    Anderson County's dream of earning a place among the state's best ended abruptly Friday afternoon when Green County upset the Lady Bearcats, 8-5, in the Worth/KHSAA State Softball Tournament in Owensboro.

  • May is a great time to catch...

    A day spent catching fish from the bank of a pond or lake will hook a novice angler and entertain the most experienced one.

    May traditionally offers good opportunities for anglers as fish move shallow to spawn - and into easy casting range.

  • Simon Kenton lighting zaps...

    NEW CASTLE, Ky. – Lightning finally struck in Henry County. Unfortunately for Anderson County, the bolt did not fall from the heavens.

    Tristen Marcum ripped a bases-loaded single in the ninth inning to drive in two runs and give Simon Kenton a 3-1 win over Anderson County in the Eighth Region championship game last Thursday.

    The contest was delayed twice by lightning in the distance, but Bryant Field was never seriously threatened with inclement weather while the teams were playing.
