  • Fish on!

    One child landed a big catfish, thanks to a family friend’s “lucky pole.”

    Nearby, a pair of stepbrothers were dueling atop the leaderboard, each having hauled in a 5-plus pound catfish that were separated by just a few ounces and more than a little eager to share their fishing tale.

    A little further along, one young man hauled in a dandy catfish on his dad’s birthday, and just one day before his own.

  • Hop on the bus

    Seniors in wheelchairs and walkers lined the entryway to the Anderson County Senior Center on Monday to watch for the arrival of a new bus — a handicap-accessible bus.

  • New program will help seniors with pets

    Donna Callahan of the Anderson Humane Society told seniors about a new program the humane society is partnering with Bluegrass Community Action Partnership with that will help seniors care for their pets at the senior center Monday.

    She said the services provided will include delivering pet food, medicines, trimming pet nails, and vet visits.

    “It’s our way of helping you to keep your pet at home,” Callahan explained.

    She added that if seniors become hospitalized, their pets will be taken to a foster home, rather than a shelter.
