  • What does the County Clerk’s Office do?

    By Jason Denny

    Anderson County Clerk

    When most individuals think of the Anderson County Clerk’s Office, motor vehicles come to mind. However, motor vehicles are just a small portion of our job responsibility.

    Kentucky is one of only a few states that have numerous job titles in one office.

    Below is a short list of some of the duties that the county clerk’s office is responsible for:

    •Taking, recording and indexing the minutes of the fiscal court.

  • Try these methods to controls wasps, hornets

    Our office has received many calls over the last month regarding hornets and yellowjackets. Hornets are far more dangerous to control than paper wasps. Hornets nests can contain thousands of wasps which are extremely aggressive when disturbed. A full wasp suit sealed at the wrists, ankles and collar is recommended when disposing of a hornet nest.

  • An heirloom jewelry story: the wedding day pearls

    I wore my strand of pearls today, the ones my husband gave me on our wedding day.

    Though I have a good amount of jewelry in my wooden jewelry box, this piece is my favorite. It always makes me feel beautiful and elegant. Real pearls have a slight weight around your neck; it’s a constant reminder of the best day of my life and makes me feel engulfed in love.

  • Start canning your summer bounty

    Finally, a good long drink arrived and the gardens and wildflowers went “ahhhhhh.” Mother Nature sure has been stingy with her water this season, especially here on the farm. Even my purple cone flowers were looking droopy.

    Out here on “The Ridge,” rains frequently go around us. It can be pouring down in town and we may get only sprinkles here on the farm. Occasionally, the tables may turn, but that’s usually in the winter.

  • Mind games: Never-say-die attitude propels Bearcats to romp

    Since that day he came home to lead the Anderson County High School football program, Mark Peach has preached the mind is where the champions are separated from those who are merely good.

    Friday night, it was no exception.

    The Bearcats were never seriously threatened in a 42-6 win over George Rogers Clark in the Bearcats' season opener. They methodically wore the visitors down with an offensive line that punished the Cardinals and a spread-the-wealth attack that saw three Bearcats run for at least 70 yards and four different runners reach the end zone.

  • FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Bearcats chasing championships the American way

    The red, white and blue just runs through these guys.

    Every day. Every week. Every time they get together to play football, these Anderson County Bearcats are as red, white and blue as Toby Keith.

    They’d be just as at home with Rick Monday or Jim Craig as they would Nick Saban.

    Monday, playing for the Chicago Cubs, famously grabbed Old Glory from some protestors who had gotten on the field at Dodger Stadium and were intent on burning the flag.

  • Red, white and blue runs through this Bearcat’s veins

    This ain’t no rag it’s a flag

    And we don’t wear it on our heads

    It’s a symbol of the land where the good guys live

    --Charlie Daniels

    It all started when an Anderson County football fan brought a large American flag to a game several years back.

  • Olympian's message to the Bearcats

    Staff Sgt. Dallas Robinson was not always a world-class athlete and he makes sure everyone hearing his message understands that.

    “I am one of six who got to compete in Russia as a soldier and an Olympian,” he said a few moments before addressing the Anderson County football team on Aug. 21. “I wasn’t the best athlete on my high school team. I was probably the third-best and ended up in the Olympics.”

  • Bearcats aiming for repeat title in balanced district

    Mark Peach knew the rich history of Anderson County football success – and its missing link – when he undertook the challenge of rebuilding the fortunes of Bearcat football in December, 2004.

    There had been many great teams. He’d even played on one that went undefeated in the regular season in 1986. There had even been a good number of Anderson clubs to make the top five in their respective classes from time to time.

  • Bearcats set to embark on title quest

    Anderson County embarks on what it hopes will be a high school football season filled with joy when the Bearcats host George Rogers Clark this Friday, Aug. 29 at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    A year ago, the Bearcats were sloppy with four turnovers and seven penalties but still managed to rout the Cardinals, 50-21, in the season-opener.

    Some things have changed since then as Anderson had key graduation losses, but Clark also has had to learn a new system as Mike Riddle has replaced Steven Collins as Clark head coach.
