  • No surprise at Bearcats' start

    This time, the answer seemed to surprise the questioner.

    As we concluded an interview in the locker room at Lexington’s Sayre High School, Glen Drury turned the tables on the only local media member around.

    “Does it surprise you that we are .500 right now?” Drury asked.
    “Nope,” I replied. “Not at all.”

    Drury has won over 400 games and has seen a ton of the unexpected on the basketball court, but he seemed genuinely surprised that one who has seen probably more games he has coached, outside of his family and trusted friends Jimmy Young and Wayne Wilder, would make that statement.

  • To a football fan, Anderson's band is tops

    If there is a better high school band at football games than Anderson County's has been the last few years, I would like to see it.

  • COLUMN: Waggener’s last visit was special

    Eleven years really isn’t that long. It was in 1999 that The Nanny was heading off into the sunset, Toy Story 2 was a hit movie and Bill Clinton was getting ready for his last year in office.
    The Cincinnati Reds were good, but Dusty Baker was managing San Francisco to an 86-76 record.
    And Anderson County was buzzing about the start of the football season against Louisville Waggener.
    As in Big, Bad Waggener, the state powerhouse.
    Obviously, in sports, 11 years is longer than eternity.

  • COLUMN: Heads up!

    The coin came up heads and that was all Anderson County needed.
