  • COLUMN: Forgiving and forgiveness linked

    Feb. 6 marked the centennial of the birth of our 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan. A few years ago I read the then newly released The Reagan Diaries (HarperCollins, 2007), the edited personal daily entries of President Reagan, which he maintained during his eight-year presidency. One of the most interesting entries is the one from March 30, 1981 (the day he was shot by would-be assassin, John Hinckley):

  • POLL: Should golf carts be legal on city streets?

    Do you think the city should allow golf carts on city streets?

  • Young teacher’s death ‘shocking, scary’

    The sudden death of a 29-year-old teacher with flu-like symptoms has medical officials scrambling to figure out what killed her.

  • Principal pleads guilty to DUI

    Anderson County Middle School Principal Gina Fultz did not appear in court last week as she apparently entered a guilty plea before her scheduled court date.
    A representative from the Madison County district court clerk’s office confirmed Monday that the Feb. 8 court date for Fultz had been deleted and that there was a guilty plea in her DUI case.
    Calls to the Madison County Attorney’s office Monday afternoon for more information were not immediately returned.

  • Campaign sign limits now ‘dead’

    “Dead” is how Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway described his proposed ordinance that would have restricted the length of time campaign signs could be displayed before and after elections.
    Conway said he killed the proposed ordinance despite getting it approved on first reading during a previous fiscal court meeting.
    The ordinance would have allowed campaign signs be present only 45 days before and seven days after an election, an idea that wasn’t sitting well with some and in Maryland had been declared unconstitutional.

  • Rural polling spots restored, for now

    Four rural polling places were given a reprieve from their death sentences during Friday’s meeting of the Anderson County Board of Elections.

  • Head Start coworkers remember ‘great teacher, person’

    About 11 months ago, two women stood at the door of Rhonda Napier’s home getting ready to ask a favor of a woman they knew would help them in anyway she could.

  • Seven Bearcat wrestlers qualify for state

    CECILIA – The rankings meant little to Anderson County wrestlers on Saturday.

    While few gave the Bearcats much chance of making much noise in the Region 2 Tournament, held Saturday at Central Hardin High School, Anderson defied the rankings, qualifying seven wrestlers for the state meet.

  • Cotton's road to return qualifies as Biggest Winner

    Zach Cotton might have dropped nearly 100 pounds in the past year, but the only TV show he would ever make is “The Biggest Winner.”

    It makes little difference if he wins the heavyweight championship at this week's state wrestling tournament or even medals. Just being there after two years away from the sport puts the Anderson County High School senior among the class of the most successful.

  • Friday's big, but next week is coming

    It is the rivalry that has evolved into, well to be brutally honest, something less.

    Ok, Ok. Before you want to check my sanity when I make such a statement about Anderson County and Franklin County, hear me out.

    It’s still big, but no longer rates somewhere between Ultimate Smackdown and Armageddon.
