  • COLUMN: Team Tweak

    If you say you foresaw what we have witnessed unfolding on the basketball court the last two weeks, you probably should give serious consideration to a career change into the world of fortune telling.

    Or you are lying.

    Come on now, did you REALLY see Kentucky in the Final Four after the 72-67 debacle at South Carolina back on March 1.

    You hear about Lake St. Clair, Mille Lacs, Lake Erie and the upper Mississippi River as waters that produce the best smallmouth fishing in the United States.

    As far as catching numbers of smallmouth with many of those larger than 4 pounds, you can’t argue with the sentiment. However, to catch the largest specimens in the world, you need to fish in Kentucky and Tennessee.

  • Experienced Brown is newcomer to Anderson track program

    If the Anderson County track program has become a relay, it might be that new coach Keith Brown is expecting to run a strong anchor leg.

    Brown takes over as the school's fourth head coach in the last six years, but unlike his predecessors, he brings a wealth of experience to the Anderson program.

    “I started coaching at Harrodsburg High School in 1990,” Brown says. “I was (Hall of Fame coach) Alvis Johnson's assistant coach there until 1997, when I took over as head coach.”
