    The calendar said June 1, but the cold northeast wind, chilly rain and leaden skies seemed more like a bad day on the opening weekend of the April Keeneland meet.

    June finally has arrived in Kentucky and water temperatures in lakes across the state inched their way up toward the high 70s.

  • Compete in Denmark Tourney
  • Title hopes end with walk-off...

    OWENSBORO – It is said that tears cleanse the soul, that they express what words cannot.

    Maybe that is why they were so profuse, so open, Saturday at Owensboro’s Jack Fisher Park.

    In all likelihood, those tears started streaming down the cheeks of the Anderson County Lady Bearcats before Danielle Walls’ home run ball came to earth.

  • Mitchell one of team’s most...

    The 160-mile drive did not deter Anderson County softball fans from descending on Owensboro last week for the state softball tournament.

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Anderson faithful travel well. Very well. They always have and this year’s state tournament was no exception.

    Anderson didn’t have the biggest group of supporters by any stretch — that honor appeared to belong to state champion McCracken County — but the Lady Bearcat contingent was easily in the top four or five teams on the support scale.
