  • Cann should play key role for...

    Remember those days when you could walk up to the ticket window at Memorial Coliseum and watch the University of Kentucky women’s basketball team play from no more than a few rows off the floor?

    That might be an exaggeration but not by much. Before Matthew Mitchell came, I’d been to games against Tennessee when I could have sworn there was more orange than blue in the house where Adolph Rupp once coached.

    And I can remember running a UK media release advertising an offer to purchase season tickets to women’s basketball for 20 bucks.

  • Lady Bearcats focus on win at...

    LEXINGTON – There is little argument against the idea that, when healthy and motivated, Anderson County is a heavy favorite to win the Eighth Region softball championship. It is also a given that the Lady Bearcats could be a threat to win the whole shebang when the 16 regional survivors meet in Owensboro the second weekend of June.


    The roots Connor Duncan wanted to grow with were roots he’d never seen or experienced.

    They were roots literally about halfway around the world and roots with no obvious manifestations in the Anderson County High School track star.

    Until now.

    Just look at his arm. His left arm, to be exact.

    Look at all of the ink on his left shoulder. On his bicep and tricep. All the way past his elbow to his forearm.

    Connor Duncan, the blue-eyed, blonde-haired hurdler, is in touch with his Samoan roots.

  • Bearcat tennis teams enter...

    The Anderson County High School tennis teams look to be on an uptick as they enter Region 8 play on Monday, May 9.

    The girls’ tournament gets underway at Western Hills High School while the boys will compete at Franklin County High. While weather could change the schedule, the tournaments are scheduled to be played at Franklin County from Tuesday through their completion.

  • Spencer sweeps season series

    Spencer County survived repeated Anderson County threats to post a 3-2 baseball win over the Bearcats Friday night in Taylorsville.

    The contest was the completion of a suspended game that had started three nights earlier. Anderson had taken a 2-0 lead in the top of the first when rain and lightning forced officials to stop play.

    When the teams got back together Friday, Spencer wasted no time tying things up on a two-run home run by Lucas Tackett off Anderson pitcher Luke Dowell.

  • ONLINE ONLY: Lady Bearcats roll...

    Eighth-ranked Anderson County delivered timely hitting and rode an impressive pitching performance from freshman Jenni Beasley to defeat Shelby County, 5-0, in softball action at the Shelby County Athletic Complex Monday evening.

    Anderson improved to 18-6 on the year while Shelby fell to 14-9. The game did not count in the 30th District seeding race.

    Anderson had defeated Shelby, 3-0, two weeks earlier in Lawrenceburg.

    Things have certainly changed since that first time I got a check for writing something for publication.

    Ronald Reagan was about to be sworn in for a second term. The Cincinnati Reds were on an uptick. College basketball was a place where guys usually played four years. They made shots that counted two points, regardless of where it was launched.
