    The first snippets of snow fell last week, making most people frown, but put a smile on the faces of Kentucky waterfowl hunters. The cold weather the week before the waterfowl season opener on Thanksgiving Day is a good sign.

  • Highlands ends Bearcat dream

    The tears flowed, streaking mud-stained faces.

    The emptiness Anderson County’s football team experienced was real. After 10 solid weeks of jubilation on Friday nights, this time there was the agony of coming so close to one of Kentucky’s elite programs only to realize close doesn’t count for anything once the playoffs commence.

  • Peach speaks from experience in...

    Mark Peach had been there and knew what to say Friday night. It didn’t make things easier.

    His Anderson County football team had just taken a 14-10 loss to Highlands in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs. It wasn’t really a surprise since Highlands has hardware from 23 state championships in its trophy case. Anderson County has made one appearance in a title game. Highlands was favored in all of the polls, ranked third or fourth in 5A in every poll. Unbeaten Anderson was several spots behind.

    To many observers, it looks like Anderson County gets a real reward in the state football playoffs Friday night.

    The sarcasm oozes from the statement.

    Anderson, one of seven teams in Kentucky to make it through the 2018 high school football season at 10-0, opens what it hopes to be a long Class 5A playoff run when the Bearcats host perennial power Highlands in the Region 3 semifinals Friday.

    Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
