  • A change in personalities

    SHELBYVILLE - What some call the beauty of the baseball-softball diamond turned into an ugly nightmare for Anderson County's Lady Bearcats last Tuesday.

    There is no clock in the games, just record three outs and the inning is over.

  • Anderson whips state's No. 4 team to win Capital City Showcase

    Now, Anderson County can get that state tournament talk out again.

    Just 3 days after a performance that left some, including their coaches and perhaps themselves, questioning whether or not they had the mettle to make a serious run at an Eighth Region championship, the Anderson County softball team's answer came through loud and clear Saturday night with a championship of the Capital City Showcase tournament, held at Frankfort's Lakeview Park.

  • Response to free coupon overwhelms eatery

    The owners of a new Chinese restaurant in Lawrenceburg have stopped honoring a coupon for a free buffet meal due to an overwhelming public response.

  • Judge gets pay increase; employees get zilch

    If the county budget that was presented at Tuesday night's special fiscal court meeting remains unchanged, county employees' salaries will be frozen for the fiscal year that begins July 1, although Judge-Executive Steve Cornish's pay has already this year been increased by about 6 1/2 percent.

    And if he takes advantage of incentive pay offered to those who take classes designed to make judge-executives more effective in their positions, he stands to earn an additional $2,000 to $3,000.

  • Candidates say economy, education top their priorities

    Both democratic candidates in the race for the 55th district's state representative - which includes Anderson County - place the economy and education among their top concerns

    Current Rep. Milward Dedman, of Harrodsburg, and his opponent Kent Stevens, of Lawrenceburg, both spoke at the April 22 meeting of the Anderson County Democratic Women's Club.

    Each candidate was given nine and half minutes to speak, then the floor was opened up for questions from the women in attendance.

  • Silence not golden for Bearcats

    VERSAILLES - Anderson County might be wondering which team it really is.

    Are the Bearcats the club that put 17 runs up on perennial power Danville and was averaging nearly double digits in runs scored as recently as April 16?

    Or are they the team that was shut out twice in three games of the Woodford County Invitational Tournament, making the fourth time in the last 9 games that the Bearcats had fired blanks?

    The Bearcats would like to know after getting only 4 hits off Lloyd Memorial right-hander Jeremy Pittman Saturday in the Bearcats' last game of the tournament.

  • Officials say restaurant funds OK to use in parks

    The city of Lawrenceburg can use its portion of a proposed restaurant tax to enhance its parks system, city and tourism officials insisted Monday.

    That stance contradicts statements made last week by a tourism official who said using tourism money that way is improper, a position shared by the president of the Kentucky Restaurant Association, who said cities frequently use the money improperly.

  • Anderson track places well at Danville

    The Anderson County High School boys' track team finished third in the Danville All-Comers' meet held last Tuesday at Admiral Stadium in Danville. Anderson placed well despite not running some of the Bearcats' top performers in some events as coach Travis Gay elected to give some younger team members the opportunity to compete.

    High jumper Jordan Sloan continued to show why he is ranked as one of Kentucky's best with a victory. Sloan cleared the bar at 6-feet. Discus thrower and shot putter John Updike was also impressive, placing second in both events.

  • Balance powers Lady Bearcats past Bullitt Central netters 3-2

    Anderson County put together an impressive showing Thursday night as the Lady Bearcats defeated visiting Bullitt Central 3-2 in girls' tennis action.

    Two of Anderson's wins came in straight sets and both losses went the distance before Bullitt Central prevailed.

    Anderson's top singles player, Mary Ellen Stratton dropped the first set 6-7 but came back to win the final two sets.

  • Health, safety fair set for Saturday

    A health and safety fair featuring free screenings and children's events is scheduled for Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Anthony D. Stratton Building, located in the county park.

    The annual fair, hosted by the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce with assistance from the Anderson County Health Department, will include a bicycle rodeo and physical activity challenge for children, along with a roll over car simulator.
