  • Spring is (hopefully) here! Good fishing awaits at Taylorsville, Beaver Lake

    Happy spring, I think … maybe … hopefully!

    You just can’t be sure around these parts anymore as to whether or not spring is really here to stay or continues to tease.

  • Stung by last year's loss, Lady Bearcats shooting for state

    All anyone needs to know about why Anderson County's girls are picked as the team to beat by the Eighth Region softball coaches was on display two weeks ago in Diddle Arena.

    About 30 minutes after Anderson had been eliminated from the Sweet 16, the Lady Bearcats emerged from their locker room. Freshman Bailey Curry and sophomore Mia Aldridge were still crying and did not mind anyone seeing them in that condition.

  • Tilling garden now gives head start to garden

    I know it’s March. Tournament basketball is on TV. So, where is that spring weather?

    Tomorrow is officially the first day of spring, and I believe we are all looking forward to a little more warmth.  But the “old man” just doesn’t seem to want to go. On the bright side, the Earth is shifting, so warmth will eventually get here. When the mercury does rise to the upper 90s and people start complaining, I’m going to speak two words to them.
