  • Neighbors save Alton Station man from drowning

    William Hainline can’t swim.

    So when he climbed into a small boat Sunday to put a fountain in his pond without wearing a life jacket, even he admits it wasn’t the brightest thing he has ever done.

    “I just sink like a rock, so not having a life jacket on is the stupidest thing a person can do,” Hainline said Monday morning. “If my neighbors hadn’t been there, I would have been a goner just due to my own stupidity.”

  • COLUMN: Why Anderson teams will be playing at state and why they won't

    It all starts for real Monday night at Anderson County High School.

    The Bearcats and Lady Bearcats begin their quests for state tournament berths as they will be hosting the 30th District baseball and softball tournaments, respectively. It is believed to be the first time that both tourneys have been held at Anderson at the same time.

  • City launches farmers market

    Getting a basket of fresh fruit or vegetables will be even easier May 29 when a farmers market opens on Lawrenceburg Green, behind Town & Country Bank.

    Mayor Edwinna Baker announced the opening date Friday, saying the goal is to bring more people to downtown Lawrenceburg and allow local growers a place to display their goods.

    “We are very excited about this idea,” she said. “We really hope people will rediscover downtown Lawrenceburg.”

  • COLUMN: Does it ever get tiring to be a Wildcat?

    As giddy as a school girl.

    That’s how I described my mood after having my picture taken with University of Kentucky men’s basketball player Ramon Harris at Friday’s DARE graduation. And I know I wasn’t the only one.

    “That’s Harris! That’s him right there!” I heard one DARE graduate shout in disbelief while standing about 10 feet in front of the senior Wildcat who graduated last weekend.

    “I’ll never wash my hand again,” said another after getting a high-five.
