  • SOFTBALL: Not rivalry-like as Lady Cats pound Shelby

    The 35-degree temperatures were not softball-like, but Anderson County's 12-2 rout of Shelby County last Wednesday was not rivalry-like either.

    The Lady Bearcats pounded 11 hits and took advantage of seven Shelby errors and a host of other Lady Rocket mistakes to post the most one-sided win in the series since Anderson won 15-0 to open the 2003 season.

  • BASEBALL: Eight-run third -- on one hit -- pushes Bearcats past Eminence

    It makes no difference who the opponent is, when a team is 0-5, any win is sweet.

    Anderson County baseball knew that after beating district foe Eminence 12-1 last Tuesday night.

    Granted, Eminence is rarely a threat to the Bearcats. The tiny school is one of the state's smallest and is the program that was on the wrong end of a 58-0 drubbing from the Bearcats three years ago. Last Tuesday's encounter was the sixth straight time the Bearcats had invoked the “mercy rule” with at least a 10-run lead after five innings.

  • No doubt about it: The Bible is a story about God

    Parents know that children who are raised in church give the same answer when asked virtually any question about the Bible: God.
    Although this predictable answer is sometimes humorous, the answer is given for good reason. Children learn early on that God is the right answer to so many questions. Who made the world? God. Who made the trees? God. Who made the sun? God. Who made the stars? God. Who made you? God!
