  • Do mom and dad or government know what’s best?

    A philosophical debate is shaping up as class action lawsuits against public libraries continue to spread across Kentucky.
    The overarching question is fairly simple, and goes something like this: Should taxpayers, with an assist from fiscal courts, have the power to control library tax rates, or should that be left to those smart enough to actually understand how important libraries actually are?

  • Memorial Day to be observed Sunday

    The American Legion Auxiliary invites the community for a Memorial and Healing Field service on Sunday, May 26 at 3 p.m. at the Healing Field in Lawrenceburg.
    The ceremony is being hosted by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 34, the American Legion Post 34 and the Department of Kentucky Auxiliary in remembrance of fallen service men and women and for all who have served, according to an Auxiliary press release.

  • ‘Heels,’ ‘faces’ and fans

    He’s flying.
    A two-second superman in black and purple pleather pants, Jimmy Lamb slams his body into a wrestler roughly twice his size and at least 20 years younger.
    Chris Majors, his 22-year-old, 305-pound opponent, crashes to the floor of the ring.
    Majors doesn’t move.
    The referee smacks his palm against the mat once, twice —
    It’s unclear if anyone could possibly count the rest over the crowd’s shouts as Jimmy Lamb defeats one of the hated princes of King Hustle’s Court.

  • Disgusting to divine

    A trash and feces-filled home police said just 10 days ago was one of the worst they’d ever seen is now clean as a whistle and ready to be lived in.
    Dozens of co-workers and members of Hope Community Church shoveled, scrubbed, cleaned and repaired a residence at 104 Beth Drive that made headlines across the region last Friday when police removed two children from the home and charged their parents, Anna Mauer and Michael Hutchens, with second-degree wanton endangerment.

  • Suit accuses library of ‘unlawful taking’

    The Anderson Public Library is accused of “unlawful taking” and “complete disregard of the law” in a class action suit filed Friday that seeks hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of dollars in refunds to taxpayers.
    The suit, filed by Lawrenceburg resident Harold Todd in Anderson County Circuit Court on behalf of taxpayers, mirrors three suits filed against libraries in Kenton, Campbell and Boone counties.

  • School board OKs $200,000 property tax increase

    The Anderson County Board of Education unanimously approved its proposed budget Monday night calling for a 4 percent revenue increase, about $200,000 more in anticipated property tax revenue for the upcoming fiscal year.
    School board chairman James Sargent said the budgeted 4 percent revenue increase does not mean the board will ultimately decide to raise tax rates.

  • SOFTBALL: Aldridge's gritty performance for naught in 2-1 loss to Butler

    The difference between winning and losing on the softball diamond is often the little things. Never was it more apparent than Louisville Butler's 2-1 win over host Anderson County last Wednesday.

    The Bearettes scored the winning run when catcher Larissa Book dropped a weak flare just out of the reach of two Anderson defenders with two out in the top of the seventh. Danielle Teague, running for Courtney Rose, trotted home with the game winner.

  • SOFTBALL: Anderson girls drub Spencer, roll on to region

    The only question about the 30th District softball opener Monday night was just how dominant Mia Aldridge really was.

    The freshman pitcher overpowered Spencer County in the Lady Bearcats' 9-0 rout. Aldridge allowed just two base runners and struck out seven to led Anderson to Tuesday's district championship game. Aldridge improved to 12-1 on the year.

    Anderson was to have played Collins, a 16-9 winner over Shelby County in the other semi-final, after press time.

  • STATE TRACK: Eight not enough for Bearcats

    LOUISVILLE – Sunday's papers had no headlines about Anderson County's performance in the Class 3A state track meet Saturday.

    Few outside Lawrenceburg would see much news worthiness in a girls' team being shut out in the point standings and a boys' team finish with eight points in the event, held at the University of Louisville.
