  • Glass emphasizes GPA over all other statistics for Anderson County softball team members

    You can talk about OPS, ERA or RBI, but if around the Anderson County High School softball team, you'd better be ready to talk about GPA.

    That is how Anderson coach Brian Glass wants it, at least.

    Glass has instituted a policy with the Lady Bearcats this year, raising the team's academic standard above that required by the school and by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

    “You have got to make good grades,” Glass said. “The school policy is that if you have two “F's,” you can't play.

    Challenger league a great opportunity

    To the editor,  

    My wife and I share the privilege of raising a special child. Our ‘grand’ son is 10 years old. We recently read about the new Challenger Division of the Anderson County Little League in your paper. We tried to get him interested but he didn’t want to play.

    Then he heard that some of his friends were going to be on this baseball team and changed his mind. We have been to two practices, and they were fun.

  • Not up to a title this year? Not so fast!

    Remember all that talk about Anderson County baseball being way down in 2010? How this was to be the year to get Anderson and break its two-year stranglehold on the Eighth Region?

    Not so fast.

    At least that is what the Bearcats themselves seemed to be saying last week when they took four of five games in the Florida Beach Bash at Fort Walton Beach. Anderson is now 8-4 on the year.

  • COLUMN: Perennials make yards a 'riot of color'

    It’s just so gorgeous outside I can hardly stand it. I had last Friday off and that morning, waiting for the sun to rise, I was almost quivering like a dog waiting for the ball to fly. So much to do, and so lovely to be able to do it.

    The best thing about working outside is being able to see immediate results. It just puts a smile on your face and keeps it there. The spud planting went well, but I’ll have lots more to do as the days move closer to summer.

  • COLUMN: To have a love like theirs

    Family is one thing over which we have zero control.

    Some of us are born into horrible situations and wish to escape as soon as we can. Some of us, however, are born into situations that, although less than perfect, we wouldn’t change even if God gave us the option.

    I’m thankful that I fall into the latter category.
