  • 85-year-old could walk on DUI charge

    The Anderson County Attorney’s office is appealing a district court judge’s decision that could result in an 85-year-old man not being convicted on a DUI charge.
    Judge Donna Dutton ruled in February that a Lawrenceburg police officer should not have pulled the man over and granted a defense motion to suppress any further findings, including that the man was allegedly intoxicated at the time of his arrest.

  • Anderson track leaps into new season

     

    Anderson County is looking to make a giant leap during this year's high school track season.

    Literally.

    “We come in and jump,” Anderson coach Robert Meacham says with a grin. “We compete in the jumping events.”

    Indeed. The Bearcats jump long. They jump high. They triple jump and they pole vault. Anderson has at least one, sometimes two, who could be contending for a berth in the state meet or a regional championship next month.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats take two in Bowling Green tourney

    Anderson County baseball showed it is far too early to write the Bearcats off in 2013.

    A week after mustering one hit in two games, the Bearcats rolled past Louisville Eastern and Bowling Green to take two of three games in the Bowling Green/Warren County Invitational.

    Anderson did have trouble against Ballard Memorial, mustering just three hits in a 3-1 loss.

    Anderson County softball continues to be impressive early in the season, despite losing its first game of the year during its annual spring break trek to the beaches of Gulf Shores, Ala.

    The Lady Bearcats split two games, defeating Baldwin County but losing to Spanish Fort, both from Alabama, where teams have been playing since late February.

    Against Baldwin County, Bailey Curry smacked three hits and Madison Brummett drove in three runs in a 9-2 win for the Lady Bearcats last Tuesday.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcats explode in fourth to beat Shelby

    SHELBYVILLE – Good teams will make you pay for extra outs, according to the old diamond truth.

    A Shelby County error prolonged the top of the fourth inning and Anderson County showed why it feels it is becoming a good team Monday night.

    The Lady Bearcats had seven consecutive batters reach base – six of them scored – in the decisive inning on their way to a 7-0 win in a key 30th District matchup at the Shelby County athletic complex.

  • COLUMN: Let the debate begin

    Well now, about the only thing left for college basketball in this state is for someone suit up a team from Waddy U. just to split the difference between Kentucky and Louisville.

    Two years and two champions just down the road from each other.

    Maybe a team from Alton or Tyrone can join them?

    Really, though, what a run for the Commonwealth the last two years and it might just continue.

  • What a difference the resurrection makes

    A story is told of an event that took place in the villages of northern India where a missionary was preaching in a marketplace.
    As he finished, a Muslim gentleman came up and said, “You must concede we have one thing you have not, and it is better than anything you have.”
    The missionary smiled and said, “I would like to hear what it is.”
    The Muslim said, “You know when we go to Mecca we at least find a coffin. But when you Christians go to Jerusalem, which is your Mecca, all you have is an empty grave.”
