    It was only the softball season-opener, but Anderson County pitchers have already issued a “Can you top this?” challenge.

    Freshmen Ally Moore and Mia Aldridge combined for a no-hitter as the Lady Bearcats rolled  Coffman High of Dublin, Ohio, 10-0 in five innings, last Wednesday at the Anderson field.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcat bats silenced...

    Anderson County baseball is looking for bats. Any size, any shape or any color. Just anything that might generate some offense.

    At least, that was the case last week as the Bearcats mustered just one hit in two games, dropping contests at Paul L. Dunbar and Madison Central. Two strong Bearcat pitching performances went by the board.

  • Cinderella FGCU hits home for...

    Raise your hand if you really, truly knew the first thing, anything, about Florida Gulf Coast University before Friday night.

    Be honest now. Did you really know anything about Sherwood Brown, Brett Comer and the millionaire coach with the super-model wife.

  • Researchers seek public’s help...

    Researchers are seeking the public's help in finding more nesting sites of Kentucky's remaining barn owls, according to a news release.

    Barn owls, with their distinctive heart-shaped faces and dark eyes, were plentiful across Kentucky as late as the 1960s. Currently, however, there are only about 25 documented nesting locations statewide.

    Wildlife biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources need to locate as many barn owl nesting sites as possible to gain a deeper understanding of why this species has declined in the state.

  • Three Rams named all-stars

    Three Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg basketball players have been named to the Kentucky Christian Schools Athletic Association all-star team.

  • Young Lady Bearcats give coach...

    Anderson County softball coach Brian Glass is smiling mighty big these days.

    It is true that the Lady Bearcats seemed to catch fire at the end of the 2012 season, winning their third 30th District title in five years and advanced to the Eighth Region semifinals four the fourth time in six seasons.

    The Lady Bearcats only finished 18-16, but Glass focuses on last May. “Toward the end of the season, there is no doubt we got a lot better,” he says. “We started trusting one another as a team.”
