  • Inspired by Challengers

    There are times in life when you are truly challenged by something you see.

    Bill Lewis was one of those people and because of a simple gesture, Anderson County kids who have physical difficulties will benefit for many years.

    Mr. Lewis passed away two weeks ago. He was not an Anderson County native. He never worked in Anderson County nor did he ever live here. Yet, he was greatly touched when he visited one day about two years ago.

  • Beaver Lake to be lowered in fall

    The Fisheries Division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources plans to lower Anderson County’s Beaver Lake in late fall, according to a news release. The action is part of an effort to improve panfish and largemouth bass fishing in the 158-acre lake.

    Kentucky Fish and Wildlife will hold a meeting to outline the project and take questions from the public at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 26. The meeting will be held at the Anderson County Cooperative Extension office at 1026 County Park Road.

  • Bearcat soccer routs Henry County

    The Anderson County High School boys’ soccer team got back on the winning track Thursday night with a 6-0 win over Eighth Region foe Henry County.

    Five days after taking its first loss of the season, Anderson dominated Henry from the outset as Shane Quire scored three goals and had two assists to lead the Bearcats. Ben Seibold found the net twice and also had two assists while Trenton Watson took a pass from Logan McChesney for a score.

  • Lady Cats pounce on, devour...

    Anderson County had its first district win of the season settled quickly last Wednesday night.

    The Lady Bearcats scored three times in the first 14 minutes on their way to a 7-1 rout of visiting 30th District foe Spencer County.

  • Net Cats serve coach’s first win

    Any win is a time to be happy, but when the Anderson County High School volleyball team romped past Owen County last Tuesday night, it was a time for even bigger smiles.

    Not only did the Lady Bearcats get their first win of the season, doing so on their home court, but new coach Ryan Brown claimed his first match victory as a head coach.

    “This was the first home game and in front of the home crowd,” Brown said. “We beat a regional team and this is something to build on.”

  • Bearcats look to get better...

    The optimist says things can’t get any worse than things were last Friday at Meade County. Anderson County got little accomplished on either side of the ball and took a 48-0 whipping.

    The pessimist would point out that Meade went 2-9 a year ago and this week’s opponent, Mercer County, advanced to a regional championship game in Class 4A and has some key performers back in the fold.

  • ‘That’s football’

    If you’ve been around high school football as much as I have, you had to hold your breath a little in the fourth quarter of Anderson County’s game at George Rogers Clark last Friday night.

    The game was already in hand, with the only question being the final score, but there was Anderson County quarterback Tyler Peters racing around left end. Just before he got to the sideline across the field from the Anderson bench, he took a wicked hit that lifted him off the ground. Then took another that flipped Peters in mid-air.

  • Joyful day for Lady Cats in...

    A 14th place finish in its own tournament might not sound like much, but success is measured in many different ways in high school sports.

    Such is the case for the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team. The Lady Bearcats finished 14th in the 24-team Joy of Golf Tournament at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course Saturday, but turned in a 394 team score, the Lady Bearcats’ best of the season.

  • Scholastic sports bring...

    High School Athletic Association.

    Tailgates. Pep rallies. Friday night lights. The new school year is here! And that’s exciting news for student-athletes and high school sports fans alike.

  • Bearcats happy with win over...

    WINCHESTER – It was a scene Anderson County football had not experienced in a while.

    The Bearcats were smiling at the end of a football game Friday night.

    Anderson had just beaten host George Rogers Clark, 27-14, on a night when the Bearcats lost nearly every statistic except the one that counts. And in winning their season-opener, the Bearcats snapped a modest three-game losing streak dating to last October.
