  • Hoops hopefuls head to camp

    They may not be tall enough to make the NBA, but the campers at the Glen Drury Bearcat Basketball Camp have worked hard to improve their game and most importantly have fun.
    The 2013 Bearcat camp lasted four days, from June 3-6. Held in two locations, the camp included 120 students in grades three through nine at the high school and kindergarten through third at Saffell Street Elementary.
    Coaching the children were 60 staff members, 50 of which are high school students.

  • President’s Cup champions
  • Mudcats looking to learn roots...

    They have the ability to become champions. Now they have to learn how to earn the big trophies.
    That is how Central Kentucky Mudcat coach Chris Copenhaver sees his team as it embarks on the 2013 summer season. The Mudcats, a 16-and-under team made up of Anderson County High School players, were scheduled to open the season last week.

  • Family has tugging in their...

    There is no mud pit waiting for the loser.
    And it’s certainly not a tug-of-war that calls for putting the biggest, baddest and strongest dude at the anchor spot in the line.
    When the Kentucky Truck Tuggers get together, the equation is simple: Sheer power plus skilled drivers equaling utter craziness.
    “Sometimes we end up tied and we have to turn around and do it all over again,” grins Anderson County resident Eddie Wiley.

  • Sparrow named Bearcat MVP at...

    Shea Sparrow was named Most Valuable Player as the Anderson County High School baseball team closed out the 2013 season with the annual team awards banquet last Monday.
    Sparrow, a senior, was also named the recipient of the Turpin Leadership Award.
    Other award winners selected by the coaching staff were: Best Offense – Brandon Eliadis; Best Defense – Brice Stockton; Mr. Clutch – Eliadis; Most Improved – Keaton Walker and Lucas Durr; Spark Plug – Granville Hayes.

  • COLUMN: We want to share your...

    Cleaning out the mail box, I ran across some real dandies last week. They are the kind that make me want to go find my old Kris Kristofferson 8-track and sing along.
    “Why Me, Lord?”
    Really, when you are in this business you get all kinds. Many notes are from very nice people who say nice things about a certain article or our coverage in general. Sometimes, those notes come in when they are least expected but most needed.
    All I can say about those is a very heartfelt, “Thank you.”

  • OUTDOORS: Archery teams have big...

    The Anderson County archery teams had strong showings in the National Archery in the Schools Program national tournament, held May 10 in Louisville.

    Sixth-grader Brandon Aldridge earned the championship of the elementary competition, scoring 292 out of a possible 300. He was 26th overall out of nearly 9,500 archers from 40 states.

  • COLUMN: Hurting after a season...

    It took Brian Glass a bit longer than normal before he was ready to talk with the press last Tuesday night.

    The Anderson County softball coach generally goes over a few things with his team before heading straight to his dugout to chat for public consumption.

    But last Tuesday, after Oldham County had ended his team's dream of a state tournament trip, Glass told the Lady Bearcats he was proud of their efforts, both on the season and for the game, then headed to the team locker room with his coaching staff.
