  • Pleasant Hill fishing tournament was a great time of enjoying the outdoors

    By Jeff Lilly

    Spring is here and a lot sure goes on around the Lilly households much like most other homes I guess.

    Before you know it we’ll be wishing for those cooler days and nights once our hot and humid Kentucky summer rolls in here in a few weeks. Nothing lasts forever so let’s all enjoy the weather, good times with family and friends and all the great things and many blessings God has given us on this earth.

  • Anderson baseball wins big in varsity regional

    NEW CASTLE, Ky.  – Just call them the “Battlin' and Blazin' Bearcats.”

    Anderson County pitchers Conor Cotton and Josh Brown fought their way through a day when they did not have their best stuff while Bearcat runners repeatedly frustrated South Oldham to score a 7-3 win in the Eighth Region high school baseball tournament Monday at Henry County High School.

  • Records are shattered on track's big day

    LEXINGTON – It had been only a few moments since Tyson Yett's had completed his day's work when his grimace told what kind of day it had been.

    It had been painfully close.

    And it had been simply painful.

    Yett, an Anderson County High School senior, placed second in the triple jump, his signature event, and third in the high jump at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Class 3A state meet, held Saturday at the University of Kentucky.

  • No nonsense for Lady Bearcats in regional opener

    WARSAW, Ky. – Three batters into Monday's Eighth Region Softball Tournament, Brent Aldridge had seen enough of the nonsense.

    His heavily-favored Anderson County team, ranked among the 20 best high school teams in Kentucky, already trailed North Oldham in an elimination game at Gallatin County High School.

  • Thanks, Coach Hyatt!

    I hope I never got Bobby Hyatt in trouble.

    If you've been in the Lawrenceburg Walmart in the past few years, chances are you knew Mr. Hyatt from that perch just inside the right-side door.


    “How you doing today?”

    Or it might be one of a thousand other greetings. Regardless of the words, they were always accompanied by a huge smile.

    For me however, the topic was usually football. It might have been what was wrong with the Kentucky Wildcats or what was right with the Anderson County Bearcats.

  • Soon, cars will drive themselves…no, really they will

    Okay, I’ll admit I’m an ‘80s kid. I grew with movies such as “Robocop” and “Total Recall.”

    Do you remember in the movie “Total Recall,” where there was an automated taxi driver called “Johnny Cab” that would have entire conversations with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character?

    Well, that glimpse of the future might be on point now with the new Google driverless car.
