  • COLUMN: Anderson victory like...

    NICHOLASVILLE – This time, Anderson County's Band of Brothers took some real history and put it to use in a football game.

    And the way the Bearcats clinched a home-field advantage in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs could not have been more fitting.

    Anderson County put together a splendid performance at East Jessamine Friday night by doing what Easy Company did in World War II. The Bearcats took to the air.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Tates Creek...

    LEXINGTON – The emotions flowed and the tears were profuse.

    For Anderson County, a soccer season that saw the Lady Bearcats mesh and become a true team had ended last Wednesday. And it had ended in the most cruel of ways.

    Tates Creek's Abby Vanbussum got a penalty kick just out of the reach of Anderson goalie Emily Mager with 15:03 to play, giving the home-standing Lady Commodores the only score they needed for a 1-0 victory in the Region 13 Tournament semi-finals.

  • Fall brings back hunting and...

    Gotta love Fall in Kentucky. It’s here once again. There is one slightly disturbing aspect of this Fall arriving that has me thinking even more than usual.  

    As I get older it sure seems that the seasons, as well as time in general, just fly by. Add the fact that Hunter is a sophomore at the University of Kentucky and Suzanne is a junior at Anderson County High School and it really gets me to thinking, “Where has time gone?”  

  • Fishing good at McNeely Lake

    Jefferson County's McNeely Lake is a good destination for canoeists, kayakers and those in small boats because the use of gasoline-powered motors is prohibited. 
   

    Located in Okolona, a suburb about 15 miles south of downtown Louisville, the 51-acre, L-shaped impoundment is reached via the Beulah Church Road exit off the Gene Snyder Freeway. Turn right onto Cooper Chapel Road and follow the signs. The lake is located within the 746-acre McNeely Lake Park, operated by the Louisville Metro Parks system. 
   

  • Bearcats rout East Jessamine,...

    NICHOLASVILLE – Seth Carmichael can only hope his Saturday turned out somewhere in the neighborhood of his Friday went.

    About 12 hours before he was scheduled to take the ACT college placement test, Anderson County's senior quarterback tied his own school record by throwing six touchdown passes. On a night when East Jessamine dared Anderson to pass, Carmichael took the dare, completing 12 of 15 throws for 340 yards.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: What Anderson...

    There are many different scenarios surrounding the Class 5A, District 6 race, but for Anderson County, the road is clear: Win at East Jessamine and the Bearcats are the two-seed from the district. Lose and they will head to post-season as a three.  It is a huge difference as the two-seed gets a first round home game in the playoffs.

    Here are are the different scenarios for the playoffs.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Tates Creek...

    LEXINGTON – Tates Creek scored the only goal of the contest on a penalty kick with 15:03 to play, eliminating Anderson County, 1-0, in the Region 13 girls' soccer tournament Wednesday night.

    Tates Creek, playing on its home field, moves on to the regional championship game against Henry Clay on Thursday night. Henry Clay ousted Woodford County by an identical 1-0 score in the second semi-final.

  • Franklin torches Anderson for...

    Everything anyone wanted to know about Franklin County’s romp past Anderson County on Friday night could be found on the stat sheet.


    The story of Franklin’s 56-24 win for the Class 5A, District 6 championship was right there, shouting for all to take a look: Ryan Timmons, eight carries, 175 yards, three touchdowns. An average of 21.9 yards per carry.


    Not a bad night for the junior wide receiver who is considered one of the top talents in Kentucky.

  • COLUMN: Franklin speed makes...

    Notes written while juggling the remote over the weekend...

    You have to give Franklin County a lot of credit. The Flyers have as much speed as any team that has played at Anderson County in a long time and Ryan Timmons showed why he's considered one of the cream of the crop in the class of 2013.

    Suffice it to say, Timmons is a jet, one of the fastest I have ever seen play against Anderson County.

    The 56-24 decision emphatically gave Franklin the district championship that many were saying should just be mailed to Anderson County in the pre-season.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats looking for...

    Just like nearly everyone thought it would, Anderson County's football game at East Jessamine on Friday night will play a major role in the Kentucky post-season landscape.

    But unlike the pre-season publications, including The Anderson News, which saw this one as the showdown for the district championship, it will just be for second place in Class 5A, District 6. And that is almost as big as winning the title.
