  • FOOTBALL: Cox follows lifelong dream, commits to UK

    Ross Cox has rushed the field many times at Commonwealth Stadium. If everything goes as planned, he won't have to do that again over the next four or five years.

    He plans on already being there if Kentucky records some big football victories.

    Cox, an Anderson County High School senior, publicly announced last Thursday what had long been speculated that he was going to walk on to play football at the University of Kentucky.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Stingy Bearcats limit Owen star in victory

    There is good defense, then there is just downright stinginess.

    Anderson County was mighty happy after having a first half when the Bearcats became first-class tightwads last Thursday. Anderson built a 29-16 halftime lead on the way to a 67-55 win over Owen County.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats blitz Collins

    For a good portion of Anderson County's 59-25 win over Collins, the only question was whether the visiting Titans would actually score in the second half.

    That is how dominating Anderson was in a 30th District girls' basketball game last Wednesday.

    And the Lady Bearcats really did not play all that well for much of the contest. Anderson gradually pulled away from the over-matched Titans, then exploded in the second half for their 35th straight win in district play.

  • Girls' basketball: Dirty-work defense cleans up against Franklin

    There were undoubtedly many who made it to Anderson County's Top 10 showdown with Franklin County last Tuesday who are not regulars at girls' high school basketball games.

    With the home side of the stands having only a few empty seats, it was undoubtedly the largest crowd of the season to see the Lady Bearcats and was one of the largest gatherings ever at Anderson for a regular-season girls' basketball game that was not part of a double-header with the boys.

  • Humanities Council to feature World War II history event Thursday

    The Anderson County Humanities Council, with local sponsorship by the Anderson County Historical Society, will be presenting a freee 'Kentucky in World War II' program on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Anderson County Senior Citizen Center, according to a release. 

    The program will provide community residents with an opportunity to spend some quality time with James Klotter, Kentucky historian and professor of history for Georgetown College.
