    Anglers treasure the fall months in Kentucky.

    The shortening periods of daylight and the cooler, drier air bring welcome relief from summer and bring on the fall colors. It’s during this time of transition that some of the best fishing of the year can be had.

    For trout anglers, fall offers a smorgasbord of opportunities.

  • Elder bows out in first round of state tourney

    Anderson County High School golfer Hayden Elder shot an uncharacteristic 12-over 84 in the opening round of the Leachman/KHSAA Boys State Golf Tournament Friday at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    Elder, a junior who had carded a 74 in the Region 4 Tournament at Maywood, did not survive the individual cut of 76.

    Cullan Brown, a junior from Lyon County, took the individual championship with a two-day total of 139 (66-73), while Louisville St. Xavier won the team title with a 606. St. X had shot par (288) as a team during the first round.

  • Plenty of tricks for a treat

    The family that scares together stays together.

    At least that’s what works for the family of Andrew and Kelly Smith of 202 Dogwood.

    For the past several years the Smiths have gone all-out in decorating for Halloween. “For two or three years we did a ‘Walking Dead’ theme,” Andrew explained. “This year it seemed appropriate to do some clowns.”

    For the past two weekends, Andrew and his children Dylan, 15; Jordan, 13; and Savannah, 11, have been busy disguising their home as an insane clown and freak asylum.

  • State qualifier
  • AMS runners place second in CKC

    From staff reports

    The Anderson County Middle School cross country team turned in one of its best showings ever in the Central Kentucky Conference meet, held last Tuesday in Somerset.

    The Mustang boys finished second to Woodford County, missing the championship by two points. The scores were tied after the first five runners for each team meaning a sixth score had to be counted, giving Woodford the narrow win.

  • Quire blitzes Danville, Owen

    With weeks like last week, Shane Quire might not want the high school soccer season to end.

    The Anderson County junior ripped visiting Danville for four goals in last Thursday’s regular-season finale. The outburst came three days after another four-goal night against Owen County.

    Quire powered the Bearcats to an 8-4 win over Danville and a 7-0 thrashing of Owen County. In between. The Bearcats settled for a tie at Louisville Waggener last Tuesday.

    “When Shane is on his game, he is untouchable,” Anderson coach Khamisi Campbell said.

  • ‘I’m going to the state!’

    Hayden Elder just had a feeling things were going right.

    “He came off the green at No. 9 and said, ‘I am going to the state,’” Anderson County boys’ golf coach Nate Hollon said.

    Elder knew what he was talking about last Tuesday. The high school junior finished with a two-over 74 at Bardstown’s Maywood Country Club to earn his spot as one of three individual qualifiers for the state tournament. Elder will tee off for the state meet at Bowling Green Country Club Friday morning.
