  • Pothole fix sparks anger, accusations

    A recently patched pothole has resulted in one magistrate accusing another of trying to benefit his campaign for county clerk by requesting roadwork outside of his district.

    Magistrate Jason Denny, who is running for county clerk, submitted a work order to have roadwork done in the Honeysuckle subdivision, located in Magistrate Larry Smith's district. Smith said Denny had no business submitted work orders in his district, and that Denny did so to help win support for his campaign for county clerk.

  • State tourney jitters hinder Gillis’ game

    Getting to the state tournament is supposed to be a big deal.

    That is why it is not unusual for participants, no matter what sport, to have jitters when they get there.

    Now, Taylor Gillis knows that feeling up close and personal.

    After a strong practice round last Monday, the Anderson County junior found herself at 6-over just three holes into the state high school golf tournament held at Bowling Green Country Club. She eventually settled in, but rain that interrupted, then delayed, the tournament disrupted her rhythm.

  • Car sails off Highway 44, crashes into ditch

    People at the scene of the accident said Jasmine Hatchell is extremely lucky to have only sustained what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries when, on Monday morning, the Lexus she was driving crashed on Highway 44 near The Gardens subdivision.

    The car apparently hurtled off a 10-foot high culvert and flipped over before coming to an abrupt halt at the bottom of the ditch that parallels the highway.

  • Truck nearly flips on Main Street

    A tractor-trailer driver nearly toppled his rig Friday afternoon while turning right from Woodford Street onto North Main in Lawrenceburg.

    The driver was making what local officials said was an illegal right hand turn on Main when he cut the corner too short and his trailer began climbing the curb on front of city hall.

    Instead of stopping, the driver kept revving his engine and eventually became lodged on the steel handrail along the steps in front of the building, according to Brian Ritchey, who witnessed the incident.

  • Anderson awakens, advances to region

    Corey Sayre knew Anderson County would win but that did not make the Lady Bearcat volleyball coach any happier.

    A heavy favorite in the 28th District tournament semifinals, being played on its home floor, Anderson was on the wrong end of a 10-7 score to Eminence Monday night. Not only did Sayre call for a time out, he pulled his team away from the bench and huddled along the basketball baseline.

  • So what if my husband wears an apron?

    A lot of attention has recently been paid to my cooking skills, or lack thereof.

    During my last visit to Pineville, one of Josh’s aunts playfully asked when I was going to cook her family dinner in all of the new cookware I received before the wedding. I told her she and her family were welcome to come to Lexington for a meal at our house any time, but not to expect me to be the one frying the chicken or baking the dessert.

  • Starting from scratch

    Kristi Riley’s 9-year-old daughter has a shelf in her room dedicated to her youth cheerleading accolades. The shelf is full of pom poms and trophies she has collected throughout her years as a cheerleader.

    “Out of all the sports and activities she’s done, this is the one she’s stuck with,” Riley said.

    Riley’s daughter hopes to add another trophy to that shelf this year, and Riley, the new coordinator of Anderson County Youth Cheerleading, hopes her daughter can, too.

  • Flu shot can help avoid a ‘tosscapade’

    As far as I can recall, I’ve only had the flu once in the past 20 years, maybe longer. It isn’t that I’m any healthier than most other people or that my immune system is better. It’s probably because I almost always get a flu shot.

    The Center for Disease Control recommends annual flu shots for children age 6 months to 19 years, pregnant women, people 50 years of age or older or who have certain chronic medical conditions, or people who live in nursing homes or who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from the flu.

  • Now the fun begins

    Nearly everyone would like to think that his road to the top is filled with the toughest obstacles.

    For those wanting to win the girls’ 25th District soccer tournament, it could be a reality, not an exaggeration.

    We are sure there are probably stronger districts in Kentucky. The boys’ 27th District, for example, boasts that five of its six teams are in the state’s Top 25.

  • A true survivor

    An angel knocked on Karla Taylor’s door on Oct. 6.

    Whether real or an angel in disguise, someone repeatedly knocked on the door at 103 Ray Court to warn those who lived inside that their home was on fire.

    Taylor, 31, a registered nurse, and her two children were sitting upstairs that night when the doorbell started ringing and someone started pounding on the door. Taylor said she kept asking, “Who is it? Who is it?” But no one responded.
