  • Do you prefer the good or bad news first?

    Which do you want first: good news or bad
    When someone says, “I have good news and bad news,” which one do you prefer to hear first?
    Joe went to his doctor who posed that question to him.
    “Give me the good news first,” Joe said.
    “You have 24 hours to live,” the doctor told him.
    Clutching his chest, Joe said, “If that’s the good news, what’s the bad news?”
    The doctor said, “I meant to tell you yesterday.”

  • February the month to catch walleye and sauger from the bank

    By Lee McClellan

    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    Many anglers would drive a few hundred miles for a chance to catch an 8-pound walleye or a limit of tasty sauger. Kentuckians only have to drive to Campbellsville and head south on KY 55 to the Tailwater Recreation Area below Green River Lake. You don’t even need a boat.

  • Christian Academy’s look at football not surprising

    When Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg let it be known recently that the school is looking at the possibility of adding football to its sports program, the most common reaction was a bit of surprise.

    It should not have been.

    Sure, football is an expensive proposition. Real expensive.

    Outfitting a player can cost well over $600 per person at the outset, although most of the equipment can last several years. Equipment, such as footballs and field maintenance, is not cheap either.

    Goal posts and bleachers cost money. So do scoreboards.

  • Christian Academy looking to add football

    The old football field on North Main Street might be hearing the sounds of pads popping again very soon.

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg has announced it is exploring the possibility of adding football to its athletic program in the 2016-17 school year. Pam Brough, executive director of the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce, sent an e-mail to various local businesses last week requesting support for the academy’s football program.

  • Bearcats tame Spencer

    TAYLORSVILLE – Anderson County had come to the time of basketball reckoning.

    It was still early, but the Bearcats trailed Spencer County, 17-10, after a quarter that saw the Bears do as they please, popping the nets, hitting 7-of-12 shots in those first eight minutes. In addition, Spencer had a home-court crowd, often thought of as the most influential in the Eighth Region, rocking.

    Anderson coach Glen Drury had seen enough.

  • Freshmen fuel Lady Cat run to top district seed

    SHELBYVILLE – Anderson County’s win at Collins last Friday night might not have been one to turn heads, but it was a beauty to the Lady Bearcats.

    Anderson put together a 46-27 victory that came a bit tougher than the score would indicate, but that didn’t really matter to the Lady Bearcats. They clinched the top seed in the 30th District Tournament, which will be held in three weeks at Anderson County High School.
