  • Anderson County celebrates Homecoming

    Anderson County celebrated homecoming with the annual parade through Lawrenceburg on Sept. 23. These are some scenes from the parade.

  • Big win, but not big enough

    FRANKFORT – Every time Franklin County cleared a ball over the top or took its sweet time to get things moving Monday night, it was a lesson to remind Anderson County of the pecking order in the 25th District of girls' high school soccer.

    The scoreboard recorded that Anderson earned an impressive 4-1 win over a team that was 10-3-1 heading into the match.

    But it was not impressive enough.

  • Fall here but archery season still open

    I don’t know about the rest of you folks around central Kentucky, but I have a hard time remembering the last time we actually had fall when fall was supposed to actually be happening. 

  • Rusted out bridge closed

    Rusted and swayed beams beneath a bridge at the Anderson-Franklin county line have forced state Department of Transportation officials to close it indefinitely, county highway foreman Chip Chambers announced Monday afternoon.

    The bridge, located on Lanes Mill Road, was downgraded following a state inspection earlier this year and restricted to vehicles weighing 3 tons or less, Chambers said.

  • Bearcats roll past Grant in district opener

    Anderson County jumped to a quick 23-0 lead, then cruised to a 46-7 homecoming win over visiting Grant County on Friday night.

    The Bearcats drove 70 yards on the game's opening series with Ethan Kelly going for the touchdown from three yards out. Kelly added an interception return for a touchdown, then after Steven Sims sacked Grant quarterback Nathan Davis for a safety, Seth Carmichael's 7-yard pass to Neal Wells made it 23-0 with 3:30 still to play in the first quarter.

  • COLUMN: Taking more heat from dot-edu types

    What the heck is it with you dot-edu types who keep bashing me over the head for a short blurb about the local library’s finances in my editorial a few weeks ago?

    The Sept. 1 letters to the editor featured a scathing rebuke of the blurb from a local grade school teacher who doubles as the library board’s secretary.

    This week’s featured letter from Russell Barnett — he of a dot-edu e-mail address, too — does more of the same, including a demand that I suspend myself as editor.

  • Letters to the editor - 9.15

    Carlson should suspend himself for editorials on library, teacher

    To the editor:

    Call them as I see them. Many of your editorials are prefaced with this motto, but your editorials on Aug. 25 and Sept. 1 bring into question what you see.
