    By Mickey Patterson, Landmark News Service

  • Lady Cats wide awake, romp to fourth straight title

    The wake-up call had been made over a month before and Anderson County made sure there would be no napping in the 30th District Tournament.

    The Lady Bearcats captured their fourth consecutive district softball title with a 6-2 win over Collins in Wednesday's championship game played at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

  • Aldridge no-hits Spencer in district

    SHELBYVILLE – Mia Aldridge wasn't particularly sharp, but don't try to convince the Spencer County bats of that.

    Pitching for the first time in almost two weeks, the Anderson County junior threw a five-inning no-hitter as the Lady Bearcats routed Spencer, 10-0, in the first round of the 30th District Tournament Tuesday night at Rocket Stadium.

  • Bearcats oust Spencer in district

    SHELBYVILLE – Mason Baker appeared to have a bit more hop in his jump. He stretched his arm more than he'd ever done.

    Spencer County batter Nathan Connard's soft line drive just eluded the Anderson County shortstop's glove in the seventh inning of the 30th District baseball tournament last Tuesday.

    When the ball hit on the outfield grass, Josh Brown's no-hit bid was over.

  • God allows us to find quiet in the chaos

    By Larry Coleman, Faith Columnist

    “Why? Because I said so.”

    How many times in our lives have we heard those words or even uttered them ourselves?

    I wonder how many of us use these words without ever understanding what causes us to do so? That is where their significance lies.

     Many years ago as a learner, as a teacher and finally as a parent I finally decided to investigate why we use them. It all started when I first read the exchange between God and Abraham recorded in Genesis 22.
