  • Green River gives sense of history, great fishing

    By Lee McClellan

    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    The headwaters of Green River above Green River Lake imprinted historical greatness on the descendants of the earliest settlers of the area.

    Capt. Abraham Lincoln obtained the first recorded land grant in what is now Casey County with 800 acres along the Green River. His 8-year-old son, Thomas, narrowly escaped death during an Indian ambush that killed Capt. Lincoln in 1786. Without Thomas, we would never hear of his son Abraham Lincoln.

  • Lawrenceburg’s rep as safe place continues to grow

    The summer temperatures are rising and so is Lawrenceburg’s rating as a safe city.

    Hot on the heals of a SafeWise.com ranking as the ninth safest city in Kentucky, the Movoto Real Estate Blog has declared Lawrenceburg as the safest.

  • My stay was brief but this community truly won me over

    I’ve become attached to Lawrenceburg and Anderson County.

    When I arrived 4 months ago, my familiarity was based on drives to Frankfort and stopping at the now defunct food court here on KY 127.

    My cousin was married in the Kavanaugh House and still lives in Lawrenceburg to this day.

    But next week will mark my final week at the helm of The Anderson News. While my stay was brief, my leaving is still bittersweet.

    Here is the view of an outsider who got to be an insider for a brief period.

  • Darland made large corporate store all hers

    When I pulled up to Walmart Monday morning, I felt like I knew Kim Darland from all the secondhand stories passed down to me.

    Each person gave me a small piece of her.

    Mark Willard, an assistant manager at Walmart who has worked with Darland for 23 years, told me about her strong leadership.

    Darland nurtured a young cart boy who had a desire to work his way up to become more.

  • Mornings are perfect for pickin’ beans... sunsets for breakin’

    It must be the old park ranger in me but I do love a good sunset. It is such a peaceful scene, with nothing but friendly conversations between feathered friends, hopping from branch to branch.

    The hay field lays clean and green in the foreground. After the raking and baling, dried brown shoots, nourished by the sun and rain, once again give me my verdant rolling hills.

    Far beyond, cattle graze on the uplands, seen only through a break between the trees.

  • It’s Japanese Beetle season so be prepared: consider these tips

    There have been two reports of Japanese beetle sightings for 2014: late last week from Lyon County and early this week from Franklin County.

    The beetles will continue to emerge over the next 2 weeks or so, especially following a soil softening rain.

    Individual beetles live for about 5 weeks; the season usually lasts for six to eight weeks, peaking in mid-July.

    Management

    Many insecticides are labeled for use against adult Japanese beetles, if control is needed.

    By Jason Denny

    Over the past several years, our office has received questions regarding the process that goes into the assessment, calculation and collection of these bills. I thought this month was a good time to address this very issue.
