Today's Sports

  • Perfect weather conditions...

    The diminishing daylight hours, foggy mornings and slightly different angle of the daytime sun informs hunters the best time of year is upon us.

  • Interstate excellence
  • Choices have consequences

    I have never understood why some people do not want their kids to attend public schools, but want some of the benefits those schools offer.

    In case you missed it, Rep. Stan Lee (R-Lexington) announced last week that he had pre-filed legislation for the 2015 Kentucky General Assembly that, if passed, would allow home-schooled students to play sports for their local public school district.

    Here we go again.

  • Anderson golfers continue strong...

    The Anderson County High School boys’ golf team continued with its strong early-season with a seventh-place finish in the Flyer Classic at Juniper Hills Golf Coiurse in Frankfort, then scored an impressive conference win over Shelby County at Wild Turkey Trace last Thursday.

    The Shelby win was the Bearcats’ first in conference play this season.

    Against Shelby, the Bearcats scored a 151-166 win as Jordan Morgan shot a 36 to tie Shelby’s Dakota Baatz for the low score of the match. Baatz, however, earned medalist honors when Morgan bogeyed No. 9.

  • Reed rallies to take Wild Turkey...

    Morgan Reed carded 69s in both rounds to win the Championship Flight of Wild Turkey Trace 2014 club championship on Aug. 2-3. Reed was the only person entered who shot below par on both days of the tournament.

    Reed controlled the par 72 course and overcame Drew Hockensmith who had shot a five-under 67 the first day of the tournament but slipped to a 74 in the second round to finish with a two-day total of 141, three strokes behind Reed.

  • Lady Bearcat softball team hosts...

    The Anderson County High School Lady Bearcat softball team will be hosting a golf scramble on Sunday, Aug. 17, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    The cost of the scramble is $60 per person.

    Food and drinks will be provided and prizes will be awarded for closest-to-the-pin and longest drive. According to a news release, a hole-in-one on No. 8 wins a car.

    A silent auction will be conducted in conjunction with the scramble.

  • Getting Ready!
  • Choosing your first shotgun...

    By Lee McClellan

    My first shotgun was an old .410-gauge Mossberg with a bolt action and pistol grip that once belonged to my grandmother. A decent squirrel gun, yet working the bolt to get off three shots at incoming doves was nearly impossible for me when excited. Doves flying nearby had little to fear when I shouldered that old .410.

  • Practice safety at the shooting...

    The cooler temperatures and lower humidity that spread across Kentucky recently made it feel more like early fall than the dog days of summer.

    Fall hunting season seems closer with a crispness in the air. And in reality, it isn’t far off. Early fall squirrel season in Kentucky opens soon.

    Spending time at the shooting range now not only is fun but it’s also a surefire way to ensure you’ll be ready when it counts this fall.

  • Dedication of Kentucky River WMA...

    From staff reports

    The Kentucky River Wildlife Management Area’s newest tract will open in Henry County with a dedication Friday, Aug. 15, according to a news release.

    The department completed its 18-month-long effort to acquire the 926-acre Stephen Boone property on June 2 and made it a priority to get the new area ready for use by hunters and anglers in time for the Aug. 16 opening of squirrel season.
