  • Banana thrown from bus shatters truck window

    Tommy Vaughn brought his Civil War file by the office recently and had some additional information on the photo that ran June 18.

    He said he had been interested in Civil War history since a small boy.

    Most of the men in the photo fought for the Confederacy. Their names are on the Civil War statue in front of Anderson County Courthouse.

    Vaughn’s great-grandfather, John Paul Vaughn, was from Estill County, Ky.

  • Bearcat hoops completes summer schedule

    Basketball season is nearly five months – and a lot of cooler temperatures – away, but that does not mean hoopsters can lounge and do nothing.

    The Anderson County High School boys’ basketball team completed its summer schedule last week, offering some mixed results but hope for a big year in 2014-15. The Bearcats were only 3-3 in full games, which were played at Asbury University’s team camp, but Bearcat assistant coach Bryan Hyatt says that is misleading.

  • Lacrosse team celebrates season

    The Anderson County boys’ lacrosse team finished the 2014 season with a 5-12 record, but coach Chris Harrod termed the year a success.

    “Every category in the stats book showed a major increase in numbers,” Harrod said.

    Senior Dillon Harrod led the state with 73 points (52 goals and 21 assists), at least 10 points better than anyone else in Kentucky.

    Harrod was selected as a first team all-state midfielder and second team all-state as an attacker.

  • Davis-Smith duo should make Pelicans a hot item

    Notes to be blown up by a firecracker …

    Other than watching some local, ahem, experts discuss the NBA draft on Twitter last week, the most interesting tidbit came when Russ Smith was taken by the Philadelphia 76ers, then shipped to the New Orleans Pelicans quicker then John Hancock could have signed the Declaration of Independence.

    For much of his college career, I doubted Smith.

    He was too small. Too streaky.

    He always answered the critics with too many ways to win. The guy can play.
