  • What does the County Clerk’s Office do?

    By Jason Denny

    Anderson County Clerk

    When most individuals think of the Anderson County Clerk’s Office, motor vehicles come to mind. However, motor vehicles are just a small portion of our job responsibility.

    Kentucky is one of only a few states that have numerous job titles in one office.

    Below is a short list of some of the duties that the county clerk’s office is responsible for:

    •Taking, recording and indexing the minutes of the fiscal court.

  • High school sports give best bargain

    You’ve got to love this time of the sports year.

    Even though Anderson County is waiting a week to kick it off, high school football gets under way in Kentucky this weekend.

    Most of the other fall sports at the high school level got started with the real thing this week, too. Golf has been hacking for about three weeks now and cross country takes to the hills very soon.

    Other than big post-season games, it is the best time to just sit back and watch.

  • Optimism high for Lady Bearcats

    By his very nature, at least when talking about his Anderson County girls’ soccer team, Jason Earnest is one of those guys who would focus on the sliver of sunshine in the midst of a rainstorm.

    To say Earnest is optimistic is kind of like saying the sun rises in the east, so that makes the larger than normal smile he’s wearing as the 2014 season opens significant.

  • Youthful, talented Bearcats look to surprise

    Knowing what to expect from the Anderson County boys’ soccer team as its season begins might prove to be one tough task.

    On the one hand, the Bearcats lost five seniors from last year’s 6-11-1 team that lost to Shelby County in the first round of the 30th District Tournament. Gone are Garrett Pritchert, Joe Rose, Daniel Peach, David Simmons and Ethan Woodrow.

    But back is a nice group of young players that has the potential to develop into a solid team by season’s end.

  • Familiar face looks to direct Lady Cats to new heights

    Bob Hardin’s volleyball journey has never been easy.

    And ride that put Hardin in charge of the volleyball program at Anderson County High School has been simultaneously circuitous and direct.

    A long-time assistant who had occasionally directed the Lady Bearcats over the last three seasons, Hardin was officially named head coach of the program on July 13, two days before fall practice was set to begin.

  • Taylor Co. wins JOY Tournament

    Taylor County used a two-under 70 from Ellen Kehoe to shoot a combined 319 for the championship of the JOY Invitational girls’ high school golf tournament held Saturday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    Taylor County was six strokes better than second place Boyle County with Scott County coming in third at 330. The tournament drew 78 girls’ high school golfers from around Kentucky.

    Kehoe took individual medalist honors.

  • Toles controls Dix River, leads Bearcats to big day

    It was a week of ups and downs for the boys’ golf team from Anderson County High School.

    The Bearcats turned in one of their best rounds away from the home course at Wild Turkey Trace on Saturday, but the team had a down day in a loss at Scott County on Thursday.
