  • Donations to improve farming...

    During its last meeting, The Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation Board of Directors voted to donate more than $1 million in incentives toward the facility’s new Grain and Forage Center of Excellence.

    The funds will be divided between two specific projects, with $500,000 spent over a five-year period for the naming rights of the main entrance, and the remaining $500,000 paid over a five-year period that will support statewide water recourses targeted specifically to enhance water management as part of ongoing research.

  • Favorite player taught life...

    It was back in 1964 when I fell in love with baseball.

    It always has been, probably always will be my favorite sport.

    When I discovered the “Game of the Week,” announcers Dizzy Dean and his podnuh Pee Wee Reese, I also learned that the team closest to my Anderson County home, the Cincinnati Reds, had a guy suiting up with the coolest name I had ever heard.

    Vada Pinson.

    The man could hit and do so with power. He could steal bases and when roaming center field, he seemed to just glide to the ball.

  • New net coach looks to hang...

    As he stops practice to point out some errors in how his Anderson County volleyball team is doing things, new coach Ryan Brown displays the patience of knowing he's dealing with high school girls, but also the drive that indicates he has high expectations for the Lady Bearcats.

    “I push my girls every single day,” says Brown, who is in the first year of his first head coaching job. “I demand perfection. I know no one is perfect but if you practice perfect, you play perfect. I am really tough on the girls and challenge them every day.”

  • Undefeated teams to be honored...

    The Anderson County High School football team will be honoring the undefeated 1986 and 2007 Bearcats prior to the home opener with Mercer County on Sept. 1. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • Thompson on target in 3-star...

    Anderson County High School student Henry Thompson swept his final middle school archery competition in the National Archery in the Schools Program IBO 3-Star Challenge, held at Seven Springs Ski Resort in Seven Springs, Pa. over the weekend.

  • High school basketball Hall of...

    The Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame (KHSBHF) is now open to the public, according to a news release. The facility, located at 212 West Dixie Avenuein Elizabethtown, celebrated the Grand Opening Saturday.

    The $1.75M facility highlights the legendary players and coaches of the first 100 years of High School basketball across the Commonwealth. 

  • Hamrick steps down at...

    Former Anderson County High School girls' tennis coach Kristen Hamrick has resigned as women's tennis coach at Campbellsville University.

    According to a news release, Hamrick resigned from her position at Campbellsville in July to pursue a teaching position in Anderson County.

    “We are definitely saddened with the decision by Kristen to return home to take a teaching position in her old school but certainly understand the choice to do so,” Campbellsville athletic director Jim Hardy said in the release.

  • Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease...

    Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease has been reported in white-tailed deer in several east Kentucky counties. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources received confirmation from the Georgia- based Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study Wednesday morning of a Kentucky deer with a strain of the disease.

  • Revamped staff fuels excitement...

    I probably learned more about football while sitting under a shade tree and drinking tea than I could by watching the NFL Network 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Of course it helped that I lived near Alton and I was visiting my neighbor, Buddy Ryan.

    At the time, he was one of the hot names in the NFL as he had coached that incredible defense of the 1985 Chicago Bears and then coached the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals. All the while, he was living in Anderson County in the off-season and sometimes held impromptu lessons in the game.

  • Madison Southern set to rule...

    For the last two years, Madison Southern has had its way in Class 5A, District 6. It figures to be the same again in 2017.

    It is ironic that the Eagles have so dominated the district over that time with an average winning margin of nearly four touchdowns. In the previous 10 years, Madison Southern had compiled a 41-67 record and saw perhaps the greatest player in the program’s history, Damien Harris, head to the University of Alabama after the 2014 season.
