  • Hop on the bus

    Seniors in wheelchairs and walkers lined the entryway to the Anderson County Senior Center on Monday to watch for the arrival of a new bus — a handicap-accessible bus.

  • Man killed when bike hits tree

    Donald “Duck” Curtsinger Jr. couldn’t have been happier than when he fulfilled a lifelong dream of purchasing a Harley-Davidson motorcycle about two weeks ago.

    “He had wanted a bike all of his life,” said close friend William Desponett. “He got a wonderful price on a Harley-Davidson and called me as soon as he got it. He said, ‘Billy, you’re not going to believe it, but I got my bike! I got my bike!’ He sounded like a kid at Christmas.

    “He finally got him one, and it killed him.”

  • Morgue not OSHA compliant

    With no running water, the county’s morgue does not comply with OSHA standards, Coroner Dr. Mark Tussey has confirmed.

    Tussey warned magistrates during a recent Anderson County Fiscal Court meeting that the facility, which opened nearly a year ago, does not meet the standards required the the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

    “I don’t think county morgue is up to OSHA standards,” Tussey said during a protracted argument that ensued after a magistrate called Tussey’s spending “irresponsible.”

  • Bro. Mike, Sand Spring to celebrate 20 years

    Sand Spring Baptist Church has grown in size both physically and spiritually in the 20 years of Bro. Mike Hamrick’s service as pastor.

    Having gone through two major building projects, the educational building and fellowship hall in 2002, and a new sanctuary and more educational space in 2009, the church has expanded.

    “The most notable difference in the church is the size of the building,” Hamrick said.

  • Worth a thousand words

    When Claude Hammond was sent an old photo showing two well-dressed young ladies looking at the backside of a photograph, he flipped it over and read “Miss Alma Foster” and “Miss Ora Foster, Lawrenceburg, Ky.” scribbled in barely visible pencil and stamped with the year “1927” on the back, he didn’t think much of it.

  • Biker killed on Bonds Mill Road

    A Lawrenceburg man was killed this afternoon when the motorcycle he was riding went off Bonds Mill Road and struck a tree, the Kentucky State Police confirmed.

    Donald G. “Duck” Curtsinger, 47, was pronounced dead at a hospital following the accident, which occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Bonds Mill, near Paxton Road.

    Curtsinger was driving a 2002 FLH Harley-Davidson and was traveling east on Bonds Mill when he failed to negotiate a left curve and left the right shoulder of the road, according to a news release from the Kentucky State Police.

  • Giant boiler arrives for new still at Four Roses

    A giant boiler for the ongoing Four Roses expansion project made its way south on U.S. 127 Bypass this morning, blocking both lanes of traffic as it headed toward the distillery.

    The 100,000-gallon boiler is the first of the major components to arrive at Four Roses, which is constructing a new still to keep up with product demand, according to the plant’s chief operating officer, Ryan Ashley.

    It replaces the plant’s 40,000-gallon boiler.

    Once it place, the building that will house the still will be erected around it, Ashley said.
