  • Dance Saturday to benefit Wall of Honor

    There will be a benefit dance for the Veterans’ Wall of Honor Saturday, Nov. 21.

    No veteran has ever paid to have his or her name placed on the wall, but the metal plates are purchased solely through donations.

    If you have an Anderson County veteran who is not on the wall, send the information to Veteran’s Wall of Honor, P.O. Box 672, Lawrenceburg, KY 40342. You need to include the persons name, branch of service, rank, year entered and year out.

    One for the record

    It happened once, that’s for sure, but may never happen again!

    So said Mrs. E.W. Ripy Jr., who made a hole-in-one at the Whippoorwill Golf course in Harrodsburg.

    According to her husband, she had only played golf about a half dozen times in her life. She was so elated over hitting the ball and not the green that she failed to see the ball roll in the cup.

    The hole was No. 8, which is a par 3 hole.
