  • Tuesday hearing scheduled for ex-youth pastor

    The ex-youth pastor accused of raping and sodomizing two teenagers in 1992 is scheduled to appear in Anderson County Circuit Court on Tuesday, Oct. 6.

    Gordon Lunceford, 46, is on Tuesday’s docket for a status hearing at 9 a.m.

    Lunceford faces 13 counts of rape, sodomy and sexual abuse of two children, one under 16 and the other under 14 at the time.

    At least one of the alleged victims came forward last summer and Kentucky State Police launched an investigation in August.

  • 'Making it happen'

    Over the years, when John Pitts drove past the Lawrenceburg campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College, he thought to himself, “If I get a chance to go to college, that’s where I want to go.”

    Pitts, 44, started his first full year at the college this fall, but he didn’t quite think it would happen this way.

    He worked for four years at Topy America in Frankfort making aluminum wheels, but two years ago, the company decided to stop producing its aluminum line, and with that decision went over 200 jobs.

  • Bearcats pull away from J-town, remain unbeaten

    (Editor's note: After the following story had been filed, Anderson County special teams coach Kevin Ray contacted The Anderson News to note that Steven Sims also got a piece of the blocked extra point.)

    Special teams really were special for Anderson County on Friday night.

  • Lafayette golfer ousts last Anderson hope in sudden death playoff

    Lafayette's Kelly Crawford birdied the par-5 tenth hole at Wild Turkey Trace to defeat Anderson County's Taylor Gillis in a sudden death playoff for the final individual state golf tournament berth Tuesday evening.

    Crawford used a great approach shot, coming within about six feet of the pin, then sinking her first putt. Gillis had played the hole well, but missed her chance for a birdie when a 25-foot putt just missed the hole. Gillis, who had qualified for the state tournament last year, parred her hole but could only helplessly watch as Crawford sank her putt.

  • Happy ending this time

    ELIZABETHTOWN – The story was the same but there was a much sweeter ending this time.

    All season long, Anderson County's girls' soccer team had been playing the same act with the same ending – go against some of the state's best, often play the socks off them, only to have to settle for a “we'll get 'em next time” and the drive to learn from what might have gone wrong.

    Until Saturday, that is.

    DRY RIDGE – By game time Friday night, the heavy rains had stopped at Grant County, but the deluge, Anderson County style, was only about to begin.

    On their way to a 41-0 romp, the Bearcats unleashed a third quarter torrent that drowned any inkling of a Grant miracle. Anderson scored three touchdowns in less than six minutes, finding the end zone twice on plays longer than 50 yards and blocking a punt for the other score.

    VERSAILLES – It was prophetic that weather issues moved Thursday's District 25 soccer showdown to Woodford County.

    The Yellow Jackets struck quicker than lightning and had an effect just as devastating in Woodford's 4-1 win over Anderson County.

  • White crowned Miss ACHS

    After making sure the correct contestant number had been called, Allie White danced her way to being crowned the second ever Miss ACHS.

    When the final results were announced Sunday night, White’s name was called, but with the wrong contestant number. When the emcee called the correct number, White did a little dance — as she promised her family and friends — then accepted the crown and the title.
