  • Long archery season a good time...

    Would you believe that only 40 years ago there were only a few thousand whitetail deer in the state of Kentucky? State, not one county.  It is hard to believe with the number being in the hundreds of thousands across the Bluegrass today. The growth is truly a testament to the hard work of many to make such a growth in population occur.

    When Kentucky’s 2012-2013 deer season opens with the beginning of archery hunting Sat., Sept. 1, there will be plenty of reasons for hunters to be optimistic.

    Last deer season was arguably the state’s best ever. A record 68 bucks taken in Kentucky qualified for entry into the Boone & Crockett record books, a record for the state.

    Where I was born, where I was raised.
    Where I keep all my yesterdays. …

    Where I came back to settle down,
    It's where they'll put me in the ground:
    This is my town.

  • Vastly improved Shelby to test...

    Anderson County's football team was to have had a major test from Class 3A power Garrard County on Saturday, after press time, and some are thinking that things will not get any easier when the Bearcats travel to Shelby County this week.

    Kickoff is set for Friday, Aug. 31, at 7:30 p.m at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Shelby County? The team that has gone 3-18 over the last two years and the club Anderson routed, 58-20 a year ago?

    Yes, that Shelby County.

  • Lady Bearcats strike first in...

    There was little doubt things might eventually turn out this way for Anderson County and Collins soccer, but not many thought it would happen so quickly.

    Yet, Anderson's 2-0 win on its home field last Monday signaled the beginning of an emotional rivalry with its new 30th District rival. “The game was very physical, just like a rivalry game should be,” said Anderson coach Jason Earnest. “It got pretty chippy too, as both teams played like we are district rivals.”

  • Searching for the next level

    SHELBYVILLE – At times, Anderson County's quest for volleyball success might seem like a never-ending cycle.

    It seems to be one filled with slick spots just when things seem to be getting over the proverbial hump. It's in the history of the program and often rears its ugly head in key matches, like last Tuesday's at Collins, that seem to summarize the Lady Bearcats' climb to where they think they should be in the Eighth Region.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats get first win

    Anderson County defeated Garrard County, 24-16, in the Pigskin Classic at Danville Saturday. Sophomore quarterback Zack Carmichael completed 11 of 13 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted once.

    Carmichael was named Most Valuable Player as the Bearcats are now 1-1. See the full story in the Aug. 29 edition of The Anderson News. 

  • Club plans 3D archery shoot for...

    A 3D archery “fun shoot” is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25 at the Anderson County Sportsman’s Club, located on Old Joe Road near the Bluegrass Parkway.

    The shoot is from 8 a.m. to noon, and organizers said it will be a good way to tune up for the Sept. 1 deer season opener.

    Cost is $10 for adults $5 for those 11 to 15 and free for shooters 10 and under.

    Divisions include open, bow hunter and youth.

    Participants will be able to select from 30 3D targets, and can shoot for fun or score.
