  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats sizzle nets, fizzle down stretch

    Even a night when Anderson County was burning the nets was not enough in a district matchup at Collins last Tuesday.

    It was a dagger through the heart of a story -- a hometown, feel good story that evolved into a sordid nightmare. And while no one can excuse the basketball legend's actions as Kentucky's Commissioner of Agriculture, the whole affair should serve to make us pause and look at ourselves and how we view those who are gifted at playing a game.

I am also very happy with Josh Lindsey. Josh joined our team at mid-season and has consistently dropped time in every event he has swum in.”
