  • Four Roses repeats as Burgoo Cook-Off champs

    Jess Sanford and his team at Four Roses apparently can’t be beat.

    For the fifth consecutive year, Four Roses outdistanced the competition in the Burgoo Cook-Off, an event sponsored by The Anderson News as a fundraiser for Sheriff Troy Young’s Shop With a Cop program that purchases Christmas gifts for local children in need.

    Darnell’s Old Tyme Burgoo had a strong showing and placed second, followed by Anderson County Schools, which placed third in its first year of competition.

    The event raised nearly $1,200 for Shop With a Cop.

    VFW sponsors youth contests

    VFW Post 4075 and its Ladies Auxiliary are sponsoring two youth contests, the organization announced.

    The first is the “Voice of Democracy Scholarship Competition,” which is open to students in grades nine through 12.

    Entry deadline is Nov. 1.

  • ‘In-your-face terror’

    Some are afraid of heights, others tight spaces, spiders or snakes.

    The world is full of phobic reactions, including plenty of people who feel like running away screaming at the first sight of a clown.

    That’s a condition known as coulrophobia, and by the end of October it might well be the single most diagnosed condition in Lawrenceburg.

  • Teen receives national award for saving man’s life

    When Jaden Raymond saved a man’s life in January, he never expected to be featured on the front page of The Anderson News.

    Imagine his surprise, then, when the 16-year-old freshman at Anderson County High School found out his act of heroism won him a national award.

    Raymond won the American Legion Auxiliary’s national Youth Hero Award during the group’s national convention in Baltimore and was presented the award by American Legion Auxiliary Unit 34 in Lawrenceburg earlier this month.

  • ‘He was a force, he was a kind man’

    It’s fitting that one of the last images people will have of Jimmy Walker is of him holding the American flag high during the singing of the National Anthem.

    It was the recent anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks and Walker, co-president of the Wheels in Time Car Club, made sure that the group’s Friday night cruise-in on Main Street included a patriotic tribute to those who lost their lives.

  • We’re doing just fine, thank you

    Column as I see ’em …

    Being that those reading this newspaper are the ones paying the bills around here, I figured the onset of National Newspaper Week (Oct. 4-10) is the perfect time to give you a state of your newspaper address of sorts.

    Unlike politicians who spin a lot of misery into fool’s gold, I’ll simply stick to the facts and get to it.

  • Amaze your friends with this very unique use of vodka

    Well, it’s here. Equal days and equal nights just cruised into town.

    Fall marks that slow march into more dark than light, for our non-summer pleasure. October does have its good points. As the chlorophyll levels drop in the leaves, their true colors pop. Bight gold next to crimson red sure makes for a beautiful sight. We also don’t have to mow as much, thought this drought helped us with that one.
