  • Anderson tracksters deserve much better

    When you’ve been pushing out sports columns and news stories since Joe Hall was on the end of the Kentucky Wildcats’ bench, you’ve just about seen it all somewhere along the way.

    You even remember when the Cincinnati Reds were relevant and actually won baseball games. (I actually had a string of attending 17 straight games and 27 of 30 in Cincinnati where the Reds won. It’s been a while, obviously.)

  • Young track Cats building for future

    At Anderson County, almost everything is relative when measuring the success of the high school track and field program.

  • Deciphering the white bass runs this spring

    This spring seems like one long continuation of late winter. As soon as we get a warm day, the temperature plunges and we are back in February again. It even snowed on Monday of the third week of April.
