  • Bearcats earn huge win over...

    The joy of beating an old nemesis for the first time since 2006 was intense, but short-lived for the Anderson County boys' soccer.

    The 2-1 victory over Woodford County, the Bearcats' first over Woodford since 2006 and only the second in the last decade was unquestionably sweet. Fans sent phone messages and Facebook posts as soon as the final second ticked off the clock at the Anderson pitch Saturday night.

    BRANDENBURG -- Meade County capitalized in crucial Anderson County mistakes to record a 28-21 win in football action on Friday night.

  • November on Bearcat minds during...

    BRANDENBURG – Everything Anderson County football did on Aug. 27 was done with an eye on November.

    Everything from traveling to Meade County on the same chartered busses the Kentucky Wildcats often use down to noting what happened after the game had ended was pointing to November 5, when the state playoffs start, and beyond.

    That is why Anderson coach Mark Peach, as intense a competitor as has ever graced a sideline, could smile after Meade's 28-21 win and say, “We'll be fine.”

  • Crane making mark as local...

    It’s still hot but at least fall is coming. Of course with fall brings the opening of many different hunting seasons, cooling waters to fish in and leaves turning colors to enhance the scenery. Like I’ve written before, there’s just nothing like the sights, sounds and smells of being in the woods in the fall enjoying God’s creations to the fullest.

  • COLUMN: What to wear? It really...

    There are not many times when I am in a tizzy about what to wear. Usually it is pull a shirt out, hope the pants match and head out.

    But I will have to admit that I have put quite a bit of thought into what not to wear on more than one occasion.

    By now I am sure you have heard about Renee Gork, the radio host in Arkansas that apparently offended Bobby Petrino – really, now, isn't the list of those who have not gotten on his wrong side much shorter, anyway?

  • Bearcats take impressive win in...

    The seeds of a Anderson County's season-opening rout were sown long before the Bearcats ever started seriously talking about Garrard County's football team.

    A week earlier, Anderson had blown a commanding lead as Franklin County, a team that had won just one game last year, humbled the Bearcats in their final tune-up. Granted, that one was just a  scrimmage, but someone forgot to tell Bearcat coach Mark Peach.

    “He was not happy,” Anderson senior Steve Sims, a team captain, said of Peach.

  • Riley rules at High Point; Lady...

    Kaitlyn Riley, a freshman on the Anderson County golf team, turned in the biggest day of her high school career as she won the Ron Zavitz Memorial Tournament, held at High Point golf course near Nicholasville on Saturday.

    Riley carded a seven-over 78, one shot better than Boyle County's Rachel Pennington, to take individual honors.

    A second Anderson golfer, sophomore Anna Marie Hyatt, finished fourth with an 87 over the 18 holes.

  • Anderson faces 'colossal...

    If there was any doubt about the kind of high school football progam Meade County has, Anderson County players and fans only need to think back a year when the Green Wave visited Anderson.

    Suffice it to say that the nickname fit. While the Anderson County side was packed with red-clad fans, as usual, there was enough green across the field that if someone did not know better, he might have thought he had stumbled onto a Christmas decoration convention.
