  • COLUMN: There’s plenty to love about fall

    Yesterday was the first official day of fall — one of my favorite seasons.

    Last year, I wrote about how much I love the smell of fall and how my husband pointed out that that means I must love the smell of dead leaves. Well, so be it. But I won’t bore you with that two years in a row.

    Last week, as we were tossing around ideas for a poll question on our website, it occurred to me that fall was literally just a week away. So, we decided to find out what you — our readers — love most about fall.

  • 'I'm in it to win it'

    Rumor became reality Monday when Magistrate John Wayne Conway confirmed he will run for Anderson County judge-executive next year.

    Conway, who represents the county’s 6th District, became the first Democrat to toss his hat in the ring against incumbent Steve Cornish, who has not publicly announced if he will seek re-election. Donna Drury announced that she will run earlier this year as an independent candidate.

    Conway said he has been considering a run for judge-executive for months, and that it’s time to make it official.

  • COLUMN: Fall's onset means it's time to put gardens to bed

    I was driving home just after dusk the other night and caught a whiff of watermelons in the air.

    It was cut grass, but to me it smelled like watermelon. It was like a last hoorah of summer.

    Well, autumn did officially begin yesterday. I know the cycle of life includes all four seasons, but I do hate to see the warm one go. But, go it must.

    I’m sure I’m not the only gardener that dreads putting the garden to bed. Now if I were getting ready to plant, I’d be raring to go.

  • Nothing settled in district soccer matchup

    Nothing was settled in the seedings for the District 25 boys' soccer tournament as Franklin County and Anderson County battled to a 2-2 tie Tuesday night at the Anderson field.

    Anderson's Martin Frantsvog and Franklin's Bryce Burton scored first half goals, then Bearcat Stephen Pulcifer and Flyer Oscar Urbina found the net in the second half. Urbina's game-tying goal came on a free kick with just under nine minutes left in the game.

    Franklin had had two goals taken down in the second half on offside calls.
