  • It’s been a real Peach of a run

    Those first few years of the Mark Peach Era around Anderson County football really were times that simultaneously boggled the mind and stretched the imagination.

    Sure, anyone who had remotely followed high school football in the years leading up to his return to his alma mater knew that Peach had been highly successful. He’d been defensive coordinator at Franklin-Simpson High School when the Wildcats made the state championship game.

  • West Jessamine outlasts energized Lady Bearcats in opener

    West Jessamine rallied to win the final three sets after host Anderson County had taken the first to capture the season opener in high school volleyball action last Tuesday night.

    All four sets ended with a 25-23 score.

  • Disability or different ability? Every life is precious

    When a militant neo-atheist like Richard Dawkins spouts off one of his many Darwinian talking points, I rarely give any consideration to what has been said.

    His rhetoric is vitriolic, fueled by a hatred of religion, especially of Christianity. But when someone with over a million Twitter followers says something as acrimonious as a baby diagnosed with Down syndrome should not be allowed to be born, it causes me to sit up and take notice.
