  • Farmboy work ethic key to Bearcats’ success in 2016

    When I fire up the tractor and roll in the hay

    Light up a bonfire at the end of the day

    Taking a sip from mama’s Mason jar

    I ain’t scared to work, that’s how I was raised

    Live by the Bible and taught how to pray

    Sow my crops where the river meets the sky

    I’m a F.A.R.M.B.O.Y.

    Yes, I’m a farmboy till the day that I die.

    --J.D. Shelburne

  • Tradition drives Lady Bearcats to remain at top of region

    There are traditions like turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving. A ball dropping in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. The Grand Ole Opry playing on Saturday night in Nashville.

    Then there are TRADITIONS.

  • Bearcats, Lady Cats Love Playing for Hometown

    It’s just home. Anderson County, that is.

    It’s not perfect in any way. It’s got a lot of great qualities. It’s got its flaws. Got its drama.

    And in the sports world, it certainly has had its share of great times. And Anderson County has had the down times too.

    But it’s home to the Anderson County Bearcats and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • Owen County gunning for first Sweet 16 berth

    Owen County is the small school with big dreams in 2016.

    And those big dreams are fueled by a huge front line, led by one of Kentucky’s top players.

    After more than a decade as one of the Eighth Region’s most consistent programs, Owen is a solid pick to earn the school’s first state tournament berth.

  • Simon Kenton expected to continue reign

    It might have been a surprise when Simon Kenton and Anderson County played for the Eighth Region championship last season, but it should not have been.

    Both teams were expected to be rebuilding, but for the third straight year, the schools were the last two standing in the region. Just like it has been six of the last eight seasons.

    There could be another clash in early March.

  • Close to his Hometown

    J.D. Shelburne hails from across the county line, but he’s had a tie to Anderson County basketball before he was ever able to shoot a 3-pointer.

    “I was named J.D. after Jimmy Dan Conner, an Anderson County legend!” Shelburne says of Kentucky’s Mr. Basketball in 1971.

    Shelburne, whose given name is John David, is one of the rising stars of country music and will be in town Saturday to help the Anderson County High School basketball teams tip off the basketball season with the 23rd annual Cat Madness celebration.

  • General Cable to expand

    A company that has been part of the Anderson County community for more than 40 years is expanding its operations.

    General Cable Industries Inc. is relocating assets to Lawrenceburg announced Gov. Steve Beshear on Monday.

    General Cable, a wire and cable manufacturer, expects to create more than 54 positions and invest more than $2.5 million into the project.

    “When a company decides to consolidate its services, it’s rewarding when they decide to locate those operations in Kentucky,” Beshear said in a statement.
