  • Thousands raised for Fairgrounds Drive-In

    The owners of Fairgrounds Drive-In got a major shot in the arm Saturday toward getting the restaurant reopened.
    A chili supper raised just short of $2,000 to help the Riley family purchase new equipment and supplies to replace items that were destroyed in a New Year’s Eve fire.
    “The response was just wonderful, and proves what a wonderful community we have,” said American Legion Auxiliary member Nettie Halvorson, who helped organize the event.
    Halvorson said the event drew a large crowd despite cold temperatures and a UK basketball game.

  • Disc golfers really do Slide and Glide

    It would not be often that a golfer's score on a single hole would be above the temperature outside. It would be even more rare to find a golfer who would not be too upset over such a scenario.

    But the second annual Slide and Glide tournament put on by the Lawrenceburg Disc Golf Association on Saturday might be the exception.

    When a group of 32 golfers teed off on the Anderson County Community Park course, the temperature stood at 6 degrees. By the time they had finished 36 holes, it had warmed up to a balmy 26 degrees, according to Rex Richardson, a spokesman for the association.

  • Owen rips Lady Bearcats

    Only 28 seconds remained when the bench emptied Saturday afternoon. In high school sports, that is the equivalent of Red Auerbach’s victory cigar.

    And it was the first time a girls’ basketball team had been able to celebrate early at Anderson County in some time.

    Owen, now 13-3, became the first team to beat Anderson on its home court this season with the 57-44 romp. The Rebels are also the first Eighth Region team to beat Anderson anywhere since the 2009 regional final when Simon Kenton routed the Lady Bearcats.
