  • 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.

  • Bond goes undetected, sends Harlan County to Sayre title

    LEXINGTON – This James Bond was not a 007, but he was enough for Harlan County last Thursday night.

    Bond got his golden fingers on a loose ball, then, just as his more famous counterpart, found a view to a kill – in the form of an open lane to the basket – Anderson County’s hope of an improbable championship in the Sayre Holiday Classic.

  • Bearcats hold off Sayre in first game of classic

    LEXINGTON – Anderson County seemed poised to rout host Sayre, scoring the first seven points, then building a lead as large as 33-16 early in the third quarter, but had to hold on to defeat the Spartans, 57-48, in the Sayre Holiday Classic opener last Tuesday night.

    “We will take it,” Anderson coach Glen Drury said. “The kids are going to get better. This was the first time we have had to play with a lead and the kids did not have the experience to know how to protect the lead.”

  • District seeding on the line as Anderson takes on Collins, Eminence

    Now the real season begins for Anderson County. Well, sort of.

    The Bearcats' main concern is to get better each week, hoping to peak when tournament play begins. However, Friday's game with 30th District foe Collins will be a factor in how things shape up in seeding the district tournament.

    "We want to play well in all of our seeding games, so this game is very important," Anderson coach Glen Drury says.

    A first-year school formed out of Shelby County, Collins has gotten off to a 7-4 start under veteran coach Curtis Turley, who coached at Shelby in the late 1990's.
