  • What is at stake when Anderson plays Shelby

    Even though Anderson County has no chance of winning the top seed in the 30th District Tournament and Shelby County can't break even unless it wins every game from here on out, there is plenty at stake when the Anderson boys host Shelby in the second game of Wednesday's double header.

  • Tapped out: City eyes 7.4% water rate increase

  • Third quarter blitz buries Lady Bearcats

    South Oldham used a 10-0 run late in the third quarter to post a 73-63 win over Anderson County in a match-up of two of the Eighth Region's top teams Friday night in Crestwood.

    Anderson had erased a 44-38 deficit when Mackenzie Cann and Corrin Robinson connected on 3-pointers but South Oldham responded with a 10-0 blitz over the next 1:40 to take control. Mary Dye, who scored 23 points for South Oldham, bookended the run with a 3-pointer and a steal that ended with a pass to Emily Housley for a layup that made it 54-44.

  • Simon Kenton defeats Anderson

    The scoreboard might have read differently the story line was the same Saturday night.

    Anderson County stayed close but could not close the deal at Simon Kenton. The Pioneers led most of the game but with less than two minutes to play, Anderson was within striking distance, trailing by five points. Simon Kenton made the key plays down the stretch, however, to post a 72=60 win.

    The loss was Anderson's eighth in nine games with the margin being the biggest in the string.

  • Proposal pegs Parkway as spot for industrial use

    A map proposing locations for industrial, commercial and residential construction will be discussed Monday night during a public hearing.
    Developed by a group charged with updating the county’s comprehensive plan, the map includes a recommendation that the area near the intersection of the Bluegrass Parkway and US 127 be developed for a future industrial park.

  • Things changed, but stayed the same

    Forget that the old Anderson County-Shelby County rivalry was supposed to have died. Forget the fact that Collins High took most of Shelby's athletes when the new school opened in August.

    None of that will matter when Shelby visits Anderson tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 2. There won't be a Sweet 16 berth on the line. It won't even decide the top dog in the 30th District, like the old rivalry did.

    But tonight is simply the most important basketball game of the season for the Anderson County boys’ basketball team.

  • Super speller

    Clayton Fields is no stranger to Anderson County’s Championship Spelling Bee.

  • Another close one goes against Bearcats

    Experience is nearly always the best teacher, but it is sometimes cruel.

    “I am fine,” Anderson County boys’ basketball coach Glen Drury said Friday after his team dropped a 62-55 decision to visiting South Oldham. “I am fine, but I might not have been when I first started coaching.”

    He’s learned that things happen. He believes that a team can fight through and get better or it can pack things in and start getting ready for the summer.
