  • ‘Brianna’s Mutt Strut’ scheduled for May 7

    A dog walk titled “Brianna’s Mutt Strut” in the memory of the late Brianna Borwig is scheduled for Saturday, May 7 from noon to 2 p.m. at the county park, organizers said.
    The walk will benefit the Anderson County Humane Society and is being held in memory of Brianna who, at age 13, died from a brain tumor.
    “Brianna was a girl with a big heart for animals,” her family said. “She wanted to be a veterinarian or animal rescue worker.”
    The event will include bracelets and T-shirts to benefit the Humane Society.

  • Payback is a …

    A woman known by friends, family and coworkers to be among Anderson County’s foremost pranksters received her just deserts last Friday afternoon.
    The conspirators — who out of fear of retribution spoke on the condition of anonymity —took Cheri Johnson’s car from behind where she works on Main Street, parked it in front of the county courthouse and plastered it with Post-it notes before wrapping it in several layers of industrial-strength cellophane.

  • Health board to ponder massive tax rate hike, cuts in staff, services

    When the new $2 million health department building opens next month, it will do so with less employees providing less services unless a sizeable tax rate increase is passed Wednesday night.
    Public Health Director Brandon Hurley is expected to outline four tax rate options when the Anderson County Board of Health meets at 6:30 p.m. at the community building in the county park.
    The meeting is open to the public.

  • BASEBALL: Ailing Case makes Spencer bats sick

    TAYLORSVILLE – Landon Case was a bit under the weather but he made Spencer County’s bats sick.

    The junior right-hander went the distance, scattering five hits in a 6-2 win last Tuesday. The victory guaranteed Anderson can do no worse than a two-seed in the 30th District Tournament next month. Case dominated Spencer, getting his fourth win in five decisions.

    And he was not 100 percent.

    “I started feeling bad yesterday,” Case said of what was called a stomach virus.

  • Kentucky All-Stars a matter of pride

    On paper, the Kentucky All-Stars have about as much chance against their Indiana counterparts this summer as a Shetland pony in the Kentucky Derby.

  • COLUMN:What in the world are they thinking?

    Sometimes you just have to wonder WHAT are people really thinking?


    We had two such incidents in these parts last week that just made you scratch your head, then contemplate, then shake your head again.


    First, there was the latest round of talks about a possible renovation or replacement of Rupp Arena in Lexington.


    You have got to be kidding me.

  • Lady Rams in action

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg's softball team played Lakeside last Thursday.

  • TRACK: Bearcats can't get warm at Heart of the Bluegrass


    Suffice it to say the Heart of the Bluegrass track meet was not a heart-warming experience for Anderson County on Saturday.

  • Young Lady Bearcats drop two during rugged week

    Anderson County softball might be trying to set a record for the youngest lineup ever in varsity softball.


    No official records are really kept but one would be hard pressed to find a high school varsity team starting a pair of eighth-graders and a sixth-grader. There are no seniors and only a pair of juniors on the roster.


    But somehow, Anderson is holding together against the perennially tough schedule Lady Bearcat coach Brian Glass puts together. Despite being only 7-8, Anderson is receiving votes for the state’s Top 25.
