  • Right, wrong ways to bust scam artists

    As the elderly woman cried in her living room Monday morning, I visualized holding the oak club I keep in my truck and fetching the bad guy I hoped would show up a good lick right in the chops.
    Instead I held a camera and settled for the fact that if he did show, Det. Bryan Taylor would bust his chops the legal way and I could put the photo of him doing so on this week’s front page.
    As is generally the case with yellow-belly scum who prey on the elderly, the guy was a no-show.

    So, what’s the “Secret Identity” of the Anderson County High School Marching Bearcats?
    The third-best marching band in the state, that’s what.
    In front of 10,000 screaming fans during Saturday’s state finals at Barren County High School, the team finished its season with its highest finish in school history, falling just short of state champion Madisonville North Hopkins and second place finisher Grant County.

  • COLUMN: Special leaders guided special team to playoffs

    It has been 40 years.

    Actually, if you want to get technical about things, it will be 40 years next week, the second weekend of November, since Anderson County football made its first appearance in the state playoffs.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats to play before Pacers game

    The Anderson County Bearcat basketball team will participate in a scrimmage against Pulaskie Southwestern on Saturday, Nov. 3 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the home of the NBA's Indiana Pacers. Tip-off is at 2:30 p.m.

    It is believed to be the first time an Anderson team has had the opportunity to play in a professional arena since playing in several high school-pro double headers with the old Kentucky Colonels of the ABA.

  • FOOTBALL: No easy task in playoff opener

    Typically, football coaches like to build up the next opponent, often them as a “sleeping giants” or “a team that is ready to explode on someone.”

    It gets even worse when November rolls around. That's when the playoffs start and every game could, in theory, could be the last one of the season. Added to that reality is the fact that a large number of first-round playoff games end up with scores that might cause scoreboard malfunctions.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats sputter in final playoff tuneup

    If this was a tune-up for the playoffs, Anderson County must have gotten ahold of some bad gas.

    To be sure, Anderson defeated Marion County, 28-12, last Friday at Warford Stadium. Anderson ran its record to 8-2 and was never in serious danger of an inexplicable loss to the 2-8 Knights. But it was not the kind of performance that would put an exclamation point on a fine regular season.

  • OUTDOORS: House Bill 1 protects hunting and fishing rights
