  • BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Deep,...

    It has been almost three years.

    It doesn't seem possible but it really has been almost 33 months since that night when Anderson County whipped Simon Kenton for the Eighth Region championship in 2010.

    It was supposed to be the start of a dynasty for a team that was made up, in large part, by middle schoolers when it took the floor for the state tournament a few days later.

    It just hasn't happened.

  • Youth take deer on opening...

    Anderson County youth display their prizes taken during the opening weekend of deer season.

  • Hoops season set to tip off

    There are many questions about the Anderson County boys' basketball team heading into the 2012-13 schedule, but Saturday night the Bearcats showed there is reason to believe some of the late February answers can be good ones.

  • CHRISTIAN ACADEMY: Rams rally...

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg captured a 61-55 overtime win over Bourbon Christian Friday night in Paris.

    The Rams' Forrest Bowman sank one of two free throws with five seconds to play in regulation to tie things, then the Rams dominated the overtime to take the win.

    Before the overtime, Christian Academy coach Cory Robinson told his team, “Come out on fire and don't let them gain momentum in the overtime.”

    The Rams stopped the tenacious Bourbon Christian team to take the win.

  • GOLF: Lady Bearcat golf looking...

    With the 2012 Anderson County High School girls' golf campaign in the books it was time to reflect on the season for Lady Bearcats' coach Todd Hyatt, according to a news release.

    “We had a lot of firsts this year: Katilyn Riley won our own tournament, The Joy of Golf, which was a first for Anderson County golfers,” Hyatt said in a press release.

    Anderson County High School senior Anna-Marie Hyatt was one of 40 female golfers from around the state selected to participate in the KGCA Senior All-Star Tournament, held at the University Club of Kentucky in Lexington on Oct. 20. Hyatt represented golf's Seventh Region as well.

    Despite battling strong winds and temperatures in the 40s, Hyatt finished in a seventh-place tie to cap her 5-year career at Anderson County High School.

  • COLUMN: Pennsylvania anthem...

    At first glance, the news out of Pennsylvania last week was more than a bit upsetting at first glance.

    In case you missed it, last Monday, the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League issued a directive to 183 member schools in the central and western portions of the state that they should no longer play the National Anthem before high school hockey games.

  • Rams open season

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' basketball team got on the winning track Saturday when the Rams whipped the Georgetown Home School group 65-40 on the academy's home floor. The Christian Academy defense limited Georgetown to 12 second half points after struggling through the first half.

    “We handled them easily last season so it was a struggle to keep our players focused for this game,” Christian Academy coach Cory Robinson said.

    Cat Madness has changed since Anderson County High School started the tradition, but one thing remains the same. It is still the event that signals high school basketball is upon us.

    Notes written while looking for turkey deals...

    You have to love the ambition of a lot of Kentucky football fans. Some think just because the Wildcats' head coaching job is open, anyone with a right mind would want to talk with Mitch Barnhart and company.

    Nice stadium. A couple of stud quarterbacks – Max Smith and Patrick Towles – already in the fold. A chance to coach in the SEC.  What more could someone ask for?
