  • Barber’s nephew gunned down

    The police officer gunned down in a shootout Saturday in Killeen, Texas, was the nephew of a Lawrenceburg business owner.
    Danny Bowman, owner of Danny’s Barber Shop on Main Street, said Monday that he was about to board a plane to Texas, said the officer was his sister’s son, and that other than what he’d read online, he had few details about what occurred.

  • Man toting AK-47 walks Bypass to protest Zimmerman verdict

    A Lawrenceburg man was checked out by deputies and released late Tuesday morning after he told them he was “protesting what is going on in Florida” while carrying an AK-47 rifle and walking north on US 127 Bypass about a mile south of Kroger.
    Dressed on black clothing despite the 90-degree heat around 11:30 a.m., the man was not carrying any protest signs, but deputies said his objections stemmed from the ongoing strife that resulted from George Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict Saturday night in Sanford, Fla.

  • Future Lady Bearcats learn at camp

    Anderson County High School hosted a girls' basketball camp during the week of July 8-12. About 50 girls in grades 1-6, were given the chance to learn fundamentals and get special attention to focus on their techniques.

    “Girls don’t get the same treatment when playing with boys,” said Libby Pike, a senior on the Lady Bearcats' state Final Four team this year. “They wanted to play, but the boys didn’t think they could when I had them at the other camp (Bearcats youth basketball camp).”

  • Batcats rock Danville

    Batcats are All-Americans in Danville.

  • Football coaching turnover a sign of the times

    Anderson County might be the first district favorite in Kentucky history where you will need a roster to know the coaches.

    The Bearcats return 19 of 22 starters from last year's 8-3 team and are generally considered one of the top Class 5A teams in the state. They should be talented, deep and experienced.

    Amazingly, it looks like there will be as many new faces on the seven-man varsity coaching staff as there are in the starting lineup. Such is a simple, yet emphatic, reminder of the tough economic times and that high school sports are not immune.

  • BASEBALL: Mudcats roll in return to diamond

    The Cincinnati area is baseball country, but they don't play a bad brand of the game 100 miles south either.

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats showed that Saturday when they swept a double-header at Boone County High School, located in the Cincinnati suburbs.

    The Mudcats, a local 16-and-under team, defeated the Bluegrass Lions, 8-3, in the opener, then came back to beat the Bluegrass Buzz, 8-5, in the nightcap. Both opponents were teams made up of players from Cincinnati and northern Kentucky high schools.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: On the fast track to success

    A pair of Anderson County High School students hope the fast track they are on leads to bigger things at the AAU National meet.

    Connor Duncan, a sophomore, and Alorra Sims, a freshman, are slated to compete at the organization's biggest meet, to be held July 28-Aug. 3 at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti.

    Another Anderson County runner, eighth-grader Elle Buser, also qualified for the event but has elected not to attend, according to former Anderson coach Robert Meacham.
