  • Lady Cats down but never out

    Not much went right on Anderson County's final possession last Tuesday, but the Lady Bearcats will take it.

    Shooting 31 percent for the game and trailing archrival Shelby County, 50-49, with 23 seconds to play, Anderson came out of a timeout with what seemed to be a game-winning strategy: Point guard Mia Aldridge was to drive the lane for a layup or get fouled. At least that was the first option.

  • We should know better than give up on Lady Cats

    With just over four minutes left, last Tuesday, I put my camera down.

    Thankfully, I didn’t pack it up, but I was tempted.

    Anderson County’s girls’ basketball team was trailing Shelby County, 44-34 and had been down by as many as 14 in the third quarter. Little was going right, Shelby was dominating and the Lady Rockets were well on their way to clinching the top seed in the 30th District Tournament.

    A few Anderson fans made their way to the exit.

  • Bearcats to host blazing South Oldham

    Anderson County will see where it stands in relation to the top of the Eighth Region Friday night when the Bearcats host South Oldham at 7:30 p.m.

    The Dragons were supposed to be good when the season started, but they have exceeded expectations. South stood at 15-1 at the end of last week – the one loss was to Somerset in Garrard County's Christmas Tournament – and had vaulted to the top of the region in the computer rankings.

    By Kevin Kelly, Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    Newly fallen snow has a way of awakening the spirit of adventure in kids and grown-ups alike.

    It’s also nature’s tattletale.

    As such, a fresh blanket of snow opens a window to new discoveries by revealing which animals inhabit the landscape around us and how they use it during the winter months.

    Animal tracking in the snow exercises the body and mind, and it can be fun for the entire family.

  • Lady Bearcats, Collins try again Friday

    Anderson County’s quest for the top seed in the girls’ 30th District Tournament was put on hold by the snowstorm that pummeled the area last Friday.

    The Lady Bearcats’ game at Collins, which will likely determine the final seedings in the tournament, was rescheduled to this Friday, Jan. 29, at 7:30 p.m.

    The game was originally supposed to be the first game of a boy-girl double-header with the Collins boys playing Oldham County in the nightcap. With the rescheduling, the girls will be the only ones playing at Collins that night.
