  • COLUMN: Friendly Lawrenceburg will make good movie setting

    Lights, camera, action! The famous words of movie making. Lawrenceburg will be seeing some movie making sometime next year. How exciting is that?

    Our small, friendly town of Lawrenceburg sure doesn’t get a lot of Hollywood attraction, until now. Yes, there’s been a movie or two filmed here. Heck, Kentucky is also home to several actors and actresses, including Hope Riley, the one who will be filming her movie here in a few months.

  • Letters to the editor - 11.11

    Thanks for continuing hunting photos

    To the editor:

    I wanted to take a moment to thank you for continuing to post the hunting pictures in The Anderson News, even after someone writes a letter to the editor regarding the elk hunting trip that made the front page.

    I realize that hunting may not be everyone’s “cup of tea” and I thought it was in poor taste that the author of that letter chose to write regarding a youth hunting adventure.

  • COLUMN: Winterize your garden to help get rid of disease

    Sunshine sure makes me smile. I love to feel the warmth of the rays, no matter what the temperature is outside. As the days get shorter, we gradually get used to the “early dark,” but it does seem to change us. Have you noticed that we seem to get tired earlier in the winter?

  • Bearcats Lady Cats to start season with Cat Madness

    The Anderson County High School basketball teams kick off what figures to be an exciting winter of basketball with the 17th annual Cat Madness on Saturday.

    Trying to defend their regional championship, the Bearcats take the floor against another team for the first time when they play North Bullitt at 7:30 p.m. Despite losing all-stater C.J. Penny to graduation, Anderson is considered one of the Eighth Region favorites on the boys' side.

  • Dillow runs well at state meet

    LEXINGTON -- Anderson County High School sophomore Austin Dillow turned in one of his best performances ever in the KHSAA state cross country meet on Saturday.

    Dillow covered the 5K course at the Kentucky Horse Park in 17:56.11, good for 76th place in the field of 222 runners in Class 3A, or the large school division. Dillow's time was just over two minutes behind the individual winner, Ryan Eaton of Greenwood.

    Dillow, running in his second state meet, improved his placing by 67 spots over last year's finish.

  • COLUMN: Planes, trains and automobiles

    My parents aren’t really vacation people.

    In fact, we only took one week-long vacation (to Myrtle Beach, S.C.) during my childhood.

    Other “vacations” were spent in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, Tenn. or lounging around the house happy to be free from work and school.

    Still today, it’s a small victory to get them to travel as far away from Pineville as Lawrenceburg.

  • Song of the Bluegrass to perform in Midway

    Thoroughbred Theatre in Midway will host Song of the Bluegrass, a women's chorus, for a presentation of popular songs on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 22 at 2:30 p.m.

  • Rupp Arena Bound!

    One more step.

    That is all that stands between the Anderson County Middle School girls' basketball team and a state championship.

    Whitley County is the only obstacle left for the Lady Mustangs as they won the first four games of the eighth-grade state tournament by an average of nearly 21 points over the weekend at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    The Lady Mustangs ran their winning streak to 64 games against other teams of their own age and can finish their middle school careers undefeated with a win over Whitley on Nov. 27.

  • Finally!

    Change jars at gas stations.

    A large poker run in the names of two young men taken too soon.

    Painting faces at the Burgoo Festival.

    Just simply asking everyone and anyone who could spare a buck or two.

    All of the above efforts over the past three years finally came to fruition Monday night when skate park committee members put shovel to dirt and finally broke ground.
