  • GOLF: Anderson golfers looking to take next step

     Over the last few years, Anderson County has been a slice here, a bogey there from advancing to the state high school golf tournament. It would be safe to say the Bearcats are looking for straighter drives and a much stronger short game to take that next step, a step Anderson has not taken since 1994.

  • Facts that non-believers don’t want to read

    I find the Bible to be so fascinating. Non-Christians or general non-believers often scoff at the Bible being accurate or true at all.
    It’s fascinating how anyone could believe such an amazing work of literature written over 2,000 years ago and compiled by numerous authors all inspired by God can be so easily dismissed.
    I am most surprised that some dismiss it when historically there is no doubt a man named Jesus lived and was crucified.
