  • Bat Cats drop two at Madison Central

    Anderson County dropped a pair of games in a three-team triangle event at Madison Central High School on Saturday. The Bearcats dropped a contest to the host school in the opener, then fell to Conner in the second game. Madison Central went on to defeat Conner to complete the day.

    Madison Central, now 13-2 on the year, got five runs in the first inning and that was all the Indians needed to defeat the Bearcats, 7-3, in the event’s opening game. It was also Madison Central’s first home game of the season.

    If Ally Moore pitches like this when she is not feeling well, what will she do when she is full strength?

    Moore held the Cougars, ranked No. 16 in the state in the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association poll, hitless while striking out seven and walking one.

    Many of us who remember the March 1997 floods in Kentucky recently had uncomfortable pangs of foreboding as storm systems dropped heavy amounts of rain freight-trained across the state.

    It looked like another 1997 for a day or so. Small, normally docile neighborhood creeks suddenly filled basements, eroded roadways and carried away belongings.

    By Ciara Hyatt, Cooking columnist

    Balance is key in everything we do.

    Dancing all night is just as important as yoga in the morning. Relaxing on the couch and listening to the rain is just as important as taking a long walk in the sunshine.
