  • COLUMN: Childlike faith - and thoughts

     Children are wonderful. First of all, they’re so cute you can hardly stand it, and secondly, they have such a fresh view of the world.

    They haven’t had a chance to become as jaded as the rest of us.

    Take for instance my cousin, who can’t be 10 yet.

    Her family just went through an extremely traumatic experience — their house burned down and they lost everything, literally everything.

    Thank goodness no one was hurt because losing everything you own seems traumatic enough.

  • Weston Wayne Stovall birth

    Kayla Searcy Stovall and Clay Vaughn Stovall of Lawrenceburg announce the birth of their son, Weston Wayne Stovall, on Aug. 17, 2010 at Frankfort Regional Medical Center in Frankfort.

    His paternal grandparents are Brenda and the late Lewis Stovall. 

  • Bearcats staying on the message

    HARRODSBURG – Long before Anderson County ran that first wind sprint or hit that first blocking sled in the pre-season, the message was always the same: Don’t just get to the state playoffs. Do some damage once you get there.

    Those days are still seven weeks away, but Bearcat football coach Mark Peach has not gotten off the central point of his season-long sermon. And Friday’s 42-13 romp at Mercer County was no exception.

  • Do they need more tax money?

    Increased costs, decreased state and federal funding and taxpayer burden will all factor into the Anderson County Board of Education’s decision next Wednesday on what to do with its tax rate.

    But what is driving those increases and decreases?

    To help the public understand more about those increases and decreases before next Wednesday night’s pubic hearing, The Anderson News asked the school’s chief finance officer, Nick Clark, to share some insight on both.

  • Where's Ben? Right here!

    Tickets are $30 each.

  • Collins pulls away from Lady Bearcats

    A late surge was all that Collins needed to defeat host Anderson County for the second time in two weeks in 28th District volleyball action last Thursday.

    Already up with a win in game one, the Titans broke a 13-13 deadlock in game two, gaining possession and the lead on a bad return by the Lady Bearcats. Heather Luce then served up five straight points, giving Collins an insurmountable 19-13 lead.

  • COLUMN: Much to like about the Bearcats

    Random thoughts while figuring the Reds' magic number ...

    There is a lot to like about the Anderson County football team and the Bearcats showed why Friday at Mercer County.

    There is a long way to go in the season and a good Henry County team coming to town this week, so let's not get ahead of ourselves. The Wildcats might have the best quarterback the Bearcats will see this year and last year's game was closer than the 42-7 final would indicate.

    But still, the Anderson team has shown it has the potential to be playing well into the post-season.

  • Thoughts sought on updated plan

    Public input is encouraged, according to the news release.

  • Murder victim slashed multiple times

    An Anderson County man is in jail on murder charges after police found the body of a woman in his residence at 4197 Bardstown Road on Saturday.
