  • Elections board restores Western polling location

    Western precinct voters won’t have to drive to town in November to cast their ballots
    By a 3-1 vote, the Anderson County Elections Board last Friday reopened Beaver Creek Masonic Lodge as a polling place, ending nearly a year of on-again, off-again voting at the location.

  • The Anderson News launches inaugural burgoo cook-off

    From staff reports
    Some use old granddad’s secret recipe. Others simply toss whatever edible items they have into the pot and let them stew.
    There’s no shortage of ways to make burgoo, but come Saturday, Oct. 1, one version will be proclaimed the best.
    The Anderson News, in cooperation with the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce, city of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County Tourism Authority, will sponsor its inaugural Burgoo Cook-off from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., tentatively on the Lawrenceburg Green.

  • Lay that donkey down and rest in God’s love

    A young boy and an old man were walking with a donkey when a group of people passed by.
    “Isn’t that ridiculous that no one’s riding that donkey,” one person said.
    So, the old man told the boy to ride the donkey.
    Another group of people passed by and someone said, “That’s terrible! Look at that young boy riding that donkey while the old man walks.”

  • Small life changes can add up to big bucks

    I always get up with the birds. Thankfully, they’ve been sleeping in lately.
    As summer comes to an end, our daylight wanes and plants and animals adapt. It’s the cycle of life and adapting is the key to survival. If I didn’t get to hibernate a little in the winter, I’d never survive. I’d be too pooped.
    Sadly, hibernation is months away and we still have lots to do before then. Motivation is still the ticket to get us through. All I have to do to get my motor running is remember my relatives.

  • Don’t talk the talk if you can’t walk the walk

    Patience is not my virtue.
    I’m guessing it’s not yours, either.
    Time is precious, or so our strict schedules and ringing smart phones tell us.
    A typical nightmare for me: a never-ending line at the airport terminal with nothing to read.
    Honestly, that scares me more than Norman Bates or Freddy Krueger.  
    Parking downtown, however, isn’t exactly the Nightmare on Main Street that I’ve heard about.

  • It’s all about the children, sort of

    What would it hurt for children schooled at home to play athletics in the public schools?
    There certainly are plenty of rules that forbid that from happening here in Kentucky, and legal decisions from the courts to back them up, so spare me the usual oatmeal responses, please.
    Instead, answer the question as posed and tell me what it would actually hurt?
