  • Slingin’ some mud

    It won’t be pretty, it won’t be clean, but it sure is going to be fun.
    A mud bog to benefit the local Shop With a Cop program and the Kentucky Sheriff’s Association Boys and Girls Camp is scheduled for Saturday at Anderson Community Park.
    The brainchild of Deputy Tony Likins, the bog will begin at 1 p.m. Registration for competitors is $20 and begins at 10 a.m. Admission is $5, and children 10 and under will be admitted free.

  • Man in coma following mule wagon wreck

    A Lawrenceburg man remains in critical condition Tuesday after a mule wagon accident last Wednesday on Paxton Road.
    Brian “Little Brian” Perry, 21, and a friend, Josh “Worm” Thompson, were driving the wagon hitched to a team of pony mules when something spooked the animals.
    The buggy turned over at least once and landed in a ditch, seriously injuring Perry, who was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
    Thompson was treated and released.

  • Lawrenceburg remembers fallen heroes

    Thirteen more flags were raised Sunday to honor Kentucky soldiers killed in the war on terrorism as American Legion Post 34 and its Auxiliary commemorated Memorial Day.
    The hour-long, somber ceremony featured a keynote address by Brig. Gen. Steven Hogan, who honored those who have given their lives in defense of the United States.
    “God bless and care for these brave souls,” he said.

  • County buys old health building

    Shift change at the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office often resembles the old 1960s gag when a dozen or so people would pile into a tiny car in an effort to break some world record or another.
    With four or more deputies sharing each desk and scarcely enough room to turn around, the office is too small by half, but that soon won’t be the case.
    The Anderson County Fiscal Court pulled a surprising move Friday morning and voted unanimously to end overcrowding at the sheriff’s office by purchasing the former health department building on Main Street.

  • Man in coma following mule wagon wreck

    Want to help?
    Sherry Perry is asking people to pray for her son, Brian, who remains in a medication-induced coma following his accident last Wednesday on Paxton Road.
    Because he has no health insurance, a fund has been established at Century Bank under the name “Little Brian” to help cover his medical expenses.

  • Rebel flag debated for cemetery

    Rules dictating what can and cannot be placed on gravesites in Lawrenceburg Cemetery will likely be loosened when the city council meets June 13, and could include allowing placement of Confederate flags.

  • Ratliff off to UK

    In a perfect world, Ryan Ratliff would have signed his NCAA national letter-of-intent in blue ink. It would have matched his blood.


    And last Wednesday, the Anderson County high jumper officially became a Kentucky Wildcat in a signing ceremony at the high school, inking with the school that has had his heart ever since he was old enough to know the difference between a three-pointer and a slam dunk.


    “UK has always been my favorite school,” Ratliff said. “Once I got the green light from UK, I was set on that.”

  • Kentucky All-Stars here Monday

    It might be the greatest accumulation of basketball talent to ever take the floor at Anderson County High School when the Kentucky All-stars come to town Monday night.

  • BASEBALL: Anderson falls in regional opener

    INDEPENDENCE – Anderson County showed up for the Eighth Region baseball tournament. Bearcat baseball did not.


    North Oldham scored four times in the top of the first, then took advantage of numerous Bearcat mistakes to coast to an 8-3 win in the opening game of the tournament, being played at Simon Kenton High School.

  • COLUMN: District title not a suprise

    There was a time not too long ago when Anderson County baseball had a rather simple view of postseason success.


    Basically, it was draw opposite Shelby County in the district tournament and just to make the regional. There were exceptions to that, of course. The most notable was a district championship in 1988, but that is the brightest light for the program between regional tournament victories in 1983 and 1999.
