  • Christian Academy makes winning...

    A major tip of the hat needs to go to Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg its attempt to preserve history and acknowledge its tie to Anderson County’s past.

    CAL purchased its current North Main Street facility in 2012 and has been cognizant of the importance of that building ever since. Originally built as Anderson High School in 1950, the building housed Anderson Junior High/Anderson County Middle School and the Early Childhood Center before those schools relocated.

  • Young Lady Bearcat golfers take...

    The paradoxes surrounding the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team aren’t difficult to understand but turning them into a big finish in tournament play might be as hard as sinking a 40-foot putt.

    It can be done, but won’t be easy.

    On one hand, eight girls have been working the Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course in preparation for the Lady Bearcat season, which opens Thursday at Boyle County. It’s the largest number of girls to start the season under the guidance of Coach Robert Hanks, now in his fifth season.

    Ever since Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg acquired its current facility in 2012, the school has made an effort to remember the building’s historic ties to Lawrenceburg and Anderson County.

    Located on North Main Street, the building was originally erected to house Anderson High School, which was formed as a consolidation of Kavanaugh and Lawrenceburg high schools in 1949. After the current Anderson County High School opened in 1967, the building housed Anderson Junior High, which was later renamed Anderson County Middle School, and the Early Childhood Center.

  • Bearcats excited as season...

    Something was just different when I stopped by to watch a little of the Anderson County Bearcats’ football practice Monday morning.

    By the time I got to the field, practice was almost over, but the Bearcats were working on some line techniques, then Bearcat coach Mark Peach got the team together to go over some final things before dismissal. He said a few words, blew his whistle and the team clapped in unison. It was the same as always.

    Those of us who wade rocky streams for smallmouth or tailwaters for trout sometimes bite off more than we can chew.
