    The Anderson County High School swim team had a solid showing despite low numbers in a meet at the Shelby County Family Activity Center last Wednesday.

    A team already low on numbers, the Swim Cats went into the meet more short-handed with several swimmers out due to sickness.

  • Grandson surprises chief at Bond St. blaze

    Lawrenceburg Fire Chief Bobby Hume has been to enough fire and rescue scenes that not much surprises him when he arrives.
    That changed Friday when he rushed to house fire on Bond Street and saw his grandson manning a hose.
    Hume said he’d heard his grandson, Austin Taylor, was coming home on leave from Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo, Texas, where he is training to be a firefighter.
    But because Taylor had only been in town 30 minutes when the fire call came out, he wasn’t aware he was already here.

  • Still close to his roots

    EVANSTON, Ill. -- It only takes one glance to see that playing football for Northwestern University has changed Chris Fitzpatrick.

    His shoulders are much broader than they were when he last put on the shoulder pads for Anderson County’s trip to the state championship game five years ago this week. His jaw seems to have squared and his waist looks a bit smaller.

    Fitzpatrick chuckles at the assessment. “I was 6-(foot)-1 and weighed 215 in high school. I am about 240 now,” he says. “I shed some weight and put some muscle back on.”
