  • COLUMN: Local Reds fans relishing pennant race

    There is joy in Reds Country again.

    At least for now there is.

    Being in a pennant race 100 games into the baseball season for the first time in more than a decade will do that to you, you know.

    If some conversations at the Anderson County Invitational for youth league baseball teams are correct, Anderson County is still the territory of the Cincinnati Reds. The passion for professional baseball's oldest franchise is alive and well locally and it has been energized by what is going on in the National League's Central Division.

  • Lady Bearcats hope third time more than a charm

    Anderson County girls' soccer hopes that a gold medal from the Bluegrass State Games is more than just a charm in 2010.

  • Cover girl

    For Emily Drury, riding horses is a way of life.

    Growing up on about 120 acres of land — she says she’s ridden all of them — Drury learned how to ride at the age of 3 and has been hooked ever since.

    “They turned me loose on my first horse, which was a bay walking horse, when I was 3,” Drury said. “We’d ride everywhere. They’d take me up and down the hills, through the creeks and if I fell off they’d make me get right back on.”

    Asked if she instantly fell in love with it, Drury’s response was quick.

  • Carbajal, Beasley team up again, go for national title

    When they walked off the soccer pitch for the last time together, little did Abril Carbajal and Sydney Beasley know the twists and turns of the sport would make them teammates again almost seven years later.

    And they certainly did not think about playing together in the United States Adult Soccer Association national championships.

  • North Laurel ends Anderson run at state

    CORBIN – For more than two weeks, Anderson County's Little League tournament run had been an unlikely meshing of Cinderella with the firepower of the Nimitz Strike Force.

    Unfortunately for the local 11-year-old All-Stars, the dream of Anderson County's first state championship came crashing down in a Humpty Dumpty ending last Tuesday night. The North Laurel All-Stars took advantage of every Anderson mistake and shut down what had been a collection of potent bats for a 12-3 win in the state semi-finals at Strickland Field in Corbin's Rotary Park.

  • ANALYSIS: Here's where your tax dollars go

    It should come as no surprise that the county’s largest public employer, the school system, receives nearly 65 percent of all county tax dollars collected.

    What is surprising is that county government, which includes the judge-executive’s office, planning and zoning, electrical and building inspections and the highway department receives only slightly more than the public library.

  • Anderson girls' soccer wins Bluegrass gold

    The Anderson County High School girls' soccer team took the gold medal in the Bluegrass State Games competition, held Saturday and Sunday in Versailles.

    Earlier in the tournament, Anderson had beaten Ryle, 1-0, and Highlands, 2-0, to advance to the final.
