  • Bee garden great way to give back to earth

    Sunrise to sunset, summer is awesome.

  • Who do you blame when good kids go bad?

    Thirty-five seconds.
    The video kept recording the humiliation for about 10 minutes, but I had seen enough to convince me.  
    What the eye sees, it can’t erase.
    So I procrastinated on viewing the infamous “Making the Bus Monitor Cry” for days. I knew about how horrible it was, and believed all of the outrage.  
    I don’t consider myself a member of the morality police, and typically err on the side of free speech.
    But the middle school boys portrayed in the video were not exercising First Amendment rights.

  • Preparing for return of ‘Flim-Flam Man’

    With our array of taxing districts poised to set tax rates later this summer, it seems only fitting that a 1960s movie titled “The Flim-Flam Man” included scenes shot right here in Lawrenceburg
    That movie featured a pair of drifters who teamed up to gain the confidence of locals while bilking them out of their money. The key, of course, was to never let the local rubes know that they were having their pockets picked, which isn’t all that different than the way the system to raise property taxes works.

    Chinese or “sky” lanterns may light up the night sky with a gentle glow, but these popular floating globes can also spark unintentional and potentially dangerous fires.
    County fire chief Mike Barnes only saw four or six lanterns in the sky last year, but says six lanterns are enough to cause six separate house fires.  

  • Lane wins 2012 Miss Lawrenceburg crown

    Chelsea Lane loves to hunt, but winning the 2012 Miss Lawrenceburg Fair and Horse Show title on Monday night outstrips even her most prized trophy buck.  
    “You can mount a deer, but I think it’s more fun to look at a crown than a deer,” she laughed.
    Both hunting and pageants are big parts of Chelsea’s life, her father Tony Lane said.
