  • COLUMN: Almanac's October snow forecast a call to action

    Will someone please quit winding the clock? Time is moving way too fast. It’s almost October, though you couldn’t much tell it by the weather we’re having now.

    I brought out the Old Farmer’s Almanac to see what was forecast for October. On the plus side, it calls for 2.5 inches of rain. Rain showers, mixed with warm and sunny days, make up most of the month. One exciting note for the 21st through the 29th is snow showers. Kind of hard to imagine that right now.

  • Truck, tractor pull stirs interest in Burgoo

    When people think of truck and tractor pulls in Kentucky, it’s a good bet that Lawrenceburg is fast becoming the first location that comes to mind.

    Although shortened to just one day due to last Friday’s rainy weather, the Battle of the Bluegrass event in the county park proved successful and marks the second time in as many years that Lawrenceburg has played host to the largest outdoor pull in Kentucky, according to organizer Eddie Carey.

  • Lady Cats 'that close' to upsetting Top 5 team

    Just seconds after time had run out on Anderson County's upset bid against West Jessamine last Wednesday, Lady Bearcat assistant coach Jamey Earnest took out his frustration with a kick toward the nearest goal.

    Fittingly, it barely missed. The ball bounced, then went just inches over the crossbar.

    In the second half alone, the Lady Bearcats saw one shot carom off the cross bar, another hit an upright

    Just like so many other chances the home-standing Lady Bearcats had to knock off the state's top-ranked team.

    The home of a man suspected in the brutal slaying of a Mount Eden woman burned to the ground early last Wednesday morning in what investigators are calling a suspicious fire.

    Once the fire was extinguished, Anderson County Fire Chief Mike Barnes contacted the Kentucky State Police and asked that a K-9 unit with the Scott County Fire Department be brought in to investigate.
