  • FCA surpasses Harvest for Haiti fundraising goal by 500 percent

    A club project became an amazing story of a community coming together for one goal — and not only achieving it but going over and beyond.

    Members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Anderson County High School wanted to do something that would provide for others in need and would allow the members themselves to get involved and give to those less fortunate.

    They started organizing and managing a schoolwide event to raise money for food for children in Haiti and to get involved in “Harvest for Haiti.”

  • A holiday feast with loved ones is about as good as it gets

    “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30

    There is nothing that makes my heart happier than when I stop and thank the Lord for this wonderful life I have been given.

    I would like to think that I do it often, but I don’t think it is really ever enough. So, taking a day to prepare a beautiful feast and gather with loved ones for a holiday that is centered around thankfulness, to me, is just about as good as it gets.

  • Close to his Hometown

    J.D. Shelburne hails from across the county line, but he’s had a tie to Anderson County basketball before he was ever able to shoot a 3-pointer.

    “I was named J.D. after Jimmy Dan Conner, an Anderson County legend!” Shelburne says of Kentucky’s Mr. Basketball in 1971.

    General Cable, a wire and cable manufacturer, expects to create more than 54 positions and invest more than $2.5 million into the project.

  • 16 months later, Shelburne’s career is booming; singer says he will win Saturday’s 3-point shootout

    J.D. Shelburne’s country music career has taken some giant steps to stardom since he first sat down for an interview back in July, 2014.

    At the time, Shelburne was well-known on a regional basis, but nothing like it is 16 months later. He’s still climbing and is not yet a household name, but things are different. Not only has Shelburne’s latest video, “Hometown,” been widely acclaimed, he’s getting into new areas around the country. For example, he has been booked for a gig in San Diego in March.

  • Superintendent seeks assistance restoring Glensboro School

    From staff reports

    The old Glensboro School House was brought to the campus of Anderson County High School by a committed group of community members and was restored in the 1990s.

    Plans were to use the school as a place for students to come and experience the way students spent their day at a school where eight grades were taught in one or two rooms. It was also to be used to clubs and other groups for meetings and other activities, but the old school house is in need of repair.
