  • Meet Kentucky's best dispatcher

    Jennifer Mitchell never got a drop of water on her while helping to save a stranded family from drowning in the Kentucky River earlier this year.

    In fact, Mitchell never came within a mile of the river during the rescue effort, but her role in getting the family safe to shore was as important as those who manned rescue boats or plucked the family from its stranded boat.

  • Bearcats roll past Mercer

    Bearcats roll past Mercer

    By John Herndon

    Sports editor

    HARRODSBURG -- Anderson County junior Travis Phillips took a pair of Seth Carmichael passes for touchdowns and intercepted a Mercer County pass late in the first half to propel the Bearcats to a 42-13 romp past Mercer on Friday night in Harrodsburg.

    Phillips did his damage all within a 66-second span that saw the Bearcats break open a 7-7 tie.

    "Travis was huge," Anderson coach Mark Peach said. "He was everywhere. He is very tough to tackle in the open field."

  • Six and counting

    Anderson County wanted to make quick work of an over-matched Berea boys' soccer team on Saturday.

    Romeo Nava made sure of it.

    The senior found the net with a goal just 19 seconds into the contest, propelling the Bearcats to a 5-0 win, their sixth straight.

    Nava's  shot was practically uncontested and was a preview of things to come.

    While Anderson only added one more goal, from Steven Pulcifer, before halftime, the Bearcats were firmly in control and Berea never seriously threatened.

    ‘Sensational’ editorial misrepresents library

    To the editor:

    In last week’s editorial, Mr. Carlson attempted to imply that the Anderson Public Library is squandering taxpayer money while gouging local taxpayers for every cent possible. The library was not contacted before this editorial was printed in order to clarify any of the information presented. I would like to take the opportunity to do so now.
