    Cleaning out the mail box, I ran across some real dandies last week. They are the kind that make me want to go find my old Kris Kristofferson 8-track and sing along.
    “Why Me, Lord?”
    Really, when you are in this business you get all kinds. Many notes are from very nice people who say nice things about a certain article or our coverage in general. Sometimes, those notes come in when they are least expected but most needed.
    All I can say about those is a very heartfelt, “Thank you.”

    It took Brian Glass a bit longer than normal before he was ready to talk with the press last Tuesday night.

    The Anderson County softball coach generally goes over a few things with his team before heading straight to his dugout to chat for public consumption.

    But last Tuesday, after Oldham County had ended his team's dream of a state tournament trip, Glass told the Lady Bearcats he was proud of their efforts, both on the season and for the game, then headed to the team locker room with his coaching staff.

    Anderson County High School basketball players Makenzie Cann and Eriel McKee are set to suit up for the Kentucky Junior All-Stars as they take on their Indiana counterparts in a two-game series this weekend.

    Both McKee and Cann are expected to be contenders for the state's Miss Basketball award in 2014.

    Thirty minutes after it was all over, faint smiles tried to break through the tears.

    The hugs lasted longer than they normally do. Words were not necessary.

    The tears, some still lingering despite the smiles, spoke all that needed to be said.

    Anderson County's softball season had come to an end. Oldham County, the defending champion and Kentucky's seventh-ranked team, had killed the dream with a 4-2 win in the Eighth Region semifinal on the Lady Bearcats' home field

    Working this craft as long as I have – 28 years – teaches some truths that will never be part of the class syllabus in Journalism 101.
