  • Cat Madness is coming!

    Expectations are high for Anderson County basketball in 2016-17. The Bearcats are tabbed by many as the team to beat in the Eighth Region after a run to the regional championship game last March. Anderson boast arguably the best player in the region in junior Cobe Penny and another ranked among the region’s best in senior John Paul Garmon.

    A jump shot was kind of like a couple of sprays of WD-40 for Makenzie Cann last Thursday.

    Playing her first basketball game in almost two years, the University of Kentucky junior looked just a bit rusty when she first entered the lineup against Union University last Thursday night. With just over four minutes to play in the first quarter, Cann made her way to the scorer’s table at Memorial Coliseum and ran up and down the floor a few times,getting into the flow of things.

  • Shouse upbeat despite Wildcat...

    Anderson County High School graduate Will Shouse was upbeat even after watching his Asbury University team take a 156-63 drubbing at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats Sunday night in Rupp Arena.

    As expected, Kentucky did as it pleased against Asbury, an NAIA Division II school. Kentucky scored 88 points in the first half and turned the contest into a dunk fest.

    Shredded bark on saplings, fresh scrapes along old logging trails and trail camera snapshots of passing bucks are encouraging signs that deer activity is picking up across Kentucky and just in time.

    The statewide modern firearm deer season opens Nov. 12 this year. Arguably the most widely anticipated of the fall hunting opportunities, it’s structured to coincide with the peak of fall breeding, known as the rut.

    A Kentucky football coaching legend who led Anderson County High School during one of the best periods in its history is returning to the Bearcats.

    The Anderson News has confirmed that former Anderson County coach Sam Harp will be returning to the Bearcats as an assistant coach when the season ends for his current team.

    A Tennessee newspaper reported Saturday that Harp is returning to the Bearcats as an assistant coach.

  • The Cann-do attitude

    LEXINGTON – Makenzie Cann is ready.

    Ready to shoot 3-pointers. Ready to pass. Ready to rebound.
