    Septic tank ordinance a ‘public embarrassment’

    To the editor:

    In 2004, the board of health evidently enacted the septic tank ordinance for no valid reason, and now it is attempting to defend that action with such stalwart statements as “had to start somewhere” or it was based on “expert testimony.”

    Who were the experts? They must have been the septic tank pumpers since they are the only beneficiaries of the ordinance.

  • COLUMN: Learning about Joy

    There was not much joy in Taylor Gillis' game Saturday.

    At least there wasn't until someone reminded her about Joy.

    Struggling more than a little bit with an uncharacteristic 6-over at the turn of the Joy of Golf Invitational – being played on her home course at Wild Turkey Trace, at that – Gillis got a little pep talk from someone closest to Joy Mountjoy.

  • Big plays, small things lead Bearcats past Mercer

    Big plays. Take advantage of opportunities. Little things.

    Anderson County mixed them all together Friday night and came up with a 42-21 win over Mercer County before a standing room only crowd at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    Quarterback Jacob Russell found senior classmate Grant Cox for scoring passes of 47, 76 and 70 yards and broke off a 75-yard run to start the second half as the Bearcats moved to 3-0 on the year.

  • Dog ordinance dies in fiscal court

    An ordinance that would have tightened the leash on potentially vicious and vicious dogs was killed last Tuesday morning by the Anderson County Fiscal Court.

    Several magistrates said they were uncomfortable passing the ordinance because it contained what amounted to a leash law that would have required all dog owners to keep their dogs on a leash while off their property.

    Currently, dogs can roam free on their own property, but must only be under voice command of their owners when off.

  • Grades 6-8 hear Obama; K-5 don't

    Students at Anderson County Middle School joined students all around the country Tuesday afternoon as they logged on to hear President Barack Obama encourage them to take responsibility for their own education.

    Obama’s speech, delivered from a high school in Virginia, drew criticism locally and nationally beginning more than a week before it was broadcast live on the Internet and CSPAN.

    A transcript of the speech was released Monday, about 24 hours in advance of the webcast.

  • Wreck on 62 claims woman's life

    A Lawrenceburg woman was killed Saturday morning when the vehicle she was driving collided with another on Highway 62.

    Brenda Gail Napier, 29, of 1003 Langefield Drive in the Glenview subdivision was pronounced dead at scene at 9:55 a.m.

    Napier was traveling toward Lawrenceburg near Robert B. Turner Elementary School when her vehicle apparently veered into the other lane, grazing a pickup truck driven by Julius Clifton Noel Jr. of Lawrenceburg, according to Anderson County Coroner Brian Ritchie.

  • COLUMN: Real rivalry returns Friday night

    It isn't Odessa Permian vs. Midland Lee but a real live rivalry is this week's version of Friday Night Lights in Lawrenceburg.

    Make that a real live rivalry is hopefully coming back to life when Anderson hosts Mercer County. It has been been four years since they met and 13 years since the game has been for more than mere bragging rights.

    But that really never mattered. Many times when the Bearcats and Scotties tangled, which was most years from 1963 through 2005, bragging rights were all that mattered, just like it will be Friday night.

  • Russell, Cox team up to lead Bearcats past Mercer

    It was simply a matter of Anderson County recognizing Mercer County’s defense.

    Three times Anderson quarterback Jacob Russell and end Grant Cox noted a hole in the Titan defense when Mercer lined up in a certain coverage. Three times, the tandem struck on touch down passes of 47, 76 and 70 yards to lead the Bearcats to a 42-21 win before an overflow crowd at Warford Stadium.

    “I thought Jacob played big tonight,” said Anderson coach Mark Peach. “Cox was super."
