  • Want to read some good news? Turn to Jesus

    When we open the paper, turn on the television or turn up the radio, there is a common outcome; more often than not, what we read, see or hear is bad news.
    After all, bad news is big business. We buy magazines because of the scandal advertised on the cover; we “stay tuned” often out of an innate curiosity about the calamities of others.
    Why is this? Because all of humanity by means of our own sin are part of the bad news. We write our own headline every day with our actions and our attitudes that are antithetical to God and his word.

  • Opponents: Pipeline ‘no good for citizens of Kentucky’

    Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway says he doesn’t want the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline to cross Anderson County, and apparently has plenty of company.
    About a dozen opponents of the pipeline voiced their displeasure during last Tuesday night’s Anderson County Fiscal Court meeting, telling magistrates how they have been misled by land acquisition agents, that it offers no local benefit and how potentially dangerous the proposed project is to the environment.

  • Library director rejects tax rate demanded in lawsuit

    Taxpayers can expect their library tax rates to remain flat, or decrease slightly for the upcoming fiscal year.
    If they’re expecting the library board to drop rates to the level demanded by a taxpayer lawsuit against Anderson Public Library, it won’t be an option.
    Library director Pam Mullins said she found no reason to recommend the compensating rate, at 87 cents per $1,000 assessed value, or a 4 percent revenue increase, at 90 cents per $1,000 assessed value.

  • Final fiscal court vote on swimming facility unlikely until September

    A final vote on building a $2.8 million swimming facility in the county park likely won’t happen until September, if it happens at all.
    Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway said last week that the fiscal court will open architectural bids for the project during its meeting Aug. 6, but doesn’t expect a vote that day to hire one.
    Conway said the fiscal court’s parks and recreation committee will review those bids before being presented to the fiscal court for a vote.

  • Residents plea for help on ‘dangerous’ road

    A decades old fight to have the county take over maintenance of the end of Herndon Road resurfaced after residents presented a petition last Tuesday to the Anderson County Fiscal Court.
    Seven families live on the 2,500-foot stretch of narrow, rutted road that they say exposes their children to dangerous conditions and is inaccessible to fire trucks and ambulances.
