  • Middle school teams key to Anderson success

    If you ever doubt the importance of a strong middle school sports program, just check back to March 10. That night, the Anderson County Middle School girls' basketball team took on Clay County in the high school state tournament.

    A dramatic increase in child abuse.
    Families and lives destroyed, seemingly overnight.
    Those problems and worse are headed toward Anderson County like an out-of-control freight train, and the devil driving that train is methamphetamine — meth, for short.
    “You have all the telltale symptoms,” said Daviess County Sheriff Keith Cain, renowned nationwide for his decade-long battle with the drug that in 1999 reared its ugly head and nearly destroyed his county.

    Quality health care for adults who need it may only be a few a months away in Anderson County.
    A group of concerned citizens has banded together to start planning for the Anderson County Community Medical Clinic, which should open some time in 2011.

    The group behind the clinic is a subcommittee of the Health and Nutrition Committee of the Anderson County Community of Promise.

  • COLUMN: We need rain, but we don’t need meth

    Column as I see ’em …
    When the lack of rain turned brown the combination of weeds and grass that make up my lawn, I wasn’t particularly pleased.
    When my wife started compensating for the drought by hosing down her precious flowers and such with pricey city water, I edged toward anger.

  • COLUMN: Have you met our new website?

    A member of The Anderson News team just recently underwent a facelift. No, it wasn’t me. And actually, it wasn’t even a human.
    That’s right, our website, www.theandersonnews.com, is looking a lot better these days — and younger, too, I might add.
    While there is always room for improvement, I think you’ll find it much nicer than anything we’ve had before — not to mention it’s a lot more user-friendly.
