  • Dynasty Delayed

    WARSAW -- There was no coronation. No celebration. Just stunned looks and tears.

    Anderson County's expected dynasty will have to wait another year or two.

    Walton-Verona's Courtney Sandlin saw to that when she sank a 10-foot jumper with 12 seconds to play giving her team a 40-39 win over defending regional titlist Anderson County in the girls' Eighth Region basketball tournament final at Gallatin County High School.

  • COLUMN: Clock error a tough call

    There are so many different hats to wear when writing local sports. Usually, they all fit together very nicely and all is well.

    Sports writers are fans. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Most of all they are fans of the games. If they were not, they would be writing about lesser things like gas prices, budget deficits and other things that are secondary to March Madness.

  • Mustangs celebrate football...

    The Anderson County Middle School Mustangs held their annual football banquet recently, celebrating a stellar 2010 season and two-year run as one of Kentucky's best middle school teams.
