  • Squeezing Linda Apple for her lemonade secret is a waste of time.

    Not that her fellow Anderson County Fire Department Auxiliary members haven't tried.

    "Oh, they've tried," she said, taking a break from serving Lemon Shake Ups during last weekend's Burgoo Festival. "They've tried everything known to man and woman to get that recipe out of me, but I'm not saying."

  • Jim Sayre of Lawrenceburg won the Richard Burks Lincoln Heritage Award last Thursday in Hodgenville.

    The award is given to an individual or organization in recognition of efforts to perpetuate the history of LaRue County and the ideals of Abraham Lincoln, according to Lincoln Days president Jeff Hughes.

    Sayre has spent 30 years promoting LaRue County as if it were his “real” birthplace, Hughes said.

  • One Lawrenceburg resident is getting ready to compete on a national stage in front of thousands, if not millions, of viewers — but it’s not a human resident.

    Dugan, a 4 1/2-year-old Kerry Blue Terrier owned by George Geoghegan, will be shown at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden in New York this month.

    “This is the one (dog) show where all of them are champions,” Geoghegan said.

  • Parents can say a lot to their children by not saying anything at all — especially when it comes to sex.

    That’s one of the messages Betsy Neale, Ph.D., hopes to convey to Anderson County parents during a workshop Feb. 5.

    “By not saying anything, children can pick up the message that (sex) is embarrassing and that it’s something our culture doesn’t talk about,” Neale said.

  • All children deserve to have a home to go to on Christmas, a place to eat at Thanksgiving and someone to take them out on their birthday — at least that’s the way Faith Flowers sees it.

    However, Flowers, a Lawrenceburg resident, knows that isn’t always the case. Thousands of children sit waiting for a home in Kentucky’s foster care system alone, she said.

    Still, Flowers is doing her part (and encouraging others to do theirs) to change that.

    Flowers and her husband adopted Rachel a little over two years ago. At the time, Rachel was 15.

  • Students in the Student Technology Leadership Program at Anderson County Middle School recently launched an online newspaper, said STLP leader Lisa Winfrey.

    The blog can be accessed at http://ulearn.anderson.kyschools.us/sites/ams/ACMSnews/.

    Winfrey, who teaches accounting at the middle school, said she came up with the idea for a newspaper when selecting her Kentucky Teacher Internship Program Leadership Project.

  • Tom Creamer won over 650 games in his 35 years as a high school basketball coach. His teams made seven trips to the state tournament and experienced the thrill of a state championship in 1978.

    His coaching stops took him to various locales across Kentucky. He frequents Louisville Cardinal games and has been known to travel several hours just to watch a high school basketball contest.

    Chances are that one of Kentucky’s all-time greatest coaches will be heading to Lawrenceburg Saturday night. He’s had his calendar marked for Anderson County vs. Shelby County.

  • Kris Payton joined the United States Marine Corps last January because he wanted to make something of himself.

    “In a small town, there’s not much hope for people who don’t have much, and I was one of those people,” Payton said. “I wanted to take matters into my own hands and show people I can do something, then build off of it.”

    Payton had met all of his graduation requirements at Anderson County High School and was given permission by Principal Ray Woodyard to leave school to join the Marines.
