    Registered sex offenders in Anderson County got the once-over earlier this month by local, state and federal law enforcement to ensure they are obeying the rules.

    Of 32 people checked in Anderson County, no arrests were made in a sweep dubbed “Operation Whiskey River,” which included checks made here along with Mercer, Scott and Woodford counties. One sex offender remains under investigation as the result of the check, but charges have not been filed, according to Anderson County Sheriff Troy Young.
