seen probably more games he has coached, outside of his family and trusted friends Jimmy Young and Wayne Wilder, would make that statement.

  • No ruling in porn, sex device lawsuit

    The Anderson County Fiscal Court will have to wait to see if a judge will grant its motion to have a woman’s sexual harassment lawsuit against it tossed out.
    Tuesday in Anderson Circuit Court, Judge Charles Hickman did not issue a ruling on the motion, saying instead that he will consider arguments filed by attorneys for the fiscal court and fired county employee Lea Beasmore.
    The hearing lasted only a couple of minutes, and Beasmore was not in the courtroom at the time.

  • Elizabethtown is 'not Top 10 for nothing'

    HARRODSBURG – This time, Anderson County could not even stay close.

    Not for long, that is.

    Throughout a month of playing some of the state’s best girls’ basketball teams, the Lady Bearcats had been in the games, even in a position to pull the upset a time or two. They’d lost by one point to Sacred Heart. They had been within four before running out of gas in the final minutes against Perry Central.
