    The headwaters of Green River above Green River Lake imprinted historical greatness on the descendants of the earliest settlers of the area.

    Capt. Abraham Lincoln obtained the first recorded land grant in what is now Casey County with 800 acres along the Green River. His 8-year-old son, Thomas, narrowly escaped death during an Indian ambush that killed Capt. Lincoln in 1786. Without Thomas, we would never hear of his son Abraham Lincoln.

    With summer activities in full swing, Kentucky’s lakes and rivers are teeming with boaters enjoying the water.

    Officials with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources want it to be a fun and safe experience for everyone.

  • Bearcat hoops completes summer...

    Basketball season is nearly five months – and a lot of cooler temperatures – away, but that does not mean hoopsters can lounge and do nothing.

    The Anderson County High School boys' basketball team completed its summer schedule last week, offering some mixed results but hope for a big year in 2014-15. The Bearcats were only 3-3 in full games, which were played at Asbury University's team camp, but Bearcat assistant coach Bryan Hyatt says that is misleading.

  • Anderson County athletes blazing...

    Anderson County track athletes Alorra Sims and Carley Duncan have moved into national qualifying rounds for the AAU Junior Olympics. The qualifying round is scheduled to be held this weekend in Murfreesboro, Tennessee with the national finals set for the end of July in Des Moines, Iowa.

    Both had outstanding days at the AAU state meet, held in Elizabethtown on June 21.

  • Lacrosse team celebrates season

    The Anderson County boys’ lacrosse team finished the 2014 season with a 5-12 record, but coach Chris Harrod termed the year a success.

    “Every category in the stats book showed a major increase in numbers,” Harrod said.

    Senior Dillon Harrod led the state with 73 points (52 goals and 21 assists), at least 10 points better than anyone else in Kentucky.

    Harrod was selected as a first team all-state midfielder and second team all-state as an attacker.

  • Davis-Smith duo should make...

    Notes to be blown up by  a firecracker …

    Other than watching some local, ahem, experts discuss the NBA draft on Twitter last week, the most interesting tidbit came when Russ Smith was taken by the Philadelphia 76ers, then shipped to the New Orleans Pelicans quicker then John Hancock could have signed the Declaration of Independence.

    For much of his college career, I doubted Smith.

    He was too small. Too streaky.

    He always answered the critics with too many ways to win. The guy can play.
