  • First Baptist musicians indicted

    Two Lawrenceburg men were indicted on felony charges last week by a Franklin County Grand Jury for what police say was their part in creating a fake commercial drivers license.

    Lance Roe, 28, apparently wanted the license to drive a bus for First Baptist Church, where he serves as an organist.

    Police say the church’s pianist, Michael Sivils, 45, assisted Roe in obtaining the license by altering a state computer system database to make it appear that Roe had passed a test to obtain the license.

  • Coaches, media don’t have to be best buds

    At least Glen Drury didn’t brush me off Friday night.

    Not that I expected him to, but it seemed like every other coach in Kentucky was beginning to do that last week.

    When Drury emerged from the visitors’ locker room at Lexington’s Dunbar High School to speak with me about the game, he prefaced his first remark with, “When I finally got in there...”

    Drury’s routine is to quickly shake hands with the opposing coach, head to his locker room to talk with his team, then unwind a few moments before talking with the local media.

  • Blogging is cool; letters are better

    Some newspaper industry wonks say the measure of a paper’s success lies almost exclusively with its bottom line.

    Perhaps, but nothing offers a more accurate measure of a newspaper’s health than the letters and correspondence it receives from readers.

    Over the past year, this page has gone from one letter a week (if that) to at least several or more in nearly every edition.

  • Goose’s goose nearly cooked

    A pet goose at the Kentucky State University farm off US 127 survived after a burglar shot it while stealing items Thursday night from an office building at the complex.

    Burglars broke into the office, trashed it and stole about $8,000 worth of items, according to Tiua Chilton, the university’s assistant chief of police.

    Why one of the burglars shot the goose is anyone’s guess, but Chilton figures it was to shut it up.

    Stimulus plan ‘fundamentally flawed’

    To the editor:

    I know that our illustrious leaders in Washington have their thoughts on getting control of the economy, but there are a few general flaws that I believe they have overlooked.

    I am not an economist and I don’t claim to be, but here are a few things that I feel is wrong with the stimulus bill.

  • Come out and support skate park fundraiser

    When I decided to join the Lawrenceburg Skate Park committee with my mother in honor of my brother’s memory, I knew I was doing something good for my community and the youth that live here.

    However, I did not know where this journey was going to lead me.

    I have been amazed at the wonderful people that I have met, the encouragement I have received from friends, family and even people in this community that I did not know before getting involved.

  • Bearcats show promise at regional meet
