  • Boil water advisory lifted

    The boil water advisory, which was issued for Mill Creek Pike last week, has been lifted, the South Anderson Water District announced in a news release.

  • Gillispie enters rehab; court date still Oct. 5

    Former UK basketball coach Billy Gillispie entered an alcohol rehabilitation center in Texas last week, but his Oct. 5 court date here on a DUI charge is still on.

    That’s according Bill Patrick, the Lawrenceburg attorney defending Gillispie against the drunk driving charge he received Aug. 27 near Emma B. Ward Elementary School.

  • Peach expects major test at Henry

    Chances are the mantra around both Anderson County and Henry County this week will be something to the effect of “It only takes 11.”

    Anderson travels to Henry County on Friday night for what could be a major test against one of the state's better Class 3A teams.

    However, many will point to the fact that Anderson is a 5A school and much has a much larger enrollment than Henry. Last year, Anderson enrolled just over 1,200 students while Henry was just under 700.

  • SPORTS BUZZ: UK will win, but it won't be a blowout

    All right, Wildcat fans. Saturday is your day.

    It’s the day you have been waiting for ever since you partied in Memphis while your Little Brother had to decide between Middletown and Valley Station.

    It’s the day you  get a chance to remove that image of John L. Smith strutting across the field -- your field, even -- with a 56-28 win in his pocket.

    It’s the day you get to pay back Bobby Petrino for calling a timeout so he could score one more time even with the game in the bag.

  • Bearcats take second in Bourbon Tourney

    The Anderson County boys' soccer team put on a pair of dominating performances before falling in the championship game of the Stonerside Cup tournament, held at Bourbon County last week. The Bearcats are now 8-3-1 on the season with some big district matchups on the horizon.

    The Bearcats ripped Corbin 5-0 last Tuesday, then blitzed Dixie Heights 10-0 in the second game of the round-robin tournament. Bourbon County, a team Anderson coach Brett Morris described as “fast and athletic,” scored a 4-2 win in what amounted to the championship game of the tourney.

  • COLUMN: Lower the statistics, consider shelter pets

    I love my dog. A simple statement, but so true. For those of you who know me, you know just how true it really is. My dog, Molly, is like my baby… literally.

    I found her abandoned as a small puppy and I fell in love right away. Yes, I’m one of those “idiots” who treats her dog like a family member. And I’m not alone in this category.

  • EDITORIAL: Some students missed historical opportunity

    It’s safe to say that a number of students all across America, even here in Anderson County, missed out on a historic opportunity Tuesday.

    President Barack Obama addressed all of the country’s students through a webcast with one goal in mind: instilling in them the value of education.

    Perhaps if a president had been capable of making such a speech to the parents of today’s students when they were students themselves, Obama’s speech would have been more effective.
