  • Requests
    Can anybody tell me where the old Samples Graveyard is near Anderson City Road?
    Shirley Casey of Crittenden, Ky. is looking for her great-grandfather’s grave. His name was Elijah Mansford Lacefield and he died in 1906.
    Also I got a request a while back about a McMichael Cemetery. I had gotten the folks some info on that one but they didn’t think it was the one they were looking for.
    If you have any information on these two cemeteries, email me at jbowen@theandersonnews.com

  • 50 YEARS AGO
    July 20,1961
    Pleasant Hill Christian Church was destroyed by fire at 5:30 p.m. July 19.
    Several residents heard when lightning struck but did not know what was hit. Charles Burgin immediately went in his car to see if the church had been struck but didn’t see any evidence so he returned to his home for supper. A short time later he looked in the direction of the church and saw the entire building in flames.
    Lightning struck in a gable and was burning in the loft.

  • The other day I walked into my house and found an intruder.
    He looked mean, too.
    My husband calls creatures like him mud daubers. They’re a type of wasp, with stingers poised to pierce delicate skin such as mine.
    The intruder didn’t seem fazed that he was somewhere he didn’t belong and just buzzed around, probably plotting an attack on my bare arms.
