  • Diamond or diploma?

    Imagine having to decide between two once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

    Two of them.

    Make that two once-in-a-lifetime events going on at the same time.

    It is a choice facing Molly Burkhead and Madison Brummett Thursday night. They are the only seniors on the Anderson County High School softball team, which is scheduled to play its first round game at the state tournament at 6 p.m. in Owensboro.

  • ONLINE ONLY: Late rally sends...

    Anderson County erupted for four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning on its way to a 5-1 win over Carroll County in the Eighth Region Baseball Tournament semifinals, held at Henry County High School Wednesday of last week.

    The Bearcats send nine batters to the plate as they finally got to Carroll County pitcher Zakk Adams, who had limited the Bearcats to a run and one hit through five innings.

  • Simon Kenton ends Bearcat...

    Simon Kenton's Tristen Marcum smacked a bases-loaded single to propel the Pioneers to a 3-1 win over Anderson County in the ninth inning of the Eighth Region championship game Thursday night at Henry County High School.

    The Anderson offense could not solve Simon Kenton ace Sean Lawrence, who struck out 15 Bearcats. Anderson did have the winning run at the plate in the bottom of the inning but were unable to get the big hit.

    Spring is here and a lot sure goes on around the Lilly households much like most other homes I guess.

    Before you know it we’ll be wishing for those cooler days and nights once our hot and humid Kentucky summer rolls in here in a few weeks. Nothing lasts forever so let’s all enjoy the weather, good times with family and friends and all the great things and many blessings God has given us on this earth.
