    It’s easy to overlook the little blessings that shape our lives every day. Most of us are thankful for our families, our jobs and our friends. We are thankful for the material blessings we enjoy and we use Thanksgiving as a time to remind ourselves of those obvious blessings.

    But often we have so many more blessings we might take for granted or not even recognize. As someone who has worked in journalism for nearly 30 years, I have learned the sports world offers more than its share.

    Here are four of which I am most thankful.


    LEXINGTON – Eriel McKee clapped for her teammates. She studied the action unfolding before her on the Memorial Coliseum floor.

    She was even sharing a laugh with one of her coaches during the pre-game warmups.

    But sitting on the bench was tearing at her championship heart last Wednesday.

    A concussion, suffered in the season-opener, kept McKee out of the lineup when Morehead State took on the Kentucky Wildcats in women’s college basketball action.

  • Anderson athletes named all Mid-...

    Two Anderson County residents and graduates of Anderson County High School have been named to the Mid-South Conference all-conference team announced last Wednesday.

    Kicker Joe Rose, a freshman at the University of the Cumberlands, was named second team All-MSC East, while quarterback Jacob Russell, a Campbellsville University senior, was named second team All-MSC West.

    Rose made 4-of-9 field goals with a long kick of 40 yards, and connected on 29-of-33 extra points for the Patriots, who finished their season at 3-7-0.

    The holiday commercials already swamping our collective brains along with winds straight from the North Pole remind us that short-sleeve weather is now months away. Winter is here.

    Waterfowl hunters don’t see these developments as bad news. They are getting their bags of decoys out of storage, cleaning and oiling shotguns and practicing their calling. Waterfowl season, for both ducks and geese, opens Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.

  • Bearcats to open hoops season...

    Anderson County opens the boys’ basketball season with a mystery team on Monday, Dec. 1.

    The Bearcats host Garrard County, a team that Anderson coach Glen Drury says he knew very little about at press time.

    “They have some players back,” he said. “That’s about all I know about them.”

    Drury said the Lions were scheduled to scrimmage on Nov. 22 and Nov. 28.

  • Reeling in the Cure for...
