  • Doing what few thought could be done

     

    When the 2017 high school baseball season opened the number of people believing Anderson County would be the top seed in the 30th District Tournament might have been less than the number of hits Luke Dowell gave up last Tuesday night at Collins.

    Four.

  • Angels in disguise

    Even in the final scene, I am not at home.

    I am alone in a friend’s basement, pulling my graduation gown over my head. The game room is bright with lights as I stare into a wall of beer-themed mirrors, the contents of my makeup bag rolling across their pool table as I line my eyes with a kohl pencil.

    My friend’s dad walks in, surprised, and jokes, “Hey kiddo. You moving in?”

  • Keep your eyes on the road buddy!

    You see ads on TV all the time about safe driving.

    Over the last few years, I have met countless people that are not paying attention to their driving. How do I know this? They are on my side of the road!

    It happens too often. In fact it happened Friday afternoon.

  • Mother Nature is ready, are you?

    Well, we got plenty of rain. Here on the farm it was the good kind. Gentle, consistent rain allows for water to be soaked up, instead of running off. Thankfully, I had done a little fertilizing so the rains worked it into the soil and the plants have shot up.

    The winds were not so friendly. They beat the daylights out of some of my transplants. They’ll recover, but my one container tomato plant, that I over wintered, took a beating. The tomatoes are still hanging on though and I should be eating my first tomatoes this week.

  • New works of art offered by Lawrenceburg artist

    Lois Todd is well known through Anderson County and many other parts of Kentucky for her acrylic paintings of historic buildings and Kentucky landscapes. Painting since high school, Todd said her progression as an artist has shown throughout the years as she focused on the detail in the nature that inspired and surrounded her.

    “I love the sky,” said Todd. “I love sunsets, and sunrises. I love country scenes and I love old barns. I have done a lot of those.”
