  • Searching for the next level

    SHELBYVILLE – At times, Anderson County's quest for volleyball success might seem like a never-ending cycle.

    It seems to be one filled with slick spots just when things seem to be getting over the proverbial hump. It's in the history of the program and often rears its ugly head in key matches, like last Tuesday's at Collins, that seem to summarize the Lady Bearcats' climb to where they think they should be in the Eighth Region.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats get first win

    Anderson County defeated Garrard County, 24-16, in the Pigskin Classic at Danville Saturday. Sophomore quarterback Zack Carmichael completed 11 of 13 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted once.

    Carmichael was named Most Valuable Player as the Bearcats are now 1-1. See the full story in the Aug. 29 edition of The Anderson News. 

  • Club plans 3D archery shoot for Saturday

    A 3D archery “fun shoot” is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25 at the Anderson County Sportsman’s Club, located on Old Joe Road near the Bluegrass Parkway.

    The shoot is from 8 a.m. to noon, and organizers said it will be a good way to tune up for the Sept. 1 deer season opener.

    Cost is $10 for adults $5 for those 11 to 15 and free for shooters 10 and under.

    Divisions include open, bow hunter and youth.

    Participants will be able to select from 30 3D targets, and can shoot for fun or score.

  • God’s view on racism is crystal clear

    I want to talk about a very touchy subject this week: racism.
    What does the Bible tell us about racism? I think a lot of people look down on other ethnicities at times. It might be an off color joke or just stereotyping a group. I don’t have to be candid with this.
