    Firefighters rescued four people Saturday when the vehicle they were in became stranded in the swollen Salt River on Rice Road.

    Interim Anderson County Fire Chief Donald Cox said the driver of a Jeep attempted to cross the river, which had swelled from due to last week’s heavy rain and snow.

    “The water was moving very fast,” said Cox. “Normally it’s just a couple of inches but that day it was at least a couple of feet.”

  • TEARS FOLLOW THE CHEERS FOR LADY BEARCATS

    CARROLLTON – In the end, this group of Anderson County Lady Bearcats only had eight lives.

    They scrapped. They fought. They teetered on the brink of extinction all week long during the girls’ Eighth Region basketball tournament.

    What might have been forgotten was this was to have been somewhat of a rebuilding year for both teams. Anderson, of course, lost all five starters from its 2014 regional titlist.
