  • Waterfowl season promising

    The moderate drought conditions across Kentucky brought baked, cracked yards, dust, fires and streams as low as any time in recent memory. This would seem a negative for the upcoming waterfowl season, but the summer’s ample rains provided a cushion against the fall dry spell.

  • Bullitt Central ends Bearcat...

    The stunned looks, the tears and the hugs were all simple yet powerful reminders of the finality of high school football in November.

    Anderson County had climbed all the way back from a 21-0 deficit only to see Bullitt Central’s Gavin Curry score on the second play of overtime to lift the Cougars to a 31-24 victory in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs on Bob Ware Field Friday night.

  • Criticism of Peach ignores...

    One of the most endearing images from my more than three decades with The Anderson News is a picture snapped on the afternoon of Dec. 2, 2004.

    It’s of Sonny Fentress, then the superintendent of Anderson County schools. He’d broken into a big smile as he was clutching the contract of the new football coach at Anderson County High School, Mark Peach, who was addressing the returning Bearcats a few moments after being introduced.

  • Cat Madness is coming!

    Expectations are high for Anderson County basketball in 2016-17. The Bearcats are tabbed by many as the team to beat in the Eighth Region after a run to the regional championship game last March. Anderson boast arguably the best player in the region in junior Cobe Penny and another ranked among the region’s best in senior John Paul Garmon.

    Add a solid group of younger players along with veteran coach Glen Drury, who won his 500th career game last year, and one can understand why Bearcat fans are itching for a Sweet 16 trip in March.

  • Cann shakes off rust in Wildcat...

    A jump shot was kind of like a couple of sprays of WD-40 for Makenzie Cann last Thursday.

    Playing her first basketball game in almost two years, the University of Kentucky junior looked just a bit rusty when she first entered the lineup against Union University last Thursday night. With just over four minutes to play in the first quarter, Cann made her way to the scorer’s table at Memorial Coliseum and ran up and down the floor a few times,getting into the flow of things.

  • Shouse upbeat despite Wildcat...

    Anderson County High School graduate Will Shouse was upbeat even after watching his Asbury University team take a 156-63 drubbing at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats Sunday night in Rupp Arena.

    As expected, Kentucky did as it pleased against Asbury, an NAIA Division II school. Kentucky scored 88 points in the first half and turned the contest into a dunk fest.

  • Kays honored as All-Region, All-...

    Anderson County High School girls’ soccer player Evan Kays has been named an honorable mention All-State selection by the Kentucky Girls’ Soccer Coaches Association.

    Kays, a junior, was also named to the Eighth Region All-Region first team.

    Another Anderson player, Taylor Harley, was named to the All-Region second team.

    Five Anderson players were picked as Eighth Region all-region honorable mention selections. They were seniors Billie Clark, Zellie Roher, Lexi Thompson and Tate Thompson along with freshman Anna Foley.

  • Healthy, robust herd awaits as...

    By Kevin Kelly, Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    Shredded bark on saplings, fresh scrapes along old logging trails and trail camera snapshots of passing bucks are encouraging signs that deer activity is picking up across Kentucky and just in time.

    The statewide modern firearm deer season opens Nov. 12 this year. Arguably the most widely anticipated of the fall hunting opportunities, it’s structured to coincide with the peak of fall breeding, known as the rut.
