  • SWIMMING: Anderson swimmers...

    The Anderson County High School swimming team has had a strong start during the first month of the 2011-12 season.


    New coach Karla Phillips said the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats have turned in strong times in the first three meets of the season, held at Russell County, Shelby County and Woodford County.


    Russell County hosted a meet that featured preliminary heats of 50 yards before moving up to 100 yards in the finals for the same stroke.

  • OUTDOORS: Make firearm safety a...

    I guess I’ll start out by piggy-backing off last month’s outdoor column concerning gun safety. I hope everybody had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year as well as safe.


    Guns can make very exciting gifts to start a new year, however, the responsibilities that come with the gift are tremendous. The giver, and well as the receiver, should understand the responsibility that comes with owning, using or handling firearms.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats hold off...

     

    Updated Dec. 30, 12:45 a.m.

    Anderson County simply refused to lose Thursday night.
    The Bearcats saw an 11-point lead dwindle to as little as three points on four separate occasions but never completely caved in as they defeated North Laurel, 55-52, in the championship game of the FNB Classic at Bracken County.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    The Anderson County girls’ basketball team rolled past fellow Kentucky school Letcher County Central, 58-46, on Tuesday in the KSA Holiday Tournament, being held in Orlando, Fla. Letcher Central is considered one of the top teams in the 14th Region.

  • Lady Bearcats take care of...

    SHELBYVILLE – Even when going scoreless for nearly four minutes to open last Friday’s game at Shelby County, there was little for Anderson County to be concerned about.


    The Lady Bearcats were just better. Much better.


    So much better that even after dismantling Shelby 49-22, it was easy to wonder if the Lady Bearcats had really put forth their best effort. It might not have been a fair assessment as Anderson has now beaten Shelby six straight times, including a pair of one-sided games last year and was heavily favored.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

    SHELBYVILLE – In case anyone had missed it, Anderson County basketball is alive and well.


    Granted, an 87-77 win at Shelby County last Friday probably raised few eyebrows when the score appeared statewide. That’s a direct result of the struggles surrounding a once-dominant Shelby program that has been on the skids since Collins High was formed out of Shelby last year.

  • HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: Anderson...

    The Anderson County boys’ basketball team stayed unbeaten Tuesday night with a 61-32 win over visiting Sayre.

    Anderson is now 6-0 on the season for the first time since the 1996-97 campaign.

    Sophomore Luke Mann came off the bench to lead the Bearcats with 13 points, sinking a trio of 3-pointers in the second quarter when the Bearcats took control.

    Lowell Gordon added nine points while Seth Carmichael pulled down eight rebounds.

  • Salato Wildlife Education Center...

    The Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort closed its doors for the winter on Dec. 11, according to a press release.

     The center, which is operated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, will reopen on Valentines Day, Feb. 14, the release said.

  • OUTDOORS: Catch some fish during...

    Most of us get some time off during the upcoming holidays. With all of the stress surrounding Christmas, what a better way to blow off some steam and get away from work and family obligations than hearing your drag screech from a trophy fish?  

    Winter is one the most productive trophy fishing times of the year for sauger, striped bass and even largemouth bass from farm ponds if the weather conditions cooperate.   

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Bearcat defense...

    Anderson County continued its surprising start with a 69-48 home-court thumping of regional rival Walton-Verona on Saturday night.
