  • A very depressing telephone call

    Column as I see ’em …

    He went on and on last Friday, telling me one sad story after the next about Anderson County’s shortcomings, near misses and inability to secure that which seemingly comes easy to other communities.

    It’s a conversation I’ve had before, but never with someone who knew so much about the machinations that have left our area wanting while other areas flourished.

  • Know what labels mean

    When you go grocery shopping, you’ve probably seen some new terms on the labels of your favorite foods. These terms are not meant to cause confusion but can help you make more informed choices about the foods you eat. This is a good thing, as concerns among consumers about food origin, safety and quality continue to increase.

    However, not everything may be a benefit to you. Read the label carefully.

  • Wet spring brings array of common pests

    Gnats are any of several species of small, non-biting flies. They appear suddenly, forming annoying swarms in the air as they mate. While they look like mosquitoes, these gnats cannot bite. Usually, they live for just a few days, and then disappear. Some are attracted to light and may be a nuisance, landing on people or entering homes or businesses.

    The immature stages of gnats develop in standing water in pools, containers, ponds, clogged rain gutters, or in some cases, wet soil in seepage areas. Most feed on algae or decaying plant matter.

  • Raised garden beds equal less work

    Full time work off the farm leads to busy time on the farm. Thank goodness I love what I do, in both places. It also leads to some really long days and one very tired farmer. I usually write this on Friday mornings, and after such a week of wonderfully perfect working weather, I’m a little tuckered, and perhaps just a little slap happy, so be prepared.

    It is a rare occasion for my husband and I to get a night away without the kids, and sometimes when that night finally arrives, getting dressed up and driving to a busy restaurant is the last thing we want to do.

  • City police launch seat belt campaign

    The Lawrenceburg Police Department is joining the 2015 national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization on May 18 to help save lives by cracking down on those who don’t buckle up.

    “As motorists take to the roads to celebrate the long Memorial Day weekend, we want to ensure that everyone arrives at their destination safe and sound,” Sgt. Chris Beach said in a news release. “We’ll be out in force – day and night – prepared to ticket anyone not wearing a seat belt.”

  • Polson living big dream, ‘crazy story’

    Dreaming big dreams.

    That simple, yet gigantic step is usually the first step to success in any endeavor.

    For countless boys growing up in Kentucky, playing basketball in the recreation leagues, middle schools and high schools that dream starts with eventually wearing a blue and white uniform and running onto the floor at Rupp Arena. 

    Somewhere along the way, the cruel realization hits that the dream is bigger than one’s basketball ability.

    Jarrod Polson was no different.

    In many ways, that is.

  • Cann leaves Cincinnati program

    Former Anderson County High School girls’ basketball star Makenzie Cann has left the University of Cincinnati program.

    Cann confirmed her decision in a Twitter message to The Anderson News on Saturday.

    Cann saw action in all 31 games for Cincinnati last season, starting once. She averaged 7 points a game.

    She had a season-best 23 points against Central Florida in the AAC Tournament. The next game, eventual national champion UConn ended Cincy’s season. The Bearcats finished at 8-23.
