    The hits keep coming for local country music star Eddie Montomery, but not on the music charts.
    A lawsuit filed in Boyle Circuit Court by Central Bank and Trust Co. of Lexington claims Montgomery and his ex-wife Tracy Nunan owe nearly $12.7 million over the failed Eddie Montgomery Steak House in Harrodsburg.

  • October’s here so don’t forget to harvest next year’s seeds

    Happy October. The 10th month is upon us and it’s a very seedy time. It’s all I can do not to trim the faded flowers from the hydrangeas, echinacheas, cup plants and the myriad of other once blooming flowers that grace the farm. They look scraggly, but the birds love them. I got to enjoy the blooms all summer and fall so it’s only fitting that wildlife get to enjoy them now.

  • Romance blooms during Civil War skirmish

    The metal crane, with one video camera attached to its arm, slowly panned over the field to capture the sound of cannons, the snicker-snack of cavalry sword against sword and yells from Confederate soldiers as they died.
    The battles of Dogwalk and Lawrenceburg caught on film to be used as the backdrop of a larger love story.
    I’ve attended the Civil War re-enactment in Lawrenceburg for the last three years, listened to Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis trade speeches and steeled myself not to jump when cannons bellowed their first boom.

  • ‘Hypocrites’ on school board know they’re wrong on prayer

    I find it interesting that Roger McDowell, Anderson County School Board member, doesn’t know the teachings that his Bible teaches him.
    Matthew 6:6 is clearly against praying in public and that is straight from the big man’s mouth.
    “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou has shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly”
    The Bible is very clear; it even says that folks that pray openly are hypocrites, but who am I to judge?

  • My turn is next, queen of pranks

    There’s an old adage that says it’s a bad idea to argue with someone who buys ink by the gallon (that would be me).
    It’s also a bad idea to get into a prank war with someone like me, particularly when the prank involves purchasing an ad in The Anderson News Extra that pokes fun at me for turning 50 this week.
    Cheri Johnson, a health department nurse who fancies herself Lawrenceburg’s Queen of Pranks, did just that, placing an ad in Monday’s Extra in a somewhat lame attempt to exact a measure of revenge for a crime I did not commit.

    Reward offered for the recovery of cheerleading bag, backpack
    Parents of middle school student Taylor Ferry are looking for any information regarding the theft of Taylor’s cheerleading bag and backpack allegedly taken during last Friday’s homecoming football game.

  • Crouch sustains head, shoulder injuries in wreck

    A Lawrenceburg man is recovering after suffering a severe head injury last Thursday morning in a one-car wreck on Rice Road.
    Nick Crouch, 25, sustained head and shoulder injuries when the vehicle he was driving left the road and struck a tree around 6 a.m. near his home on Rice Road.
    “He had a pretty traumatic head injury,” his brother-in-law David Cartinhour said Monday afternoon by phone. “He also fractured his right shoulder. He’s doing pretty good and is up and around but he will be in the hospital for a while.”

  • Scores move district into top 25 in state

    Newly released state test results reported significant improvements for the district — moving Anderson County into the top 25 percent of districts across the state for its overall score — while highlighting work that still needs to be done on science, social studies and the ACT.
    Although the goal this year was to make the top 20 percent, administrators say they’re pleased with the 2012 test score results released by the Kentucky Department of Education last Friday.
