  • COLUMN: Seeing through another’s lens

    When our office was downtown, I walked up and down Main Street on an almost daily basis, but I’ve never walked on Main Street like I did last Friday.

    Friday I spent basically the whole day with one of my very best friends, April, and her husband, Mitch.

    April and I go way back — to at least fifth or sixth grade. We were besties throughout middle school and high school. I was in her wedding; she was in mine.

  • Woman charged with running over boyfriend

    A domestic dispute ended last Friday when a Lawrenceburg woman allegedly used a vehicle to run over her boyfriend at 115 Bluebird Court, according to Lawrenceburg police.

    Stephanie L. Cane, 37, of 83 Warbler Drive, was charged with first-degree domestic assault, driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident.

    Police say she ran over Jeremy Cheser, who suffered head, arm and leg injuries.

  • Police find rape victim nude, bruised, bleeding

    A woman screaming hysterically.

    That’s what Lawrenceburg police officer David Patterson says he heard early Sunday morning when he approached the front door of a residence at 109 Carlton Drive to investigate a noise complaint.

    Patterson says he knocked on the door, but quickly decided that waiting for a response wouldn’t do. Instead, he forced his way inside and found a nude, bleeding and bruised woman lying on a bed.

    “She was screaming hysterical and crying ‘help me, help me,’” Patterson said in an interview Monday afternoon.

  • 127 Corridor Sale in full swing

    The world’s longest yard sale will be running through Anderson County once again this year.

    The 127 Corridor Sale officially begins on the first Thursday in August (which, this year, is Aug. 6), but some vendors in Anderson County set up a few days early to get in some extra sales.

    Eagle Lake Convention and Expo Center is the state headquarters of the sale, which runs through Sunday, Aug. 9.

  • Schools open in sadness

    The first day of the school year in Anderson County began with middle school students mourning the loss of one of their own.

    Seth Carnahan, 13, who started attending seventh grade at Anderson County Middle School in February, fell into North Elkhorn Creek on Saturday afternoon while crossing Great Crossing Dam in Scott County.

    Rescue crews spent three days searching, and the teenager’s body was recovered Monday afternoon.

  • Lawrenceburg, police hit with $20 million lawsuit

    A Lawrenceburg woman whose son was shot and killed May 26 by his father in a murder-suicide is suing the city and two police officers for at least $20 million, according to a lawsuit filed last Thursday at the federal courthouse in Frankfort.

    Candice Dempsey claims the city failed to properly hire, train and supervise Lt. Chris Atkins and officer Nathan Doty, and that both were made aware of the father’s “long, sordid criminal history” when they removed the boy from his mother’s custody May 14.

  • Family cross over ban on wooden crosses

    Haley Meadows stood in Lawrenceburg Cemetery on Saturday afternoon hugging a framed photo of her father and staring at the wooden cross that marks his grave.

    Family members say Haley, 10, used to cry when she visited the grave — partly because she missed her father, Larry Jarvis Meadows, who died in February 2007, and partly because his grave was bare and not marked like the rest around him.

    Last December, a gift allowed Haley to dry a few tears. A family friend made a personalized cross and gave it to Haley as a Christmas present.
