  • Judge candidate defends using other's words on her website

    At least some of the writings presented on leadership and tourism on judge-executive hopeful Donna Drury’s campaign website aren’t her own, she acknowledged in an interview Tuesday afternoon.

    The material she used does not credit the actual authors of the work, but Drury said she doesn’t think it is necessary to do so because she claims to have their permission to use it.

    “These are personal friends of mine,” she said.

  • COLUMN: New kids' craze follows tradition of growing up

    Silly Bandz are, simply put, silly.

    They’re the new “it” thing to have for children everywhere, and they’ve caught on faster than H1N1 did this past fall.

    Among other things, there are animals, letters and dinosaurs to choose from. The possibilities seem limitless.

    But what’s the big deal?

    Silly Bandz are colored rubber bands molded in different shapes. Seriously, that’s it. Despite the simplicity of them, they’re selling faster than stores can keep them in stock.

    It’s insane.

  • COLUMN: Chamomile tea brings summer benefits

    Oh my, it’s July. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is calling for two degrees below normal temperatures and four inches of rain for the month. Now, if we can just split that rain into one inch a week, we’ll be set.

    These cool nights, while wonderful for our energy bills, can set us up for some vegetable problems in the garden. Keeping in mind that offense is our best defense, I’m recommending that we all break out the chamomile tea.

  • Bikes banned in skateboard park, for now

    The Anderson County Fiscal Court voted Tuesday morning to ban bicycles from the new skateboard park, at least temporarily.

    Magistrates unanimously approved the measure as part of adopting formal rules for the skateboard park, which opened earlier this summer.

    Magistrate Buddy Sims brought up the issue of bicycles, saying he knows little about skateboard parks but is concerned about the safety of having riders utilize the facility along with skateboarders.

    Steven and Dawn Royalty and Marla Corn Smith, all of Lawrenceburg, announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their children, Caitlyn Danielle Royalty and Robert Tyler Smith.

    She is a 2008 graduate of Anderson County High School and is currently attending the University of Kentucky, where she is expected to graduate in 2012 with a degree in kinesiology and health promotion.

  • LITTLE LEAGUE: Next up? The state tournament!

    Gloves were tossed in the air effortlessly as players jumped around in celebration. The manager of the Anderson County 11-and-under All-Stars, Tommy Rice, just about lost his voice and couldn’t break the smile from his face. Anderson County just won the District III Little League championship for the first time.

    Bryndon Labhart and Daniel Whalen grabbed each end of the championship banner and the team raced around the diamond in a victory lap giving high fives to parents and fans waiting along the fence. They were champions at last.

  • COLUMN: Memories of 2002

    Has it been eight years?

    Eight years, 2,922 days (or something close to that) since an Anderson County Little League All-Star baseball team advanced to the state tournament?

    The 11-year-old team broke that drought when it won the District 3 title Saturday night with an offensive onslaught that made final scores more gridiron-esque than fitting the diamond. Anderson County routed West Lexington, 19-7, in the final at Legion Park.

  • Lost and found

    Lana Trent’s emotions ran from panic to elation in just one afternoon.

    The panic set in when she realized that a prized family heirloom had slipped from her finger while she had lunch last month at a local restaurant.

    Hours later, elation set in when the ring she thought she’d never see again was back on her finger where it belongs.
