  • Bowman makes own name as Wendy's Heisman finalist

    Forrest Bowman never really compared well with his older brother on the basketball court. Now, he's glad he didn't.

    The senior at Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg turned his experiences in trying to live up to some self-imposed expectations into being named one of 20 state finalists for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award. Records were not readily available, but it is believed that Bowman is the first Anderson County resident to advance so far in the selection process for the prestigious award.

  • Cross country team has tough time at regional meet

    The Anderson County cross country team had a tough day in Saturday's Region 6 cross country meet, held at Masterson Station Park in Lexington. Both the Anderson boys and Anderson girls finished eighth in the region and the Bearcats were shut out from individual qualifications as well.

    Paul L. Dunbar won the boys' team competition with Tates Creek, Lafayette and Henry Clay all qualifying for the state. The top five individuals not on those teams also qualify.

  • COLUMN: A big-time football lesson

    The playoff pairings showed Anderson County was hosting a playoff football game Friday night.

    Could have fooled me.

    I even checked the mileage on my car. The odometer had barely moved since I left my office on the hill across Highway 127 from Anderson County High School. Apparently, I had worked the game at Warford Stadium, but I could have sworn I had been to Cooper High School, just outside Cincinnati.

  • Stellar pick
  • Cooper ends Bearcat dreams of a repeat

    It was not your typical de-throning. Not by a long shot.

    There was nothing fancy. There were no last-second shenanigans. It was total domination.

    Cooper, the new kid on the block, but one steeped in football tradition, did not just end what many thought was Anderson County's legitimate shot at repeating as Region 3 champions Friday night. The visitors from northern Kentucky quickly smashed that thinking, leaving no doubt who would advance to the second round of the Class 5A playoffs with a 48-0 thrashing.

  • Republicans win big in Anderson County

    Incumbent state Rep. Kim King (R-Harrodsburg) soundly defeated challenger Kent Stevens (D-Lawrenceburg) in unofficial results from Anderson County in Tuesday’s election, 55 to 45 percent.

    Andy Barr, the Republican challenger to incumbent Congressman Ben Chandler, soundly defeated him in Anderson County as well, 56 to 48 percent.

    In the city council election, incumbent Steven Rucker was the only seated council member to lose and will be replaced by George Geoghegan.

    For school board, Donna Drury defeated incumbent Steve Higgins.

  • Early voters packing precincts

    A cold but clear morning has voters flocking to polling places at the middle and high schools.

    When the polls at both locations opened at 6 a.m., lines were already forming and both parking lots were already at or near capacity.

    County Clerk Jason Denny predicted last week that if the weather was decent voter turnout in Anderson County could reach as high as 70 percent, a 5 percent increase from the presidential election in 2008.

  • FOOTBALL: Cooper thrashes Bearcats in playoff opener

     

    There was no secret to Cooper's 48-0 thrashing of Anderson County in the first round of the state Class 5A football playoffs Friday night.

    Cooper made the plays and held on to the ball. Anderson turned the ball over six times and its normally high-powered offense could generate little.
