  • Poker run raises $5,000 for Bobby Best

    Bobby Best is one of those people you can’t keep indoors, his son Robbie Best said Saturday.
    Robbie, waiting for kickstands to go up at Cummins Irish Pub during the Bobby Best Poker Run fundraiser last Saturday morning, said his dad had another surgery last Friday night, but was recovering well enough to be moved out of the ICU into a progressive care unit.
     “Like usual, kicking and fighting, trying to get out of there,” Robbie said.

  • Five things your children may not recognize from 1973

    Because I work for an Anderson County institution that has been in operation since the late 1800s, I feel it’s my duty to appreciate the reporters, designers and proofreaders who came before me by taking a trip into The Anderson News archives.  
    I recently got my hands on a bound archive of the paper from 1973, and I realized something.
    Well, two things.

  • Trying to explain the unexplainable

    Good people die nearly every day in Anderson County.
    From age to disease to accidents, people beloved by their friends and families are taken too soon no matter their age, leaving mourners in their wake and questions about why God takes them from our lives.
    Most, through no fault of their own, go largely unnoticed outside of their immediate circle of loved ones. Others, for whatever reason, leave a deeper impression on those around them — not for any tangible reason, just because they do.

  • Police: Truck driver charged with murder used pot hours before wreck

    The truck driver charged with murder in the vehicular death of Marie Garmon used marijuana in the hours leading up to the wreck last September, according to a report on file in Anderson Circuit Court.

    The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office held its own version of High Mass on Sunday when the sheriff and his deputies torched an estimated $200,000 worth of marijuana plants they seized from the Ninevah area.

    Taylor said the confiscated marijuana was obviously grown by someone with experience.

  • Board bucks legal advice, prays anyway

    Not long after school board member Roger McDowell closed his prayer in an “Amen,” the crowd gathered at Monday night’s board meeting responded with a round of applause.
    “If this offends you, you’re welcome to leave,” McDowell said to the crowd a few minutes before school board president James Sargent officially opened the school board meeting at 7 p.m.

  • Burgoo Festival, cook-off set for this weekend

    Jesse Sanford has something up his sleeve for this year’s Burgoo Cook-off, but the two-time defending champion isn’t revealing any secrets.
    Scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lawrenceburg Green, this year’s cook-off will feature Sanford’s team from Four Roses, archrivals from Wild Turkey and Atmos Energy, along with newcomers from Farmers Bank and Dudley Darnell and Dudley Darnell Jr. with Darnell’s Old Timey Burgoo.

  • Man busted for stealing poker run cash

    Michael W. Cinnamon, 32, of Lawrenceburg was charged with one count second degree disorderly conduct and one count theft by unlawful taking, according to Sgt. Chris Beach of the city police department.

  • COLUMN: Bearcats living up to pre-season expectations

    We're four games into Anderson County's 2013 football season.

    There's still a lot of football to be played – the Bearcats are hoping for 11 more games – but that is enough of a sample to see just how good Anderson really is and to if the pre-season hype was justified.

    Even though there have been some expected rough spots and a few stretches where the Bearcats appeared to relax or not concentrate as a championship team should, it says here that the headline on the front of our pre-season football issue four weeks ago was warranted.
