    Cat cages at the Anderson Humane Society are filled with two and sometimes as many as four cats. Currently, there are 33 cats housed at the humane society, about 40 cats in foster homes and 28 at animal control. The agency was overrun with cats two weeks ago when 30 cats were brought in one day. Being a small facility, the humane society can’t take on the influx of cats alone.

  • 09-24 Chamber Page featured business: Proudly serving Lawrenceburg since 1885

    The Anderson County branches of Farmers Bank & Capital Trust Co. have a history going back to 1885 when Lawrenceburg National Bank opened for business.

    A hundred years later, the bank was purchased by Frankfort’s Farmers Bank. LNB, as it would later be called, continued to operate independently until 2010 when it and Farmers merged. Though this consolidation meant a name change, the bank’s employees remain committed to community involvement and attention to customer needs.
