  • ‘Deplorable’ comment fueled...

    Caution: You might find the next few hundred words deplorable.

    Not that I am trying to get one last needle at Hillary Clinton after the election. We got in enough of those to go around from the end of the Democratic National Convention up through Tuesday when Donald Trump did what few believed possible.

  • Schoolhouse lives to fight...

    The old Glensboro school rotting in the high school’s front yard was given a stay of execution when the Anderson County Board of Education opted to continue looking for a buyer rather than having it torn down.

    Superintendent Sheila Mitchell told board members at their meeting Monday night that despite extending the bidding process for 60 days to find a possible buyer, no one had submitted a bid.

    “The deadline was Friday at noon,” said Mitchell, who has been working for the past year to find a buyer for the aging but historic structure.

  • Lady Cat golfers celebrate season

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team celebrated the 2016 season with the annual team awards banquet held Sunday at the home of team parents Joe and Tamara Smith.

    Seniors Cheyenne Searcy and Amy Kate Smith received the Dependability Award based on their attendance during the season. Neither player missed a match or tournament all season, according to Coach Robert Hanks.

  • Taking on the state

    Two Anderson County runners competed in the state high school cross country meet at the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday.

    Anderson Abram Gettlefinger ran in the boys’ race, covering the 5K course in 18:28.80 for 173rd place of approximately 250 runners. He was just under three minutes behind the winner, Yared Nuguse of Dupont Manual and more than three minutes ahead of the last runner to complete the course.

  • Wildland fires, dry conditions...

    More than 300,000 Kentucky hunters preparing for this weekend’s modern gun deer season opener should be aware there are at least 22 wildland fires burning, many in southeast Kentucky, as drought conditions persist across the state. About 14,000 acres have burned in the Commonwealth since Oct. 29.

    Gov. Matt Bevin declared a statewide emergency last week and urged all citizens to refrain from outdoor burning and use extreme caution during outdoor activities.

  • Bullitt Central advances past...

    The high school football season came to an end for Anderson County Friday night when Bullitt Central claimed a 31-24 overtime win in the opening round of the Class 5A playoffs at Bob Ware Field.

    Bullitt Central scored on the second play of overtime as Davin Gray went 12 yards on an end around to put the Cougars in front in the overtime.

  • Mistakes doom Bearcats at Collins

    SHELBYVILLE – When seeing the final count of Collins’ 41-21 win over Anderson County Friday night, it would be hard to fathom that at halftime, it was a 10-7 football game.

  • ‘100 percent in awe’

    It’s doubtful that Will Shouse thought he would ever be sitting in one of the best seats in the house to see the Kentucky Wildcats play basketball in Rupp Arena.

    “I’m a huge UK fan,” Shouse says. “I am very supportive of (Coach John Calipari) and his methods.”

    Sunday night, Shouse won’t have a seat near the floor. He’ll be on the floor as the Wildcats host Asbury University in their final tune-up for the regular season.

  • UK Women single game, NCAA...

    The University of Kentucky women’s basketball team will play an 18-game home schedule this season and although season tickets are still available, fans can purchase single-game tickets through ticketmaster.com.

    Although lower level chairbacks are sold out again this season, upper level chairback, lower level bleachers and general admission upper level bleachers are all available for $65 per seat. Purchasing season tickets offers the best option and price savings for fans.

  • Back by popular demand: Bearcat...

    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.

    Veteran coach Glen Drury, who won his 500th career game last year, and Bearcat fans are itching for a Sweet 16 trip in March.

    The Lady Bearcats are also considered one of the top teams in the Eighth.

    You can get a glimpse of the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats at Cat Madness on Nov. 19.
