  • Renewing your mind through Jesus Christ

    There is a great story about a man that had many sheep. His sheep were thriving and healthy except for one big problem. His property was also occupied by many coyotes that had developed a taste for sheep.

    Now the man thought of all his options. He could get a gun and kill the coyotes. This would help the sheep, but not so good for the coyotes. He could trap the coyotes, and put them in cages, but that wouldn’t change the coyotes. They would just be trapped and at the first opportunity if released, they are going for some lamb chops.

  • Start the school year with quick, easy weeknight meal

    Whether you have school age children or not, the morning of the first day of school can be stressful. The traffic is heavier, you run the risk of getting stuck behind a school bus, and you’re cursing yourself for not leaving your house 15 minutes earlier. By Friday you’ll have the hang of it, but for now take a deep breath.

  • Anderson field problems magnified in fall sports seasons

  • What a haul!

    Joshua Phillips was on a roll.

    Having just hauled in one exceptional catfish a couple of hours earlier, while fishing at Miller’s Lake off Ninevah Road, the volunteer firefighter landed what he said is the largest catfish he ever caught.

    “I caught a 16 1/2-pounder two hours before that,” he said. “It’s not quite as impressive as the 28-pounder I caught, though.”

  • Lady Cats look to renew winning ways

    A renewal of spirit seems to be the best description of Anderson County girls’ soccer as the Lady Bearcats get ready for the 2017 campaign.

    Coming off an uncharacteristic 8-13-2 season that was riddled by injuries, the Lady Bearcats are relatively healthy physically and mentally as they open with Louisville Male Monday night in the Mercy Academy Battle of the Turfs.
