  • Library eyeing huge expansion

    Anderson Public Library board is considering its first expansion since 2005 due what it says is public demand for more multipurpose library space.
    Pam Mullins, director of the Anderson Public Library, said an expansion was something the public said it wanted the library to pursue.
    “The purpose of any renovation we do is to improve our services to the public,” she said.

  • City, county take first steps toward merger

    What began last Tuesday night as a joint city-county meeting to hear a presentation on unified government quickly turned into, for some, a referendum on how to reign in what Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway called the county’s “out of control” taxing districts.
    The Anderson County Fiscal Court and Lawrenceburg City Council did as expected and, after a presentation by attorney Walter Patrick, authorized their attorneys to draft ordinances that will need to be approved.

  • Sports Blog: Pat Summitt IS women's basketball

    I can still remember those days when Ray Mears had some of his Tennessee Vols warm up on unicycles. Or those pre-shot clock days when Kentucky was routinely scoring 90 to 100 points a game and Tennessee would come to town and hold the ball. If either team made it to 60, it was amazing.

    In fact, one of the first Wildcat basketball games I ever attended was in 1967 when Tennessee visited Lexington and scored a double-overtime win over Kentucky.

  • Lukewarm about salvation? God will spit you from his mouth

    I often times question my own salvation, as I think we all do. I sometimes feel as if I am pretty much doing nothing to honor Christ with my life.
    I attend and participate in church, but often don’t feel satisfied that I am doing enough.
    I clearly recognize that one cannot earn their way to heaven as we are saved by grace not works (Ephesians 2:8).
    A true believer is saved by grace that produces works. However I often feel like I fall into the category “lukewarm.”
