  • Anderson tracksters deserve much...

    When you’ve been pushing out sports columns and news stories since Joe Hall was on the end of the Kentucky Wildcats’ bench, you’ve just about seen it all somewhere along the way.

    You even remember when the Cincinnati Reds were relevant and actually won baseball games. (I actually had a string of attending 17 straight games and 27 of 30 in Cincinnati where the Reds won. It’s been a while, obviously.)

  • Young track Cats building for...

    At Anderson County, almost everything is relative when measuring the success of the high school track and field program.

    On the one hand, the Track Cats face what has become an almost annual problem with numbers, or more spefically the lack of numbers, in a sport where high numbers of participation have a link to more success. “We have 27 kids total,” says Anderson coach Richard Shearer, who is in his first season at the helm.

  • Titans power to district win

    If the electric company ever experiences a power surge like the one on the Anderson County High School softball field last Wednesday, there would undoubtedly be a major blackout in the area.

    Collins earned a 15-10 win over Anderson on a day when the teams combined for 31 hits, including 11 -- ELEVEN -- home runs and nine doubles.

  • Shelby takes advantage of...

    Shelby County pitchers silenced Anderson County bats to sweep the 30th District baseball series last week. The Rockets took a 7-1 decision in Shelbyville on Tuesday then recorded a 5-1 decision the following night.

    The series had been pushed back a day because of inclement weather.

  • Time running out to apply for...

    Hunters interested in entering this year’s elk hunt drawing have until midnight April 30 to buy applications, according to a news release. Hunters can apply online at the department’s website, fw.ky.gov, the release said.

    Kentucky residents and non-residents are eligible to apply for four permit types but can only be drawn for one. Each application costs $10.

  • Deciphering the white bass runs...

    This spring seems like one long continuation of late winter. As soon as we get a warm day, the temperature plunges and we are back in February again. It even snowed on Monday of the third week of April.

    This up and down weather combined with cold rains has the spring fishing season behind by a few weeks. The spawning runs of white bass into the headwaters of reservoirs are scattershot so far this spring, with some movement followed by retreat.

  • First Gobbler
  • Little Leaguers ready to play...
  • COLUMN: Facing fiscal reality in...

    It’s time for a reality check when it comes to high school sports.

    We are talking a real reality check in a world where reality is far too often in short supply.

    In case you missed it, there was a little bit of action in Frankfort last week. A large number of teachers and other school personnel made their voices heard as the Kentucky legislature overrode Gov. Matt Bevin’s veto of the budget they passed earlier in the now-completed session.

  • Penny named to Kentucky All-Stars

    Cobe Penny is continuing a family tradition.

    The Anderson County High School senior Cobe Penny has been named to the Kentucky All-Star team for the annual summer series against the Indiana All-Stars.

    Penny was chosen from tryouts conducted by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches at Paul L. Dunbar High School in Lexington Saturday and Sunday. The team was announced Sunday night.

    Penny was also named to the Courier-Journal All-State second team last Friday. The team was selected in a vote of the state’s coaches.
