    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.

  • 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.

  • Lady Bearcats rip Spencer in...

    Even with a new-look lineup, Anderson County let it be known last Thursday that the Lady Bearcats will be just fine.

    Using clutch hitting and a sharp pitching performance from junior Lexi Tinsley, Anderson romped past previously undefeated district rival Spencer County, 10-3, on the Lady Bearcats’ home diamond.

    “We are learning,” said Anderson’s first-year coach Jeff Hawkins, who got his first district win. “We are young, but they executed well on offense. We got some big hits with two outs and runners in scoring position.”
