  • Unplanned holiday reminds of Anderson’s diamond excellence

    It just seemed weird to spend time with my family on Monday.

    I mean real family time not just being in the same zip code for a while.

  • Bearcat season summarized in district loss at Collins

    SHELBYVILLE -- Anderson County’s baseball season that began with high hopes ended with a two-day summary of the frustration the Bearcats experienced all season in the 30th District Tournament at Collins High School last week.

    The scoreboard said Collins rolled to a 10-1 win in the semifinals of the district tournament, quickly ending Anderson’s season. In the Anderson dugout, though, it was a reminder of a season coming off a run to the regional championship game ending with a 7-24 record.

  • A Memorial Day to remember

    It was 1968, and Lawrenceburg’s Roy Toney was among the thousands of American soldiers fighting in the Tet Offensive during the war in Vietnam.

    Little did he know at the time — and wouldn’t find out until just recently — that one of his cousins was right there, fighting alongside him.

    “We had no idea,” said Toney, a native of Mississippi who had only seen his cousin, Larry Brown, a couple of times during his youth.
