  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bearcats take thriller from Shelby

    SHELBYVILLE – Rivalry contests are supposed to induce nail-biting, hair-pulling and just about every other form of self-destruction but last Thursday's volleyball match between Anderson County and Shelby County might have taken things to some new extremes.

    The Lady Bearcats outlasted Shelby in a key 30th District contest, 3-2 in games and did so on a night when neither team forged a lead of more than seven points. Anderson finally did that in the tie-breaker, jumping out to an 8-1 lead in the fifth game.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Bearcat golfers ready to take on Bowling Green

    Three days after the fact, the reality of the Anderson County boys' golf team qualifying for the state tournament still had not totally taken hold of the Bearcats.

    “It is a lifelong dream. It hasn't really sunk in yet,” senior Nick Wilson said Thursday, as the Bearcats gathered at Wild Turkey Trace for a practice.
