  • Anderson fortunes still unclear as teams hit home stretch

    Entering the final stages of the 2017 spring sports season at Anderson County, the crystal ball is as murky as it was when the seasons started six weeks ago. About the only things certain are that the Anderson teams will play and no one knows how long they will stay alive.

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