  • Bearcats take second in Bourbon Tourney

    The Anderson County boys' soccer team put on a pair of dominating performances before falling in the championship game of the Stonerside Cup tournament, held at Bourbon County last week. The Bearcats are now 8-3-1 on the season with some big district matchups on the horizon.

    The Bearcats ripped Corbin 5-0 last Tuesday, then blitzed Dixie Heights 10-0 in the second game of the round-robin tournament. Bourbon County, a team Anderson coach Brett Morris described as “fast and athletic,” scored a 4-2 win in what amounted to the championship game of the tourney.

  • COLUMN: Lower the statistics, consider shelter pets

    I love my dog. A simple statement, but so true. For those of you who know me, you know just how true it really is. My dog, Molly, is like my baby… literally.

    I found her abandoned as a small puppy and I fell in love right away. Yes, I’m one of those “idiots” who treats her dog like a family member. And I’m not alone in this category.

  • EDITORIAL: Some students missed historical opportunity

    It’s safe to say that a number of students all across America, even here in Anderson County, missed out on a historic opportunity Tuesday.

    President Barack Obama addressed all of the country’s students through a webcast with one goal in mind: instilling in them the value of education.

    Perhaps if a president had been capable of making such a speech to the parents of today’s students when they were students themselves, Obama’s speech would have been more effective.

  • COLUMN: Being in the mud doesn’t make you dirty

    Just because you’re in the mud, it doesn’t make you dirty. Have you ever heard that? What about don’t judge a book by its cover? That’s something we should all know, and something that brought a lot of meaning to me the Sunday before last at church.

  • COLUMN: Pit bull owners have last laugh

    That laughing you hear (metaphorically speaking, at least) is coming from irresponsible pit bull owners who just finished reading this week’s front page.

    Yep, all the hubris and tough talk from the fiscal court earlier this year about making vicious dogs much more difficult to own now resembles what my dog leaves each morning in the back yard.

    A pile of you know what.
