    The first time I fished a stream out of a kayak, you may have heard the oaths I swore in Tennessee. It was a short, cockpit or sit-in style kayak. I had a hard time controlling its tippy tendencies.

    After an hour or so, my back began to hurt trying to keep the boat in position to properly fish. I had little room to stow my rod and tackle. I eventually bought a personal pontoon boat for my stream fishing, forsaking a kayak because of this bad experience.

    A recent stable weather pattern brought an early taste of summer to Kentucky as high temperatures topped 80-degrees on consecutive days.

    Warmer weather and water temperatures climbing into the 70s tell catfish that it’s time to spawn, and anglers who pursue them know from experience the period from late spring into early summer is prime time.

  • Polson living big dream, ‘crazy...

    Dreaming big dreams.

    That simple, yet gigantic step is usually the first step to success in any endeavor.

    For countless boys growing up in Kentucky, playing basketball in the recreation leagues, middle schools and high schools that dream starts with eventually wearing a blue and white uniform and running onto the floor at Rupp Arena. 

    Somewhere along the way, the cruel realization hits that the dream is bigger than one’s basketball ability.

    Jarrod Polson was no different.

    In many ways, that is.

  • Cann leaves Cincinnati program

    Former Anderson County High School girls’ basketball star Makenzie Cann has left the University of Cincinnati program.

    Cann confirmed her decision in a Twitter message to The Anderson News on Saturday.

    Cann saw action in all 31 games for Cincinnati last season, starting once. She averaged 7 points a game.

    She had a season-best 23 points against Central Florida in the AAC Tournament. The next game, eventual national champion UConn ended Cincy’s season. The Bearcats finished at 8-23.


    DANVILLE – With 100 yards to go, it was obvious the only hurdle keeping him from a conference championship was simply missing a hurdle.

    Duncan cleared the remaining barriers in his romp to the Central Kentucky Conference title in the 300-meter hurdles. The Anderson County junior finished more than two seconds ahead of second-place finisher Chapman Bean of Boyle County, who was running on his home track.
