  • COLUMN: Vision is needed in...

    One of the lasting lessons I learned as a kid was very simple: Whether you say you can or say you can’t, you are right.

    I can’t be sure where I heard that first. It’s just one of those pithy little statements that catches you off guard at first, but carries far more truth than most would think is possible in 12 words.

    Several years ago, long before The Anderson News moved from downtown Lawrenceburg, a visitor came by my office and left me with those same 12 words.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcats have...

    When trying to figure out the post-season prospects for Anderson County softball, one can safely say Anderson County has a chance.

    The Lady Bearcats have a chance to be playing in Owensboro at the state tournament. And they have a chance to be heading home for the season in the first district tournament game, a semi-final showdown with Collins.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats eying another...

    Handicapping the Eighth Region baseball race is easy in 2011.
    Just throw about 12 names in a hat an pick one.

    The hard part is getting the right one.

    That is how wide open the quest for the top of the region is this year after a decade of dominance by Anderson County and Shelby County, the schools that have combined for nine of the 11 regional titles since 2000.

  • Track team focuses on individual...

    To say Anderson County was short-handed last week is kind of like commenting that it has rained a little bit lately.

    Competing in the Central Kentucky Conference championships, a meet surpassed in importance only by this week’s regional, the Bearcats were without most of their junior and senior performers, many of whom were gone on school sponsored trips.

    “This last week was rough on the stat sheet with the senior and junior trips taking place the same weekend,” said Anderson coach Robert Meacham.

  • BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Bearcats slip...

    Anderson County scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth to earn one of its best wins of the season, 3-1 over Franklin County last Wednesday night.

    “It was just a better overall attitude and approach,” said Anderson coach L.W. Barnes. “As upset and let down as I have been over the previous four games, I was just as proud after that game.”

  • Lady Mustangs honor eighth-...

    The Anderson County Middle School girls’ soccer team celebrated its Eighth Grade Night last Thursday.

    They beat Owen County 4-1 to finish their season.

    Madeline Wilson scored twice while Billie Clark and Autumn Miller added goals for the Lady Mustangs. Kennedy Smith and Hannah Drury shared keeper duties for Anderson.

    “This group of eighth-graders will be a hard group of girls to replace,” said coach Daniel Rogers.
