  • Kindling Christmas spirit

    The City of Lawrenceburg is providing several chances to get citizens in the holiday spirit this weekend.

  • ‘Flim-Flam’ director gone, not forgotten

    The director who brought Hollywood to Lawrenceburg is gone, but for those here who knew him, he will never be forgotten.

  • No mall required

    Black Friday has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean shoppers no longer can find great deals next week at Dowling Hall.

  • Deputies to serve dinner Friday

    Deputies with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office will serve up more than a good time this Friday at Tony’s Barn.
    The deputies will be in uniform waiting tables from 5 p.m. until close for the “Dinner with the Deputies” event.
    All tips collected will benefit the Shop with a Cop program.
    All donations are tax deductible. Checks should be made out to Anderson County DARE with “Shop with a Cop” in the memo line.

  • Chamber gala is Saturday

    The Anderson County Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Christmas Gala on Saturday night at Eagle Lake Convention Center.

    Tickets are $25 for chamber members; $30 for non-members, and will be available at the door or by calling 839-5564.
    Entertainment will be provided by musical group Nearly Nervous, which plays blues, reggae and rock.

  • COLUMN: Hatch Act violation? Look somewhere else

    Here’s why fools should stick to the business of being fools and leave the serious work to those who know how to do it.
    Following the general election, I used this space to blow off steam about those who placed what amounted to garbage in our drop box in an effort to anonymously smear a candidate for judge-executive.
    From personal financial documents to outrageous claims about his private life, these people were looking for someone to do their dirty work, apparently for fear of soiling the reputations of their chosen candidate.

  • COLUMN: How common is courtesy?

    What is common courtesy? Well, I can tell you what it’s not.
    A little over a week ago, I was approached by one of our readers who was particularly riled up about customers who don’t tip appropriately at restaurants.
    Readily admitting that she wasn’t a nice person and saying I could most likely approach the issue with more tact than she would, she suggested I write a column about common courtesy. The little things people do that should get noticed, she said.

  • COLUMN: Waiting for Tea Partiers to burn their social security cards

    A big shout out to all my liberal Democrat friends in Anderson County who voted in this last election.
    There must be what, at least four or five of us now? Band together, brothers and sisters. Don’t lose hope.
    But we have to give it to the Republicans, however. They certainly know how to make themselves look good, and have no apologies for any blunders.

  • COLUMN: Gardening keeps us close to the earth

    Happy December. The 12th month has arrived and winter officially begins on the 21st, the same day we have the full cold moon.
    The winter solstice means it’s the shortest day of the year, with only nine hours and four minutes of daylight. To top it off, we have an eclipse of the moon taking place around 1:30 the same morning. What a great way to end the year.
