    Truck, tractor pull not a benefit to our ears

    To the editor:

    I read your comments in the last edition of The Anderson News regarding the truck and tractor pulls held at the county park. I understand the benefits to the community of holding events such as these in the county. However, there is a downside that you did not mention.

  • Cornish anniversary

    Steve and Kathy Cornish will celebrate their 37th wedding anniversary on May 26, 2010.

    They were married May 26, 1973 at Lawrenceburg First Baptist Church by Bro. Bob Jones.

    They have one son, Derek, 29.

    Mrs. Cornish is a daughter of Pauline Kyler and the late J.W. Kyler of Lawrenceburg.

    Mr. Cornish is a son of Harold and Phyllis Cornish of Lawrenceburg.

    The couple plans to celebrate with a dinner and by taking a trip out west this summer. 

  • COLUMN: Time in Tyrone would be good for us all

    It was a warning I dismissed almost immediately, not because I am brave, but mostly because I hate being told I can’t do something.

    “Welcome to Anderson County, but if you know what’s good for you, you’d better stay out of Tyrone,” a few folks told me when I arrived in town four years ago.

    “Not even the police like to go down there,” they said.

  • COLUMN: This spring, beware the emerald ash borer

    Welcome, May. The ducks are on the pond and the locust is in bloom. Spring really has sprung. I love to watch the trees leaf out and admire the hundreds of shades of green that end up painting the landscape. Out here in the country, we’ve got lots of trees, but some are growing purple boxes.

  • COLUMN: Pray for those who are still weathering the storm

    This weekend, I was one of the lucky ones.

    Most of us were.

    Rain fell at a steady pace in Lawrenceburg for nearly two days, and aside from the small stream that developed in my front yard, I escaped unscathed.

    Though I saw the rain falling outside my window, it was hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that some of my neighbors were flooded from their homes, watching the water pile up in their back yards from neighbors’ porches.

  • BOYS' TENNIS: Bearcats hope secret is out at regionals

    Anderson County might just be the best-kept secret in Eighth Region boys' tennis.

    No, the Bearcats are not expected to be one of the teams that advances to the state tournament next week. Nor are they expected to have any individual qualifiers in what is arguably Kentucky's toughest region outside the Louisville, Lexington and northern Kentucky areas.

    But that does not mean Anderson can't make some noise. And with a little bit of luck, Anderson could have a chance to have its first state qualifier in five years.

    But it will be tough.

  • Search begins for new high school principal

    The council met Monday afternoon and spoke with Superintendent Kim Shaw about the search process.
