  • Insurer vows to leave city, may run for mayor

    The agencies that insure city and county government don’t have business licenses, prompting one local insurance agent to say he shouldn’t have to buy licenses, either.
    Outraged that the city threatened him a hefty fine and possible closure for not purchasing a business license, Rodney Goodlett of Goodlett Insurance Group said Monday that he has refused to pay for the license on principle after reading nearly a year ago in The Anderson News that neither the Kentucky Association of Counties nor League of Cities have business licenses.

  • SOFTBALL: Collins slips past Lady Bearcats in extra innings

    About all that Monday's 30th District softball showdown revealed was it should be a close race between Anderson County and Collins.

    Of course, most who follow the high school game already knew that and there were few surprises in Collins' 4-2 win in eight innings.

    Collins pitcher Jeneca Thomas, a senior, limited Anderson to three hits and struck out five.

    But Thomas also walked three and got into a pair of late-inning jams when the Collins defense, committed three errors.

  • BASEBALL: 'We had that sucker in our hands'

    VERSAILLES – The only good thing about losing in 12 innings, like Anderson County did at Woodford County Saturday night, is that the baseball game was not played after Memorial Day.

    Then, taking a loss after blowing a 3-run lead or stranding a potental game-winning run 90 feet from home plate would be considered devastating. Saturday, however, it was merely a setback for an Anderson team that still has designs on its fifth regional championship.

    Disappointing, certainly.

  • Former Bearcats finding their calling

    CAMPBELLSVILLE – You might say that several Anderson County athletes are doing just what their college promised.

    They are finding their callings at Campbellsville University.

    The campus, tucked away in this south-central Kentucky town, is not one frequented by ESPN. Local media and an occasional visit from the big boys in Lexington or Louisville, both over an hour away, might have to suffice.

  • BREAKING SPORTS NEWS: Bearcats get past Spencer in 12
