    It is still one of the most gripping scenes etched in the memories of American sports fans.

    His left arm trembling as he lit his torch from swimmer Janet Evans, Muhammad Ali slowly turned to light the Olympic Flame at Turner Field to open the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. At one time perhaps the most recognizable face in the world, the man who could “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee” could only meet Evans on a platform.

  • Little Leaguers split first two...

    The Anderson County Little League All-Stars split their first two pool play games in the state tournament, which began on Saturday in Prestonsburg.

    In the opener on Saturday, Marion County romped past Anderson, 10-0 in a game called after five innings because of the “mercy rule.”

  • Senior League drops state...

    BUCKNER – Even though Anderson County led 2-0 midway through its first round game of the Senior League state baseball tournament, one got the feeling the margin was not safe.

    It wasn't

    South Oldham erupted for three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, then added an insurance run one inning later to defeat Anderson 4-2 at in the double-elimination tournament at Oldham County High School.

    Hot, hot, hot! I know that anyone reading this didn’t need to be reminded of just how hot the weather has been here in Kentucky. The drought is really taking a toll on everything seems like.  The yards, gardens, trees and even the wildlife seem to be taking a pretty stressful hit when things stay so hot and dry for so long. We went almost a month at my place without a decent rain.  It does save gas on mowing but it sure makes the grass awfully crispy walking to check out my trail cams.

  • Little League and Senior League...

     

    The Anderson County Little League All-Stars will open play in the state tournament when they play Marion County on Saturday, July 21 at 6 p.m. All tournament games are being held at Stone Crest Field in Prestonsburg.

    The tournament is a pool play event with the top two teams from each pool advancing to the elimination tournament.

Spaulding is playing in the advanced division with over 300 disc golfers participating while Beasley and Martin will be playing against 33 other participants in the boys' 16-and-under division.

    Now wasn't that fun? Want to try it again sometime?

    You know, that little five-week playoff party that Anderson County had last year. It was a blast, even though the ending was not what most everyone around these parts would have hoped.

    But we were realists. Few gave Anderson County a chance to beat Bowling Green in the state Class 5A football championship game and the Purples showed why, rolling up a 55-3 win, the largest final game margin ever in Kentucky. Bowling Green really was that good.

  • BASEBALL: Anderson wins Little...

    HARRODSBURG – Even when Mercer County had briefly taken an early lead Monday night, there was never a hint of worry in the eyes of the Anderson County Little League All-Stars.

    They were joking and cutting up like 12-year-olds. And they displayed the confidence of the champion they became with a 14-3 mercy-rule win in the District 3 final at Anderson-Dean Park in Harrodsburg.

    It is Anderson's first district title in the 12-year-old division and is the first step toward advancing to the Little League World Series.
