  • COLUMN: Community pride in Lady...

    There are people who will try to convince you that no one cares about high school sports any more.

    They should have been in Diddle Arena last week.

    Then there are some who just say that high school sports really aren't important, that our schools should be spending all of their resources on academics.

    They should have been in Diddle, too.

    It seemed like everyone else in Lawrenceburg was there.

  • SWEET 16: Marion ends Lady...

    Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

    --Theodore Roosevelt.

  • SWEET 16 ONLINE EXTRA: Marion...

    BOWLING GREEN -- Ever since the first statewide rankings for girls' high school basketball came out around Jan. 1, the only question people have asked is "Who is No. 2?"

    They knew Marion County would be No. 1. The Lady Knights have been perched atop the Top 10, Top 25 or whatever number you want to use since the start of practice on Oct. 15 – actually before that – and have given no reason for anyone to think otherwise.

  • SWEET 16: History does not...

    BOWLING GREEN -- History would not repeat itself Friday afternoon. No way.

    Not with No. 1 Marion County waiting for the Anderson County girls' basketball team.

    The Lady Bearcats made sure of that with an impressive 65-23 shellacking of Shelby Valley in the quarter-final round of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls' Sweet 16 being held at Western Kentucky University's Diddle Arena

  • Sweet 16 alters Anderson sports...

    The Anderson County High School's baseball team's game at Louisville Eastern on Friday has been canceled, the school has announced. The decision was made to allow all Anderson County students to attend Friday afternoon's Girls' Sweet 16 game in Bowling Green.

    Anderson County plays Shelby Valley in the state quarter-finals at 2:30 p.m. Friday.

  • SWEET 16 ONLINE EXTRA: Shelby...

    After outlasting the best team from western Kentucky in their Sweet 16 opener, Anderson County's Lady Bearcats turn their attention to the pride of eastern Kentucky, Shelby Valley, in Friday's quarterfinal action.

    Tipoff is set for 2:30 p.m., Eastern time, at Diddle Arena in Bowling Green.

  • SWEET 16: Lady Bearcats hold off...

    BOWLING GREEN – On a night when it seemed as though everything had been golden for Anderson County, it still game down to some old-fashioned, blue-collar work to give the Lady Bearcats a 65-54 win over Henderson County in the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls' Sweet 16 opener Wednesday night.

  • SWEET 16 ONLINE EXTRA: Former...

    Ken Rideout did not graduate from Anderson County High School, but he considers himself an alumnus and a member of the Anderson Class of 1976.

    He, more than anyone in the world, might have a unique take on Wednesday's girls' Sweet 16 game between Anderson County and Henderson County. While living in Lawrenceburg, one of Ken's best friends was Tony Kays, current coach of the Lady Bearcats.

  • SWEET 16 ONLINE EXTRA: Softball...

     

    I took to Twitter and Facebook, asking our readers for cool stories about the girls' Eighth Region tournament or the Sweet 16. I got this classic from Melinda Daugherty, a Lawrenceburg native who now lives in Florida.

  • OUTDOORS: White bass runs coming...

    Some old-time anglers in Kentucky say the white bass run when the redbud trees bloom in spring. Others say they run when the dogwoods bloom.

    Fisheries biologists say don't watch the trees, watch the water temperatures.

    "White bass begin their spring spawning runs when the water temperatures reach the low 50s," said Gerry Buynak, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "It is just around the corner."
