    Mom responds to coach’s letter

    To the editor:

    This is in response to a letter by Joel Cotton printed in the June 3 edition of The Anderson News. The headline was “Little League parents need to be realistic.”

    I am the overzealous, aggressive mother with the arrogance and deranged sense of self Mr. Cotton wrote about.

    He has no right to call me or anyone these things. This is a man who calls himself a good coach. That he is not. He should get his facts together before he lashes out at me through the paper.

    SPORTS BUZZ for July 1: What were some of the best individual performances by Anderson County athletes this year? 

    The 2008-09 school year was one of the best in Anderson County sports history, without a doubt.  There were some great, great performances through the year by individuals and teams.  I am going to list some of the best that I saw.  I simply cannot go to every event and missed some of the great moments, but here are some I will not forget.

    Hunted or hunter?

    For Anderson County basketball, it could be a lot of both in 2009-2010. Hunted, since the Bearcats are the defending Eighth Region champions and return three starters and some players that played key reserve roles.

    Hunter since Anderson will not the the obvious favorite – that honor will go to arch-rival Shelby County – and the Bearcats have to fill some major holes, including the ones left by all-stater C.J. Penny and starting guard Landon Jenkins.

  • Boat safely during holiday weekend

    More boaters will be on Kentucky waters during the upcoming July 4th holiday weekend than at any other time of year. Families will head to the water to fish, tube, water ski and enjoy a long weekend away from work. Boats full of vacationing friends will navigate crowded waters to find the best spot to watch fireworks. In the midst of all this fun and festivity, it’s easy to forget that the Independence Day holiday is often the year’s busiest and most congested weekend on the water.
