  • Taxpayers on hook to fix road years after bond cashed

    One bond was cashed in 12 years ago, but the work it was supposed to pay for was never done.
    Another bond, this one to fix the small road that leads to 4 Way Stop and Go and Century 21 off Frankfort Road, means taxpayers will be on the hook for thousands to make repairs.

  • Lessons learned from gardening mistakes

    I really love silver linings. Sometimes, however, it’s really tough to find them.
    Take this summer for example. We’ve had a high number of insect pests, unseasonably hot weather and record low rainfall. Needless to say, it has been a challenging summer for gardeners and farmers.

    The endings were so different. The feelings were at the opposite ends of the emotional spectrum.

    Back on Oct. 14, Anderson County football players walked off the home field after taking a 56-24 beating from District 6 foe Franklin County. To make matters worse, it was Anderson's Senior Night and there was a danger the mental beating might have been worse than the one that saw several Bearcats head to the bench and not return.

  • Apologies to the Class of 2013

    Dear Anderson County high school seniors, Class of 2013:
    I apologize in advance.
    Many of you won’t read this column, because according to some of your elders, you’ve never seen a newspaper.

  • Who among you will raise a hand in public?

    A private show of hands, please, from those who think that the state Transportation Cabinet’s efforts to use political candidate Kent Stevens to deliver “contingency” road paving funds to Anderson County was not politically motivated in any way. (See story, A1.)
