  • Imagining our city with nine more bars

    By Ben Carlson

    Column as I see ’em …

    Here’s something I’ll bet you didn’t know.

    Were there enough interest, Lawrenceburg could have nine more bars.

    Yes, you read that correctly. Little old Lawrenceburg, which less than 10 years ago didn’t even allow liquor by the drink, has that many retail drink liquor licenses available should anyone choose to open that many places to drink it.

  • Developers ready for LIFT

    By Hal Goode

    Guest columnist

    Recently, the Kentucky House of Representatives took a big step forward in allowing local communities more control over their own growth and economic development. With overwhelming bipartisan support, the House passed LIFT, or Local Investments for Transformation.  This a bill allowing Kentuckians to decide for themselves if they want to allow local voters to invest in economic development and infrastructure projects in their communities.

  • And the drumbeat for war goes on

    To the editor:

    Warmongers in Congress learned nothing from the well-taught lessons of Vietnam. Remedial lessons were repeated in the Middle East, and they flunked them.

    Erase their failures to learn and ISIS would be one less problem in the world.

    Consequential samplings related to their failures include: Muammar Gaddafi, Libra, shot to death; Saddam Hussein, Iraq, death by hanging; Hosni Mubarak, Egypt, forced resignation.

  • Bidding good riddance to February

    Hello, March, I am so glad to see you.

    February is in the record books and I fervently hope those records stand for a long, long time. I want to open the door in the morning and walk outside to stand in shorts and a T-shirt.

    March is filled with ups and downs when it comes to the weather, but hopefully we’ll see the mercury rising in leaps and bounds. March begins with the Full Worm Moon Thursday and Daylight Savings time Sunday.

  • Development is key to improving reproductive efficiency in heifers

    To improve the reproductive efficiency, and thus profitability, of a beef cattle operation, you must understand proper heifer development.

    Properly managing yearling heifer reproduction is the first step toward reproductive efficiency.

    Your goal is to manage heifers so they’ll conceive early by reducing the age of puberty, shortening the time from puberty to conception and increasing fertility.

  • Trembling Lady Bearcats shake off Trimble

    CARROLLTON – Kaci Currens was still shaking.

    It had been almost 15 minutes since she had hit three free throws with a half-second left on the game clock, giving Anderson County a heart-stopping 50-49 win over a vastly underrated Trimble County team Monday night.

  • UPDATED: Regional draw pits Lady Bearcats against Trimble in opener

    Updated: Feb. 28, 2:45 p.m.
    The Anderson County girls' basketball team will embark on its quest for a third straight Eighth Region championship when the Lady Bearcats take on Trimble County in the first round of the regional tournament Monday, March 2 at 6 p.m.

  • Shelby ends Lady Bearcats' district reign

    TAYLORSVILLE – Shelby County withstood an early Anderson County punch, then methodically overcame the Lady Bearcats with a 48-38 decision in the girls' 30th District Tournament Friday night at Spencer County High School.

    Shelby ended Anderson's six-year stranglehold on the district title even though the Lady Bearcats exploded to a 9-1 lead just over three minutes into the game.

  • Late layup lifts Shelby past Bearcats in district opener

    TAYLORSVILLE -- Jordan Armstrong scored on a layup with 4 seconds left to provide the winning margin for Shelby County as the Rockets defeated Anderson County, 75-73, in the semi-final round of the 30th District Tournament Thursday night at Spencer County High School.

    Shelby moves on to play Collins in Saturday's district championship game while Anderson saw its season come to an end at 16-10.

  • SNOW MAKES DISTRICT MORE UNCERTAIN

    What was already being billed as the most unpredictable 30th District Touranment in memory got even more unpredictable last week.

    The snow and ice that moved through Kentucky last week played havoc with schools and made the tournament, which was to have begun Monday night on the girls’ side, a bigger mystery than what it already was.

    The Shelby County girls were to have played Spencer County Monday with the Anderson girls playing Collins Tuesday. Both games were scheduled to tip off after press time for this edition of The Anderson News.
