  • Oh, Canada!

    When he was younger, George Cummins probably dreamed of one day hunting in the Canadian wilderness.

    Now, he’s considering going into business there.

    Cummins, owner of Salt River Outfitters in Lawrenceburg, is contemplating expanding his business into Saskatchewan, a prairie land loaded with lakes, rivers and loads of fish and wildlife.

  • Loyola’s run more than cool...

    Random thoughts while trying to stay warm and dry …

    One of the craziest things I have ever seen reported about college sports was that of Sister Jean’s press conference a the Final Four in San Antonio.

    Really. She had a press conference.

    On the day before the national semifinals, a 98-year-old nun fielded questions at one of the most attended media events of the entire NCAA Tournament, and you’ve got to admit her story of being the team chaplain was one of those cool stories that came along just when major college sports needed it.

  • Seeing Cann wear Blue and White...

    Bill Keightley, Mr. Wildcat himself, used to brag that alumni from little old Kavanaugh High School of Lawrenceburg had two jerseys hanging from the rafters at Rupp Arena.

    An Anderson County native, Mr. Wildcat always broke into that huge smile when he reminded visitors just how special the honor was for Keightley, the Kentucky Wildcats’ equipment manager for 46 years, and his cousin, Aggie Sale, the first All-American to play for Adolph Rupp in Lexington.

  • Big changes, same expectations...

    The word around softball circles is that Anderson County should be “down” in 2018, that the Lady Bearcats lost way too much to really be a factor in the race for the Eighth Region crown.

    That perception, however, comes from the magnitude of the changes in the Lady Bearcat lineup than the reality of the Anderson situation.

  • Cann opts to forgo senior season...

    University of Kentucky senior guard Makenzie Cann has elected to forgo her redshirt senior season and graduate this May with a bachelor’s degree in integrated strategic communication with a minor in psychology, according to a UK news release.
