  • COLUMN: Putting nightmares to rest

    I was in a movie theater. My husband had gotten up during the film to use the restroom, and while he was gone, an enraged gunman entered the room and started to shoot. There were screams and people began to run frantically. He hit me twice. Each bullet skidded over an opposite side of my face. I was bleeding, but I don’t remember any pain. The gunman left and my husband came back. He looked at me and said, “Well, I guess we better get you to a hospital.”

    Then, I woke up.

    Anderson County picked up where it left off Saturday, thrashing host Scott County 20-8 in a “mercy rule” contest called after five innings.

    Anderson leadoff hitter Jordan Alves set the tone, going 4-for-4 with a walk and scoring five runs. He also stole a base.

  • COLUMN: Fertilizing this week? Make sure you use right stuff

    Hey, it’s May. Have you seen all the wildflowers popping up all over the place? The blue phlox are my favorite. Everything seems to be coming alive these days and it sure makes me smile. You never know what a rough winter will take out.

    These multiple summer droughts and winter ice storms can take their toll on all plants. Plants flowering now are putting everything they’ve got into put on a show for us. The least we can do is help them along with a little food.

  • Russell’s bomb sinks Admirals

    It took nearly six innings, but Anderson County finally figured out Duran Elmore Thursday night.

    Locked in a duel with Anderson’s Kyle DeLong, the Danville left-hander used an unorthodox delivery – think Dontrelle Willis – to limit Anderson to one hit through the first five innings. But Jeremy Turpin cracked a one-out single, then two batters later, Jacob Russell drove an Elmore fastball over the left-field fence, giving Anderson the cushion it needed in a 4-1 win.
