  • Woodford pulls away from Lady Cats, clinches district's top seed

    Woodford County scored twice in the final 15:03 and it was enough to pull away from Anderson County. The visiting Yellow Jackets claimed a 3-1 win in a battle of Top 20 teams Wednesday night.

    The win, in all likelihood, clinched the top seed in the 25th District tournament for the Yellow Jackets. Anderson will be the two-seed.

    After a scoreless first half, Woodford County's Taylor Kelly put the fifth-ranked Jackets in front from the right wing, angling her shot just out of the reach of Anderson goalie Emily Mager.

  • Biggest regular-season game in program history?

    There is no such thing as a one-game season until the tournaments begin next month. Just don't tell those anticipating the girls' soccer showdown set to take place on the Anderson field tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 9.

    Anderson County vs. Woodford County.

    Or as they say on the east side of the Kentucky River, Woodford County vs. Anderson County.

    Last week's state coaches' poll says No. 5 (Woodford) vs. No. 15 (Anderson).

    Two weeks ago, that same poll said it was No. 7 vs. No. 8.

    'I can't beat the city' on wooden crosses

    To the editor:

    My dad and uncle’s wooden cross meant so much to my family that I have been battling the city for almost four months to keep it up in the cemetery.

    I’m sure the people in the community are tired of hearing about it.

    I have realized now I can’t beat the city. The city has won this fight.

  • COLUMN: Tell-tale signs say winter is just around the corner

    Happy September. Is it me, or is everyone else feeling fall in the air? Doesn’t it seem just a tid bit early?

    We were talking at the library the other day and someone had noticed the nuts dropping already. My friend Jane said the squirrels were just gobbling them up. You know what that means?

  • Bearcats looking to repeat success in CKC tourney

    It has been almost a year since the Anderson County boys' golf team captured its biggest win in many campaigns.

    After 18 holes of play, the Bearcats and Scott County were tied for the championship of the Central Kentucky Conference tournament. The playoff lasted just one hole as the Bearcats claimed their 2008 conference championship on their home course at Wild Turkey Trace.

  • Fans, Peach glad Mercer back on schedule

    Mark Peach had heard the criticisms.

    They started coming his way in 2006, his second season coaching football at Anderson County, and intensified the following year. Even though the Bearcats went undefeated in the regular season, there were some that were focused on pointing out that some traditional rivals had disappeared from the schedule.

    At or near the top of that list of wished-for opponents was Mercer County, a team the Bearcats had played on a near annual basis for nearly 30 years.

  • COLUMN: Simple precautions can help avoid flu

    Swine flu, the flu and cold season. They’re all scary things to even think about and dread. Winter and fall are two great seasons, but the one thing that makes them bad is the flu and colds.

    The flu can turn deadly if not taken care of, as can a simple cold. That’s all the more reason to remind ourselves of how to stay away from them.

  • EDITORIAL: Lead, follow or get out of the way

    Want to know a dirty little secret?

    People who live in bedroom communities are eventually taxed to death — unless they leave before they die.

    That fate can be foiled, but only if that bedroom community wakes up in time to realize that adding an economic development base to its mix can stave off its demise.
