  • Get tough on owners of dilapidated homes

    We generally loathe the idea of government at any level sticking its bureaucratic nose into people’s lives, but will gladly support any effort from county government to take action against the owners of abandoned, dilapidated homes.
    A perfect example is the home on Hammond Road that is the subject of an article on page A1. It has been abandoned for years, has bags of trash falling out of its broken front windows, has floors and ceilings that are caving in, and is an eyesore of the first order.

  • Cub Scouts visit The Anderson News
  • Finding their voices

    Jerrica Drury, 8, and Layne Barlow, 7, are like most other little girls.
    They like school (both are in second grade at Emma B. Ward Elementary), have a lot of friends, love candy and ice cream, enjoy board games, play baseball, are a little giddy and a little shy around strangers.
    Full of energy, their eyes light up when they giggle and at times they are even a little mischievous.

  • Analysis: Questions aplenty as Beasmore trial begins

    Will she get $1.5 million, nothing at all or somewhere in between?
    That is the primary — but far from the only — question that will likely be answered in a sexual harassment trial scheduled to begin 9 a.m. Monday in Anderson Circuit Court.

  • Owners told trash-filled house must go

    The owners of an abandoned house on Hammond Road were notified Friday that it’s a fire hazard and they have 10 days to remove it or face fines or jail time.
    That news couldn’t come soon enough for Kristyle Renfro, a neighbor who said she’s sick of rodents coming from the crumbling house and infesting hers.
    “I have had an unbelievably large amount of mice in my house that have come from that house,” Renfro said while standing in her front yard last week. “I have seen all kinds of animals come from there.

  • COLUMN: Four Final thoughts on college hoops

    Well, now, wasn’t that fun?

    Obviously, it would have been more of a blast for most people in these parts if a different shade of blue had been playing Monday night, but Kentucky’s run to the Final Four was what sports are really supposed to be.

    For Kentucky fans, at least, watching a team morph from marginal to mighty was as much as anything since, oh, 1998 or so. And you can bet that it won’t take 13 more years.

    So with that, I will leave you with four final thoughts on the college basketball season.

  • TENNIS: Young Bearcats looking to make regional noise

    Despite losing four of seven starters from last season, expectations are high around the Anderson County boys’ tennis team.


    “I expect we will have our ups and downs this year with young talent, but come regional tournament time, I believe we will be a team that most will not want to face in the early rounds,” says Anderson co-coach Jeremy Cook.

  • SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Lady Bearcats stumble in Oldham tourney

    While Anderson County got a leg up on the seeding race for the 30th District Tournament with wins over Collins and Shelby County, the rest of the Lady Bearcats’ week left much to be desired, according to Anderson coach Brian Glass.


    The Lady Bearcats dropped three of four games, including one to regional foe Henry County in the Oldham County Spring Break Classic on Saturday.
