  • Robinson is state runnerup in pole vault

    LOUISVILLE – B.J. Robinson was so close.

    The Anderson County senior could not clear 14 feet, finishing second to Henderson County's Evan Pitt in the pole vault at the state high school track meet at Cardinal Park on the campus of the University of Louisville.

    Robinson and Pitt staged a monumental battle, but Pitt prevailed when he easily cleared 14. Robinson could not match that.

    “I couldn't get loose,” said Robinson, who just had knee surgery in February.

  • Portion of Gilbert's Creek Road closed

    Anderson County Judge-Executive Steve Cornish ordered a portion of Gilbert's Creek Road closed Friday afternoon after it was determined the road was no longer safe.

    Cornish closed a section of the road near the river, right next to a spot that collapsed last year.

    "It's right near there, on the curve," he said.

    Cornish said he signed an executive emergency order Friday afternoon.

  • Not your average Joe

    Most Joes relish the moment they no longer have to risk life and limb protecting and serving the public as police officers.

    Heck, most Joes would never voluntarily risk life and limb in the first place.

    But Joe Milam is certainly not your average Joe.

    Sworn in last Thursday morning as the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department’s chief deputy, Milam spent the past two decades putting his life on the line with the Kentucky State Police before retiring last August.

  • SPORTS BUZZ for May 24: Lady Cats can still defend crown but have tough road

    Up until last Tuesday, it looked like the Eighth Region softball race was just for second place. Anderson County had won 20 of 21 games, was beating good teams and demolishing decent teams. Not only were the Lady Bearcats ranked, they climbed to the program's highest-ever ranking. They are still there, in fact, coming in a No. 7 in the final regular season coaches' poll. They were the only regional team to be in the Top 25 most of the year.

  • THE SPORTS BUZZ FOR MAY 23: Regional baseball tournament preview: Anderson the favorite but dangerous opponent looms

    If Anderson is able to win three games this week, the Bearcats will accomplish something no team, in any single-class sport, has ever done in the 60-year history of the school. No team has ever repeated as regional champion.
