    White became teary eyed Saturday night after hearing her name called as the winner of this year’s scholarship program Saturday night.

    “It’s the highest honor,” White said in an interview Monday afternoon. “I even cried. Junior Miss is a big deal. It was overwhelming.”

    White said she and the 18 other girls in the program came a long way from when practices started over three weeks ago.

  • Earning respect? Anderson singles advance in regional tournament

    FRANKFORT – The call for respect might be one of the most overused motivational ploys in all of sports, but it worked for Anderson County tennis on Monday.

    Stung by what they perceived as a bigger disrespecting than Aretha or Reba ever got, the Bearcat and Lady Bearcat singles' tennis players turned in one of the best days ever for Anderson at the regional tournaments being held in Frankfort. All of the Anderson singles advanced to the second round, with two moving on to the regional quarterfinals, played Tuesday after press time.

  • Primary set for Tuesday
