Today's News

  • Apples are antidote to daylight loss

    Daylight’s a burnin’. Yes, I know that’s grammatically incorrect, but it’s what my family has said for years.
    My father, Jack, liked to say it to get us kids motivated. The saying is especially poignant this time of year. We just lost a whole hour. Well, not yet, but we’re headed in that direction.

  • Turner first grade students offer news fit to print

    First graders are champions of the non sequitur.
    They’ve perfected the art of the artless transition. One minute, you could be asking them what they think the tools of being a reporter are.
    The next, they’re describing the most efficient and safest way to enter a burning building.
    Since I cover education for The Anderson News, I’m in and out of schools fairly often, but unfortunately, I don’t often spend unlimited time with students.

  • Harold Todd is no Tea Party whack-job

    Column as I see ’em ...
    Lawrenceburg’s Harold Todd might light a candle before the altar of Tea Party darling Sen. Ted Cruz each night before going to bed, but I doubt it.
    Yet a column by Al Smith in Sunday’s edition of the Lexington “Herald-Leader” would lead readers to believe that anyone associated with the lawsuits against several Kentucky libraries is a Cruz-loving Tea Partier bent on wreaking havoc on America — or at least Kentucky’s stable of authors.

  • Sea offers thoughts, enters race for 6th District magistrate

    One of the 6th Magisterial District’s strongest advocates is now aiming to represent it on the Anderson County Fiscal Court.
    Steve Sea, 60, said last week that he intends to file papers to run for the office Wednesday (today), the first day candidates for the 2014 general election can file for office.
    Kenny Barnett, a fellow Democrat elected in 2010 when then-incumbent John Wayne Conway was elected judge-executive, currently holds the seat and as of Tuesday morning had not announced his intentions to seek re-election.

  • Is that you, Jase?

    Now that her husband is a certified celebrity, it’s safe to say that Jessica McGuire will no longer mind cleaning his beard hair out of the bathroom drain.
    But she will have to become accustomed to squealing young girls begging him for photographs, not to mention him being recognized as one of TV’s biggest celebrities.

  • Machine-gunner, soldier, mom

    Brenda Daniels, National Guard military police officer, kept watch from her perch by the machine gun at the back of the Jeep.
    Her supervisors put her in charge of the gun, probably because the thought of firing the machine gun would scare her, Daniels recalled Monday morning from the safety of her home on Washington Street.
    It didn’t.
    She was scared, but not because the National Guard reservist couldn’t do her job. The chaos in Miami frightened Daniels.
    The screams.
    The gunshots.

  • Doctor free to practice after restrictions lifted

    The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure lifted in June all conditions imposed on a new Lawrenceburg doctor’s medical license about eight years after it discovered the doctor engaged in conduct that violated state laws.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats face tough first-round opponent

    It is likely there will be plenty of blowouts in the first round of the state high school football playoffs this weekend.

    It is also quite likely one of them won't be taking place at Hollie Warford Stadium.

  • FOOTBALL: Titanic nightmare in Shelbyville

    SHELBYVILLE – Anderson County never expected all of the Halloween activities to be delayed for a day last week, but the Bearcats found more than trick-or-treating would be pushed back a day.

    Apparently nightmares were postponed by Thursday's rain and wind as well. That can be the only explanation for what happened to the Bearcats last Friday.

  • COLUMN:Bearcats look for playoff redemption after woodshed whipping

    When my grandmother would tell me to go get a switch, I knew exactly what was coming.

    And I was hurting before I reached up on that old weeping willow tree to break one off. Years later, I still hurt thinking about it. If you ever had the experience, you can empathize.

    But the idea behind setting my pants on fire with that flexible little switch was simply to make sure I didn't violate the rules again and to make me better.
