  • Bearcats can clinch playoff home...

    The script is very clear for Anderson County Friday night: Win at Montgomery County and the Bearcats will be home for the first round of the state playoffs.

    It’s not 100 percent guaranteed but is about as close to being a sure thing as it can be. If the Bearcats regain their dominance of Montgomery, a team that had not beaten Anderson since 2001 until last season, the Bearcats will most likely be no worse than second place in Class 5A, District 6.

    Anderson rolled past Eighth Region rival Henry County, 5-0, to give the outgoing seniors something to remember in their final home game.

    “We went with all our seniors in and loaded them up front for scoring options,” Anderson coach Jason Earnest said.

    Anglers treasure the fall months in Kentucky.

    The shortening periods of daylight and the cooler, drier air bring welcome relief from summer and bring on the fall colors. It’s during this time of transition that some of the best fishing of the year can be had.

    For trout anglers, fall offers a smorgasbord of opportunities.

  • Elder bows out in first round of...

    Anderson County High School golfer Hayden Elder shot an uncharacteristic 12-over 84 in the opening round of the Leachman/KHSAA Boys State Golf Tournament Friday at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    Elder, a junior who had carded a 74 in the Region 4 Tournament at Maywood, did not survive the individual cut of 76.

    Cullan Brown, a junior from Lyon County, took the individual championship with a two-day total of 139 (66-73), while Louisville St. Xavier won the team title with a 606. St. X had shot par (288) as a team during the first round.
