  • TOP SPORTS STORIES OF 2011 -- No. 1: Bearcats advance to state finals

     

    The year of 2011 was an eventful one in Anderson County sports with many different stories worthy of being in the Top Five. Some of the stories were surprises, others were tributes to sustained excellence. However, when trying to decide which story generated the most local interest in 2011, one stands well above all others.

    And it really is not close.

    Anderson County High School had fielded some great football teams over the years, but never had the Bearcats been able to win as much as a regional championship.

    The Lady Bearcats overcame a sluggish start, took control in the second quarter then blew things open in the third frame for their best finish in three tries in the Mercer tourney.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Best team might not be the happiest in Saturday's Armageddon

    In case you missed it, there is a little basketball game being played in Lexington on Saturday. To most of the world, Louisville at Kentucky is a little blip in the screen, maybe an encounter that would warrant watching, perhaps even setting the DVR.

  • Robert B. Turner Elementary Spelling Bee Winners
  • Christian Academy hosts party
  • Do you study or just leave God tips?

    I have had two people tell me within the last week how we just need to know and follow the basics of the Bible.
    One of them was a family member and another was a close friend. Both of them basically said we just do our best and stressed that serious focus on understanding and studying the Bible was not really necessary.
    I think this is pretty common thinking for a lot of professing Christians. However, I think the Bible tells us quite the opposite.
