  • Franklin’s peak performance leads mistake-prone Bearcats past Valley

    It might be unrealistic to expect Anderson County to be perfect in the final six games of the high school football season.

    But it might happen if Mark Peach’s assessment of the Bearcats’ 20-0 win over Valley Friday night is correct.

    “We had a season full of mistakes in one game and still won 20-0,” Peach half-chuckled after his team improved to 3-1 on the season. “We had all those mistakes and still won 20-0. I don’t know how we did that.”

    The Bearcats and Flyers get together for the 20th renewal of an on-again, off-again series that dates to 1970. The series has been mostly on for the last 20 years with the teams putting up some memorable battles.

  • Family, friends help WWII vet celebrate his 94th birthday

    When World War II veteran Alvin “Huston” Perry was being held as a prisoner of war, the last thing on his mind would have been how and where he’d someday celebrate his 94th birthday.

    He was likely much more concerned if he’d live to see his next one.

    The lifetime Lawrenceburg resident who now resides at the Thomson-Hood Veterans Home in Wilmore, lived to celebrate many more birthdays, including his 94th recently with a host of family and friends, which culminated with a hearty rendition of “Happy Birthday.”
