  • Mr. Russell's neighborhood

    NEW CASTLE -- On the stat sheet, it was almost an after-thought.

    Trailing 28-7 midway through the third quarter, Henry County was threatening to make a game of it again, having driven from its own nine yard line to the Anderson County six. A Henry receiver, who shall remain unnamed, took a short pass then turned up field.

    The stat sheet simply recorded a tackle by Jacob Russell.

    Reality recorded, “BOOM!” And a whole lot of “Ohhhh!” from the crowd.

    Welcome to the Mr. Russell’s Neighborhood.

  • COLUMN: President’s speech was inspiring, not controversial

    President Obama made history yet again, but this time he inspired a nation of children. Elementary students did not get to view it but almost all the middle school and two high school classes watched it.

    I was in one of those two high school classes when it was on.

    Obama’s speech wasn’t full of politics like some people thought. Instead it turned out to be pretty inspiring.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Lady Cat volleyball falls to regional foes

    The Anderson County volleyball team saw any chance at getting the top seed in the 28th District tournament go by the wayside, then absorbed a defeat from the defending regional champion in last week's action.

Anderson almost seemed to be two different teams as the Lady Bearcats rolled to a 25-16 win in the first game, then saw Shelby come back with 25-13 and 25-14 wins.
