    50 YEARS AGO

    Thursday, Nov. 11, 1965

    Barn fires

    Barns on the farms of Mrs. J. L. Sherwood and William Parker at Alton burned.

    The contents of both barns were destroyed. The Sherwood barn had tobacco and farm machinery in it and the Parker barn was filled with hay, tobacco, lumber, a tractor and disc harrow that were lost.

    Two workmen were shredding fodder at the Parker farm when the fire broke out and quickly spread over the barn.

  • Finally acknowledging God hunger

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    We were eating pizza — thin crust, perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?

  • Man airlifted following wreck in Tyrone

    A 19-year-old man had to be airlifted to an area hospital after the car he was driving struck a phone pole and tree around 4:15 this afternoon on Bishop Street in Tyrone.

    Marcus Beasley sustained head and chest injuries after his car veered off Bishop Street. It sideswiped a phone pole, continued on and struck a tree just several yards in front of a child’s swingset.

    Witnesses said he was driving much too fast for the narrow street when his car missed a curve and crashed.

  • Covington Catholic dominates, ends Anderson season

    Host Covington Catholic exploded in the third quarter, scoring 20 unanswered points, on its way to a 47-21 romp over Anderson County in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs Friday night. The game was played at Dixie Heights High School.

    Anderson saw its season end at 5-6, the Bearcats' first losing season since 2005. Covington Catholic, a deceptive 4-7, moves on to play at Madison Southern in the second round of the playoffs.

  • Records mean little as second season is here

    Anderson County sits on a 5-5 record. Covington Catholic, a perennial football power, saw its football team end the regular season at 3-7.

    As far as either team is concerned, they are 0-0.

    That kind of viewpoint might be considered a cliché, but it really rings true. When the ball is teed up Friday, the only bearing that the just completed regular season can have is on where a game will be played.
