  • TENNIS: Sister act: Wamplers advance to finals

    Wampler dropped another backhand just inside the left sideline for a point, her sister, Amanda, quickly turned away from her spot at the net with a huge smile.

  • Running for city council? Here’s your platform

    Raise your hand if your pay is automatically increased each year based on the consumer price index.
    Don’t feel bad if you didn’t because few if any businesses or government agencies would even consider awarding pay raises based solely on the cost of living going up.
    Among those few is the Lawrenceburg City Council and its mayor. That bunch has been giving itself pay increases for the past six years not based on the job they have done, but instead on the cost of living. That’s it, nothing more.

    Lawrenceburg residents Lea and Kevin Beasmore want answers from the city on the state of a dilapidated Marrs Avenue property, one that the couple says is a public nuisance, a health hazard and should be demolished.

  • Pair fly off into wild blue yonder

    Throughout their high school years, Tori Yeaste and Matt Sprague have had their share of memorable moments.

    Moments like back on Nov. 18 when Sprague hauled in a touchdown pass with 44 seconds remaining to pull Anderson County into a tie with Conner. The ensuing extra point gave the Bearcats the school’s first regional championship.

    Two weeks later, Anderson was playing in the state championship game.

  • Butt-dialing becoming a real pain in 911’s ... butt

    If you’ve ever butt-dialed 911 don’t be embarrassed because you have plenty of company.
    So much company, in fact, that the problem is becoming a significant one for local 911 dispatchers who have much more important work to do than answering phone calls made, well, from people’s butts.
    Butt-dialing — slang for when a cell phone user inadvertently dials a phone number — is a growing problem across the country, and Lawrenceburg certainly isn’t immune.
