  • VOLLEYBALL: Stellar season ends in semis

    Few gave Anderson County a chance to win the Eighth Region volleyball tournament. Not with three ranked teams in the fray and the Lady Bearcats still not knowing how good they really were.

    Simon Kenton punctuated those questions with a resounding 3-0 win over the Lady Bearcats in the tournament semi-finals last Wednesday at Shelby County High School. The Pioneers (ranked 21st in the final statewide poll) were every bit as good as advertised as they ended Anderson's season.

  • Why are there so many religions?

    You drive around Lawrenceburg and see Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian and Catholic churches.
    There are, of course, many other religions world wide.
    When people ask why there are so many different religions, I have a fairly simple response. Like my preacher would say, there are really only two types of religion — religion of do or done — the difference being one is based on human accomplishment and one is based on divine achievement.
