  • Main St. loses another as Klink’s closes

    By Meaghan Downs

    After 64 years in downtown Lawrenceburg, Klink’s drugstore will close its doors and merge with MedStop pharmacy beginning Sept. 26.
    Klink’s drugstore, one of the oldest businesses on Main Street, officially became under the ownership of MedStop owner Walter Sharshon this past May.
    Sharshon said the decision to merge the two pharmacies was based on the small volume of Klink’s customers coming downtown, along with the lack of parking and the convenience of a drive-thru window.

  • Magistrates begin process of mandatory trash pickup

    Mandatory trash pickup inched closer to reality Tuesday morning.
    The measure, if approved, would require those not currently having their trash picked up to do so, and pay for the service on their water bills.
    By a 4-3 vote, magistrates approved having the county attorney draft an ordinance, which will still need to be passed at a future date.
    Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway has pushed for mandatory collection since taking office in January.

    There was a reason for the shock that made its way through two communities last week: Stephen Hawkins had changed.
    Hawkins, 28, was found dead in his apartment at Kentucky Christian University in Grayson last Wednesday. An athlete during his days at Anderson County High School, Hawkins had become a respected student at the school.
    Friends in Lawrenceburg and Grayson, where Kentucky Christian is located, were in shock over Hawkins’ sudden death. Results of an autopsy, performed Thursday, are pending.

  • Sky-high electric bills a real shocker

    Thousands of Anderson County residents are fuming this week after receiving electric bills that are, in some cases, three or four times higher than their normal amounts.
    Kentucky Utilities is blaming a contracted meter reader for the problem, but is billing customers for his mistakes, anyway.
    The meter reader has since been fired by Tru-Check, the company contracted to read Kentucky Utilities’ meters, after he apparently misread them and recorded electric usage below what was actually used.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Bearcats explode in second half to down Frankfort

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Clark’s last-minute rocket propels Lady Bearcats past Mercy in Boyle classic

    DANVILLE – Maddy Ruble made no secret of the fact that she called for some divine help when she saw Taylor Clark break into the open near the Mercy goal on Saturday.


    “I was thinking, ‘Dear God, please score,’” Ruble quipped moments after Clark’s second goal of the day – and fifth in two matches – gave Anderson County a 3-2 win over Louisville Mercy in the fifth-place match of the Boyle County Invitational Tournament.

  • FACE TO FACE: Laswell, Bearcats going for state tourney berth next week

    Someone forgot to tell the Anderson County boys’ golf team that 2011 was supposed to be a rebuilding year. The Bearcats lost three outstanding golfers, all now at Georgetown College, and were not expected to be in contention for a state tournament berth.


    But with the regional tournament set for Danville Country Club next week, the Bearcats are among the teams expected to compete for a coveted place at the state.

  • COLUMN: Bearcats' district opener is no joking matter

    I never knew Mark Peach was such a comedian.


    A singer? Sure.  Many people  throughout south-central Kentucky have heard the Anderson County football coach belt out a few tunes in churches.


    And guys who have played football for Peach at Hancock County, Anderson County and two stops in between have heard Peach sing too.


    The usual critique? “He’s good.”

  • Bearcats place high at Danville meet

    The Anderson County boys’ cross country team pushed each other to a fourth place finish in the 12-team Boyle County Invitational, held at Danville’s Millennium Park last Thursday.

    Two spots and six seconds behind was junior Dylan Buser while senior Kiefer Williams placed 17th, covering the course in 18:50.

  • Bearcat baseball celebrates season

    The Anderson County High School baseball team celebrated the 2011 season with the annual team awards banquet, held at Anderson-Dean Aquatic Center on Aug. 14.
