  • TRACK: Bearcats can't get warm at Heart of the Bluegrass


    Suffice it to say the Heart of the Bluegrass track meet was not a heart-warming experience for Anderson County on Saturday.

  • Young Lady Bearcats drop two during rugged week

    Anderson County softball might be trying to set a record for the youngest lineup ever in varsity softball.


    No official records are really kept but one would be hard pressed to find a high school varsity team starting a pair of eighth-graders and a sixth-grader. There are no seniors and only a pair of juniors on the roster.


    But somehow, Anderson is holding together against the perennially tough schedule Lady Bearcat coach Brian Glass puts together. Despite being only 7-8, Anderson is receiving votes for the state’s Top 25.

  • Wells to play for Hanover College

    Anderson County High School senior Neal Wells has accepted an offer to play football at Hanover College, located at Hanover, Ind.


    Wells made the decision official last Thursday.


    “I like the location and small classes,” said Wells, who expects to compete for playing time as a wide receiver and punter.


    “They have a tremendous football tradition,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said.


    Hanover, an NCAA Division III school, finished 7-3 last fall.

    Recycling has been suspended due to a break down of the recycling truck, County Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway announced Thursday morning.

    Recycling will resume April 27 on the regular schedule.

    “Sorry for the inconvenience,” Conway said.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats erupt for district win over Shelby

    This one was far from a classic.

    About the only things that resembled the 11-inning thriller Anderson County and Shelby County put together in the Eighth Region championship game last June were the names on the front of the jerseys.

    Classic? Far from it.

    But Anderson, at least, was not complaining after taking a 10-3 win and virtually guarantee itself a bye in the first round of the 30th District Tournament in late May.

    Fired county employee Lea Beasmore was shut out last Thursday night in her $1.5 million sexual harassment lawsuit against the fiscal court, but that doesn’t mean she’s done trying.
    Her attorney, Ken Henry, confirmed Monday that Beasmore “is considering her options” in appealing the jury’s decision to the state’s Court of Appeals.
    “Every losing party has the right to appeal,” Henry said. “We’re looking to see if there are any appealable issues.”
