  • Spring is perfect time for roasted chicken and veggies

    By Ciara Hyatt, Cooking columnist

    My name is Ciara Hyatt. I am a lover of cooking, entertaining and eating.

    I grew up in San Antonio, Texas where I ate some of the best Mexican food and smokehouse BBQ around. My rich Italian heritage meant I also got to enjoy first hand some of Italy’s finest recipes.

    Moving to Kentucky at age 15 introduced me to something I hadn’t been exposed to before but was immediately hooked on: down home, country cookin’.

  • Christian Academy students learn about Seder

    Some students at the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg recently participated in a Messianic Passover Seder, the school announced.

    A Seder is a traditional Jewish feast that marks the beginning of Passover and commemorates the freeing of the Hebrews from the Egyptians.

  • Blue-blood in her veins, even in Badger Land

    You know that old saying about there being a reason for everything? Deanna Conaty will vouch for it being true.

    Back when she was looking at her children’s school calendar, Conaty noted spring break running from March 30-April 3. The itinerary was very simple: Travel to Lawrenceburg.

    Make that travel to friendly territory from her home in Mequon, Wis.


    It has been five years since Kristen Hamrick made it to the state tennis tournament. Not only did she make it – the only Anderson County player to ever get to the state in singles play – Hamrick advanced.

    Just as she hopes Anderson County girls’ tennis will advance under her leadership.

    Hamrick is back on what she called her home court during those days when she was considered one of the top high school players in Kentucky. She has answered the call to lead the Lady Bearcat tennis team as their new head coach.

  • Rusty Lady Bearcats sharp enough, pound Shelby

    SHELBYVILLE – What do 8 runs and 14 hits get you?

    For the Anderson County Lady Bearcats it was last Tuesday’s win at Shelby County and a long conference with coach Brent Aldridge following the 30th District softball game.

    Anderson put a big time hurt on Shelby County but Aldridge noted, “We are still rusty and didn’t play clean.”

    In other words, the Lady Bearcats should be better. Much better.
