  • EDITORIAL: Teacher a shining example for all

    All too rarely does life afford us the opportunity to meet someone whose character and virtue are above reproach.

    We had that chance Monday afternoon when high school teacher Hannah Scott visited us to clear her name after it was smeared by a student who claimed she showed him sexually explicit photos along with other allegations.

  • COLUMN: Here’s some ideas for more summer fun

    Ah, summer is officially here, with all its hot weather and extra time — for some of us anyway.

    Some of us can jump in the pool or go to sports practices. Many of us go on vacation, but that doesn’t last all summer long.

    Then, some of us stay inside and wonder what in the world can I do this summer? What is there in Anderson County for me to do? Believe it or not, there are quite a few things to do around here.

    Of course there are still many things that could make Lawrenceburg better and more fun in the summer.

  • Changing Kentucky, one good deed at a time

  • COLUMN: Lack of pool is becoming embarrassment

    A story in Saturday’s Lexington Herald-Leader got the journalistic juices flowing.

    The story examined what some pools in Georgetown were doing to comply with a new state law requiring covers over drains in swimming pools.

    Knowing a good angle, even if it’s borrowed, when  I see one, I thought it would be good to find out how this is going in Anderson County.

    Except for one minor difficulty.

    Anderson County doesn’t have a public pool.

  • Letters to the editor - 7.1

    Principal answering customers’ demands

    To the editor:

    Recent criticism of high school Principal Ray Woodyard is unfair and misdirected.

    All the evidence I can find indicates he was just honoring his customers’ priorities when he chose to recognize something else over academics at graduation.

    Some of the evidence is anecdotal and hard to share; much is hard to miss. This paper, for instance, has a sports section with its own editor, color front page and at least three inside pages every week.

  • Cops: Allegations against teacher were lies

    A high school teacher has been cleared of charges that she had inappropriate contact with a student and that she showed him provocative and sexual photos, according to a news release issued by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department.

    Teacher Hannah Scott, 25, was cleared of the allegations following a lengthy investigation that included the sheriff’s department, Federal Bureau of Investigation and other agencies.
