  • Conway, Satterly say safety is...

    John Wayne Conway never played football at Western High School. There never were enough numbers for the Eagles to field a team.

    But the Anderson County Judge-Executive has been a lifelong fan of the game. He was stunned when future NFL Hall of Famer Junior Seau took his own life in May. He'd read many of the stories about former NFL players dealing with problems presumably caused by concussions many years earlier.

    He had become aware that some former pros were steering their children away from the game.

  • BASEBALL: Senior League All-...

    The Anderson County Senior League All-Stars took their first district baseball championship, beating the Richmond All-Stars in the championship game Monday night at Richmond.

    The Senior League is a part of Little League International.

    Anderson advances to the state tournament, to be held at Oldham County High School in Buckner. The local team will be playing the winner of South Oldham and Ashland National on Sunday, July 22 at 5:30 p.m.

    More details will be posted online when they become available.

  • BASKETBALL: Smith plays in East-...

    Anderson County's Jay Smith scored 6 points and had 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals for the East team in the Kentucky High School Coaches' Association Junior All-Star game Saturday at Louisville's St. Xavier High School.

    However, Smith's team dropped a 122-121 decision when Bullitt East's Trey Rakes sank a 15-foot jumper as time expired.

  • Football parents asked to meet...

    For many firearms deer hunters in Kentucky, the tool of choice is the bolt-action centerfire rifle.
    With a little gunsmithing work and the right ammunition along with pre-season shooting practice, deer hunters will be ready to close the deal when a shooter buck walks into range this November.
    The first step is to find a competent gunsmith who can accomplish three procedures: adjusting the trigger pull, free-floating the rifle’s barrel and bedding its action.

  • Robinson-Catlett tandem wins...

    The team of Robby Robinson and Carol Catlett has been very successful in recent couples’ night golf competitions at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.
    Last week, the tandem won for the second time in recent weeks, winning a two-person, nine-hole scramble and beating Rick and Carolee Hawkins in a playoff hole.
    On June 22, the team of Robinson and Catlett took first place in the two-person scramble with Shawn and Julie Black taking second place.
    Last week, the three-person team of Mark Lilly, Colin Cox and Danny Vernon won in the men’s league play.

  • KHSAA trying to educate about...

    Nearly anyone who has attended even a few football games has experienced that scary moment when two players collide full speed and one does not get up or, at best, gets up slowly and groggily.
    For years, fans and media passed it off as just a temporary problem with no long-term effects.
    While a knee or shoulder injury causes visible problems, a head injury or concussion was simply passed over.
    Research over the years has identified the dangers of concussions in many sports, prompting the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to act.

  • Football head injury scrutiny...

    Football has come a long way since the days of playing with no helmet.
    Next came the leather headgear, followed by molded plastic helmets with no facemask. Helmets with no internal padding – only a web of straps kept the helmet away from the head – finally gave way to padding, air suspension and the high-tech equipment worn today.
