    May is a special time for anglers who chase redear sunfish and bluegill as they move into the shallows to spawn.

    An extended stretch of stable weather and seasonably warm temperatures in late April created optimal spring fishing conditions for anglers across Kentucky.

    The calm broke at the end of the month when rounds of storms over a period of days preceded a cold front. In their wake, rivers and streams that had been running low and clear and warmer than normal rose and cooled off a bit.

  • Learn to hook and cook your own...

    From staff reports

    People in search of their own locally-sourced, organic fish need to look no further than the nearest lake or river.

    For those foodies who are lost when it comes to catching their own meals, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources offers a special Hook and Cook program from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 28 at Jacobson Park Lake in Lexington.

  • ON TARGET WITH HIS COMEBACK

    Checking the results of Noah Kidwell’s efforts, it is quickly apparent this is no typical eighth-grader handling a bow and arrow.

    On the target set up in his family’s driveway, nearly every arrow is in or near the bullseye.

    A few feet over, stands a 3D deer figure where several arrows are stuck near where the heart would be located.

    “He normally averages around 280,” says Noah’s father, Chris Kidwell.

  • Anderson boys soccer to host...

    The Anderson County High School boys’ soccer team will be hosting an Alumni Game on Saturday, June 4 at the high school pitch. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

    The game format will be “The Old Guys” taking on “The Young Guys.”

  • Lady Cats no lock to repeat,...

    Before I got in my car to leave Owensboro’s Jack Fisher Park last June, the notion that Anderson County would be back was already embedded in my mind and the minds of nearly every Lady Bearcat fan that made the trip west.

  • Bearcats still playing for May

    All season long, Anderson County baseball coach L.W. Barnes has been saying his team is “playing for May.”

    It means that Barnes felt his team, faced with a major rebuilding job against a rugged schedule could improve enough to be a factor in the 30th District and perhaps the Eighth Region by tournament time, which begins May 23.

    If last week is any indication, the Bearcats, despite a 3-18 record, might be living up to that plan.

  • Duncan 3-peats as CKC champ

    Anderson County High School hurdler Connor Duncan took the championship of the boys’ 300-meter hurdles in the Central Kentucky Conference meet Friday in Harrodsburg.

    Duncan turned in a 40.59 time to outlast Mercer County’s Dustin Baker by .18 second. The title was Duncan’s third consecutive CKC championship.

    Duncan was Anderson County’s only event champion. He just missed another title in the 110-meter hurdles, turning in a 15.80, just .01 second behind Mercer’s Aaron Johnson.
