    Despite his strident opposition to the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline, Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway predicts that it will eventually be built.

  • FOOTBALL: Second-half eruption sends Bearcats to second round of state playoffs

    Anderson County was reeling. The Bearcats knew it. Cooper knew it.

    Anyone in the stands at Hollie Warford Stadium or even just following the first round game of the state Class 5A football playoffs knew it, too.

    Anderson, one of the favorites to head to Bowling Green for the state championship game, was looking at a 35-21 deficit with Cooper threatening to tack on another touchdown just before halftime. But one of the unfortunate breaks of the game started a chain reaction that resulted in the Bearcats surviving with a 45-35 win Friday night.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats must stop more than Barker to advance on Friday

    It might be easy to forget the real reason Anderson County is hosting Conner for a high school football game Friday night. But that is the nature of the beast these days.

    Contrary to popular opinion, the big story is not that Drew Barker is coming to town. Yes, it's that Drew Barker, the guy that walks on Southeastern Conference water, if you were to listen to some University of Kentucky football fans.
