  • 'It was overwhelming'

    For Allie White, this year’s Anderson County Junior Miss program ended, at least in part, the same way it began — with a few tears.

    White became teary eyed Saturday night after hearing her name called as the winner of this year’s scholarship program Saturday night.

    “It’s the highest honor,” White said in an interview Monday afternoon. “I even cried. Junior Miss is a big deal. It was overwhelming.”

    White said she and the 18 other girls in the program came a long way from when practices started over three weeks ago.

  • Earning respect? Anderson singles advance in regional tournament

    FRANKFORT – The call for respect might be one of the most overused motivational ploys in all of sports, but it worked for Anderson County tennis on Monday.

    Stung by what they perceived as a bigger disrespecting than Aretha or Reba ever got, the Bearcat and Lady Bearcat singles' tennis players turned in one of the best days ever for Anderson at the regional tournaments being held in Frankfort. All of the Anderson singles advanced to the second round, with two moving on to the regional quarterfinals, played Tuesday after press time.

  • Primary set for Tuesday

    Democrats will head to the polls Tuesday to decide the fates of Anderson County’s incumbent judge-executive and sheriff, as well as two candidates for property value administrator and a host of hopefuls looking to win seats on the fiscal court.

    Republicans won’t vote on any local races, but will have a chance to nominate candidate to challenge incumbent Congressman Ben Chandler (D-Versailles) and a candidate to vie for the Senate seat that now belongs to outgoing Senator Jim Bunning. (See pullout for details.)

  • Neighbors save Alton Station man from drowning

    William Hainline can’t swim.

    So when he climbed into a small boat Sunday to put a fountain in his pond without wearing a life jacket, even he admits it wasn’t the brightest thing he has ever done.

    “I just sink like a rock, so not having a life jacket on is the stupidest thing a person can do,” Hainline said Monday morning. “If my neighbors hadn’t been there, I would have been a goner just due to my own stupidity.”
