  • COLUMN: Precinct moves will benefit disabled

    Column as I see ’em …
    Let’s kick this week off with some kudos for a change.
    Topping the list is a shout out to the board of elections for doing the obvious and moving the remaining polling places from the rural areas into the city.
    I know that isn’t sitting well with some folks who live in the western part of the county and other areas because they now have to drive into town to vote.
    They like the tradition of voting within their own precinct, and have done so since Hector was a pup.

  • COLUMN: Quantity over quality?

    When it comes to clothing in the Brock household, there is a constant debate about quantity vs. quality between my husband and me.
    This debate isn’t always verbalized, sometimes it’s internalized, but we like to give each other a lot of good-spirited grief.
    I’m a sucker for a good deal, so, as you can probably imagine, I’m on the quantity side of the discussion. I would rather spend less on items individually and get a whole heck of a lot of them.

  • COLUMN: Tips for growing popcorn and sweet corn

    Well, the best news I can share with you is that spring is only 53 days away. I am so ready for warm. Even the dogs are complaining about the cold, in their own way. It’s got to be a pretty inviting scent to get them to roam very far from the door. When the door opens they make a beeline straight for the wood stove. It’s too funny.

  • COLUMN: Kentucky should say no to slots without a vote

    The slot-machine-at-the-race-track crowd is trying to run daylight by the rooster. They got a Frankfort judge to rule that slot machines with pictures of dead horses can be placed in the race tracks when slot machines with pictures of cherries, oranges and lemons cannot.
    Obviously, that is a distinction without the difference, but the governor and the slot-machine-at-the-race-track crowd will go to any lengths to sock the people of this state with over $800 million in annual gambling losses, most of which will go to rich race track owners.

  • Junior Miss earns awards at state program

    Anderson County’s 2011 Junior Miss Allie White competed at the state program earlier this month and brought home two awards.

  • Thousands raised for Fairgrounds Drive-In

    The owners of Fairgrounds Drive-In got a major shot in the arm Saturday toward getting the restaurant reopened.
    A chili supper raised just short of $2,000 to help the Riley family purchase new equipment and supplies to replace items that were destroyed in a New Year’s Eve fire.
    “The response was just wonderful, and proves what a wonderful community we have,” said American Legion Auxiliary member Nettie Halvorson, who helped organize the event.
    Halvorson said the event drew a large crowd despite cold temperatures and a UK basketball game.

  • FRMC earns recognition for nursing excellence

    Dozens of nurses, several doctors and members of Frankfort Regional Medical Center’s administration filed into a conference room Wednesday afternoon and sat awaiting a very important phone call.

  • District court proceedings

    Judge Donna Dutton heard the following cases during District Court proceedings Jan. 3.
    Jason W. Bentley, hearing, theft by unlawful taking – convert fines and costs to jail time, five days to serve (credit time served).
    Traci L. Stief, hearing, operating motor vehicle under the influence, failure of non-owner operator to maintain required insurance, operating on suspended/revoked operators license – contempt of court, five days to serve, convert fines and costs to jail time, 30 days to serve or pay $903 (credit time served).

  • Disc golfers really do Slide and Glide

    It would not be often that a golfer's score on a single hole would be above the temperature outside. It would be even more rare to find a golfer who would not be too upset over such a scenario.

    But the second annual Slide and Glide tournament put on by the Lawrenceburg Disc Golf Association on Saturday might be the exception.

    When a group of 32 golfers teed off on the Anderson County Community Park course, the temperature stood at 6 degrees. By the time they had finished 36 holes, it had warmed up to a balmy 26 degrees, according to Rex Richardson, a spokesman for the association.
