  • Accused teen rapist pleads not guilty

    The man accused of raping a 15-year-old girl while she was unconscious was arraigned Tuesday morning in Anderson Circuit Court and entered a plea of not guilty.
    Jeffrey Wayne Knight, 18, of 1282 Aaron Barnett Road, was indicted Feb. 22 by the Anderson County Grand Jury. He is charged with first-degree rape of a person incapable of consent/physically helpless.
    Knight allegedly got the victim high on marijuana and drunk on whiskey last Nov. 12 at an address in Lawrenceburg.

  • We're lazy

    Doing a deep knee bend to pick up the remote control doesn’t count, nor does waddling to the fridge for another slab of pie or a Bud Light.

    But for an unhealthy number Anderson County residents those examples are as close to exercise as they get, and their laziness hadn’t gone unnoticed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a three-year study of Anderson County adults’ exercise habits and the results show that we’re lazier than the state average and much lazier than the national average.

  • Gardening is a marathon, not a sprint

    I’m watching and listening as spring rolls closer.
    I’m watching the wild onions, crocus and lilies pop up.  The green is growing.
    Listening for the sounds of spring means new bird songs greet my day and the ever-wonderful tree frogs serenade my nights. Hoosier that I am, I liken it to the Indianapolis 500. The cars are rolling up to the line and the engines are roaring.
    The trick with the gardening race is to remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint. That doesn’t mean we’re not supposed to peel out.

  • No reason to keep using Frankfort’s jail

    Column as I see ’em …
    The days of taxpayers here subsidizing the jail in Franklin County should be over.
    Our inmates can be transported to the moon for all I care, so long as our police officers and jailer never again have to deal with Franklin County Jailer Billy Roberts.
    During last Tuesday’s fiscal court meeting, our jailer, Joani Clark, had finally had enough and told magistrates about Roberts’ behavior, and that she is negotiating with Shelby County to move our inmates there.

  • Four Lady Bearcats named to All-Tournament Team

    Anderson County basketball players Destiny Stewart, Sydney Brown, Makenzie Cann and Eriel McKee were named to the All-Eighth Region Tournament team by the region’s coaches. The team was announced following Saturday’s regional championship game at Gallatin County High School.

  • Dynasty Delayed

    WARSAW -- There was no coronation. No celebration. Just stunned looks and tears.

    Anderson County's expected dynasty will have to wait another year or two.

    Walton-Verona's Courtney Sandlin saw to that when she sank a 10-foot jumper with 12 seconds to play giving her team a 40-39 win over defending regional titlist Anderson County in the girls' Eighth Region basketball tournament final at Gallatin County High School.

  • COLUMN: Clock error a tough call

    There are so many different hats to wear when writing local sports. Usually, they all fit together very nicely and all is well.

    Sports writers are fans. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Most of all they are fans of the games. If they were not, they would be writing about lesser things like gas prices, budget deficits and other things that are secondary to March Madness.

  • Bearcat baseball alumni invited to play again
