    Coach pitch league teams played in the Anderson County Little League this summer.

  • OUTDOORS: Trail cam shows what...

    Hot, hot, hot! I know that anyone reading this didn’t need to be reminded of just how hot the weather has been here in Kentucky. The drought is really taking a toll on everything seems like.  The yards, gardens, trees and even the wildlife seem to be taking a pretty stressful hit when things stay so hot and dry for so long. We went almost a month at my place without a decent rain.  It does save gas on mowing but it sure makes the grass awfully crispy walking to check out my trail cams.

  • Little League and Senior League...

     

    The Anderson County Little League All-Stars will open play in the state tournament when they play Marion County on Saturday, July 21 at 6 p.m. All tournament games are being held at Stone Crest Field in Prestonsburg.

    The tournament is a pool play event with the top two teams from each pool advancing to the elimination tournament.

  • Trying to be the best in the...

    Three members of the Lawrenceburg Disc Golf Association are competing in the PDGA World Championship this week in Charlotte, N.C. From left are Michael Martin, Cannon Beasley and Jordan Spaulding. Spaulding is playing in the advanced division with over 300 disc golfers participating while Beasley and Martin will be playing against 33 other participants in the boys' 16-and-under division.

    Now wasn't that fun? Want to try it again sometime?

    You know, that little five-week playoff party that Anderson County had last year. It was a blast, even though the ending was not what most everyone around these parts would have hoped.

    But we were realists. Few gave Anderson County a chance to beat Bowling Green in the state Class 5A football championship game and the Purples showed why, rolling up a 55-3 win, the largest final game margin ever in Kentucky. Bowling Green really was that good.

  • BASEBALL: Anderson wins Little...

    HARRODSBURG – Even when Mercer County had briefly taken an early lead Monday night, there was never a hint of worry in the eyes of the Anderson County Little League All-Stars.

    They were joking and cutting up like 12-year-olds. And they displayed the confidence of the champion they became with a 14-3 mercy-rule win in the District 3 final at Anderson-Dean Park in Harrodsburg.

    It is Anderson's first district title in the 12-year-old division and is the first step toward advancing to the Little League World Series.

  • Proper technique, equipment...

    Nearly everyone that has ever put on shoulder pads and a football helmet remembers the cardinal rule of tackling: Keep your head up.

    While the details of the technique have changed, the long-held belief of not initiating contact with the head is still the basis for avoiding head injuries in tackling.

    “We teach the kids not to lead with the head,” Anderson County High School football coach Mark Peach says. “We teach to tackle with your eyes on the football and do not lead with your head.”

    Boys' soccer team to hold signups and tryouts

    Any high school or middle school boys (grades 7 and 8 only) interested in playing soccer for the Anderson County High School teams, need to meet at the school soccer field behind the Freshman Wing on Monday, July 23 for a practice session from 5 – 7 p.m. New coach Mike Brody will follow the session with a short parent meeting for new players. Boys in grades 9-12 can play at any level of the high school program but middle schoolers cannot play above the junior varsity level.

  • 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.
