  • Man jailed after scuffle with Franklin County deputy

     A Lawrenceburg man who allegedly scuffled with a deputy over a bag containing methamphetamine was jailed Feb. 2 and charged with trafficking and possession of marijuana.

  • ‘Sexy nightie’ email to minor lands Sheila Court man in jail

     A man who allegedly emailed a minor female that he “saw a sexy nighty at Walmart” and that he would “love to see your gorgeous body in it” was arrested Jan. 30 by the Kentucky State Police, according to an arrest citation filed in Anderson District Court.

  • Quire wins homecoming queen
  • Struggles of Bearcat season go beyond reason

    You could search every inch of the earth and still not find a plausible explanation for the struggles the Anderson County boys’ basketball team have experienced this year.

    You can point to the injuries and sickness that have plagued the Bearcats. That would make a little bit of sense as to why a team that entered the season as one of the favorites to win the Eighth Region and was ranked in the state’s Top 25 stood at 8-12 after going 1-2 last week.

  • Penny ends suspense, becomes Bearcat career scoring leader

    There might have been more suspense to Cobe Penny setting the Anderson County boys’ basketball scoring record than anyone might have liked.

    It really wasn’t like the night his older brother C.J. set the now second-place mark with his final basket in his final game. Cobe still had five regular season games and the post-season to play, so, barring injury or a monumental blizzard, it was just a matter of when, not if.

  • Lady Cats pass tournament prep, beat Grant

    It was a tournament prep test for Anderson County and the Lady Bearcats graded out as proficient last Tuesday.

    Anderson certainly wasn’t perfect in a 65-52 win over Grant County that was a bit closer than the score would indicate. But the Lady Bearcats did what they had to do in defeating last year’s Eighth Region runner-up.

  • Lady Bearcats remain perfect in district

    Anderson County had already sewed up the top seed in the 30th District Tournament, but the Lady Bearcats were still thinking about the post-season last Wednesday.

    The Lady Bearcats scored the first eight points, then went on to rout district foe Shelby County, 72-35 in what Anderson hopes will be a preview of the district tournament opener. Shelby will be the No. 4 seed in the tournament.

    Lauren Boblitt led Anderson with 15 points while Amiah Mason added 13. Kayla Bruner paced Shelby with 14.

  • Attention gotten

    Anderson County was playing as if it was more interested in the school’s homecoming festivities than the girls’ basketball game at hand.

    The Lady Bearcats, rated near the top of the Eighth Region and a heavy favorite according to the computer rankings, were tied with visiting Tates Creek five minutes into Friday’s contest. Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell had seen enough. He summoned five new players off his bench and made the wholesale change.

    It worked.
