  • Everything happens for a reason

    WILMORE -- Everything seems to happen for a reason.


    It can be something small and insignificant. Or it can be a life-altering tragedy. But everything happens for a reason and you will never be able to convince Will Shouse otherwise.

    He’s lived it. He continues to live with that knowledge and an unshakeable belief that God is in control.

    “It’s my testimony,” Shouse said last week.

  • Making a lasting difference

    It does not seem possible, but high school sports – fall variety – are almost on us again.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s mandated “dead period” ended at midnight Sunday night and by Monday morning, several local teams were already at work for the upcoming seasons.

    The truth is that most of those teams had been having some informal workouts before the dead period but for most kids, getting back into the training groove after a two-week layoff is not anything earth-shattering.

  • Fish and Wildlife Commission...

    The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission proposed several new fishing regulations during a special called meeting last week, according to a news release.

    The commission recommends all hunting, fishing and boating regulations for approval by the General Assembly and approves all expenditures by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. All recommendations must be approved by legislators before they become law.

    If approved by legislators, fisheries regulations proposed at the meeting would take effect March 1, 2018, the release said.

  • Fast-growing saugeye offer...

    By Kevin Kelly, Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    With every passing season, anglers are building their knowledge base about how to catch saugeye stocked in a handful of central and northern Kentucky lakes.

  • Sportsman’s Club to host archery...

    The Anderson County Sportsman’s Club will host the 22nd Annual Tim Farmer Classic archery shoot on Sunday, July 30, according to a news release.

    The festivities will begin at 8 a.m. at the club, located at 1070 Old Joe Road, Lawrenceburg.

    All archers, from National Archery in the Schools Program participants to professionals are welcome, according to the release.

    The shoot will include 30 targets with a bowhunter class, open class, kids class and more.

  • Tennis Anyone?

    Anderson County High School girls’ tennis players Kieran Birdwhistell and Kenzi Herndon were among several members of the Lady Bearcat team who took advantage of great weather Monday morning to get a work out in on the first day back after the dead period. Birdwhistell, a sophomore, and Herndon, a junior, were the top two singles players for the Lady Cats last spring.

  • Back to work
  • Crushing the Competition
  • Dead period an important two...

    I have often thought that in order to keep high school sports lively, they needed to be dead every now and then.

    At least, that was the idea behind the “dead period” mandated by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association that prep athletes are in the midst of right now. The 15-day period in which high school athletes can’t work out as a team began on June 25 and runs through Sunday, July 9.

  • Mudcats enjoying big return to...

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats’ baseball team is back in action in 2017. So far the team is showing exactly why it was created 16 years ago.

    The Mudcats are technically a “travel team” that plays against similar clubs in Kentucky and surrounding states. The Mudcats work on developing all parts of the game throughout the summer, closing out the season shortly before school is back in session in August.
