  • Amy Adams Anderson County’s 1988 Junior Miss

    80 YEARS AGO

    Thursday, May 13, 1937

    Bettie Gilbert, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J.W. Gilbert, a freshman at the Law College of the University of Kentucky, was imitated in Phi Beta Kappa, a national honorary scholarship fraternity. Gilbert was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, a national social sorority.

    Baseball in Lawrenceburg started out with a flourish last Sunday when the Stringtown Shamrocks nosed out Lawrenceburg by a score of 3 to 1 at Lyen’s Park.

  • Revolutionary War soldier honored at Salt River Baptist

    From staff reports

    Respects were paid April 23 to an Anderson County soldier from the Revolutionary War.

    The Shelby County Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution honored Reuben Boston with a 21-musket salute and grave marking ceremony at Salt River Baptist Church and sang “The Parting Glass,” a song dating back to the 1700s, organizers said.

    Some of Boston’s relatives were on hand for the ceremony, including Luther and Dudley Davenport of Anderson County and Kimberly Boston Ries, who traveled from Virginia.

  • ‘On the Town’

    Haven’t decided what to do, or what to get mom for Mother’s day? Ladies Day Out this Saturday in Lawrenceburg could serve an opportunity to fulfill both.

    This year will be the fourth annual Ladies Day Out, which starts with open registration for all that wish to attend May 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Anderson County Senior Center located at 160 Township Square. Upon registering, participants will receive a shopping bag, a map and list of discounts at each participating store, and a shopping pass to be used in those stores through out town.

  • Recipes to help wow your mother on her special day

    If you bet on the horses this past Saturday and I hope you won. I don’t recall the track ever being that muddy before.

    The upside is the sun came out on Sunday and I could work in my garden. My goal is always to have at least half in the ground by Derby. Mission accomplished.

    My 5-year-old has a raised bed garden that he planted and will water and watch. I think it’s important for him to understand where food comes from, how much work is involved, and how much better it tastes.

  • Powered up for a rocking night in second home

     

    It’s impossible to know what might happen during a live concert, but J.D. Shelburne says he will guarantee that the next time he sings in Lawrenceburg won’t be a repeat of the last.

    Last November, the country music performer was in town to perform at Cat Madness to kick off the basketball season in Anderson County. During an acoustic performance in the high school gym, Bearcat coach Glen Drury joined Shelburne for a rendition of “Wagon Wheel.”

    The sound system crashed as soon as Drury started singing.

    Really.

  • Derby helps promote Kentucky proud

    The Kentucky Derby elevates the Commonwealth to a global stage. The Derby – as well as the Kentucky Oaks and the run-up to Thoroughbred racing’s biggest weekend – also gives Kentucky Proud foods a chance to shine.

  • Do you complain about politics but still tune in to all bloviators?

    At a recent book club gathering, while discussing J.D. Vance’s bestselling Hillbilly Elegy, we fell to talking politics.

    Our fall came unexpected. Book club has always been sacrosanct, a space carved out once a month for literature, fun, good friends and conversation. For, let’s be honest, a night out with wine and cheese.

    That’s not to say we spend every minute of the night talking about the book we (were supposed to have) read. But politics? Politics have always been a big fat no.

    Until Hillbilly Elegy, where we could not avoid it.

  • Lay out your garden plans before starting to work

    Happy May. Let the gardening begin. Instead of just going shopping for plants and then coming home to plant them, may I suggest you lay out a garden plan first? It kind of forces you to think about how much stuff you need. It also helps if you pick your varieties, especially if you grow corn and tomatoes to can.

    I have varieties of tomatoes that can be harvested in as little as 55 days, some that take 90 days, and some in-between. That allows me to harvest throughout the season and not be inundated with tons of ripe ones all at once. You can do the same with corn.

  • California to Kentucky! What was I thinking?

    It was not easy taking one week to drive across the country with my husband, three children, two cars, one dog, piles of suitcases, blankets and toys to arrive at our new home in Kentucky. By the time we hit Oklahoma it was our fourth day on the road. I honestly started questioning how many more days I could drive in a row, or if we would ever reach our destination.
