  • Stingy Oldham County shuts down Bearcats

    BUCKNER – Oldham County should really consider changing its mascot.

    Nothing wrong with that genteel Southern Colonel that bears a bit of resemblance to Col. Sanders, mind you. But these guys are more like Col. Patton. Or Col. Schwarzkopf. Or any other military hero on his way to general.

  • COLUMN: Get prepared for winter to help save on energy bills

    As the leaves go from green to gold, and the makings for compost blanket the lawn, I have one constant chore, removing sticktights. Walking the farm leaves me covered with the little seeds that attach themselves to almost everything.

    Spanky and Tiller get covered from head to toe causing me to keep the brushes by the back door. I’ve learned to wear nylon. I really believe that some scientist ought to study those little seeds and make them the “new” Velcro of our time.

    Where’s ‘revolt’ over sewer billing?

    To the editor:

    Have any citizens written opinions to The Anderson News about the sewer billing in Lawrenceburg?

    I’m surprised people haven’t begun a revolt.

    We live in Briar Creek and recently had to water quite a bit outside to get new grass to germinate before cold weather (we did have a dry spell in September) and I just received my water bill for the month.

  • Mustangs two steps closer to state title

    The Anderson County Middle School football team navigated the first two steps in its quest for a state championship last week when the Mustangs defeated Grant County and Lexington Catholic on the field at Anderson County High School.

    The Mustangs move on to play the winner of Johnson Central and Rowan County in the state semi-finals on Saturday night, Oct. 31 at Lexington Catholic High School. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

  • No fancy passing in regional semifinals

    SHELBYVILLE – When tournament time rolls around, volleyball is just like any other sport.

    Then the stakes are the greatest, it is the smallest aspects of the game that make the difference.

    Such was the case Wednesday night when Oldham County ended Anderson County's season with a 25-10, 25-17 decision in the semi-finals of the Eighth Region Tournament at Shelby County High School.

    Oldham went on to upset North Oldham in the championship game to advance to this week's state tournament, being held at Regents Hall at Northern Kentucky University.

  • Health board to discuss controversial septic tank ordinance

    The Anderson County Board of Health is scheduled to discuss its controversial septic tank pumping ordinance when it meets Wednesday night.

    The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 in the lower level of the Anthony D. Stratton building in the county park.

    The ordinance drew substantial criticism at a board meeting earlier this year when about 50 people attended, most voicing their displeasure and saying the ordinance needs to be overturned.

  • Cornish out of sex toy, porn lawsuit

    Steve Cornish is no longer being sued personally by a woman who claims he allowed her to be both sexually harassed and exposed to sex toys and pornography.

    He is still part of her lawsuit, but now only in his position as Anderson County judge-executive.

    Cornish was personally cleared Oct. 15 in Anderson Circuit Court when a judge approved his motion for summary judgment.

  • EMS workers get H1N1 shots

    Chances of a patient contracting the H1N1 or “swine” flu virus from an EMS employee went down considerably last Thursday morning.

    All EMS employees were offered free vaccinations against the disease in an effort to ensure they are able to do their jobs in the event of a massive outbreak, and to make sure they aren’t spreading it around.

    The Anderson County Health Department had a limited supply of the vaccine available, and Ambulance Director Bart Powell said it was critical for his employees to be among the first in line to get a dose.

  • Five injured in wreck on North Main

    A four-vehicle wreck on North Main Street at Bell Street sent five people to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

    However, none of the injuries appeared to be severe or life threatening, said Lawrenceburg Police Officer Nathan Doty.

    Names of those in the accident have not been released.

    Two vehicles collided sending one of them into another vehicle and that vehicle into another.

    “It was kind of a chain reaction, or domino effect,” Doty said.
