  • Curry rockets to big time

    Bailey Curry knew all along where she wanted to attend college. Thursday, she made it official when she signed an NCAA grant-in-aid with the University of Toledo.

    Curry, who has been starting varsity catcher since the sixth grad, has had her heart set on Toledo since her first visit to the Mid-American Conference school.

  • BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW:...

    Every time I look in the mirror

    All these lines on my face getting clearer

    The past is gone

    It went by like dusk to dawn

    --Aerosmith

    The past is gone for the Anderson County boys’ basketball team. The Bearcats had plenty of reasons to shout, plenty of accolades during a 2015-16 season that saw their coach, Glen Drury, record his 500th career win in 31 seasons.

  • BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW:...

    John Paul Garmon is healthy again.

    That news alone is enough to make Anderson County basketball fans happy as the Bearcats open the season on Dec. 2.

    A year ago, the sight of Garmon clutching his right shoulder and signaling to Coach Glen Drury that he needed to come out of the game was one Bearcat fans witnessed more than they wanted.

    “It was bad,” Garmon says. “Sometimes on a scale of 1-10, it was about a 9.”

  • LADY BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW:...

    It doesn’t take long to locate that moment that drives the Anderson County High School girls’ basketball team this winter. On just needs to look at the Lady Bearcats’ season results.

    Look at that last entry, made on Feb. 29.

    Walton-Verona 64, Anderson County 47. The same Walton-Verona team that the Lady Cats had whipped just over two weeks before.

  • LADY BEARCAT BASKETBALL PREVIEW...

    When Sammy Rogers and Alorra Sims talk about the girls’ high school basketball season in Anderson County it has to be music to Lady Bearcat fans’ ears.

    String music. It could be the basketball net or guitar strings, but either way, that music should be sweet. Very sweet.

    The only returning starters for the Lady Bearcats, Rogers and Sims give Anderson an unusual senior combo that can not only create matchup issues for the opposition, but totally fits their different personalities.

  • Waterfowl season promising

    By Lee McClellan

    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    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.
