  • Portrait of a Lawrenceburg fifth grader as a young artist

    Leawna Isham, 10, simply put her head in her hands when asked what she would do if she broke both of her hands tomorrow, eliminating her favorite hobby — drawing.
    That, and she said she would throw “the world’s largest tantrum.”
    The Saffell Street Elementary fifth grader loves to draw, especially characters in anime, a particular and popular Japanese animation featured in numerous television shows in Asia, as well as in the Western world.

  • Students get jump start on college through dual-credit program

    The dual-credit program allows high school students to get a taste of college academics without having to leave home.
    Or, in some cases, without having to leave their high school classrooms.
    This is the first year that high school juniors — specifically those who have met the college readiness benchmarks on the ACT or COMPASS exams — can sign up for dual-credit courses and attend the local college, or take them on-campus at the high school.

  • Judge-Executive proposes buying pothole-patching machine

    Patching paved roads and fixing potholes is expensive and doesn’t work very well.
    That was the message Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway delivered to the Anderson County Fiscal Court last Tuesday night, along with a means of fixing the problem.

  • Spring brings tax deadline, absentee voting

    Spring is upon us. April is normally associated with rain, flowers or pollen, but at the county clerk’s office it is about boat license, delinquent taxes and absentee voting.
    Let’s begin with boats. All boat taxes and renewal decals are due in April.
    All delinquent taxes are transferred from the sheriff’s office to the county clerk’s office on April 16 at the close of business. If you haven’t paid your property taxes, do so before that date.
