  • COLUMN: Drury at brink of another milestone

    Chances are that few, if any, of the current Anderson County Bearcats will know about what they will be playing for this weekend until they read this column.

    That would suit Coach Glen Drury just fine.

    In fact, he would be more than OK if I never mentioned that he is on the threshhold of 400 coaching victories. But that would be a disservice to you.

    And to Drury.

  • COLUMN: The Burke family trip from you-know-where

    Since this is my first column in The Anderson News, I wanted to tell how I ended up in Lawrenceburg. I was born in Kentucky, but after a few years in college I found my way to the West Coast. I spent 20 years in Northern California, met my husband and had my children there. In 1996, we decided to move back to Kentucky. We chose Lawrenceburg because we had a farm here.

  • Net result: Barosso honored for tennis work

    When Leony Barosso is recognized as Kentucky’s tennis Volunteer of the Year on Saturday night, there is little doubt that the award is well-deserved.

    And that it is probably inadequate to recognize what Barosso, who moved to Anderson County four years ago, has done for the local tennis scene.

  • Nothing fancy, just results for Bearcats

    GOSHEN — There was no macho chest bumping. No yapping. No arm marked with tattoos.

    Just results. Lots of results.

    Jacob Russell simply reached down and helped someone up. Of course, just a few seconds earlier, the poor soul had been trying to keep the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Russell from scoring last Thursday night.

    Unsuccessfully, of course.

    Russell powered, twisted, bulled, shot mid-range jumpers and did about anything else he pleased in leading Anderson County to a hard-fought 51-48 win at North Oldham last Tuesday night.

  • Election filing deadline is Tuesday

  • Wreck kills Salvisa woman

    A Salvisa woman died Wednesday after her vehicle collided with another on U.S. 127 just inside the Anderson County line.

    Rosemary B. Spurlock, 65, was leaving a business on 127 and attempting to cross both northbound lanes to go south toward Mercer County, according to a news release from Kentucky State Police.

    A Toyota Camry driven by Francis R. Downs, 28, of Bardstown, was traveling north on 127 and struck Spurlock’s Chevy Malibu in the driver’s door, the news release said.

    Anderson County fire and EMS removed Spurlock from the vehicle.

  • KU wants to zap electric bills 13.7%

    Kentucky Utilities wants to raise residential electric rates 13.7 percent, and some of its customers are speaking out against the request.

    The company says the increase is needed to cover growing demand for electricity, higher operating costs and to offset its $133.7 million investment following a major windstorm in 2008 and ice storm in 2009.

    The company has 6,378 residential and business customers in Anderson County. The company’s overall request is for an 11.5 percent increase, which includes an 11.1 percent increase for industrial customers.

  • 'Christian and I came out alive'

    A Frankfort mother and son with Lawrenceburg ties were scheduled to arrive back in the United States on Tuesday night after spending nearly two weeks in Haiti.

    Danyelle Kincaid, 32, and her 12-year-old son, Christian, were part of a mission group from Capital City Christian Church in Frankfort that left for Haiti on Jan. 7.

    The group was scheduled to return late last Thursday night, but a Jan. 12 earthquake demolished much of the already impoverished area, flattening buildings and leaving thousands dead.
