    Give Conway a chance in November

    To the editor:

    I’m taking this opportunity to thank the many kind people who have opened doors for us during this campaign for the Nov. 2 general election.

    Now I’d like to ask a question: If computers, Facebook, YouTube and Topix could be weighed on the left hand, and experience, common sense, honesty and integrity could be weighed on the right, which hand would get your vote?

    The right hand will get my vote every time. I consider [judge-executive candidate] John Wayne Conway to be that right hand.

  • Murder suspect pleads not guilty

    With a dozen family members of the woman he is accused of killing glaring at him, a shackled and visibly nervous Gary Bancroft made his first live appearance in an Anderson County courtroom Tuesday morning.

    Bancroft, the Bardstown Road man accused of slashing to death his girlfriend, Frances Renee Mobley, pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and tampering with physical evidence.

  • COLUMN: Automatic

    We have almost come to think of them as automatic, these extra point things in football.

    Line it up and kick. You can count on that one point as surely as you can count on a politician lying.

    Unless, of course, something goes haywire. You can hit 100 straight extra points and no one thinks a thing about it. Miss one, and everyone remembers. It's just the nature of the beast.

    Just ask Bullitt Central. And ask Anderson County, for that matter.

  • Fire ravages Fox Creek Road home

    A Fox Creek Road home was almost completely destroyed in a blaze Monday evening.

    Firefighters were dispatched to the scene at 1446 Fox Creek Road next to the Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course around 5:40 p.m. Monday, said Anderson County Fire Chief Mike Barnes.

    Firefighters spent a total of five hours putting out the fire, which started when a resident in the house was repairing plumbing.

    “He took all the steps necessary to prevent a fire,” Barnes said.

  • Faster than a speeding Bullitt

    There is probably no truth to the rumor that Blake Curtsinger lined the Anderson County football field last week.

    But there is little doubt that Curtsinger practically owned that piece of real estate Friday night to lead Anderson to a 28-27 overtime win over Bullitt Central.

    The junior ran for 113 yards and a touchdown, caught a scoring pass, and helped block a crucial extra point in overtime that turned out to be the break Anderson needed. For good measure, Curtsinger was the holder when Bill Rose drilled the extra point that was the difference in the final margin.

  • Puppy killer suspect remains at large

    A fight with his girlfriend is why a Lawrenceburg man allegedly stomped on her 8-month-old puppy, broke its neck and set it on fire.

    The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office is searching for Paul “Doobie” Dearinger, 40, whose last known address is 1330 Dry Dock Road.

    That location is where Dearinger allegedly killed the dog — a mixed breed named Buster — on Sept. 26.

    Dearinger is facing a cruelty to animals charge, a Class A misdemeanor, according to police.

  • Drury unveils YMCA, outdoor pool plan for Anderson County

    An estimated $12 million and a population shortfall are what stand between Anderson County and a YMCA facility, but a judge-executive hopeful says she isn’t letting those obstacles get in her way.

    Donna Drury, a non-affiliated candidate, spelled out her admittedly rudimentary plans to bring a YMCA, along with an outdoor swimming pool, to Anderson County if she’s elected judge-executive.

    The outdoor pool and YMCA are separate issues, but Drury discussed both during a news conference last Thursday morning in front of the Anderson County Courthouse.
