  • Plan OK’d for $17.5M warehouse

    A distribution company is negotiating to purchase all 47 acres of the industrial park on U.S. 127 where it plans to build a 306,000 square foot warehouse, The Anderson News has confirmed.
    Verst Group Logistics, located in northern Kentucky, received unanimous approval from the Lawrenceburg-Anderson County Planning and Zoning Commission last week on its site development plan for a proposed $17.5 million facility that would bring an undisclosed number of jobs to the area.

  • Needle exchange meeting is Monday

    City, county and health board officials will meet Monday to discuss the possibility of creating a needle exchange program for drug addicts.
    The meeting, which is open to the public, is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. and will be held at the health department building on Glensboro Road.
    The idea, which requires the approval of the health board, city council and fiscal court, surfaced during last month’s health board meeting and was immediately met with staunch opposition during a fiscal court meeting a few days later.

  • Cann should play key role for Wildcat women

    Remember those days when you could walk up to the ticket window at Memorial Coliseum and watch the University of Kentucky women’s basketball team play from no more than a few rows off the floor?

    That might be an exaggeration but not by much. Before Matthew Mitchell came, I’d been to games against Tennessee when I could have sworn there was more orange than blue in the house where Adolph Rupp once coached.

    And I can remember running a UK media release advertising an offer to purchase season tickets to women’s basketball for 20 bucks.

  • Lady Bearcats focus on win at Dunbar

    LEXINGTON – There is little argument against the idea that, when healthy and motivated, Anderson County is a heavy favorite to win the Eighth Region softball championship. It is also a given that the Lady Bearcats could be a threat to win the whole shebang when the 16 regional survivors meet in Owensboro the second weekend of June.

  • GROWING WITH HIS ROOTS

    The roots Connor Duncan wanted to grow with were roots he’d never seen or experienced.

    They were roots literally about halfway around the world and roots with no obvious manifestations in the Anderson County High School track star.

    Until now.

    Just look at his arm. His left arm, to be exact.

    Look at all of the ink on his left shoulder. On his bicep and tricep. All the way past his elbow to his forearm.

    Connor Duncan, the blue-eyed, blonde-haired hurdler, is in touch with his Samoan roots.

  • Bearcat tennis teams enter regional play

    The Anderson County High School tennis teams look to be on an uptick as they enter Region 8 play on Monday, May 9.

    The girls’ tournament gets underway at Western Hills High School while the boys will compete at Franklin County High. While weather could change the schedule, the tournaments are scheduled to be played at Franklin County from Tuesday through their completion.

  • Spencer sweeps season series

    Spencer County survived repeated Anderson County threats to post a 3-2 baseball win over the Bearcats Friday night in Taylorsville.

    The contest was the completion of a suspended game that had started three nights earlier. Anderson had taken a 2-0 lead in the top of the first when rain and lightning forced officials to stop play.

    When the teams got back together Friday, Spencer wasted no time tying things up on a two-run home run by Lucas Tackett off Anderson pitcher Luke Dowell.
