    Over the years I have found that Santa isn’t very picky when it comes to the cookies we leave him.

    I know that because there have been times that I’ve gone to great detail to make him the cutest sugar cookies with decorations and sprinkles all over them and then to the other extreme when I had my son just a week before Christmas and had no time for baking cookies so I ran to the store and got some that I thought he’d like.

    A few years ago, I was searching for a Christmas gift for a friend of mine who has everything. Needless to say, I resorted to food.

    And because she is a chocolate lover, I decided to make her some truffles. They turned out to be some of the best truffles I’ve ever eaten.

    They are easy, fun, and a very attractive gift for any chocolate lover, including myself. Not only are they a great gift, but they’re also a perfect treat to serve at a Christmas party.

    Free clothing days resumes in February

  • Some Lawrenceburg residents will celebrate New Year’s Eve in a way most wouldn’t suspect.

    While others toot noisemakers, wear pointy hats and consume adult beverages, this group will begin reading the Bible at the stroke of midnight and continue for several days.

    “We’ll start reading with the first verse in Genesis to the last verse in Revelations,” said Lisa Owens, president of the Anderson County chapter of Awakening Ministries of Kentucky.

  • Got a note from Willanna Young about the storm photo on the Way page Dec. 2.

    She said it gave her chillls. “Jimmy and I had just bought and moved into this house here on Court Street the week of Thanksgiving of 1964. I so clearly remember the rain and the wind. Like nothing I had ever heard before,” she said.

    A huge pine tree was damaged in their yard and took the back off their roof. “I know the children were scared to death.,” she wrote.

  • If Christmas is a time of joy, laughter and worship, there should be plenty of the spirit of the season going around Sunday at Sand Spring Baptist Church.

    Comedian Tim Lovelace will appear in the church’s annual Christmas Homecoming celebration on Sunday, Dec. 13, which features the Sand Spring choir along with local singers Meredith Hyatt Lewis and Jeremy Dickerson. Performances are scheduled for 3 and 6:30 p.m.

    Tornado hits Anderson County

    A corridor of wind and rain classified as a tornado, swept through Lawrenceburg shortly past midnight Friday, leaving in it’s wake property damage expected to reach near $500,000. Only four people were reported injured.

    The tornado, moving west to east through town, apparently broke up when it reached the Kentucky River. Damage was mainly in the downtown section, although the storm ripped property within a three-mile radius of Main Street.
