  • Moved your iris, lilies and other perennials yet? Better get busy

    One of my most favorite things about the farm is the view that I have at sunset. The air has cooled to a pleasant degree and watching the sun send up its last horrah fills the sky with ribbons of color to rival any masterpiece.
    The dogs love to run and romp in the yard, taking turns to come say hello and get a good scratching. It clears my mind of the day’s events and helps me appreciate all that I have.

  • Time is ripe to put pumpkins, apples to good use

    Pumpkins and apples are at the Anderson County Farmer’s Market now. You can also purchase them directly from several local farms.
    A good carving pumpkin doesn’t usually make a good eating pumpkin. The carving pumpkins are tough and a little bland. Pie or sweet pumpkins are best for cooking and baking, as they have a more tender rind and are less fibrous.

  • Misery Manor open Friday, Saturday at Eagle Lake

    Misery Manor got off to a frighteningly good start when it debuted last week, and be open again Friday and Saturday.
    A fundraiser for Sheriff Troy Young’s Shop With a Cop program, Misery Manor will continue scaring people throughout October, including Friday and Saturday from 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Eagle Lake Convention Center.
    Admission is $5 for the haunted house that features legendary Hollywood psychopaths such as Leatherface, Freddie Kruger and others.
    Young estimated nearly 500 people went through the haunted house during its debut last week.

  • Burgoo, ‘like Daniel Boone did it’

    Bring your own bowl.
    Say that to longtime Lawrenceburg residents as the leaves begin to turn and they’ll know it’s time to eat burgoo at the annual Farm Bureau membership meeting.
    This year’s meeting is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 14 at Eagle Lake Convention Center, with burgoo served at 5:30 p.m.
    Although the meeting has changed locations through the decades, one constant remains the same: If it’s burgoo at the Farm Bureau meeting, a Warford is doing the cooking.

  • Hellard enters judge race for Family Court

    Lawrenceburg attorney Marie Hellard has spent the better part of the past two decades representing clients in Family Court.
    Now she wants to preside over it.
    Hellard filed a letter of intent to run for Family Court judge last week in the 53rd Judicial Circuit which includes Anderson, Shelby and Spencer counties.
    Judge John David Myles is the incumbent and has held the position since Jan. 1, 2007.

  • Hahn enters 2014 race for county clerk

    Mud.
    That’s what Lee Hahn says he won’t sling in his attempt to become Anderson County’s next clerk.
    A lifelong registered Democrat who has served the past 10 years on the Anderson County Board of Education, Hahn officially announced his candidacy last week for county clerk, an office he said he decided to seek about year and a half ago.
    Hahn said the reason he wants to run has nothing to do with the way current clerk, Republican Jason Denny, is running the office.

  • Cram goes to trial next year for 2011 murder

    A trial date was set Tuesday morning for the man charged with murdering a Clay Burgin Road woman nearly two years ago, but it won’t be until next year.
    Terrance Cram, who remains incarcerated in the Shelby County Detention Center since he was apprehended in June of 2011 on charges that he murdered Tena McNeely in January of that year, will now stand trial May 12, 2014. A final pretrial conference is scheduled for April 8, 2014.

  • FOOTBALL: State's top rusher visits Friday

    Anderson County's defensive game plan for Friday night could be an exercise in futility before it ever gets tested.

    The mission? Stop Devin Taylor.

    The odds of that happening? Oh, roughly equal to the chances of going through the grocery store checkout line without reading something about the Kardashians.

    It ain't gonna happen.

  • FOOTBALL: Nothing fancy, nothing funny

    VERSAILLES – There would be nothing strange happening at Woodford County Stadium Friday night.

    Anderson County saw to that.

    Well, almost nothing. Woodford County got hit with a delay of game penalty when the Yellow Jackets' homecoming festivities went a bit too long at halftime, but all that did was shorten Anderson's march to the inevitable, a 38-3 romp past Woodford in high school football action.

  • COLUMN: New water tower logo a welcome change

    Notes written on a water tower...

    OK, not really, but I can't let the fall sports season go any further without commenting on the new face watching Anderson County sporting events.

    In case you have not been to any Bearcat football or soccer games there is a permanent spectator to the northwest of Hollie Warford Stadium and from this corner, it is a great addition.
