  • GO BEARCATS: SWEET!

    NEW CASTLE – There was never any doubt in C.J. Penny's mind.

    “I was going to take the shot and I was going to hit it,” Penny said after hitting a 3-pointer as time expired to send Anderson County past Shelby County, 52-49, for the Eighth Region championship Tuesday night.

    Anderson advances to the Sweet 16 for just the fourth time in school history and the first time since 1997.

  • Simon Kenton lives up to its billing

    CRESTWOOD – Yes, Simon Kenton is that good.

    At least the Pioneers were Saturday night, dominating Anderson County, 67-40, for their second straight Eighth Region championship. It was also the second consecutive season that they defeated the Lady Bearcats in the final step to the Sweet 16.

    But if the 2008 final, a 48-44 Simon Kenton win, was not decided until the final 70 seconds, the 2009 edition was practically over in the first 70.

  • Police: Woman tried to torch house with grandmother still inside

    A Lawrenceburg woman who police say set her house on fire with her bedridden grandmother still inside Sunday night has been charged with first-degree arson.

    Investigators say they still don’t know why Cheryl Brogan, 41, of 309 Center St., started the fire, the first in a series of bizarre events that resulted in her arrest Monday near Little Rock, Ark.

  • Lady Bearcats leave nothing to chance

    CRESTWOOD – There was no way Anderson County was going to be an early March victim Monday night.

    Even though the Lady Bearcats were pitted against a nice little Carroll County team that some thought might be an Eighth Region tournament spoiler, there was no way that Anderson was going to be the victim of a shocking upset at South Oldham High School.
