  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats overcome Cann's absence, defeat Bryan Station

    Anderson County overcame the absence of Miss Basketball finalist Makenzie Cann to defeat visiting Bryan Station, 56-45, in girls' basketball action last Tuesday.

    Anderson outscored the Defenders in every quarter to post their 14th win in 17 games. “It was one of those games I felt confident all the way through,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said. “We were in the driver's seat the whole game and were able to pull away. It wasn't as early and might not have been (a margin) as much as we like, but it was a good win.”

  • BASKETBALL: Balanced Bearcat barrage blasts Frankfort

    Anderson County needed this one. And the Bearcats needed a win in the worst way.

    The broad smiles pasted across their faces showed the Bearcats had delivered Saturday night with a 66-47 win over Frankfort.

  • BASKETBALL: Sacred Heart rallies to defeat Lady Bearcats in LIT semis

    LOUISVILLE – It might have been a case of forgotten identity Saturday.

    At least Anderson County, where most of the players have been together for six or seven years, seemed to forget what made the Lady Bearcats a Final Four team last year and the pre-season No. 1 team in Kentucky this year.

  • BASKETBALL: South Oldham explodes late, romps past Bearcats

    The pre-season predictions? Apparently, South Oldham did not bother to read them.

    The Dragons were supposed to be rebuilding. They were supposed to be pretty good. They were even considered one of as many as eight or nine teams with a chance of winning the Eighth Region. But dominant? Not when they were replacing four starters from last year's Eighth Region champion.

    Friday night, South Oldham showed why it has moved to the top of the region in the computer ranking system.

  • BASKETBALL: Spencer outlasts short-handed Bearcats

    TAYLORSVILLE – A strange season got stranger for Anderson County boys' basketball last Tuesday.

    “This has been a weird year,” Bearcat coach Glen Drury said moments after his team had absorbed an 80-74 loss at Spencer County. “I have never, in 33 years of coaching, had a kid get chicken pox.”

    But it happened last Tuesday when the Bearcats found out less than six hours before tipoff that all-region guard Christian Estes would not be available due to a bout with the disease. Junior Josh Brown started in Estes' slot.

  • Pipeline would pump $1.2M a year into taxing districts

    The Bluegrass Pipeline would pump an estimated $1.215 million a year into local taxing districts once it’s fully operational, according to data released by the company proposing to build it.

    If that’s the case and the funds are distributed as is other ad valorem tax revenue, the Anderson County School District would by far be the largest recipient and would receive an additional $766,422 each year from the pipeline, based on its current property tax rate at $5.52 per $1,000 of assessed value.
