  • Franklin fantastic in home field...

    No one was going to rain on Anderson County’s Senior Night.

    Not Mother Nature, who tried her best, and certainly not North Oldham.

    Anderson rolled to a 49-7 win as Blake Franklin ran for a career-best 246 yards and three touchdowns in his final game on Bob Ware Field. Another senior, Tyler Peters, hauled in a touchdown pass as the Bearcats piled up 575 yards of offense. Austin Watts, Stan Crawford, R.J. Boies and Brett Peach were part of a defense that limited North Oldham to 72 yards.

The state meet will be held Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Pierce and senior Caleb Gettlefinger were named to second team all-region, as well.

  • Rumor not correct, but points to...

    The news came as a bit of a surprise but wasn’t totally unexpected. Thankfully the “news” going around Anderson County was, in reality, only a rumor.

  • Lady Mustangs advance to state...

    The Anderson County Middle School girls’ basketball team completed a season to remember Sunday afternoon in the state middle school basketball tournament, held at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    The Mustang varsity advanced to the state semifinals before falling, 43-41, to Robert Campbell Middle School, a feeder to George Rogers Clark High School. The loss ended the Lady Mustangs’ season at 23-3 and is believed to be only the second time Anderson has advanced to the Final Four.

    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will conduct its fall public auction of surplus and confiscated items Oct. 30 according to a news release. The auction will take place at department headquarters in Frankfort.

    Surplus auction items include boats, Yamaha and Evinrude boat motors, four-wheel-drive Chevy, Ford, Jeep and Dodge trucks, office equipment, Polaris and Bombardier ATVs, pond aerators and more. Bidding on surplus items is open to everyone.

  • Madison Southern ends Bearcat...

    BEREA – All season long, Andeson County had known that Madison Southern would be the best football team it would see. The Bearcats also knew that Carter Smith would be the best player to line up across from them during the 2017 regular season.

    It took all of 21 seconds for everyone watching Friday’s Class 5A, District 6 matchup to be reminded why.

  • Bearcat band marching for...

    It is just two more steps to the realizing the dream for the Anderson County High School Marching Band.

    The Marching Bearcats placed second in the Kentucky Music Educators Association quarterfinal competition, held at Madison Southern High School Saturday. Anderson placed .20 of a point behind perennially strong Grant County in the quarterfinal, commonly referred to as the regional meet.

  • Cats must win at Madison...

    It is a bit ironic to look back on the statewide football realignment that took effect in 2015.

    At the time, it was common to believe, based on recent history, that Anderson County would usually be the team to beat in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association's revamped district.
