  • Point taken!

    There aren’t many things in the life of a teenager that can top that day when he gets his driver’s license, but Neal Wells isn’t your ordinary 16-year-old.

    He’s a football player. A good one.

    And just two days after being able to take a spin without someone sitting to his right, Wells came up even bigger to help Anderson County outlast visiting Jeffersontown for a major district win Friday night.

    And just like his driving now, Wells made the biggest play of the night on his own.

  • District court proceedings

    Judge Donna Dutton heard the following cases during Anderson District Court proceedings Aug. 3.

    Shana L. Bowman, hearing, license to be in possession, failure of non-owner operator to maintain required insurance -- bonded out.

    Bradley D. Comp, arraignment, third-degree terroristic threatening -- continued first appearance Aug. 27.

    Bryan E. Duke, motion to revoke probation, operating on a suspended/revoked operator’s license, failure of owner to maintain required insurance/security -- motion granted, to serve five days.

  • Conference champs!

    The Anderson County Middle School football team rolled past Shelby West 29-14 last Tuesday to with the regular season conference championship and remain unbeaten on the year.

    The Mustangs spotted Shelby West an early 6-0 lead, then roared back for the win.

    With time running out in the first quarter, Anderson quarterback Zachary Carmichael connected with Ross Cox on a 25 yard touchdown pass, but the conversion failed.

  • COLUMN: Make the effort to volunteer in the community

    Volunteering, a great opportunity to help people, meet people, and get recommendations for college. In fact, just getting involved in our community helps. Have you ever thought about it? While sure we can’t all be a mayor or judge, but the little things we do help so much.

  • 'We can make it better'

    There is a widespread perception that the Kentucky-Indiana high school basketball all-star series is on life support, but Anderson County coach Glen Drury believes the series could become a hoops version of Lazarus.

    Last week, he took an official step toward pumping life into the series, at least on the south side of the Ohio River, by accepting an offer to coach the Kentucky boys’ team in 2011.

  • ‘Second Sunday’ encourages citizens to get active

    For the first time, Anderson County is participating in “Second Sunday,” which is a “statewide event that encourages all forms of physical activity within the local community and is designed to get Kentuckians moving,” according to the event website, www.2ndsundayky.com.

    Car-based development harms the least among us

    To the editor:

    Juanita Stratton does not drive. Like the majority of Anderson County residents, she lives in a residential subdivision, far away from essential destinations such as the doctor’s office, grocery stores, schools, and parks.

  • EDITORIAL: Provide opportunities to prevent 'brain drain'

    Anderson County will be presented with an opportunity over the next couple years to clog up the drain and prevent its brains from slipping away into other areas. This is an opportunity the county should fully embrace.

    As a story on this week’s front page points out, the Lawrenceburg campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College has seen a 46 percent increase in enrollment in the past year. Around 800 students are enrolled at the campus.

    As the story also says, those students are of all ages — from 16 to 83, says Campus Liaison Rhonda Wheeler.
