  • No penance for $400K mistake

    It’s a downright shame that those on the Anderson County Board of Health who voted to approve the new health department building near Walmart can’t be held personally responsible for squandering $400,000 in taxpayer money.
    Of course unlike the taxpayers who have no choice but to pay for their mistakes, they’re immune from such accountability.

  • YKK product providing shelter for Japanese

    Local employees of YKK Snap Fastener America say they are proud that a product they developed is making a real difference in peoples’ lives.
    Who would have thought that a little plastic fastener named SNAD, originally made for leisure boats, would end up helping victims of the natural disaster in Japan.     
     On March 11, devastating earthquakes and tsunamis followed by a nuclear emergency struck the Miyagi prefecture in northern Japan. More than 30,000 people have been reported killed and/or missing with thousands more injured.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.”
