  • Singing their way to the top

    Never mind that some of the songs were reworked and parodied in feature films several years before group members could even cry, let alone croon.

  • COLUMN: 'I am glad he's my coach'

    Jacob Russell has been in Anderson County's starting lineup almost his entire four years as a Bearcat, so he knows that his coach, Glen Drury, is quick to deflect accolades heading his way.

    Such was the case Friday night after the Bearcats had dispatched of Woodford County. To those of us who follow statistics and records, it was the 400th time that Drury had emerged victorious as a high school basketball coach. To others, it was his 14th win in 18 games this season.

    To Drury, it was simply a reflection of those who have been around him the last 24 years.
