  • Fire district strikes deal with Mercer

    Life will soon be considerably cheaper for Anderson County residents living south of the Bluegrass Parkway.

    Considerably safer, too.

    The Anderson County Fire District recently approved a measure that is expected to cut in half fire insurance rates for about 90 residences by approving a mutual aid agreement with Mercer County.

    That agreement is expected to be finalized by Mercer fire officials Oct. 10.

  • ‘They’re trying to shut us down’

    A privately run recycling facility could be forced to close its doors later this month after racking up three violations of its conditional use permit.

    The county’s Board of Zoning Adjustments (BOZA) is expected to vote Oct. 20 on the future of Francis Pallets and Recycling, after the business received its third notice in August that it violated conditions that allowed it to open in 2011.

    The unelected board is appointed by the Anderson County Fiscal Court.

  • Manhole cover takes flight on Plum Street

    Rowland Daniels was enjoying a leisurely cup of coffee on the front porch of his Suzanne Drive home around 7:30 this morning when he saw something he will likely never see again.

    “A truck came down [Plum Street], hit a manhole cover and flipped it 7 or 8 feet in the air,” said Daniels. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

  • Soups are perfect way to cap off a fall day

    Someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that fall has started. I was standing outside Saturday, it was 90 degrees in the shade. It was a competition day for the Anderson County Marching Band. As a band Mom, I naturally volunteered to be a “chow” Mom. I really don’t do any of the cooking, they have that well under control.
