  • Conway, Satterly say safety is first in youth football

    John Wayne Conway never played football at Western High School. There never were enough numbers for the Eagles to field a team.

    But the Anderson County Judge-Executive has been a lifelong fan of the game. He was stunned when future NFL Hall of Famer Junior Seau took his own life in May. He'd read many of the stories about former NFL players dealing with problems presumably caused by concussions many years earlier.

    He had become aware that some former pros were steering their children away from the game.

  • Fundraiser tonight for teen killed in wreck

    A fundraiser is scheduled for 6 to 8 tonight to help raise funds for the family of a Lawrenceburg teenager killed early this month in a wreck.

    Cody Ramsey, who would have been a high school senior this year, worked part-time in the county park, and his co-workers, other county employees and fiscal court magistrates have already raised about $800 to help cover his final expenses.

    With a little gunsmithing work and the right ammunition along with pre-season shooting practice, deer hunters will be ready to close the deal when a shooter buck walks into range this November.
    The first step is to find a competent gunsmith who can accomplish three procedures: adjusting the trigger pull, free-floating the rifle’s barrel and bedding its action.
