    Hardin: Why no felony charge?

    Former volleyball coach Bob Hardin said in an interview last week that he doesn’t understand why the man cited with a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree assault wasn’t charged with a felony for third-degree assault.

  • BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Healthy Garmon to direct Bearcats

    John Paul Garmon is healthy again.

    That news alone is enough to make Anderson County basketball fans happy as the Bearcats open the season on Dec. 2.
