  • Wreck on 62 claims woman's life

    A Lawrenceburg woman was killed Saturday morning when the vehicle she was driving collided with another on Highway 62.

    Brenda Gail Napier, 29, of 1003 Langefield Drive in the Glenview subdivision was pronounced dead at scene at 9:55 a.m.

  • COLUMN: Real rivalry returns Friday night

    It isn't Odessa Permian vs. Midland Lee but a real live rivalry is this week's version of Friday Night Lights in Lawrenceburg.

    Make that a real live rivalry is hopefully coming back to life when Anderson hosts Mercer County. It has been been four years since they met and 13 years since the game has been for more than mere bragging rights.

    But that really never mattered. Many times when the Bearcats and Scotties tangled, which was most years from 1963 through 2005, bragging rights were all that mattered, just like it will be Friday night.

  • Russell, Cox team up to lead Bearcats past Mercer

    It was simply a matter of Anderson County recognizing Mercer County’s defense.

    Three times Anderson quarterback Jacob Russell and end Grant Cox noted a hole in the Titan defense when Mercer lined up in a certain coverage. Three times, the tandem struck on touch down passes of 47, 76 and 70 yards to lead the Bearcats to a 42-21 win before an overflow crowd at Warford Stadium.

    “I thought Jacob played big tonight,” said Anderson coach Mark Peach. “Cox was super."

  • Woodford pulls away from Lady Cats, clinches district's top seed

    Woodford County scored twice in the final 15:03 and it was enough to pull away from Anderson County. The visiting Yellow Jackets claimed a 3-1 win in a battle of Top 20 teams Wednesday night.

    The win, in all likelihood, clinched the top seed in the 25th District tournament for the Yellow Jackets. Anderson will be the two-seed.

    After a scoreless first half, Woodford County's Taylor Kelly put the fifth-ranked Jackets in front from the right wing, angling her shot just out of the reach of Anderson goalie Emily Mager.

  • ACE brochure in Wednesday's paper

    Anderson Community Education's annual fall brochure will be inserted in next week's edition of The Anderson News.

    The brochure outlines a host of the educational opportunities offered by ACE, along with classes that will be offered in the coming months.

  • Biggest regular-season game in program history?

    There is no such thing as a one-game season until the tournaments begin next month. Just don't tell those anticipating the girls' soccer showdown set to take place on the Anderson field tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 9.

    Anderson County vs. Woodford County.

    Or as they say on the east side of the Kentucky River, Woodford County vs. Anderson County.

    Last week's state coaches' poll says No. 5 (Woodford) vs. No. 15 (Anderson).

    Two weeks ago, that same poll said it was No. 7 vs. No. 8.

    'I can't beat the city' on wooden crosses

    To the editor:

    My dad and uncle’s wooden cross meant so much to my family that I have been battling the city for almost four months to keep it up in the cemetery.

    I’m sure the people in the community are tired of hearing about it.

    I have realized now I can’t beat the city. The city has won this fight.

  • COLUMN: Tell-tale signs say winter is just around the corner

    Happy September. Is it me, or is everyone else feeling fall in the air? Doesn’t it seem just a tid bit early?

    We were talking at the library the other day and someone had noticed the nuts dropping already. My friend Jane said the squirrels were just gobbling them up. You know what that means?

  • Bearcats looking to repeat success in CKC tourney

    It has been almost a year since the Anderson County boys' golf team captured its biggest win in many campaigns.

    After 18 holes of play, the Bearcats and Scott County were tied for the championship of the Central Kentucky Conference tournament. The playoff lasted just one hole as the Bearcats claimed their 2008 conference championship on their home course at Wild Turkey Trace.
