Today's News

  • Which came first: stabbing or throwing?

    Did a stepfather stab his stepson first or did the stepson hit his stepfather in the head with a ceramic figurine first?

    That is the question officers with the Lawrenceburg police department are trying to sort out following an incident early last Friday morning at 217 Horn Drive.

    “That’s the million dollar question,” said Sgt. Chad Powell. “Both are being considered victims at this point.”

  • They call him Hunter

    He is perhaps the most appropriately named young man in Anderson County.

    Not only did Hunter Wilson, 12, bag a beautiful 9-point buck during the recent youth hunt season here, the seventh-grader also added a trophy elk to his resume during a youth elk hunt last month in Breathitt County.

    The bull elk weighed about 800 pounds and had a massive 6 by 5 rack that scored an impressive 300 points in the rating scale used to measure its size.

  • District championship on line Friday night

    Friday night. 7:30 p.m. at Oldham County High School.

    And while some would argue it is not the biggest football showdown in Kentucky this week, there is probably no game in the Bluegrass this week that will have more ramifications for the regular season and upcoming playoffs than this one.

  • Champions, finally!

    FRANKFORT – As Woodford County's last hope trickled out of bounds with less than 20 seconds to play Saturday, Anderson County coach Jason Earnest tried to mask his emotion.

    But there was no way he could. He knew that the most that could happen would be a goal kick to kill the clock.

    Earnest sported that smile of satisfaction. He clinched his fist.

    A district championship had been a long time coming and a victory over Woodford County even longer.

  • Lady Bearcats are soccer district champs

    Anderson County built a 2-0 lead, then hung on to defeat Woodford County, 2-1, in the District 25 championship game Saturday afternoon. The tournament was held at Sower Soccer Complex in Frankfort.

    "This is amazing," said Anderson junior Madison Carter.

    Laura Drury gave the Lady Bearcats a 1-0 lead with 9:54 to go in the first half, then Taylor Clark added a goal with an assist from Kara Yeaste with 24 minutes to play.

  • Not a thing of beauty but still a win for Cats

    As far as beauty goes, this one might have been the equivalent of that Ugly Lamp Contest they have at the state fair every year.

    Or Shrek after a bad day.

    But in the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Anderson County found a way to pull off a 29-19 home-field win over upset-minded South Oldham on Friday night.

  • Oldham ends Lady Bearcat volleyball season

    Oldham County scored 10 of the final 12 points of the second game to finish off Anderson County in the Eighth Region Volleyball Tournament semifinals, held at Shelby County High School on Wednesday night.

    Oldham, which won the first game 25-10, staved off an Anderson rally that saw the Lady Bearcats pull even at 15, but Oldham County's Kelly Moyer recorded consecutive kills that seemed to deflate the Lady Cats.
