  • Faced with skunk stink? Use this handy recipe

    The tree frogs are singing! Halleluiah! The vernal equinox arrives in just eight days. We’re up to almost 12 hours of daylight, with the sun coming up earlier by the minute, every day! I’m in the mood for some heat.
    I have never felt the cold so much in any winter. It’s like such a luxury to be warm with the heating bills taking away from the grocery bills. I even yearned for an electric blanket at one point! I wouldn’t have one, but I have a lovely memory of one.

    Rugged schedule prepared Lady Bearcats for regional repeat

    Throughout the basketball season, Anderson County girls' basketball coach Tony Kays repeatedly pointed to his team's schedule as one to prepare his team for the much-anticipated showdown with Simon Kenton on Sunday.

    Both teams were ranked in the state's Top 5 and most observers believed the teams would meet in the Eighth Region semi-finals or finals.

  • Lady Bearcats look to ride the Wave on way to state title

    Tony Kays was in his office early Monday morning. The celebration of a regional championship was joyful, but quick, ending just a few hours after the Anderson County girls' basketball team had beaten Simon Kenton for their second consecutive regional championship and third in five years.

    It was back to work Monday. The Lady Bearcats have unfinished business.

  • Reliving history!

    History nearly always has a way of repeating itself. It does not matter if it is in government, business or on the basketball court.

    That was apparent Sunday at Grant County High School.

    Welllllll, sort of.

    By now you know, or at least should know, that Anderson County's Eriel McKee ripped Simon Kenton for 32 points, 10 rebounds and a bunch of other stats that simply boggle the mind. The Lady Bearcats earned a relatively comfortable 49-38 win in a regional final that most observers had figured would go down to the wire.
