  • Great start to turkey season

    Turkey season opened with a bang this season for several of the Lilly clan.

  • SOFTBALL: No. 13 Oldham shows it...

    Reality, wearing Oldham County softball uniforms, hit Anderson County quickly last Thursday.

    Just minutes after the Lady Bearcats had ridden Mackenzie Peavler’s first home run of the season for a 2-1 lead over 13th-ranked Oldham, the visitors sent eight batters to the plate, scoring three runs in the third inning. That 4-2 Oldham lead eventually turned into an 8-4 victory. A team that finished at 12-15 a year ago has suddenly become one of the state’s best, winning its 17th in 18 games.

  • BASEBALL: Ailing Case makes...

    TAYLORSVILLE – Landon Case was a bit under the weather but he made Spencer County’s bats sick.

    The junior right-hander went the distance, scattering five hits in a 6-2 win last Tuesday. The victory guaranteed Anderson can do no worse than a two-seed in the 30th District Tournament next month. Case dominated Spencer, getting his fourth win in five decisions.

    And he was not 100 percent.

    “I started feeling bad yesterday,” Case said of what was called a stomach virus.

  • Spring hunting, fishing prizes

    Several Anderson County residents have had big catches in the spring hunting and fishing seasons.

  • Kentucky All-Stars a matter of...

    On paper, the Kentucky All-Stars have about as much chance against their Indiana counterparts this summer as a Shetland pony in the Kentucky Derby.

  • COLUMN:What in the world are...

    Sometimes you just have to wonder WHAT are people really thinking?


    We had two such incidents in these parts last week that just made you scratch your head, then contemplate, then shake your head again.


    First, there was the latest round of talks about a possible renovation or replacement of Rupp Arena in Lexington.


    You have got to be kidding me.

  • Lady Rams in action

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg's softball team played Lakeside last Thursday.

  • TRACK: Bearcats can't get...


    Suffice it to say the Heart of the Bluegrass track meet was not a heart-warming experience for Anderson County on Saturday.

  • Young Lady Bearcats drop two...

    Anderson County softball might be trying to set a record for the youngest lineup ever in varsity softball.


    No official records are really kept but one would be hard pressed to find a high school varsity team starting a pair of eighth-graders and a sixth-grader. There are no seniors and only a pair of juniors on the roster.


    But somehow, Anderson is holding together against the perennially tough schedule Lady Bearcat coach Brian Glass puts together. Despite being only 7-8, Anderson is receiving votes for the state’s Top 25.

  • Wells to play for Hanover College

    Anderson County High School senior Neal Wells has accepted an offer to play football at Hanover College, located at Hanover, Ind.


    Wells made the decision official last Thursday.


    “I like the location and small classes,” said Wells, who expects to compete for playing time as a wide receiver and punter.


    “They have a tremendous football tradition,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said.


    Hanover, an NCAA Division III school, finished 7-3 last fall.
