  • Smallish Lady Bearcats dreaming...

    Replacing nearly every cog in a machine is not easy, but that is what awaits the Anderson County High School volleyball program in 2016.

    Not only did the Lady Bearcats lose nine seniors, they are without tall frontline players who had the ability to dominate at the net and a defensive specialist who is now playing college volleyball.

  • Parents, businesses raising...

    Beth McFarland does not claim to be a football expert but she knew something was wrong when she attended one of her son’s practices at Anderson County Middle School recently.

    “The blocking sled pads were literally falling off,” she says. “They were in terrible shape.”

    McFarland’s husband, Tommy, is a welder, so he volunteered to repair the frame of the five-station sled, but replacing the pads will cost money. Quite a bit of money that the program does not have.

  • How could NFL botch big weekend...

    Notes scribbled after trying to watch football at home Sunday night...

    Has there ever been a more bizarre scene than the one that unfolded for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game?

    Football.

    The inaugural Eric Chrisman Memorial 5K Walk/Run will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10 according to a news release.

  • Title dream ends in championship...

    RICHMOND -- The Anderson County Little League 9- and 10-year-old all-star team went to Richmond with big dreams for last week’s state tournament at Lake Reba Park.

    Like all teams entering statewide play for the first time, the Anderson stars had visions of going home with the banner declaring them to be the best Little League team in Kentucky at their age level.
