  • Anderson splits road tests...

    Austin Cummins poured in more than 40 points in successive games, but Anderson County could only salvage a split when it defeated Owen County but lost to Simon Kenton the following night.

    Cummins tallied 44 Thursday night when the Bearcats won at Owen County, 73-65. The following night, Cummins tallied 41, but Simon Kenton defeated the Bearcats, 80-71.

    Complete statistics were not available at press time.

    It is believed to be the first time an Anderson County player has recorded consecutive 40-point outings.

  • Bearcats rip Carroll County

    Anderson County never trailed as the Bearcats routed overmatched visiting Carroll County 86-53 last Tuesday night.

    Austin Cummins, who had totaled 119 points in his previous three games, scored 19 this time to lead the Bearcats, who placed four players in double figures. The Bearcats continuously pushed the action and shot just over 50 percent from the field, many of the field goal attempts coming at the end of fast breaks.

  • Third quarter blitz fuels Lady...

    SHELBYVILLE – The good teams make the plays when they need to.

    At least that is what the old adage, or a reasonable facsimile thereof, says. If it is true, then the Anderson County girls make up a good team.

    After a night of sputtering like a car needing a tuneup, the Lady Bearcats blitzed host Collins for a 13-1 scoring spurt to go up 52-32 at the end of the third quarter last Wednesday.

    Game. Set. Match.

  • Lady Cats collapse in fourth,...

    To say nothing went right for Anderson County in the fourth quarter of Friday's loss to Woodford County is akin to saying the temperatures dropped a bit over the weekend.

    The Lady Bearcats saw a 15-point lead disappear as they tasted defeat on their home court for the third time this year. Woodford closed things out with a 24-2 run to improve to 13-15.

    The Yellow Jackets avenged a 57-41 Anderson win in the Mingua Beef Jerky Classic at Bourbon County just after Christmas.

    It should have never happened, Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell said.

  • Whiteside dominates glass for...

    Asbury avenged a 24-point loss to Midway by scoring an 82-58 win last Tuesday in Wilmore.

    Midway had whipped Asbury back on Jan. 6.

    Anderson County resident Kali Whiteside dominated the glass, pulling down 16 rebounds and blocking four shots. She also scored seven points and was credited with two assists as Asbury improved to 21-6.

    Although the price of a gallon of gas is lower than at any time in recent memory, not many folks have extra money to burn.

    This is especially true for non-essential things such as fishing reels, shotguns, hunting clothing or fishing waders. Adult commitments such as your mortgage must be paid before any money goes toward a new spinning reel. Obtaining quality hunting and fishing gear inexpensively is a useful skill for outdoors enthusiasts to learn.

    There is a saying in fishing that goes “the best time to go fishing is when you can.”

    With the frenetic pace and busy schedules of modern life, the saying is true more than ever. However, if you only have a few weekends each spring to fish, the experience yields more stress reduction, enjoyment and memories if the fish bite like crazy.

  • Legends’ national anthem tryouts...

    The Lexington Legends will determine at least one starting lineup in February – and that’s the lineup of singers and musicians who will sing or play the national anthem before each Legends home game in 2015.

  • Gentle giant larger than life

    When you are 10 or 12 years old, the world around you is often growing closer and simultaneously getting bigger.

    And the heroes can vary.

    I grew up in the 1960s and 70s. Those were the days of three television channels – if the weather was good and you had a decent antenna – and AM radio. Wireless phones that fit in your pocket were just on Star Trek.
