  • Firefighters extinguish Lawrenceburg industrial park fire

    Firefighters reduced a mountain of flaming vinyl material to smoldering ashes after battling a massive fire Friday near the Dlubak Glass Company in the Lawrenceburg industrial park.

    A four-story tall pile of vinyl and glass — what appeared to be the material that prevents windshields from shattering like normal glass — burst into flames at about noon Friday.

    Emergency management asked all city and county residents to conserve water as firefighters tried to control the blaze. Residents were able to resume normal water usage later that afternoon.

  • BREAKING: Industrial park fire appears to be extinguished, source says

    Lawrenceburg industrial park fire appears to be largely out and the burning pile is now just smoldering as of 2:30 p.m., a source at the scene of the fire said.

    Emergency Management Director Bart Powell says there have been no evacuations in Anderson County mostly because of the weather.

    The wind was taking the smoke high in the sky, at least a 100 feet up, and the smoke only touched the ground once, Powell said.

  • Jesus alone brings true peace for the distressed

    I read a story about a man named Bill. His wife left him and he became so depressed that his doctor sent him for psychiatric help. Bill told the psychiatrist his difficulties and surmised, “Life isn’t worth living.” The psychiatrist retorted, “Don’t be so rash, Bill; let work be your recovery. I want you to totally plunge yourself in your work. Now, what do you do for a living?” Bill looked even more distraught as he replied, “I clean out septic tanks.” So much for the power of positive thinking!
