  • Shelby rolls past error-prone Bearcats

    SHELBYVILLE -- Shelby County took advantage of six Anderson County errors and made Bearcat pitching pay for seven walks and four hit batsmen in posting a 16-6 win in district baseball action Friday night.

  • Bearcats to battle for district supremacy

    Note: The Anderson News was informed Thursday morning of a time change in the Anderson County vs. Shelby County baseball game on Friday. First pitch is now set for 5:30 p.m. at Shelby County.

    For years, Shelby County dominated Eighth Region baseball so it is a good bet that the Rockets are not about to let Anderson County keep its claim as the regional king without a fight.

    The teams square off Friday night, April 30, at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. First pitch is set for 5:30 p.m.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Phillps' first major decision a tough one

    I would not want to be in Joker Phillips' shoes right now.

    His first major decision, as far as most fans are concerned, could be one that defines his first season as head football coach of the Kentucky Wildcats.

    But, in reality, another area could be the major factor in determining the success of Kentucky football in 2010.

    Unless you have been exiled to the outer reaches of the Yukon, you know what that first major decision is: Who will be the quarterback under center when the Wildcats open the season at Louisville on Sept. 4?

  • COLUMN: Politicking food for thought

    Anderson County’s political candidates campaigned hard this past weekend.

    Well, at least that’s what I can assume from the pile of campaign literature I found blocking the entrance to my home on Sunday night.

    So maybe “blocking the entrance” is a bit overkill, but I had a lot to pick up before I could unlock the door and go inside.

    I was out of town this weekend, so I wasn’t home to answer the multiple knocks on my door, although I’m sure my dog tried her best from the back yard to tell the candidates I wasn’t there.

  • Track team has night to remember

    Ryan Ratliff is doing just fine for a rookie. Fact is, he's doing as good as anyone, rookie or veteran, in the high jump this year.

    The Anderson County High School junior cleared 6-feet-7 in the Carl Deaton Invitational at Green County on Friday. In his first year of track, Ratliff turned in the state's best jump this season.

    “He was running high on adrenaline because his relay team had just run the 4x200-meter relay to a new (school) record,” said Anderson coach Robert Meacham.
