  • Four jailed on meth, heroin charges

     A Lawrenceburg man and three others were busted last Monday on drug charges that include heroin, crystal methamphetamine and pot.

  • You just can’t forget the night the goal posts came down

    I was there the night the goal posts came down.

    We’re not talking that night when Tim Couch hit Craig Yeast to lift Kentucky past Alabama in overtime, although I was in what was then Commonwealth Stadium that night too.

    What I am talking about happened a week or two later in Dry Ridge, Ky. And if you were an Anderson County football fan who made that trip 21 years ago, you will never forget it.

    You can’t.

  • Inaugural Glen Drury Classic Nov. 10

    When Glen Drury stepped down as basketball coach at Anderson County High School last spring, he left more than a legacy of 537 wins.

    He left more than seven district championships and two Eighth Region crowns.

    He left a legacy in the minds of hundreds of young men and women who were involved in the Bearcat basketball program. It was a legacy of tough love and good times. It was basketball and life tied together.

  • Spencer makes most of opportunities, downs Bearcats

    TAYLORSVILLE -- Missed opportunities cost Anderson County dearly last Tuesday night as the Bearcats dropped a 3-1 decision at Spencer County in a boys’ 30th District soccer match in Taylorsville.

    “In life or in a soccer game, when you are given an opportunity, you have to make the most of it,” Anderson coach Jeff Pritchett.

    Spencer made the most of its opportunities to get a key district win. The Bears scored 38 seconds into the contest, then put the game way in the second half, capitalizing on a couple of Anderson mistakes.

  • Lady Bearcats hope seventh-place finish prepares for Eighth Region run

    Playing good competition during the regular season pays off when the postseason comes around. At least Anderson County is hoping for that result.

    The Lady Bearcats placed seventh out of eight teams in the rugged Spine Center Showcase, hosted by Boyle County, last week, but it was a time for growth, according to Coach Jason Earnest.

    His team rallied to defeat North Laurel, 5-2, in the seventh-place game Saturday morning. Junior Anna Foley scored four goals and delivered an assist as the Lady Bearcats erupted for four goals in the final half.

  • Lady Cat golfers end season, look to 2019

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team ended its regular season last week with mixed results.

    Thursday, the Lady Bearcats took a 167-207 defeat at Shelby County.

  • Collins downs Volley Cats

    Anderson County’s district momentum could not carry the Lady Bearcats in last Wednesday’s match against visiting Collins.

    A week earlier, Anderson might have gotten its most impressive victory of the season in dispatching 30th District foe Spencer County in straight sets. However, any uptick the Lady Bearcats earned that night was not enough last Wednesday as Collins defeated Anderson, 3-1, to take command of the district seeding race.

  • Thoughtful detail outweighs righteous soundbites

     I recently encountered an acquaintance on the street, and because we both had worked in the court system, I was interested to get his opinion on the current U. S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

  • Still plenty do as summer comes to close

     The leaves are about to show their colors. The Autumnal Equinox officially arrives this Saturday at 9:54 p.m. As the daylight grows shorter, the chlorophyll that makes the leaves stay green all summer is starting to lessen. This allows the true color of the leaves to come thru, reminding me of decorations on a Christmas tree. It’s a last hooray of color, before we roll into the dreaded winter blahs.

  • Here’s what you need to know about coming elections

     As we near the Nov. 6 general election, I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone of important dates and times. We have had several inquiries regarding registering to vote, making a party change and other election related questions.
