  • OUTDOORS: Skunks emerge from winter's thaw, can be beneficial

    It appears we may have survived a rather unusually long and cold winter here in the Bluegrass State. Hopefully the latest thawing out will last and bring us much greener days ahead as the temperatures rise and the sun shines.

    The warmer temperatures have certainly thawed out some of God’s smellier creatures. Anybody seen any skunks? I’ve had several folks asking me about the number of skunks they’ve seen killed on the roads lately.

  • Man leads city police on high-speed chase Tuesday following drug sting

    A 27-year-old Oldham County man led Lawrenceburg city police officers on a high-speed chase across three counties Tuesday afternoon after the man was allegedly found to be trafficking heroin in Anderson County.

    According to Det. Jeremy Cornish and Det. Mike Schell of the Lawrenceburg police department, city police were conducting a drug sting involving suspect Ahmad M. Ghazawi, 3500 West Highway 22, Crestwood, a little after 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

  • COLUMN: Time for a real sixth man

    Finally, it looks like people have begun to realize just what has been going on in Anderson County over the last few years.

    Last Thursday, when Anderson hosted Lafayette, the old high school gym was about 75 percent full. Nine days before, when Franklin County came to town, it was the same thing. Back on Feb. 7, when Louisville Mercy visited, it was another night when the filled seats far outnumbered those that were empty.

    It was for girls' basketball. And those crowds were a good thing.

  • WRESTLING: Mat Cats fall short of state medal rounds

    LEXINGTON – The end was bittersweet for the Anderson County High School wrestlers who made it to the state tournament last week.

    Just getting to the extravaganza, held at Alltech Arena on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park is quite an accomplishment for the individuals. Four Bearcat grapplers made it to the state but the results were not nearly what they had hoped for.

    Only two Bearcats scored with wins and no Anderson wrestler advanced to the medal round.

  • Follow the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats in the tournaments

    March does not officially begin until Saturday, but the Madness began Tuesday night in the 30th District Tournament at Shelby County High School.

    The Anderson County boys' basketball team was an underdog to Collins, but with strong play over the final weeks of the season, had given the indication the Bearcats might have been able to pull an upset. The winner of Tuesday's game advances to the 30th District championship game, set for Friday night, Feb. 28, at 7:45 p.m. at Shelby County.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats race past Greyhounds

    Anderson County recorded its fifth consecutive victory, winning at Paris, 60-47, last Tuesday.

    Anderson dominated from the outset and the game was not as close as the final score might indicate. Anderson was 31-15 at the half and extended that lead to 52-27 early in the fourth quarter.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Senior Lady Bearcats share one final home win

    To the outsider, it might have seemed like a strange move, but for Anderson County's girls' basketball team, it might have been the most fitting salute any coach could arrange for his team.

    With the Lady Bearcats' 63-54 win over highly-regarded Lafayette clearly in hand and just 13.2 seconds remaining, Kays inserted senior Jessica Rice into the lineup for sophomore Kaci Currens.
