  • Five ways to save money for...

    Although the price of a gallon of gas is lower than at any time in recent memory, not many folks have extra money to burn.

    This is especially true for non-essential things such as fishing reels, shotguns, hunting clothing or fishing waders. Adult commitments such as your mortgage must be paid before any money goes toward a new spinning reel. Obtaining quality hunting and fishing gear inexpensively is a useful skill for outdoors enthusiasts to learn.

    There is a saying in fishing that goes “the best time to go fishing is when you can.”

    With the frenetic pace and busy schedules of modern life, the saying is true more than ever. However, if you only have a few weekends each spring to fish, the experience yields more stress reduction, enjoyment and memories if the fish bite like crazy.

  • Legends’ national anthem tryouts...

    The Lexington Legends will determine at least one starting lineup in February – and that’s the lineup of singers and musicians who will sing or play the national anthem before each Legends home game in 2015.

  • Swimmers set personal marks but...

    Despite several personal bests in the Region 3 Swim Meet, the Anderson County High School swim team was unable to take that elusive next step.

    While several entries made it to the regional finals, no Anderson swimmer was able to advance to the state meet.

    The top two finishers from each region in each event advance to the state meet along with the 22 best at-large times from around the state.

    Thirty-four teams are aligned in Region 3, which held its meet last Friday and Saturday at Falling Springs Recreation Center in Versailles.

  • Five Mat Cats qualify for state...

    VERSAILLES -- Five Anderson County High School wrestlers qualified for the state tournament with strong performances in the Region 5 Tournament at Woodford County High School Saturday.

    The top four finishers in each weight class advance to the state tournament, which will be held Friday and Saturday in Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    Three other Mat Cats finished fifth and are alternates for the region.

  • Region winners
  • Gentle giant larger than life

    When you are 10 or 12 years old, the world around you is often growing closer and simultaneously getting bigger.

    And the heroes can vary.

    I grew up in the 1960s and 70s. Those were the days of three television channels – if the weather was good and you had a decent antenna – and AM radio. Wireless phones that fit in your pocket were just on Star Trek.

  • Remembering Jack Upchurch

    “Jack was a player’s coach, firm, direct, decisive and always fair. God gave me the talent, Jack taught me what to do with it. I am blessed by my many years of association with Jack and he will be missed but not forgotten. He was the father figure I needed and gave me an example of how to live.”

    -- Jimmy Dan Conner, Kentucky Mr. Basketball in 1971, All-American, and All-State member of Anderson County’s 1971 state runner-up team

  • CATS WILL THEIR WAY PAST PANTHERS

    Success on the basketball court is more often determined by those few inches between the ears than a quick first step or being taller than the opponent.

    The latest exhibit is the Anderson County High School boys’ basketball team which willed its way to a 73-67 win over Frankfort Saturday afternoon in the Gary Moore Classic at Franklin County High School.

  • Lady Cats focus on March, split...

    When the calendar turns to February, just about everything is done with a focus on March.

    At least that is how it is in high school basketball and was definitely the case for the Anderson County girls last week when they defeated Bryan Station but lost to Mercy Academy, one of the top teams in the Louisville area. The Lady Bearcats stand at 15-10 on the year.

    Last Tuesday, the Lady Bearcats pulled out a 49-46 win over Bryan Station in Lexington.
