  • ‘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.”

  • LADY BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW:...

    It doesn’t take long to locate that moment that drives the Anderson County High School girls’ basketball team this winter. On just needs to look at the Lady Bearcats’ season results.

    Look at that last entry, made on Feb. 29.

    Walton-Verona 64, Anderson County 47. The same Walton-Verona team that the Lady Cats had whipped just over two weeks before.

  • LADY BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW...

    When Sammy Rogers and Alorra Sims talk about the girls’ high school basketball season in Anderson County it has to be music to Lady Bearcat fans’ ears.

    String music. It could be the basketball net or guitar strings, but either way, that music should be sweet. Very sweet.

    The only returning starters for the Lady Bearcats, Rogers and Sims give Anderson an unusual senior combo that can not only create matchup issues for the opposition, but totally fits their different personalities.

  • Curry rockets to big time

    Bailey Curry knew all along where she wanted to attend college. Thursday, she made it official when she signed an NCAA grant-in-aid with the University of Toledo.

    Curry, who has been starting varsity catcher since the sixth grad, has had her heart set on Toledo since her first visit to the Mid-American Conference school.

  • McKee hurts shoulder in season...

    MOREHEAD -- Former Anderson County High School basketball star Eriel McKee, now playing for Morehead State, suffered an injury to her left shoulder during the Eagles’ season opener with Georgia State Friday night.

    McKee and several other players collided in a scramble for a loose ball with 25.4 seconds to play in the first half in the first game of the Donna Murphy Classic at Morehead’s Ellis Johnson Arena.

  • Shelburne excited about return...

    When he came to Lawrenceburg for Cat Madness a year ago, it was the first time J.D. Shelburne had been to Anderson County High School since playing basketball against the Bearcats 15 years before.

    The Taylorsville native quickly became a fan of the Bearcats and the adulation was mutual.

    He’s back to sing and shoot 3-pointers by popular demand.
