  • Shooting at police no longer a big deal

    Column as I see ’em …

    I’m now fully convinced that the only way someone in Anderson County will be convicted of attempting to murder a police officer is to actually shoot one.

    Just in the past two years, two suspects have been charged with that crime, only to walk out of the courtroom without being convicted.

    The first was Timmy Nutgrass, who called the police for help and greeted them after they arrived by unloading hundreds of rounds from an AK-47 on a deputy and four state troopers.

  • Pesky little chiggers are unwelcome summer guests

    Chiggers are the parasitic immature stage of a mite that feeds on other arthropods as an adult. Chigger bites are lingering souvenirs of time spent in brushy areas or tall grass.

    Chiggers are too small to see (1/150 of an inch long) and you will not feel them until several hours after they have fed and dropped off. This information is intended to reduce your problems with them.

    How do they find us?

  • Not your daddy’s 911

    Imagine the day when instead of describing a sick or injured person’s emergency over the phone, a 911 caller can simply stream live video to first responders, or shoot them a text message, asking for help.

    That day isn’t here, yet, but got a little closer recently when Lawrenceburg’s 911 call center received a $41,677 grant from the state’s office of Homeland Security.

    Todd Sparrow, the center’s director and chairman of the joint city-county 911 board, said the grant will be used to replace older radio consoles with digital ones.

  • Hall gets a second chance at recovery

    Cocaine and alcohol destroyed former Anderson County resident Denzil Hall’s business, and nearly cost him his life.

  • MAN SHOT AFTER NOT STOPPING TO PAY TOLL AT BRIDGE

    80 YEARS AGO

    Thursday, July 15, 1937

    A man in a car containing four occupants was injured Saturday night at the Tyrone bridge when struck by a bullet, shot by the toll collector, William Cox.

  • Christians need to stand for truth in today’s world

    I read a tweet this week that stated “Liberalism, where a man can become a woman, but not a Christian.” It would be humorous if it weren’t true.

    Did you know that the House of Representatives in the U.S. Congress voted this past week to continue to fund sex changes and gender reassignment hormone treatment in the U.S. Military?
