  • COLUMN: KHSAA gets it right with new soccer alignment

    Finally something that makes a lot of sense came along in the sports world last week.

    Over the last few years, it felt like every day some university is looking for a new home. While Louisville, for example, says it is happy in the Big East, reports linger that the Cardinals would move to the Big 12 in a minute. 

    The Big 10 has 12 teams and who knew that College Station, Texas, located northwest of Houston, is now in the Southeast, the same as Columbia, Mo? For some reason, I just don't see those places having much in common with Gainesville, Fla.

  • BASKETBALL: Anderson teams looking for momentum heading into final month

    The real basketball season is still three weeks away, but the Anderson County teams will be trying to generate momentum over the last three weeks of the regular season.

    District tournaments will begin across the state on Monday, Feb. 20. While the 30th District has traditionally not started until Tuesday of tournament week, official dates will not be announced until the District Tournament meeting, scheduled for Feb. 12.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: No magic for Bearcats in district matchup

    TAYLORSVILLE – This time, there was no magic in a bottle, or more specifically, in a basket for Anderson County.

    The Bearcats saw an early lead slip away then ran out of rallies of their own as Spencer County scored a 51-50 win that threw the race for the 30th District's top seed into a frenzy.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats recover, upend Bryan Station

    The Anderson County girls' basketball team overcame an 8-point deficit to defeat Bryan Station, 56-52,  last Tuesday night at the Anderson gym.

    “We were down by eight a couple of times in the third quarter,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said. “Our defense locked them down a few trips and we put together some scores.”

  • Turnovers jam Rams, but Christian Academy splits pair

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' basketball team recently split a pair of contests, dropping a 60-46 decision to Northside of Louisville but rebounding with a 68-49 win over Mt. Carmel, from eastern Kentucky.

    Turnovers killed the Rams against Northside.

    After looking like they had the game in hand in the first quarter at Northside, the Rams lost their momentum because of the turnovers.

    While Forrest Bowman had come off the bench to give Christian Academy a first quarter boose, the Rams were looking at a 30-20 halftime deficit.

  • WRESTLING: Mat Cats pin Spencer County on Senior Night

    Anderson County romped past Spencer County, 72-9, in wrestling action last Wednesday night. The Bearcats were credited with 12 pins in the match.

  • Hannah Drury spells ‘abbreviation’ to win district spelling bee

    Seventh grader Hannah Drury, after three years of competing in Anderson’s district spelling bee, won the Kentucky Farm Bureau district spell-off on Jan. 19.
    Drury, who is a student at Anderson Middle School, said she’s been competing in the spelling bee since the fourth grade.
    The closest she’s gotten to winning the district bee was in fifth grade, she said, when she finished in fourth place.
    “I can’t believe it,” Drury said of her first place win. “I’m still shaking.”

  • Reader offers thoughts on fasting

    I wrote a column a few weeks ago questioning why I do not see American Christians fasting, or why it is not more a part of our culture.
    I was blessed to get some rewarding feedback from one of my readers, “Pat,” and would like to share some of her experiences that I find inspiring.
    These are her words, not mine, and I hope you may find it interesting and perhaps useful in your own spirituality, and perhaps adopt fasting as a part of your own walk with God.
