  • Dog nearly gone after falling through ice on Beaver Lake

    No one is more excited about county firefighters completing ice rescue training last Friday than Biscuit.

    Well, the Tennessee Mountain Curr’s owners, Rosemary and Kenny Bowling, are pretty excited, too.

    See, Biscuit was rescued by three members of the Anderson County Fire Department after falling through the ice at Beaver Lake on Sunday — a mere two days after the latest ice rescue training session.

    The Bowlings live in the city, but own property near Beaver Lake. Kenny Bowling took the dog to that property on Sunday to get some exercise.

  • ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Lady Bearcats, South Oldham favorites in wide-open field

    It is far too early to be making definitive reservations for a trip to Bowling Green next Wednesday, but it would not be a bad idea to keep the dates open, either.

    That is the case if you are a fan of Anderson County girls' basketball.

    Or South Oldham. Or Simon Kenton. Or Walton-Verona. Or Shelby County. Or Owen County. Or, for that matter, the two lowest rated teams in the Eighth Region Tournament, Carroll County and Oldham County.

  • Shelby boys defeat Bearcats for district title.

    UPDATED, Monday, March 1.

    SHELBYVILLE -- Shelby County jumped to a 12-0 lead, but needed an 11-0 spurt in the fourth quarter to seal the boys' 30th District championship, 59-46,  over visiting Anderson County Friday night.

    Anderson, which was going for its second consecutive district crown and third in four years, weathered Shelby's early barrage and actually took a brief lead midway through the second quarter, but had no answer for Shelby's athleticism, which created a 7-0 run in the third quarter to take control of the game.
