  • Bearcats have busy weekend

    Anderson County’s boys’ basketball team should have a strong test Friday night when the Bearcats travel to longtime rival Mercer County.

    While Anderson would be considered a solid favorite over the Titans, this is one of those series where little matters before the game is played.


    LEXINGTON – It was supposed to be a Black-out with t-shirts, jerseys and all the trappings.

    Instead, it was a gut-out as the Anderson County Middle School girls' basketball team earned the state championship with a 34-26 win over Whitley County at Rupp Arena on Friday afternoon.

    Anderson overcame adversity – some perceived, some real – to overcome the win Anderson County's first state scholastic basketball state title at any level.

  • COLUMN: Please, no more Rocky...

    LEXINGTON – I have gotten to the point that I wish someone could take a big orange and stuff it in every horn when the Tennessee band starts playing Rocky Top.

    Oh Rocky Top, you'll always be

    As I walked out of Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday night, the Volunteer band kept playing louder and louder. And I kept getting sicker and sicker at what I had just seen happen just a few feet in front of me.
