  • Anderson opens at Lafayette

    Anderson County is not the only girls’ basketball team around that should be good even while going through a transition phase.

    Lafayette, which provides the opposition for the Lady Bearcats’ regular-season opener, has gone from a team of giants to one much more like Anderson County. A year ago, the Lady Generals had several girls standing over 6-feet tall. This year, longtime coach Allison Denton is expecting no player taller than 5-11.

  • Need answers for that leftover turkey? Here they are

    Other than finding a mall parking space on Black Friday, perhaps the second most pressing issue most Americans will have the day after Thanksgiving is what to do with all that leftover turkey.

    Everyone has fallback positions, including turkey sandwiches slathered with mayo and turkey salad. The uncouth will even grab a chunk out of the fridge, douse it with salt and slam it down.

  • Foreclosures marching on

    Those sucked into the sub-prime mortgage fiasco are systematically being spit back out as the Anderson County’s torrid foreclosure pace closes in on 100 for the year.

    Through November there have been 94 foreclosures in Anderson County, and at least six more are scheduled for December, according to Lawrenceburg attorney Bill Patrick, who presides as master commissioner over foreclosure sales.

    Patrick said there were five foreclosures scheduled for last Friday, but three were temporarily postponed.

  • What happened?

    One indication that Anderson County football is headed in the right direction kept popping up over the last half of the 2008 football season.

    “What happened?”

    A team with lofty goals in the pre-season, Anderson’s dream of playing for a state championship ended in some bone-chilling temperatures Friday. The Bearcats were ousted from the state playoffs by a team that might have flown a bit under the radar for most of the year, but  boasted some ridiculously gifted athletes.

  • Food fight

    Pizza parlors in Lawrenceburg are about as numerous as toppings used to load up the Italian pie.

    Name a national chain and chances are, it’ll be found within the city’s 3.7 square miles — and don’t forget the home slices, too. Lawrenceburg has at least two locally owned pizza makers.

    And they just keep popping out of the oven.

  • Charitable act lands couple in foreclosure

    If you want the cold hard facts about what will soon be 100 foreclosures in Anderson County this year, go back to page A1 and read all about it.

    Stay here and you will read about two of the faces behind one of those foreclosures, and how their charitable act last Christmas Day placed their home on the foreclosure list, ruined their credit and has wreaked havoc on their lives.

  • Doss holds off Anderson rally, ends Bearcat season

    Doss built a big lead then held off an Anderson County rally to post a 49-41 victory in Class 5A football playoff action Friday in Louisville.

    The loss ended Anderson's season at 7-5. Doss moves on to play John Hardin in the Region Two finals on Friday, Nov. 28.

    "I was very proud of our effort," said Anderson coach Mark Peach. "I thought we played as hard as we had all year.

  • Anderson’s Williams named as honorable mention all-state

    Anderson County High School boys’ soccer player Sam Williams has been named an honorable mention selection on the Kentucky Boys’ Soccer Coaches’ Association all-state team.

    A senior, Williams led the Bearcats to a 12-5-4 record and an appearance in the Region 13 tournament. Williams scored 21 goals and had seven assists.

    Saturday, Williams played in the state all-star game at John Hardin High School, near Elizabethtown. Williams scored two of the East team’s four goals and had an assist in the game.

  • Cats prove they are still a force

    It had been billed as the first round of the state playoffs, but for Anderson County, it was more of a proving ground.

    Taking advantage of a rare mismatch for a second-seeded team, the Bearcats routed Louisville Iroquois 47-13 Friday night at Warford Stadium. The box score will show that Jacob Russell and Grant Cox teamed up for four touchdown passes and that Russell threw for 202 yards, 145 of them to Cox. It will also show that the Bearcats outgained Iroquois 371 yards to 226, with over half of the Raiders’ output coming on four plays.

  • Phone calls? No. Mail? Yes

    I don’t like telemarketing. Never have, never will. Telemarketers who call and try to convince me to purchase their goods or services are wasting their time.

    So are those who call and urge me to contribute to the local firemen’s or policemen’s organization, or to save the children, or for cancer, AIDS or Alzheimer’s disease research or for any of the other causes that need money.
