    Despite advertisements and debates to the contrary, attorney general candidates Jack Conway and Todd P’Pool do have a few things in common.
    Conway, the democratic candidate and current attorney general, will face P’Pool, the republican candidate, on Election Day, Nov. 8.
    Conway, 42, believes his record shows his dedication to the attorney general’s office, a position he has held since 2008.

  • Like time, snowflakes will soon fly by

    It’s the little things that count, you know.
    The delightful giggle of an innocent child, the playful antics of a puppy or a simple compliment from a friend are all examples of little things. Little things make you laugh, smile and generally feel better.
    It’s the minutes that make the hours and the hours that make the days, that combine to make the ‘Oh my gosh, it’s November!” moment.

  • Remember guidelines when going out to vote

    With less than a week before Election Day, I thought I would address some key issues that will help the process run smoother.
    Many voters don’t know which precinct they live in. There are several ways to find out. You may call our office at 839-3041 or you may go to the state Board of Elections website at www.elect.ky.gov. You will then be able to see which precinct you are in and where you go to vote. A map of each precinct in Anderson County can be viewed on our website at http://andersoncountyclerk.ky.gov.  

  • Trent wins individual title at world archery tournament

     

     

    When it comes to Kenzie Trent and her sport, you might just say she is on target.

  • Mourning having missed memorable Game 6

    I missed the most memorable game in World Series history.  
    And it’s killing me.
    You’ve all probably moved on from last week’s Fall Classic.
    But I haven’t.
    If I were a true fan, I suppose I would have moved mountains to watch the late night Game 6 dramatics between the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals.  
    But I can’t bear the start and stop of slow online streaming and that dreaded spinning rainbow wheel.

  • A case for, against health director

    The Anderson County Board of Health will likely decide the fate of embattled health director Brandon Hurley when it meets Thursday night.
    This newspaper has not endorsed keeping him or firing him, and will not do so here. Instead, we’ll examine the pros and cons of each.
    First some background. Hurley has been health director for about three years. Soon after he came aboard, the health board — an unelected group of residents with varied professional backgrounds — continued a decade-long discussion on whether to construct a new building.

  • Honor veterans Sunday at Legion

    A Veterans Day celebration sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary will be held Sunday, Nov. 6 at American Legion Post 34.

  • COLUMN: Bearcat-Dragon matchup sets up unbelievability

    You can try all you want, but nothing that will happen when Anderson County and South Oldham tangle Friday night will top the last time the teams met.


    I guess it would be possible but finding a football game to top that one on the unbelievable scale – from 1 to 10, it was a 15 – will be about like finding someone that can act better than Tom Hanks, rock better than Mick Jagger or tickle a fiddle better than Charlie Daniels.

    You might find one, but just don’t count on it.


    Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • Homeschool students stage protest


    Lawrenceburg home school students occupied a different kind of classroom last Thursday — a sit-in in the Kentucky governor’s hallway.
    Sporting blue and green tie-dyed T-shirts, about 10 home school students held up handmade posters detailing the correlation between mountain removal and coal mining to mercury in fish. Some of the younger students handed out business cards with EPA facts and poll sheets.  But as members of the First Lego League, these students weren’t only protesting.
    They were competing.
