  • Hoops hopefuls head to camp

    They may not be tall enough to make the NBA, but the campers at the Glen Drury Bearcat Basketball Camp have worked hard to improve their game and most importantly have fun.
    The 2013 Bearcat camp lasted four days, from June 3-6. Held in two locations, the camp included 120 students in grades three through nine at the high school and kindergarten through third at Saffell Street Elementary.
    Coaching the children were 60 staff members, 50 of which are high school students.

  • Mudcats looking to learn roots to see where they can go

    They have the ability to become champions. Now they have to learn how to earn the big trophies.
    That is how Central Kentucky Mudcat coach Chris Copenhaver sees his team as it embarks on the 2013 summer season. The Mudcats, a 16-and-under team made up of Anderson County High School players, were scheduled to open the season last week.

  • Family has tugging in their hearts

    There is no mud pit waiting for the loser.
    And it’s certainly not a tug-of-war that calls for putting the biggest, baddest and strongest dude at the anchor spot in the line.
    When the Kentucky Truck Tuggers get together, the equation is simple: Sheer power plus skilled drivers equaling utter craziness.
    “Sometimes we end up tied and we have to turn around and do it all over again,” grins Anderson County resident Eddie Wiley.

  • COLUMN: We want to share your news

    Cleaning out the mail box, I ran across some real dandies last week. They are the kind that make me want to go find my old Kris Kristofferson 8-track and sing along.
    “Why Me, Lord?”
    Really, when you are in this business you get all kinds. Many notes are from very nice people who say nice things about a certain article or our coverage in general. Sometimes, those notes come in when they are least expected but most needed.
    All I can say about those is a very heartfelt, “Thank you.”

    The suspicions of conspiracy theorists seem to have been confirmed in recent weeks with the revelation that the IRS has been targeting specific groups and individuals for stricter scrutiny, such as members of the tea party movement, religious groups and other so-called conservative entities; it seems that even some families who have adopted were placed under their microscope.
    To add fuel to the fire, it now seems that the NSA has been collecting surveillance data from United States citizens through the monitoring of phone calls and e-mails.
