  • Fall turkey hunting a challenge for hunters

    By Art Lander

    Hunting strategies are different, calling is not as critical to success, and birds are often in big flocks, concentrating on local food sources – everything about fall wild turkey hunting makes it more challenging than the spring season.
    The key to success in the spring is getting close to gobbling toms and seducing them into gun range with subtle hen calls such as clucks, purrs and yelps. Communication between the sexes is a major part of the mating ritual.

  • COLUMN: Fall hunting season is here

    Fall colors, gotta love’em. Even with the drought we have going on, God still gives us a show for free. It never ceases to amaze me how the seasons come and go and how each one of them has its own unique characteristics and fan base. I’m partial to fall for obvious reasons like most hunting seasons are at their peak and the temperatures allow me to open up the windows and turn down the electric company’s little money maker.

  • Cops pop suspected pill pushers

    Five people, including a 74-year-old man, were arrested Sunday for allegedly trafficking Oxycodone-type prescription medication, according to a news release from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.

  • Voters head to polls on Tuesday

    Will it be Chambers, Conway or Drury for judge-executive?
    Can incumbent Troy Young fend off a second challenge in a year, this one from sheriff hopeful Jeff McCormick?
    Will the six current members of city council survive, or will a newcomer pick off one, two or more?
    Then there’s the mudslinging foursome of Jack Conway vs. Rand Paul and Ben Chandler vs. Andy Barr. Who will win those races?
    The answer to all of those questions will perhaps be decided next Tuesday when Anderson Countians go to the polls to vote in the Nov. 2 general election.
