  • Holloman continues football...

    Brian Holloman came on as head coach of the Anderson County Middle School Mustangs’ football team late this summer. Holloman took the position after former coach Chris Glass had been selected as an assistant principal at Anderson County High School. He took on a new leadership role following a man who had directed the middle school football program to a 12-2 record, a conference championship and a runner-up finish in the state middle school football tournament the year before.

  • Fall turkey hunting a challenge...

    Hunting strategies are different, calling is not as critical to success, and birds are often in big flocks, concentrating on local food sources – everything about fall wild turkey hunting makes it more challenging than the spring season.
    The key to success in the spring is getting close to gobbling toms and seducing them into gun range with subtle hen calls such as clucks, purrs and yelps. Communication between the sexes is a major part of the mating ritual.

  • Salato Center hosts annual...

    Ghosts and goblins of all ages can join the fun at the Salato Wildlife Education Center’s Halloween Walk with the Animals in Frankfort from 1 – 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30. Admission to this kid-safe, trick-or-treat event is $5 per person.
    The event is most appropriate for kids under the age of 11 and their parents. Little trick-or-treaters are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes.

  • COLUMN: Fall hunting season is...

    Fall colors, gotta love’em. Even with the drought we have going on, God still gives us a show for free. It never ceases to amaze me how the seasons come and go and how each one of them has its own unique characteristics and fan base. I’m partial to fall for obvious reasons like most hunting seasons are at their peak and the temperatures allow me to open up the windows and turn down the electric company’s little money maker.

  • Lady Bearcats luck runs out in...

    VERSAILLES – One of the oldest truisms in sport, any sport, is that championship teams are good and they are lucky.

    Anderson County girls' soccer was mighty good in 2010, as the 16-6-2 record against a rugged schedule attests. Coach Jason Earnest dubbed this year's team the most talented, top to bottom, that he has ever had. As many as five or six current seniors could be playing collegiate soccer next year.

  • 'No words can take the...

    Throughout the 2010 season, Anderson County had risen to the occasion.

    Three times the Bearcats had played ranked teams and won. They had received consideration for a Top 25 ranking, nearly cracking that elite group in the final statewide poll of the season.

    They would trade all of it for two more goals last Thursday night.

  • Collins eliminates Anderson...

    NEW CASTLE -- There were few tears after Collins ended Anderson County's volleyball season last Tuesday night. The Titans might have been the best team the Lady Bearcats had faced all year so their 25-11, 25-16  win in the 30th District Tournament at Henry County High School was not unexpected.

    If anything, the contest underscored what most observers had known for some time: The Lady Bearcats that lost 11 of their last 13 matches were not the same group that had been picked in the top five of the Eighth Region before the season started.

  • COLUMN: You probably won't...

    You would not believe what I saw at South Oldham High School last Friday night.

    I was standing near the football field when, all of a sudden, a UFO came swooping down out of the sky. It started balancing on the goalposts and flashing red and green and blue and silver lights before the bottom opened and SpongeBob Squarepants came sliding down a chute. He went to one side of the field, where he abducted Elvis.

    Before he left, ole Spongebob said he was looking for directions to Rupp Arena, because he was going to crash a party there too.

    Really. 

  • Woodford County works overtime...

    OWENTON – Never let anyone tell you that a district championship match is meaningless. Especially when Anderson County and Woodford County get together to decide girls' soccer supremacy in the 25th District.

    It is true that both had already qualified for the 13th Region tournament earlier in the week. And it is also true that most observers have felt all season long that the teams at the top of the region, including the old border rivals, are very even, underscored by when the teams battled to a 0-0 tie back in early September.

    But meaningless?

  • Tough night for Anderson soccer

    UPDATED, Saturday, Oct. 16, 5:15 p.m. 

    Thursday was a tough night for Anderson County soccer as both the Lady Bearcats and Bearcats tasted defeat in district tournament play.

    The Anderson girls saw their reign as 25th District champions come to an end as Woodford County's Taylor Kelly arced a shot in from 40 yards with five minutes to go in the second overtime period giving Woodford a 2-1 win in the championship game at Owen County.
