  • 'I'm in it to win it'

    Rumor became reality Monday when Magistrate John Wayne Conway confirmed he will run for Anderson County judge-executive next year.

    Conway, who represents the county’s 6th District, became the first Democrat to toss his hat in the ring against incumbent Steve Cornish, who has not publicly announced if he will seek re-election. Donna Drury announced that she will run earlier this year as an independent candidate.

    Conway said he has been considering a run for judge-executive for months, and that it’s time to make it official.

  • COLUMN: Fall's onset means it's time to put gardens to bed

    I was driving home just after dusk the other night and caught a whiff of watermelons in the air.

    It was cut grass, but to me it smelled like watermelon. It was like a last hoorah of summer.

    Well, autumn did officially begin yesterday. I know the cycle of life includes all four seasons, but I do hate to see the warm one go. But, go it must.

    I’m sure I’m not the only gardener that dreads putting the garden to bed. Now if I were getting ready to plant, I’d be raring to go.

  • Mr. Russell's neighborhood

    NEW CASTLE -- On the stat sheet, it was almost an after-thought.

    Trailing 28-7 midway through the third quarter, Henry County was threatening to make a game of it again, having driven from its own nine yard line to the Anderson County six. A Henry receiver, who shall remain unnamed, took a short pass then turned up field.

    The stat sheet simply recorded a tackle by Jacob Russell.

    Reality recorded, “BOOM!” And a whole lot of “Ohhhh!” from the crowd.

    Welcome to the Mr. Russell’s Neighborhood.
