  • Another bad audit for county

    Last year’s audit of the Anderson County Fiscal Court’s finances wasn’t good, and neither is the one just released by the state auditor.
    From credit card purchases for items not explained on receipts to employees being paid without signatures on time cards, state Auditor Crit Luallen pointed out multiple problems with the fiscal court’s financial management, just as she did the previous year.

  • Pot grower’s nightmare

    Whoever had roughly $100,000 worth of pot growing near the old Southern States building on Highway 44 is going to be mighty disappointed the next time they stop by to water their plants.
    The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and Kentucky State Police used machetes Monday morning to chop down 47 fully budded marijuana plants in a secluded area almost directly behind Rite Aid.
    No arrests were made, but an investigation is ongoing, according to a news release from Chief Deputy Joe Milam.

  • Franklin torches Anderson for district title

    Everything anyone wanted to know about Franklin County’s romp past Anderson County on Friday night could be found on the stat sheet.


    The story of Franklin’s 56-24 win for the Class 5A, District 6 championship was right there, shouting for all to take a look: Ryan Timmons, eight carries, 175 yards, three touchdowns. An average of 21.9 yards per carry.


    Not a bad night for the junior wide receiver who is considered one of the top talents in Kentucky.

  • COLUMN: Franklin speed makes Flyers scary good

    Notes written while juggling the remote over the weekend...

    You have to give Franklin County a lot of credit. The Flyers have as much speed as any team that has played at Anderson County in a long time and Ryan Timmons showed why he's considered one of the cream of the crop in the class of 2013.

    Suffice it to say, Timmons is a jet, one of the fastest I have ever seen play against Anderson County.

    The 56-24 decision emphatically gave Franklin the district championship that many were saying should just be mailed to Anderson County in the pre-season.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats looking for advantage in trip to East Jessamine

    Just like nearly everyone thought it would, Anderson County's football game at East Jessamine on Friday night will play a major role in the Kentucky post-season landscape.

    But unlike the pre-season publications, including The Anderson News, which saw this one as the showdown for the district championship, it will just be for second place in Class 5A, District 6. And that is almost as big as winning the title.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Gallant Bearcat effort falls short against Woodford

    Woodford County scored early in the second half, then hung on to beat host Anderson County, 1-0, in the boys' District 25 Soccer Tournament semi-finals last Wednesday.

    Woodford went on to take the district title with a 3-0 win over Western Hills the following night. The championship match was moved to Woodford after overnight rains left the Anderson pitch unplayable.

    The teams played to a scoreless draw in the first half with Anderson hanging tough with the highly regarded Yellow Jackets through the break.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Shelby ends Lady Bearcat season

    Homestanding Shelby County ended Anderson County's hope of getting to the Eighth Region tournament with a straight-set win in the 30th District volleyball tournament last Tuesday. The Lady Rockets advanced to the district final with a 25-20, 25-22 win.

    Shelby fell to crosstown rival Collins in the final.

    Anderson ended the season at 12-23.

    Lady Bearcat Sierra Jones was named to the All-District team by the coaches.

    No other information had been made available to The Anderson News at press time.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Woodford nips Lady Bearcats for district title

    Few gave Anderson County's girls any kind of a chance against Woodford County in the District 25 soccer tournament final last Thursday.

    Woodford was, well, Woodford. That means a perennial Top 15 team, one that has, for the most part. And one that had beaten Anderson 3-0 during the regular season.

    To top things off, the district final, originally scheduled for Frankfort's Sower Soccer Complex, was moved to Woodford's home field after rains last weekend left that pitch unplayable in the eyes of the tournament organizers.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcats' regional opener postponed
