  • No Repeat Performances

    The year has begun the same way but Anderson County's girls' soccer team does not want a repeat performance from 2008.

    The Lady Bearcats already have a gold medal from the Bluegrass State games and a win over perennial power South Oldham, just as last summer. But reality is sometimes a harsh teacher: Not one of those victories really mattered.

    Nice and prestigious, for sure, but they were till scrimmages.

    Anderson hopes to have learned the hard lesson a year ago.

  • Lady Cats' volleyball opens with win

    The Anderson County volleyball team opened its season with a win over Mercer County on Tuesday night. The Lady Bearcats cruised to a 25-18 victory in game one, a win that was never in doubt, but had to hang on for a 25-23 victory in game two. Mental errors were the main culprit in the second game but the Lady Bearcats got big games from Chelsea Payne and Hannah Smith at the net for the victory.

    Assistant coach Bob Hardin led the Bearcats as head coach Jason McDannold did not make his debut. McDannold was tending to a family illness.

  • Grand jury indictments

    On July 21, the Anderson County grand jury indicted Carolyn Goodwin, 44, of Louisville, on a charge of complicity to theft by unlawful taking (more than $300).

    The following people were indicted Aug. 4 by the Anderson County Grand Jury.

    Anthony Jewell, of 1203 Caldwell Road, was indicted on two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

    Andrew B. Garlen, 25, of Frankfort was indicted on one count of first-degree perjury.

    Stephanie N. Cummins, 26, of 310 1/2 Bond Street, was indicted on one count of first-degree perjury.

  • COLUMN: Shelby wins this one

    C.J. Penny might have put a dagger through Shelby County's collective heart back on March 10.

    Jacob Brown might have dominated Shelby on May 20, then came back and did it again – with a little help from Luke Hawkins – seven days later.

  • COLUMN: Wooden cross issue is city’s to bear

    Column as I see ’em ...

    When word gets around that the police are giving people a 10 mph break in a 55 zone, people will drive 65.

    When they learn that they can fudge certain portions on their tax return, people will cheat.

    When parents don’t enforce a curfew, children will be delinquents.

    And when they learn that the rules at Lawrenceburg Cemetery aren’t enforced, people will break them.

    That’s the trouble with rules. Unless they are consistently enforced, they might as well be suggestions.

  • Letters to the editor - 8.5

    Paper correct on alleged drunk driver

    To the editor:

    I applaud The Anderson News for featuring the drunk driver article on the front page several weeks ago, and I am dumbfounded by the petty-based criticism of the newspaper for putting it there.

    I recall the Carroll County school bus tragedy that burned the life out of 24 children, three adults and injured 34 more some with disfiguring burns. That indescribable tragedy was caused by a hollow-eyed [allegedly] drunk driver traveling north in the southbound lane of I-71.

  • Despite key losses, Bearcat golf to contend for state berth

    It is not often when a high school sports team loses three of its top five players off a team that went 16-3 in dual meets and won two tournaments can actually feel the following year can be another banner season.

    But welcome to Anderson County boys’ golf, where fourth-year coach Will Carlton says, “We can be better than last year.”

    Say what?

  • 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.
