    When water temperatures warm into the 70s, it's catfish time across Kentucky.

  • Free fishing opportunities...

    Families can take a free test drive of fishing fun during the first weekend of June.

    Kentucky celebrates free fishing weekend across the state June 1-2. It’s been an annual event since at least 1992.

    Moms, dads, grandparents, extended family and out-of-state visitors all can sample Kentucky’s fishing opportunities without having to buy a license or permit during this weekend. Size and creel limits on the number of fish that angles may keep still apply, however. Anglers may keep trout without possessing a trout permit during free fishing weekend.

  • OUTDOORS: Flawed elk hunt...

    Allow me to rant a little about the recent Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s annual elk “drawing.”

    As you can probably guess, neither I, nor anyone I know of as of this writing, was drawn for any of the tags again this year. I vowed before buying a license for the 2013-14 seasons that I would not “donate” another $10 of my hard earned money to a flawed system but I did anyway hoping for one last opportunity after all these years.

    The just completed Memorial Day holiday served as the unofficial start of recreational boating season in Kentucky.

    Boating safety officials with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources are urging everyone who plans to be on the water to keep safety in mind. About 90 percent of all boating accident victims die as a result of drowning.

  • 30th DISTRICT BASEBALL: Bearcats...

    SHELBYVILLE – It looked like a good pitch.

    It WAS a good pitch.

    Two were out in the bottom of the ninth and Anderson County's Josh Brown had 1-2 count on Collins' Dan Sanders.

    Somehow, though, Sanders got his bat on a fastball, dropping a soft line drive into right field to score Mason Jeffries and give Collins a 1-0 walk-off win over Anderson County in the 30th District semifinal game at Shelby County Athletic Complex last Tuesday.

  • 30th DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Rain can...

    A reading of the list of things that went wrong might have taken longer than actually getting the 30th District Softball Tournament championship in.

    It almost, repeat, almost, overshadowed the fact that Anderson County captured its second consecutive district title with an 8-6 win over Collins last Thursday.

  • SOFTBALL: Memorial Day fireworks...

    Fireworks aren't just for the Fourth of July.

    At least, that was the case around Anderson County softball Monday evening.

    Bailey Curry and Alissa Vest both belted Memorial Day home runs and the Lady Bearcat speed manufactured at least five runs as Anderson routed visiting Walton-Verona, 10-3, in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament.

  • Eighth Region softball pairings...

    Pairings for the Eighth Region Fast-pitch Softball Tournament, to be held at Anderson County High School, were announced at the tournament draw Sunday afternoon.

    Oldham County, ranked in the Top 10 most of the season, and Anderson County, the only other regional team to be ranked for an extended time, drew in the lower bracket and could face in the semifinal round.

    The tournament starts Monday morning and is set to run through Wednesday, weather permitting. Tickets are $5 at the gate.

  • Anderson County still rules 30th...

    Anderson County overcame an uncharacteristically sloppy performance to score an 8-6 win over Collins in the 30th District Tournament championship game played on a soggy Anderson field Thursday night.

    The Lady Bearcats committed three errors in the field and had several base running gaffes that included a pair of would-be base stealers gunned down after missing signs, according to Anderson coach Brian Glass.

  • District softball final...

    Tuesday afternoon's rainstorm forced postponement of the 30th District Softball Tournament championship game. Anderson County will host Collins Thursday evening at 6 p.m.
