  • Woman slashed with steak knife

    The Lawrenceburg Police Department arrested a man Sunday on assault and domestic violence charges.

    Buddy Evans, of 201 1/2 Saffell Street, was taken into custody after his wife of 14 years, Jaqueline Evans, stated that on April 18 he took a steak knife and caused multiple injuries to her neck and arms, according to a complaint warrant issued by the Anderson District Court.

    He then allegedly told her that he was going to cut her throat, took her cell phone so that she could not call for help, and accused her of cheating on him.

  • Man jailed for choking woman

    A Lawrenceburg man remains behind bars after allegedly choking a woman until the blood vessels in her eyes burst, according to a citation issued by the Lawrenceburg Police Department.

    Brock O’Neil Thompson, 22, of 424 Secretariat Drive, allegedly broke into the woman’s home and waited for her to return while hiding in a basement closet, according to an arrest warrant requested May 8 by officer Nathan Doty.

  • Bearcats giddy over new grass

    I don’t think I have ever seen anyone so giddy over getting some grass sprigs as Mark Peach was last Monday night.

    But then, I haven’t seen many football fields in worse shape than the one at Anderson County High School in recent years. And Peach, the Bearcat football coach was understandably excited when the Anderson County School Board approved a bid of just over $12,000 to renovate Bob Ware Field. The Bearcats should have a Bermuda grass field ready for their home opener against Mercer County on Sept. 1.

  • OLD-TIME PLAYER, BIG-TIME WINNER

    It would be easy to assume John Paul Garmon was born several generations too late.

    Just think about what his high school coaches say about him. You might agree that the Anderson County High School senior is from a different generation, and they see it as the ultimate compliment.

    “Oh, John Paul is all about winning,” says Anderson basketball coach Glen Drury. “It doesn’t make any difference what sport it is, all he cares about is the team winning.”

  • Thompson tops national meet

    Anderson County Middle School student Henry Thompson was best in the nation twice over the weekend as he took first place in both the bulls-eye and 3D-IBO competition at the National Archery in the Schools Program national tournament, held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

    Over 15,000 archers from around the nation competed in the event. The Anderson County Middle School team placed 44th out of 243 middle school teams in the bullseye competition and ninth out of 89 teams in the 3D-IBO division.

  • District tourneys start Monday

    The 30th District baseball and softball tournaments begin Monday, May 22 at Anderson County High School.

    The Anderson County teams are the top seeds in both tournaments. The higher-seeded teams are designated the home team.

    The baseball tournament gets underway Monday with the Bearcats playing fourth-seeded Spencer County at 5:30 p.m. Second-seeded Collins takes on No. 3 Shelby County at approximately 8 p.m. The championship game is set for Wednesday, May 24 at 6 p.m.

  • Bearcats romp past Mercer

    The Anderson County High School baseball team got a strong win Wednesday night when the Bearcats rolled to an 11-4 win over Mercer County at Barnes Memorial Field.

    It was the kind of performance the Bearcats were seeking as they hit the final week before district tournament play begins. Anderson starter Luke Dowell got the win, going 6.1 innings and giving up only four hits. He overcame a porous Anderson defense that committed six errors.

  • Anderson impressive in Boyle classic

    Anderson County is more than capable of making its fourth consecutive trip the state softball tournament.

    That was the statement the Lady Bearcats made in impressive run through the Tyler Missbach Memorial Showcase, hosted by Boyle County over the weekend.

    The Lady Bearcats won all three of their games and scored 36 runs in the process. The Lady Bearcats defeated Madison Southern, Boyd County and Louisville Eastern for three wins. The showcase was individual games, not a tournament.

  • Collins dampens Lady Bearcat Senior Night

    While Collins’ 3-0 win over Anderson County last Tuesday might have been a bit of a softball upset, it would also be true that it wasn’t totally unexpected.

    Anderson had routed Collins, 10-6, three weeks before in a game that might not have been that close. In addition, the Lady Bearcats were celebrating Senior Night and seemed to have things other than the diamond on their minds.

  • High school archers compete in national tournament

    The Anderson County High School archery team placed 23rd out of 248 teams in the bullseye division of the National Archery in the Schools Program national tournament at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    Senior Noah Platt led the Bearcats with a 291 score of a possible 300 while junior Anna Rose led the girls with a 289. Platt placed 59th out of 2,418 male archers and Rose was 49th out of 2,150 archers. Isaiah Caldwell and Wade Wilson followed with 288 and 287 respectively.
