  • A deal that would make Trump smile

    Column as I see ’em …

    I sure am glad to report that the industrial park on U.S. 127 appears to be finally getting some action.

    When the Economic Development Authority bought that lot, I wrote at the time that I’d be shocked if it didn’t already have a potential business in mind that would be moved in within months.

    I sure was wrong about that because it has taken closer to a year and half.

  • Don’t forget to celebrate Earth Day this year

    You all know I’m a weeny when it comes to cold weather, so this wonderful warmth has me playing outside with all living things. Earth Day is this Friday and I sure hope you’ll all do something special to commemorate the day.

    Old hippie that I am, I remember the first one. I was a freshman in high school and already wearing a headband and bell bottoms. War and anti-war demonstrators filled the nightly news. Peace and love were the chanted slogans of those unhappy with the direction of government.

  • Warm, rainy days bring on termite season

    Springtime brings warmer temperatures and more abundant rainfall, and it’s typically when many winged termites emerge inside homes and other structures. Termites swarm from their colony to disburse, fall to the ground, find mates and start new colonies in the soil.

    Through May, you might see swarms of winged termites, called swarmers, inside your home, signaling an infestation that can cause extensive and costly damage. Since swarmers are attracted to light, you often see them or their shed wings around windows, doors and light fixtures.

  • Brother’s success in Boston Marathon not measured in miles

     

    All my life, my brother has always cheered me on from the sidelines in cross country and track, swimming and skiing, basketball and softball.

    On Monday, I got to return the favor — as he tore through the streets from Hopkinton to Boston in the 120th running of the Boston Marathon.

  • Breeding, Harley to portray Carlisle brothers April 26

    From staff reports

    The Lawrenceburg Pierian Woman’s Club will sponsor The Carlisle Brothers Country Music Duo, a Kentucky Humanities Council Chautauqua presentation, on Tuesday, April 26, at the Anderson County Senior Center, 160 Township Square, Lawrenceburg, at 7 p.m. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.

    Lawrenceburg musicians Greg Breeding and Martin Harley will portray the Carlisle Brothers.

  • Beasley’s first HR comes at good time

    It would be stretching things a bit to say Jenni Beasley knew her line drive was going out of the park last Thursday.

    “It felt good coming off the bat, but I had never hit a home run before,” the Anderson County High School freshman said with a huge smile.

    It wasn’t just Beasley’s first varsity home run, but first one, period. Any level.

  • Bearcats defeat Henry for first win
  • Bearcats making progress in spring football
  • Lady Cats earn regional tennis wins

    The Anderson County girls’ tennis team might be growing up if last week’s matches are any indication.

    The Lady Bearcats, with one senior and a freshman and an eighth-grader being the only players with varsity experience before this season, won two of three matches, defeating Shelby County and Spencer County on the home courts.

  • WRECKING THE RECORD BOOK!

    Saturday afternoon might have been the first time I have ever seen Bailey Curry smiling after her team lost.

    But on a weekend when four of Kentucky’s top six high school softball teams got together for games at the highest level, it was Curry who cracked the highest standard.

    Curry wasn’t happy her sixth-ranked Anderson County team had just dropped one to top-rated McCracken County, but long after that 7-1 final score is forgotten, Bailey Curry’s name will be in the state record book.
