    Taylor, 31, a registered nurse, and her two children were sitting upstairs that night when the doorbell started ringing and someone started pounding on the door. Taylor said she kept asking, “Who is it? Who is it?” But no one responded.

  • Witnessing the death of a bedroom community

    The notion that Anderson County should remain a bedroom community has been issued a death sentence, and not a moment too soon.

    For decades our leaders and those bent on making fortunes on residential real estate have shunned industry and the tax base it provides.

    Don’t believe us? Then name one other county in the Bluegrass that hasn’t acquired a spin-off business since Toyota arrived in Georgetown all those years ago.

    You can’t because there aren’t any.

  • EDA gets pep talk from state expert

    Anderson County needs an industrial park if it hopes to create jobs and attract industry.

    That was the message delivered Wednesday morning by J.R. Wilhite, a commissioner with the state’s cabinet for economic development, to members of the Lawrenceburg-Anderson County Economic Development Authority.

    Wilhite said Anderson County already has many of the attributes companies looking to expand or relocate are looking for, except an industrial park.

    “Anderson County and Lawrenceburg are desirable locations,” he said.
