  • COLUMN: A lack of class goes nowhere

    I have to admit, I did not watch the VMAs on MTV Sunday night. I was among the millions of Americans tuning in to Sunday Night Football on NBC.

    However, more than I’ve heard about Brian Urlacher’s season-ending wrist injury and Jay Cutler’s four interceptions, I’ve been hearing about Kanye West’s outburst in the middle of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech during Sunday night’s award show.

    If you’re a fan of pop music, country music or have a child under the age of 25, chances are you know who Taylor Swift is.

  • Bearcats dismantle previously unbeaten Henry Co.

    Describing Anderson County's 42-7 rout of Henry County on Friday night as impressive would be inadequate.

    The Bearcats ruined the previously unbeaten Wildcats' homecoming with a dominating performance no one outside the Anderson locker room could have envisioned.

    The Bearcats piled up 511 yards of offense and limited Henry to 188. The Bearcats put 42 points up on a team that had been giving up just six a game, good enough for second in the state.

    The Mustangs scored on a 20-yard pass from Zach Carmichael to Houston Page, then Carmichael found Ross Cox for the two-point conversion. The Mustangs tacked on another score when Nathan Cox picked up a blocked field goal attempt and ran it 80 yards for a touchdown.

  • COLUMN: Gather seeds now for next year’s garden

    Another season has come and gone. Seems like only yesterday we were savoring that first ear of corn, ripe tomato and squash casserole.

    I was usually up and picking at 6 a.m. Now the sun isn’t even up until after 7. The planet has moved on to the next season and so must we.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: District's top seed on line as Bearcat soccer readies for powerful Woodford

    The Anderson County boys' soccer team will take the field in the biggest match of the season Thursday night when the Bearcats host third-ranked Woodford County. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    Woodford possesses one of the most powerful teams in Kentucky, having scored 56 goals and giving up seven in the latest statistics provided by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. The Yellow Jackets' 11-1-1 record has been blemished only by a 2-1 shootout loss to West Jessamine in the Colts' tournament and a scoreless tie with East Jessamine.
