  • Pay to play OK’d by school board

    The Anderson County Board of Education approved the implementation of athletic fees for the 2015-16 school year during its monthly meeting last week.

    High school athletes will be asked to pay a yearly fee of $70 with the second child in a household paying $50. Students at the middle and elementary schools will pay $25 per sport. All families will have a $150 cap regardless of number of children or sports played.

  • Giving Main Street another chance

    Life is slowly coming to downtown Lawrenceburg. Anyone who takes a stroll down the sidewalks on Main Street can see the fresh paint on the old buildings, new signs in the windows and construction crews, plumbers and electricians working long hours to bring new businesses to fruition.

    When asked why the resurgence, many new business owners say they were inspired by the sudden spike in bourbon’s popularity and, as the Bourbon Trail continues to attract thousands of visitors to local distilleries, they say they hope to offer out-of-towners a taste of Lawrenceburg.

  • The Way We Were:Cartinhour receives Meritous Service Award

    Betty Hatter sent an email about the Anderson All-star photo on last week’s Way page. She had two sons in the photo, Jacky Hatter and Robby Hatter, the batboy. She said she remembered this “season in our life” really well and the good times with good friends.

  • Athletic fee is yet another income tax

    Column as I see ’em …

    I’ve stayed out of the dust-up regarding the school board’s decision to start charging student athletes a fee to play a sport.

    Until now, that is.

    Like the $50 instructional fee parents of high school students who don’t receive free or reduced lunches are “required” to pay, the fee to play sports is optional.

    That’s right, it’s optional, but don’t expect to hear or read that anywhere else.
