    The holiday commercials already swamping our collective brains along with winds straight from the North Pole remind us that short-sleeve weather is now months away. Winter is here.

    Waterfowl hunters don’t see these developments as bad news. They are getting their bags of decoys out of storage, cleaning and oiling shotguns and practicing their calling. Waterfowl season, for both ducks and geese, opens Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.

    The Bearcats host Garrard County, a team that Anderson coach Glen Drury says he knew very little about at press time.

    “They have some players back,” he said. “That’s about all I know about them.”

    Drury said the Lions were scheduled to scrimmage on Nov. 22 and Nov. 28.

  • Cooper 'A-game,'...

    Everything was lining up right for Anderson County to make a serious run at a state football championship.

    The Bearcats had overcome a district play slip-up to host the Class A Region 3 championship football game. Anderson had been on a bit of a hot streak, winning four straight and eight of their last nine games.

    There was one problem.

  • COLUMN: Awesome fans electrified...

    I can't say I would be a millionaire if I had a dollar for every time I have heard, “When we have more people in the stands than the home team,” but I would sure have enough money to buy tickets to a lot more Cincinnati Reds' games.

    I heard it again Friday night.

    And, “We go on the road, we are like the home team on the road.”

    Cooper made a statement in the Class 5A high school football playoffs Friday night.

    A very loud statement.

    The Jaguars totally dominated what had been expected to be a nail-biter to post a 61-14 win over Anderson County in the Region 3 championship game at Warford Stadium.

    Cooper running back Torry Cordell-Armstrong blitzed the Bearcats for 351 yards on 31 carries and scored four touchdowns to lead the Jaguars to the state semi-finals for the second time in three years. Cooper will play at Pulaski County next Friday night.
