  • Lady Bearcats ready to open...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ basketball team opens the 2016-17 season next Tuesday, Nov. 29, when the Lady Bearcats travel to Thomas Nelson.

    Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.

    Anderson, which went 22-10 a year ago and won the 30th District Tournament for the seventh time in the last eight years, has some question marks going into the season. First on the Lady Bearcats’ mind is how to replace last season’s Eighth Region Player of the Year, Kaci Currens, now at Georgetown College.

  • Cann rips nets for 20 as...

    Anderson County High School graduate Makenzie Cann scored a game-high 20 points to lead No. 19 Kentucky to 92-43 rout of New Hampshire last Thursday in Memorial Coliseum.

    Cann buried 6-of-8 threes for her best night in her short career as a Wildcat.

    Cann, who sat out last season after playing a year at the University of Cincinnati, had scored 23 points for Cincy against Central Florida. She also hit 6 three-pointers in that game.

    Cann score 5 points Saturday but e Wildcats took their first loss of the season, 79-69, at Colorado.

  • Peach honored by district coaches

    Anderson County High School football coach Mark Peach has been named the Class 5A, District 6 Coach of the Year by the Kentucky Football Coaches Association.

    Peach, who just completed his 12th season at the helm of the Bearcats, led a young Anderson team to a 4-7 record. Despite numerous injuries to key players, the Bearcats were in contention for a title but fell just short against Madison Southern in the district championship game.

    Anderson saw its season end with an overtime loss to Bullitt Central in the state playoffs.

  • McKee returns to Morehead lineup...

    Eriel McKee’s time away from the basketball court was short.

    The Anderson County High School graduate was back in the lineup for Morehead State earlier than expected, scoring 12 points in 10 minutes of action in the Eagles’ 92-42 win over NAIA team Alice Lloyd last Tuesday.

    McKee also grabbed 8 rebounds in her first action after suffering a shoulder injury in Morehead’s season opening loss to Georgia State on Nov. 11.

  • Former Anderson player on...

    The Heisman Trust will anounce the five finalists on Dec. 5 and the winner will be announced in New York City on Dec. 10, the release said.

  • ‘Deplorable’ comment fueled...

    Caution: You might find the next few hundred words deplorable.

    Not that I am trying to get one last needle at Hillary Clinton after the election. We got in enough of those to go around from the end of the Democratic National Convention up through Tuesday when Donald Trump did what few believed possible.

  • Schoolhouse lives to fight...

    The old Glensboro school rotting in the high school’s front yard was given a stay of execution when the Anderson County Board of Education opted to continue looking for a buyer rather than having it torn down.

    Superintendent Sheila Mitchell told board members at their meeting Monday night that despite extending the bidding process for 60 days to find a possible buyer, no one had submitted a bid.

    “The deadline was Friday at noon,” said Mitchell, who has been working for the past year to find a buyer for the aging but historic structure.

  • BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW:...

    John Paul Garmon is healthy again.

    That news alone is enough to make Anderson County basketball fans happy as the Bearcats open the season on Dec. 2.

    A year ago, the sight of Garmon clutching his right shoulder and signaling to Coach Glen Drury that he needed to come out of the game was one Bearcat fans witnessed more than they wanted.

    “It was bad,” Garmon says. “Sometimes on a scale of 1-10, it was about a 9.”
