  • Radio glitch spoils first Bearcat broadcast

    The first radio broadcast of Anderson County basketball on the Pegasus Sports Network experienced a glitch Saturday night that kept some listeners from hearing the Bearcats' game with Shelby County. An unexpected technical problem kept the broadcast crew of Larry Basham and Cory Quisenberry off the air until late in the first half.

    The broadcast has been archived at www.pegasussportsky.com.

  • Russell, Cox named to All-State team

    For the last two seasons, Anderson County's Jacob Russell and Grant Cox have been one of the most feared passing duos in Kentucky.

    Sunday, the state's coaches rewarded the tandem with places on the prestigious Courier-Journal All-State team. Russell, considered by many to be the state's top quarterback prospect, was named to the second team while Cox was placed on the third team as a wide receiver.

    Russell, who had already been named the Class 5A statewide Player of the Year, learned of the selection from a phone conversation with his grandfather, Wendell Bruce.

  • Lady Cats scramble for late Christmas win

    SHELBYVILLE – It took nearly three quarters, but Anderson County finally got in the Christmas spirit last Wednesday.

    Make that the last-minute-frantically-looking-for-something Christmas spirit.

    For the Lady Bearcats, it came in the form of a full-court press unleashed in the final minutes of the third quarter that turned a close game into a 44-32 win over regional foe Owen County in girls' basketball action.

    Anderson improved to 6-1 on the year and ended up placing fifth in the Max Performance Lady Rocket Invitational at Shelby County.

  • COLUMN: A look back at the decade's biggest local sports stories

    Seems like just a short time ago that everyone seemed to be wondering about computers crashing, planes dropping out of the sky and an Armageddon created by Y2K.

    Turned out to be nothing.

    But it's 10 years later and there are still predictions about the end of the world – see Dec. 21, 2012 for details. Maybe this one is brought on by UK2K for all we know. Maybe the wrong person did the John Wall Dancc or gave someone a Boogie Noogie.

  • Bearcat radio to debut Saturday

    Can't make it to some Anderson County basketball games? If you have a computer with an internet connection, you can listen to the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats beginning with Saturday's boys' game at Shelby County.

    Pegasus Sports Network plans to broadcast 10 Bearcat and 10 Lady Bearcat games the rest of the current season, then carry all of the 30th District and Eighth Region tournament games. A longtime hobby of Mike Montgomery, of Crestwood, Pegasus has been the voice of Oldham County sports for years.

    Rue, Richardson wrong about Fox News

    To the editor:

    I’m glad to see in his letter to the editor last week that Mr. Rue has joined our ongoing discussion as to the validity of Fox News and the likes of Glenn Beck.

    Unfortunately I was traveling and unable to respond to Mrs. Richardson’s second group of unsupportable facts and Fox opinion points.
