  • Tornadoes swirl above Lawrenceburg

    Thankfully, none of the numerous tornadoes that swirled directly over Lawrenceburg early Friday night touched down.

    The storm, which blew in from Taylorsville around 6 p.m., spawned a dozen or more overhead tornadoes, some with wind speeds in excess of 100 mph, according to Anderson County Emergency Management Director Bart Powell.

    “We were tracking it on Doppler, and had as many as six or seven rotations at the same time,” Powell said.

  • SOFTBALL: No. 13 Oldham shows it is worthy of ranking

    Reality, wearing Oldham County softball uniforms, hit Anderson County quickly last Thursday.

    Just minutes after the Lady Bearcats had ridden Mackenzie Peavler’s first home run of the season for a 2-1 lead over 13th-ranked Oldham, the visitors sent eight batters to the plate, scoring three runs in the third inning. That 4-2 Oldham lead eventually turned into an 8-4 victory. A team that finished at 12-15 a year ago has suddenly become one of the state’s best, winning its 17th in 18 games.

  • The good Samaritan lives

    Jamie Richardson is anything but a typical 21-year-old.
    Not only is he a happy-go-lucky, somewhat talkative young man, he’s also remarkably honest and demonstrated both traits last Friday morning.
    Richardson was hanging out in the city parking lot off Court Street while his buddy cleared up a traffic ticket in court.
    He looked down, saw a check and instead of jamming it in his jeans, proceeded to call the phone number on the check to ensure it was returned to its rightful owner.

  • Payback is a …

    A woman known by friends, family and coworkers to be among Anderson County’s foremost pranksters received her just deserts last Friday afternoon.
    The conspirators — who out of fear of retribution spoke on the condition of anonymity —took Cheri Johnson’s car from behind where she works on Main Street, parked it in front of the county courthouse and plastered it with Post-it notes before wrapping it in several layers of industrial-strength cellophane.
