    State and local officers were continuing their investigation of a new car found last Thursday afternoon buried beneath about 15 tons of rock in the rock quarry of the Kentucky Stone Company, near the Kentucky River.

  • School district will recover from Goodlett’s arrest

    It’s been a difficult few weeks for LaRue County Public Schools, whether you work there, attend one of the schools, are a parent of a student or graduated from the district.

    For certain, the district has enjoyed brighter days.

    When those in leadership positions take missteps, it can shake a level of confidence. That’s what we see today at LaRue County, a district that is shaken, yet far, far from being crushed.

  • Clean the yard now for an easier spring

    Autumn has arrived in Kentucky and, as leaves change color and fall from trees, it is time to focus on landscape sanitation.

    Good sanitation practices can help reduce disease-causing pathogens. These organisms can survive for months or years on dead plant material or in soil, causing infections in subsequent years.

  • Even Putin can’t rig Anderson’s election

    Column as I see ’em …

    This fall’s presidential is rigged, depending on who you ask.

    Rigged is a slippery term. For those some consider pre-fitted for tinfoil hats, it can infer that the outcome is predetermined and we are all just pawns in some grand scheme — a Bush-Clinton cabal of New World Order types bent on global control, among others.

  • Call him champ

    When he turned 16, Jacoby Wiley needed some new wheels.

    Not just any wheels, mind you. And he certainly did not want a late model sports car like many of his Anderson County High School classmates.

    He wanted a truck. A standard shift truck.

    It was all the better for truck tugging.

  • Local woman head over heels about Halloween

    For Brenda Holder, Halloween is more than a holiday — it’s a celebration.

    It’s hard to miss Holder’s home on the corner of Willoughby Woods and Canterbury Street — her hearse is parked on the front lawn, jockeying for position among the countless monsters, skeletons and goblins that hang from limbs and sway in the breeze.

  • Mum's the word

    From staff reports

    Virtually overnight, Cynthia Shell’s front yard was transformed into a mum paradise.

    Shell, who lives at 307 Saffell St., is selling the mums of all colors and sizes that fill her lawn.

    “We got two big truckloads yesterday (last Thursday) and we got 90 more coming today,” Shell’s son Michael Luttrell, 13, explained as he surveyed the multicolored flowers decorating the lawn. “My back is hurting today.”
