  • From staff reports

    A new church, Faith Bible Baptist Church, has opened in Lawrenceburg.

    Located at 209 East Woodford St. behind Scott Brown Karate School, the church is an independent and fundamental group that uses the King James Bible.

    Congregants practice a traditional style of worship and “aim to evangelize the gospel to the unchurched, strengthen and help the dissatisfied members of the community that are not going to church,” according to Pastor Nathan Mowery.

  • It’s the peak of summer. The countdown begins to the first day of back-to-school shopping. Parents are thrilled and kids want to stretch each day out to put off the inevitable.

    It’s been a busy summer for me and we didn’t get away to some exotic place or even Tennessee. I’m a band mom so in just a few days, my middle child and I will have our summer come to an abrupt end. That doesn’t mean I can’t try to imagine beach sunsets from my back deck. How? Through food and fabulous cocktails, of course.

  • 50 YEARS AGO

    Thursday, July 14, 1966

    John E. Tracy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Tracy, returned home after receiving his discharge from the U.S. Air Force. Tracy spent four years in the service. He came home from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

    Whew! The most talked about subject in Anderson County this week was the weather. It had been a scorcher with temperatures going to near record heights.

  • Hope you all had a happy and safe Fourth of July.

    It’s been hot, and it’s about to get hotter. Just the thought of turning on the grill, let alone the furnace (also known as the oven), on a hot day makes us sweat.

    The temptation to eat out, order take-out or just skip dinner altogether is enormous.
