  • We live not for ourselves but God

     If you ask most people who claim to be Christian why God put on flesh, became fully human while still remaining God, left the glories of heaven and lived upon the earth for 33 years, the answer will likely be; “He came to save me.”

  • Manger scene available at Central Baptist

  • Two charged after sheriff’s office, DEA seize kilo of fentanyl

    Two Lawrenceburg men investigators say are tied to an international drug organization were arrested Tuesday night for possession of 1 kilogram of the powerful drug fentanyl, according to Sheriff Joe Milam of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.

    Gadiel Ortiz-Flores and Brian Hensley, both of 412 East Court St., were arrested on a federal charge of conspiracy to distribute fentanyl after the sheriff’s office and the Lexington DEA Task Force combined to make the bust following a lengthy investigation.

  • Difficult December can yield memorable March

    Things didn’t go exactly as planned for Anderson County basketball last Friday night.

    That’s a major league understatement.

    With about four minutes to play, Anderson’s Cobe Penny drove to the basket, flipped in a runner, then converted a three-point play. The scoreboard showed that Woodford County still led the Bearcats, 44-40, but the Anderson student section was getting rowdier, the Bearcats had a bit more energy and it looked like that decisive run to change the outcome was about to get underway.


    It was the first day of December but Anderson County was not feasting on a holiday diet to open the Christmas or boys’ basketball seasons.

    Woodford County was more like tough steak and spinach Friday night, controlling the Bearcats almost from the outset to post a 58-48 win, spoiling the Bearcats’ opener. Woodford, which had already played two games, remained unbeaten at 3-0.

  • Anderson swimmers looking for strong showings despite changes, low numbers

    It has been a year of change for the Anderson County High School swim team but the Swim Cats keep striving for some strong showings in the 2017-18 season.

    The Bearcats have only 11 swimmers -- six boys and five girls -- which puts them at a major disadvantage in team scoring. Those numbers do not allow Anderson to field complete teams to compete in every event, but Anderson does have some solid swimmers who could make a push for regional honors and possible berths in the state swim meet.

  • No moral victories for Lady Cats

    One could look at Anderson County’s effort in a 67-58 loss to powerful Louisville Mercy last Thursday and get a good feeling about the Lady Bearcats and their potential.

    After all, the Lady Bearcats suited up only two players with significant experience and rely heavily on freshmen and eighth-graders. But there they were, a young group of lady Bearcats who had pulled within 52-49 when Jaclynn Ruble buried a three-pointer with 4:34 to play.

  • Anderson archers win qualifer meets

    The Anderson County Middle School team and the Robert B. Turner Elementary School team took first place in the competition.

    In addition, the Bryce Foster took first place in the boys’ middle school division while teammate Michael Bishop placed fifth.
