    Fisheries crews with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources routinely see a variety of trophy smallmouth bass, muskellunge, catfish and walleye while doing their sampling studies.

    Now the department is unveiling those stream secrets through a new information section on the department’s website, according to a news release.

    We’re talking about the Anderson County fastpitch softball team, of course.

    It is the kind of of thing you have to expect when any team, any sport, advances to the final four of the state tournament and could have won the whole shebang with a break here or there. Beyond that, anyone who remotely follows the game would know the slugger who set a new state record for home runs – Anderson’s Bailey Curry – just completed her sophomore season.
