    A grading and repaving project on the main boat ramp parking lot at Beaver Lake in Anderson County is underway, according to a news release.

    “We ask anglers and boaters use the overflow parking area across Beaver Lake Road from the ramp,” said David Baker, Central Fisheries District biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

    With the post-season approaching, the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team recorded a pair of match play wins before a tough tournament outing last week.

    The Lady Bearcats complete their regular season this week with a pair of matches and the West Jessamine Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Connemara Golf Course in Nicholasville. The Region 7 Tournament is set for Monday, Sept. 26 at Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort.

    Rose honored by Mid-South Conference

    Anderson County resident Joe Rose has been named the Mid-South Conference East Division Special Teams Player of the Week.

    Rose, a kicker for the University of the Cumberlands, hit both of his extra point attempts and totaled 167 yards on three kickoffs for the Patriots in a 17-14 loss at Cumberland University Saturday.

    Rose, a junior, was so honored by the MSC for the second consecutive week and the third time in four weeks this season.

  • Anderson to host annual Volley...

    The Anderson County High School volleyball team will undertake its biggest weekend of the year when the Lady Bearcats host the annual VolleySmash tournament Friday and Saturday.

    The Lady Bearcats will host 11 other teams from around Kentucky in an event that will give each team three pool play games then enter an elimination tournament. The tournament begins Friday, Sept. 23, at 5:30 p.m. and resumes Saturday, Sept. 24 at 9 a.m. Both of the gyms in the main high school building will be used.

  • Western Hills holds on as Lady...

    It could be easy for Anderson County girls’ soccer fans to panic. It would also be easy to rationalize that the Lady Bearcats have not been healthy all season.

    Even though the Lady Bearcats dropped two matches last week, making it five setbacks in the last six matches, neither reaction is completely warranted.

    It is true that Anderson is struggling to score, but both Evan Kays and Taylor Harley, two of the team’s top offensive threats, finally saw some action last week after being injured most of the season.

  • Bearcats visit Dunbar looking to...

    Anderson County gets another chance at ending a long drought against Lexington high school football programs when the Bearcats travel to Paul L. Dunbar.

    Anderson has not beaten a team from Lexington since the 1969 season, when the Bearcats defeated Tates Creek, 6-0. The year before, Anderson posted one of the most memorable wins in Bearcat history, a 20-0 pasting of Tates Creek on what is now called Bob Ware Field. Ware was a member of that Anderson team.

  • Franklin leads Bearcats past...

    Blake Franklin ran for 193 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Anderson County High School football team to a 35-21 win over archrival Franklin County Friday night on Bob Ware Field.

    Both totals were career bests for Franklin, a junior.

    The game was delayed for over 90 minutes when lightning was spotted in the area. While storms never visited the Anderson field, high school rules required the game be stopped until lightning or thunder had passed for 30 minutes.

    At the time of the delay, Anderson led 14-7 early in the third quarter.

  • Protesting pros could learn...

    What in the world are they thinking?

    The key word is “thinking.” Or more specifically, the lack of thinking by bench-warming millionaire Colin Kaepernick and his misguided minions.

    If you don’t know about Ol’ Colin’s antics, you have undoubtedly been putting on your best imitation of Rip Van Winkle or you have been mountain climbing in Tibet.
