    Competing against some of the state's perennial powers at the 5-Star General and Taylor County invitationals, the Bearcats placed high in tournaments that drew close to 20 teams. Most importantly for Coach Jim Beward, the Bearcats found they belong.

    One of the most successful high school softball coaches in Kentucky is apparently out of a job coaching the game he loves.

    Brian Glass, who has led Anderson County to two Eighth Region championships and six 30th District titles since 2001, recently learned that he would have to step down from his coaching job after his older brother, Chris Glass, was hired as the school's interim principal for the upcoming academic year.

    Glass learned the news after his brother, Chris Glass, was named the schools' interim principal.

    I have not seen Brian Glass since the ruling came down. We've just communicated in a few e-mails or text messages back and fourth.

    A man in Kentucky sure is lucky

    To lie down in Bowling Green.

    If Anderson County sports fans have their way, they will be lying down in Bowling Green quite a bit over the upcoming school year. Maybe as much as The Everly Brothers.

    And that's a good thing.

    For anyone under the age of 45, Phil and Don Everly were 50's and early 60's rockers from western Kentucky. Their last hit single was a song about what is now the third largest city in Kentucky.
