  • Experienced Rams looking for third KCSAA state title

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg has one goal for the 2015-16 season: Take the Title.

    At least that is the goal in terms of the team record. There are other off-the-court goals ahead of that one but with four starters returning along with some other talented players moving up from the junior varsity, the Rams opened the season recently as the top-ranked team in the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association.

  • Rose named second team all-conference

    Anderson County resident Bill Rose, a kicker on the Kentucky State University football team, has been named to the All-Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference second team, according to a news release.

    A junior who transferred to Kentucky State from Murray State, Rose hit on 5-of-8 field goal attempts with a long kick of 37 yards.

    Rose also hit on 12-of-13 extra point attempts for the Thorobreds, who finished the season on Nov. 7.

  • Poor turnout tells politicians we don’t care

    I don’t think very many of us saw this one coming.

    Privately, I had told a very few close friends that I thought Matt Bevin was going to be the next governor of Kentucky, but that we might not know until the early hours of Nov. 4, the day after we had the opportunity to go to the polls.

    A statewide margin of less than 10,000 votes either way would not have been a surprise and the lingering question would have been the effect of a third-party candidate.

  • Many deserve thanks for contributions to smooth-running election process

    Another election has come and gone.

    Even though we experienced a larger voter turnout than originally thought, we had very few issues. As usual, the Attorney General’s Office visited several of the voting locations looking for voter fraud and election officer compliance. To our knowledge, no fraud was found.

    I want to thank several for helping make Election Day go so well. I will start with my staff.

  • Make a list or have a hug: De-stress for holidays

    Well, it’s that time of year again. We’re just days away from everything, and lists are appearing everywhere.

    A list for the grocery, a list for getting things out of closets and cupboards, a list for the order of cooking, and that’s just for Thanksgiving!

    Planning ahead by making a list does more than just ensure a well cooked dinner for family and friends; it helps you sleep and saves you money.

  • Farmboy work ethic key to Bearcats’ success in 2016

    When I fire up the tractor and roll in the hay

    Light up a bonfire at the end of the day

    Taking a sip from mama’s Mason jar

    I ain’t scared to work, that’s how I was raised

    Live by the Bible and taught how to pray

    Sow my crops where the river meets the sky

    I’m a F.A.R.M.B.O.Y.

    Yes, I’m a farmboy till the day that I die.

    --J.D. Shelburne
