  • Hard work took DeLong past good...

    At the time, the words stung. More than a decade later, they might be the most important ones Kyle DeLong heard during his baseball career.

    “You're not good enough.”

    DeLong still remembers the words, even though his playing career ended over a year ago.

    “I really don't remember who told me that but I was wanting to pitch and he told me I wasn't good enough,” DeLong smiles. “When that happened was when I started working my tail off. I realized it was on me if I wanted to pitch.”

    Water temperatures are climbing into the upper 70s, sending channel catfish to rocky banks in reservoirs to spawn. June is one of the most productive months to fish for them.

  • Summer is good time for learning...

    By Jeff Lilly, outdoors columnist

    Remember how this past winter just seemed to keep hanging on like a dog to a bone? Well, summer and 90-degree temps have made it to the Bluegrass State. Now we get to go from wishing it would warm up a couple months ago to wishing it would cool down a little. Just remember, it’s Kentucky so hang around a day or two and the weather will change.

  • Anderson duo plays well, but...

    LEXINGTON, Ky. – Makenzie Cann's eyes lit up. So did Eriel McKee's.

    And certainly every Anderson County girls' basketball fan watching was thinking, “We have seen this before.”

    Cann saw her Kentucky All-Star teammate McKee going back-door to the basket. Cann threaded the Indiana defense with a bounce pass that McKee took in stride before laying laying the ball in during Friday's Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Classic at Transylvania University's Beck Center.

  • Attendance figures for once-...

    It is not easy watching something that was once so grand and lively die a very slow death.

    But that might be the case for the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Classic.

    This once-grand series that has showcased the likes of Darrell Griffith and Kyle Macy on the boys' side and Lisa Harrison and Skylar Diggins in the girls' half has fallen on hard times in recent years, especially on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River.

  • Unexpected path gives Gillis joy

    Bad ankles only meant a good path for Taylor Gillis.

    Now graduated from the University of the Cumberlands, the Anderson County native can honestly look back at her eight-year, and counting, career on the golf course and wonder “What if?”

    What if some ankle problems had not developed while Gillis was the first one off the bench for a powerful basketball team at Anderson County Middle School?

    What if a former star basketball player had not seen her at church one Sunday moring and invited her to golf tryouts?
