  • Tourney runner-up
  • Ultimate teammate loved by all who knew him

    Kentucky lost a good one last week.

    Make that a great one that our state lost when Eric Chrisman, a Kentucky State Trooper who was less than six months into his career, died in the line of duty.

    Our state lost a great young man who just happened to grow up in Anderson County.

    Even though we were distant cousins through our mothers, I didn't really know Eric Chrisman well. I had seen him play basketball when he was attending Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg and really remember only one thing about his career.

  • Hundreds pay respects to fallen trooper

    Hundreds of mourners paid their respects to Kentucky State Trooper Eric Chrisman during visitation at Ninevah Christian Church Sunday afternoon.

    Chrisman, 23, was an Anderson County native and graduated from Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg in 2009.

  • Beat the heat with icy treats

    Growing up in the south Texas heat, my sisters and brothers and I were always either in the lake, the pool or the sprinkler.

    If for some reason we ever took a break from the water, we were running around barefoot with the other neighborhood kids, laughing and playing and secretly hoping to hear the music of the ice cream truck so we could enjoy a cool treat.
