  • What a finish!

    Where he finished in the Anderson County Burgoo Festival race really didn't matter to Billy Squires.

    It was all about how he finished.

    Squires, who is in his second year as an assistant boys basketball coach at Anderson County High School, made sure it was a finish he and everyone that ran on that September morning would remember.

    After letting the race organizers at the Lawrenceburg Lions Club know about his plans several days in advance, Squires addressed the 125 people that ran the 5K race, telling them he was giving a special award for friendship.

  • Davenport's string music gives Lady Bearcats rhythm

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - All it takes to get into a good rhythm is a little bit of string music. Tiffany Davenport gave Anderson County more of a good beat than Ringo Starr last Tuesday at Bullitt Central.

    The junior jump-started a struggling Anderson offense with a 3-pointer just over four minutes into the season opener, then kept burning the nets with downtown bombs as the Lady Bearcats routed the hosts 74-27.

  • Changing Saffell school makes fiscal, common sense

    The only people who like change, it has been said, are babies with wet diapers.

    Such is the case with proposed changes to the Anderson County school system, as some parents and teachers are crying foul over the board of education's proposal to do what's right for all at the expense of a few and alleviate overcrowding at the middle school.

    The only viable of two options is to convert Saffell Street Elementary School into a fifth- and sixth-grade campus and spread students in grades one through four to the two remaining elementary schools.

  • Proposals would force some students into different schools

    Proposals to alleviate overcrowded conditions at Anderson County School Middle School and reconfigure student populations at the county elementary schools will be heard during a community forum Dec. 10.

    Two plans formulated by the Anderson County Board of Education and the District Boundary Committee will be presented for public discussion in the auditorium at Anderson County High School beginning at 6 p.m.

  • Military couple returns home to bury child

    When Melissa Hytinen left the military base near Ansbach, Germany, in late October to be deployed to Iraq, she never dreamed it would be the last time that she would be able to talk and share hugs with her baby daughter.

    But barely a month later, Melissa received the message that is every parent's worst nightmare. Her almost-6-month-old daughter Natalee had died in her sleep, an apparent victim of sudden infant death syndrome.

    After Melissa left for Iraq, Natalee remained in the care of her father Roger, who was also stationed at the military base in Germany.
