  • Bearcats grow, rally past Clark

    WINCHESTER – Growing up is never easy. It's not supposed to be, whether it is learning from that first bad grade, first breakup with a girlfriend or the first traffic accident.

    Life happens. You learn to deal with it.

    Football happens too. A team can deal with it in many different ways. The best ones grow up, learning from the mistakes – and the good things – that happen along the way.

  • Promo business learned to deal with success

    Andrew, Nick, Warn, Jay and David had just graduated from Anderson County High School and were poised to enter their respective colleges that fall.

  • God’s mercy shows up in a variety of forms

    I’m sitting on a couch in Hershey, Penn., with my sister, my daughter and my granddaughter, watching the Food Network and thinking, “How weird is this?”

    We’re here on a partial family vacation since only part of our family is here. My sister flew in from California and my daughter, granddaughter and son-in-law drove up from Virginia. My husband and I flew up from Florida.

    We chose to meet in Hershey because we like chocolate. Also, the children of my husband’s late best friend live nearby and they’ve become family to us.

  • No desk, no problem

    As you walk into Mrs. Crystal Darnell’s brightly colored classroom, you will quickly notice that something is amiss.

    There are no desks.

    Well that’s not entirely accurate, there are about three traditional school desks scattered around the classroom. The rest is a hodge-podge of couches, stools, cushioned crates and stylish Adirondack chairs surrounded by plush carpets and pillows.

  • High school, kindergarten enrollment declines

    School traffic might be a little easier to navigate this year if early attendance numbers are any indication.

    According to information provided by school officials, early enrollment figures show a slight drop in enrollment for Anderson County schools.

    The most significant decrease in enrollment numbers is within kindergarten and high school, said Superintendent Sheila Mitchell.

    Kindergarten enrollment is down by 39 students and the high school is short by 37 students compared to last year’s attendance records.
