  • Zone changes could affect deer...

    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife has officially issued its official hunting and trapping guide for the upcoming seasons. Not much has changed from last year’s regulations but always pick up a copy of the guide and read it before going afield.

  • Carbajal, Beasley team up again...

    When they walked off the soccer pitch for the last time together, little did Abril Carbajal and Sydney Beasley know the twists and turns of the sport would make them teammates again almost seven years later.

    And they certainly did not think about playing together in the United States Adult Soccer Association national championships.

  • North Laurel ends Anderson run...

    CORBIN – For more than two weeks, Anderson County's Little League tournament run had been an unlikely meshing of Cinderella with the firepower of the Nimitz Strike Force.

    Unfortunately for the local 11-year-old All-Stars, the dream of Anderson County's first state championship came crashing down in a Humpty Dumpty ending last Tuesday night. The North Laurel All-Stars took advantage of every Anderson mistake and shut down what had been a collection of potent bats for a 12-3 win in the state semi-finals at Strickland Field in Corbin's Rotary Park.

  • Anderson girls' soccer wins...

    The Anderson County High School girls' soccer team took the gold medal in the Bluegrass State Games competition, held Saturday and Sunday in Versailles.

    The Lady Bearcats, who are expected to be a regional contender in 2010, got some revenge by defeating perennial power South Oldham 2-1 in the championship game. South Oldham had defeated Anderson 3-1 on Saturday.

    Earlier in the tournament, Anderson had beaten Ryle, 1-0, and Highlands, 2-0, to advance to the final.

  • North Laurel shatters Anderson...

    CORBIN – Anderson County's dream of a state championship came crashing down Tuesday as the North Laurel All-Stars rolled to a 12-3 win in the semifinal round of the Little League state baseball tournament for 11-year-olds, held at Corbin Rotary Park.

    North Laurel batted around and took advantage of a pair of Anderson errors to score four times in the first inning, then made Anderson pay for another miscue in the second by scoring three more runs.

  • COLUMN: Enjoy moment with our 11s

    So many times during last basketball season, John Calipari admonished Kentucky Wildcat fans to enjoy the moment.

    Have fun. Savor the good times. Remember that we are talking about games.

    Games, in this instance, played by boys.

    Boys who, for the time being, dream of hitting the walk-off home run in the seventh game of the World Series. Boys whose voices have not deepened and who probably should not be throwing curve balls.

  • LITTLE LEAGUE: Anderson County...

    This was a long season where each player had to earn his spot on the roster based on his performance.

    The journey isn’t over yet, but the Anderson County 11-and-under All-Stars made history Saturday evening by winning their first Little League district championship.

    The all-stars will play in the state tournament beginning Saturday and say their goal isn’t just to be there, but to win it.

    Looking back on the games the team played to get to this point, one would have to say their district championship and state dreams began with a nightmare.

  • LITTLE LEAGUE: Next up? The...

    Gloves were tossed in the air effortlessly as players jumped around in celebration. The manager of the Anderson County 11-and-under All-Stars, Tommy Rice, just about lost his voice and couldn’t break the smile from his face. Anderson County just won the District III Little League championship for the first time.

    Bryndon Labhart and Daniel Whalen grabbed each end of the championship banner and the team raced around the diamond in a victory lap giving high fives to parents and fans waiting along the fence. They were champions at last.

  • COLUMN: Memories of 2002

    Has it been eight years?

    Eight years, 2,922 days (or something close to that) since an Anderson County Little League All-Star baseball team advanced to the state tournament?

    The 11-year-old team broke that drought when it won the District 3 title Saturday night with an offensive onslaught that made final scores more gridiron-esque than fitting the diamond. Anderson County routed West Lexington, 19-7, in the final at Legion Park.

  • Alves, Cricket chirping statewide

    Hannah Alves is going for the top in barrel racing.

    She is also third in youth Division 2 and eighth in open Division 4.
