  • Chicken Swap back on, minus chickens

    The Lawrenceburg Chicken Swap is back on.

    Sort of.

    Just one day after announcing that the popular event was being discontinued due to a statewide ban sales of poultry during events, including swaps, due avian flu fears, organizer Doug Mccanly told The Anderson News that the swaps will continue, just without birds.

    Mccanly said the original decision was made based on information that the ban included other livestock. But when he received clarification from state officials that the ban excludes only poultry, he decided to keep the swap alive.

  • Title hopes end with walk-off homer

    OWENSBORO – It is said that tears cleanse the soul, that they express what words cannot.

    Maybe that is why they were so profuse, so open, Saturday at Owensboro’s Jack Fisher Park.

    In all likelihood, those tears started streaming down the cheeks of the Anderson County Lady Bearcats before Danielle Walls’ home run ball came to earth.

  • Mitchell one of team’s most vocal supporters at state

    The 160-mile drive did not deter Anderson County softball fans from descending on Owensboro last week for the state softball tournament.

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Anderson faithful travel well. Very well. They always have and this year’s state tournament was no exception.

    Anderson didn’t have the biggest group of supporters by any stretch — that honor appeared to belong to state champion McCracken County — but the Lady Bearcat contingent was easily in the top four or five teams on the support scale.

  • Opening win over Central Hardin propels girls to final four

    Anderson Co. 6, Central Hardin 4

  • Curry sets new state HR record

    When Anderson County catcher Bailey Curry blasted a monstrous home run against Male in the state softball tournament Saturday morning, she shattered the state single-season record she already shared.

    Curry’s shot was her 20th of the season, eclipsing the 19 she hit last year. Amber Riddle of Rowan County also hit 19 in 2008.

  • Former Lady Bearcat explains why she picked Kentucky

    Makenzie Cann knew she had to follow her heart.

    A lifelong Kentucky Wildcat fan, Cann followed her dream when she announced last week that she would be enrolling at the University of Kentucky to join the women’s basketball team as a preferred walk on.

    Cann, a two-time all-state selection at Anderson County High School, played her freshman season at the University of Cincinnati, playing in all 31 of the Bearcats’ games and being the team’s fourth-leading scorer. Cann announced she was leaving. Cincinnati in early May.

  • Brown, Jorette named all-region

    Anderson County High school baseball players Josh Brown and Wesley Jorette have been named to the All-Eighth Region team by a vote of the region’s coaches. The team was selected on the basis of play throughout the season.

    Brown was selected as a pitcher. He posted a 6-2 record and had an 0.70 earned run average.

    Brown struck out 73 in 50 innings pitched. Brown also played second base for the Bearcats.

  • Pranked: Class of 2015 puts high school up for sale

    For Sale: Plenty of acreage, open floor plan, indoor gymnasium, basketball court, library, 10 bathrooms and over 100 rooms. Upper classmen not included.

    Last week as a final farewell to Anderson County High School, the class of 2015 decided to put its alma mater up for sale.

    Students claimed they were in the market for something a little bigger and were motivated to sell because of relocation.

    Last Wednesday morning, For Sale signs graced the front lawn of the Home of the Bearcats while toilet paper streamed from the school’s trees.
