  • ONLINE EXTRA: How they stack up

    With the Cincinnati Reds being contenders with a lot of young talent, talk around Reds Country has been how the current Reds measure up to some of the great Reds teams of the past. I have seen the Reds win the World Series three times in my lifetime and I won't insult your intelligence by comparing the 2010 Reds with the Big Red Machine of 1975 and 1976 other than to say no current Reds' every day player would crack that lineup at the same position.

  • COLUMN: Local Reds fans...

    There is joy in Reds Country again.

    At least for now there is.

    Being in a pennant race 100 games into the baseball season for the first time in more than a decade will do that to you, you know.

    If some conversations at the Anderson County Invitational for youth league baseball teams are correct, Anderson County is still the territory of the Cincinnati Reds. The passion for professional baseball's oldest franchise is alive and well locally and it has been energized by what is going on in the National League's Central Division.

  • Lady Bearcats hope third time...

    Anderson County girls' soccer hopes that a gold medal from the Bluegrass State Games is more than just a charm in 2010.

    The Lady Bearcats stunned highly-regarded South Oldham, 2-1, in the gold medal game played Sunday in Versailles. The victory gave Anderson the summer tournament's top prize for the third straight season.

  • Zone changes could affect deer...

    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife has officially issued its official hunting and trapping guide for the upcoming seasons. Not much has changed from last year’s regulations but always pick up a copy of the guide and read it before going afield.

  • Carbajal, Beasley team up again...

    When they walked off the soccer pitch for the last time together, little did Abril Carbajal and Sydney Beasley know the twists and turns of the sport would make them teammates again almost seven years later.

    And they certainly did not think about playing together in the United States Adult Soccer Association national championships.

  • North Laurel ends Anderson run...

    CORBIN – For more than two weeks, Anderson County's Little League tournament run had been an unlikely meshing of Cinderella with the firepower of the Nimitz Strike Force.

    Unfortunately for the local 11-year-old All-Stars, the dream of Anderson County's first state championship came crashing down in a Humpty Dumpty ending last Tuesday night. The North Laurel All-Stars took advantage of every Anderson mistake and shut down what had been a collection of potent bats for a 12-3 win in the state semi-finals at Strickland Field in Corbin's Rotary Park.

  • Anderson girls' soccer wins...

    The Anderson County High School girls' soccer team took the gold medal in the Bluegrass State Games competition, held Saturday and Sunday in Versailles.

    The Lady Bearcats, who are expected to be a regional contender in 2010, got some revenge by defeating perennial power South Oldham 2-1 in the championship game. South Oldham had defeated Anderson 3-1 on Saturday.

    Earlier in the tournament, Anderson had beaten Ryle, 1-0, and Highlands, 2-0, to advance to the final.

  • North Laurel shatters Anderson...

    CORBIN – Anderson County's dream of a state championship came crashing down Tuesday as the North Laurel All-Stars rolled to a 12-3 win in the semifinal round of the Little League state baseball tournament for 11-year-olds, held at Corbin Rotary Park.

    North Laurel batted around and took advantage of a pair of Anderson errors to score four times in the first inning, then made Anderson pay for another miscue in the second by scoring three more runs.

  • COLUMN: Enjoy moment with our 11s

    So many times during last basketball season, John Calipari admonished Kentucky Wildcat fans to enjoy the moment.

    Have fun. Savor the good times. Remember that we are talking about games.

    Games, in this instance, played by boys.

    Boys who, for the time being, dream of hitting the walk-off home run in the seventh game of the World Series. Boys whose voices have not deepened and who probably should not be throwing curve balls.

  • LITTLE LEAGUE: Anderson County...

    This was a long season where each player had to earn his spot on the roster based on his performance.

    The journey isn’t over yet, but the Anderson County 11-and-under All-Stars made history Saturday evening by winning their first Little League district championship.

    The all-stars will play in the state tournament beginning Saturday and say their goal isn’t just to be there, but to win it.

    Looking back on the games the team played to get to this point, one would have to say their district championship and state dreams began with a nightmare.
