  • COLUMN: Reading the papers was a motivation for Bearcats Friday night

    You have to love it when a football player – or any athlete, for that matter, says, “I never read the papers.”

    It's always been puzzling to me how those guys who don't read what's in print always seem to know what is printed about them, but we'll leave that for another column.

    But Anderson County football is another story. The Bearcats read the papers – this one I hope – and know what is being said about them. Take last Friday's game at Bullitt Central.

  • COLUMN: Rules of thumb help predict the 'nowcast'

    I don’t know about you guys, but I washed all my sweatshirts last week. Now that October is here, we can expect a whole year of weather. One day it’s summer, the next fall, then winter and summer. That’s just one week.

    Fall is just as fickle as spring. Since the weather seems to affect our lives daily, I thought a little knowledge might be helpful.

  • COLUMN: Attitude makes a difference

    An open letter to the University of Kentucky football team:

    The No. 1 team in the nation came into your house and left with a win after putting up 41 points to your 7.

    Another top 5 team came into your house and handed you a loss, 38 to 20.

    Obviously, neither of these endings is quite what you (or your fans) hoped for — but heads up, boys. It’s only as bad as you make it.

  • Former Anderson coach, pastor inducted into Louisville Hall of Fame

    LOUISVILLE – It would be hard to imagine a Kentucky fan being inducted into the University of Louisville Athletic Hall of Fame.

    But Saturday night, Tommy Barnes was standing near mid-field ot Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, along with football greats Ted Washington and Roman Oben, being introduced to the Louisville homecoming crowd as one of the Class of 2009.

    Not bad for a guy who admits to being a Wildcat basketball fan growing up.

  • Lady Bearcats advance to region

    EMINENCE – Everything had come down to one game. After thousands of serves and volleys, only 25 points stood between the end of the volleyball season and moving on.

    Anderson County answered Monday night.

  • COLUMN: Closing Main Street not the best option

    Alienating people by blocking off Main Street to those not willing to purchase a $35 ticket to taste wine and bourbon is probably not the best way to preserve the city’s downtown.

    That’s what happened last Friday when The Society for the Historic Preservation of the City of Lawrenceburg Inc. held a fundraiser and the mayor’s office approved closing Main Street to accommodate the event.

  • From bundle of worry to bundle of joy

    Emy and Brandon Womack didn’t expect any complications when their second son, Brady, was born.

    Brady was born at 40 weeks and nothing throughout Emy’s pregnancy had led the family to believe there were any foreseeable problems.

    But the Womack family was hit with the unexpected.

    Brady was born with meconium aspiration, meaning he had inhaled meconium during birth and it was blocking his airways.

  • Charge dropped, dozen remain against ex-youth pastor

    One of 13 charges against the ex-youth pastor accused of rape and sodomy was dismissed on Tuesday, and another is in review.

    Gordon Lunceford, 47, appeared in Anderson County Circuit Court on Tuesday for a status hearing.

    Lunceford, who was a youth minister at First Baptist Church in 1992 when the alleged abuse occurred, was originally charged with six counts of third-degree rape, five counts of third-degree sodomy, one count of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of second-degree sexual abuse.

  • Gillispie headed to trial, maybe

    With what amounts to a sentencing offer still on the table from the county attorney, Billy Gillispie’s attorney inched the former UK basketball coach closer to a trial when he appeared Monday morning in Anderson District Court.

    County Attorney Bobbi Jo Lewis and Gillispie’s attorney Bill Patrick agreed on a second pretrial conference date for Nov. 2 at 10:30 a.m., and for a trial to be held Feb. 10-11 in District Court.
