  • COLUMN: Ready or not, tourney time is here

    It's safe to say that the 2013 baseball-softball season has been one full of surprises around Anderson County.

    Not many expected the Anderson County High School softball team to be sitting at 21-9 heading into this week. Few really thought the Lady Bearcats would spend some time in the Top 25, although they dropped out last week. And not many really thought of Anderson as a legitimate threat to make its first state tournament appearance since 2008.

  • TRACK: Eight Bearcats qualify for state meet

    LEXINGTON – Eight might be enough for some people, but not for Anderson County track.

    Last Thursday, at Lafayette High School, eight Bearcats qualified for seven events this week's Class AAA state meet meet, to be held Saturday at the University of Louisville. It is the highest number of Anderson entries in recent years, but Anderson coach Robert Meacham sees his team's showing as a preview of what could be some stellar track years on the horizon.

  • Net Cats shut out in rain-drenched regional tournament

     To say the Region 8 tennis tournament experienced a wacky week is an understatement. Saying it did not go as Anderson County had hoped is not.

    The Bearcats and Lady Bearcats were shut out of state qualifiers in a week that might have been dominated by the weather more than anyone's serve or backhand. Monday's first round was delayed, delayed again, then eventually called after a few matches because of rains that threatened all week.

  • State champs!

    The Anderson County Middle School softball team captured the Kentucky state championship Saturday night with a 3-2 win over previously undefeated Scott County in the final game at Cardinal Run Park in Lexington.

    Scott had defeated Anderson, 10-2, in a pool play game earlier in the tournament. The first two games of the tournament were pool play, sending teams to a single elimination tournament format later in the tournament.

  • TRACK: Eight Anderson performers advance to state meet

    (UPDATE: As of Sunday afternoon, all eight performers named below have been officially listed in the state meet by the KHSAA.)

    Eight Anderson County High School track performers have advanced to the state meet, to be held Saturday at the University of Louisville.

  • UPDATE: Parents arrested as ‘Hoarders’ nightmare on Beth Drive continues

    UPDATED FRIDAY, 6:45 P.M — Two people are now behind bars after police found them and their 2-year-old child living in a home filled with animal and human feces, and garbage reportedly piled several feet high throughout.

    Michael W. Hutchens, 24, and Anna G. Mauer, 24, both of 104 Beth Drive, Lawrenceburg, were each charged with one count of second-degree wanton endangerment.

    They are both currently lodged in the Shelby County Detention Center and are likely to be arraigned by video Monday morning in Anderson Circuit Court.

  • BREAKING: ‘Hoarders’ nightmare unfolding on Beth Drive

    Police and child protective services removed a 2-year-old child and two adults who have apparently been living in squalor so bad it stunk from the street in front of their home at 104 Beth Drive.

    There are reports of dead animals in the home, including what could be a decomposed cat, rats and what appeared to be cat feces.
