  • No poop, no playground

    Clean up your animal poop in the county park and keep dogs off the playground.

    That was the message magistrates sent during last Tuesday morning’s meeting of the Anderson County Fiscal Court.

    The poop-scoop and playground decisions took roughly an hour to reach, as magistrates haggled over what dogs will be allowed to do in the park now and in the future.

    At one point, a vote that would have kicked dogs off nearly every portion of the park aside from the walking track ended in a 3-3 tie, which means it lost.

  • Tragedy narrowly averted when car, train collide

    Had the train been going a hair faster or the vehicle a hair slower, tragedy would likely have been the result last Thursday morning.

    Fortunately for Lisa Chesser of Willisburg, her battle with a train that foggy morning ended with her being shaken up and the rear bumper of her SUV being torn off.

    It could have been much, much worse, experts said.

  • Sheriff files for re-election

    Sheriff Troy Young announced Monday that he will seek another term in office during the 2010 elections.

    Young said he filed a letter of intent to seek re-election with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, freeing him up to take campaign donations.

    “Over the past few weeks I have been humbled at the overwhelming number of Anderson County citizens asking me if I’m going to run to continue serving the county in the next election, when the next election is and how they can help,” Young said.

  • Wooden crosses issue still unresolved

    The debate over wooden monuments in Lawrenceburg Cemetery is still ongoing despite two city meetings in the past week in which the issue was discussed.

    The city’s Public Works Committee met last Thursday, and the issue was brought before the full council on Monday night.

    After hearing from six concerned, and at times emotional, citizens during Monday night’s meeting, the issue was bounced back to the Public Works Committee for further discussion.

  • THE SPORTS BUZZ for Aug. 15: Bearcats were impressive in scrimmage

    It is sometimes extremely hard to get a read on a football team in a scrimmage setting but it was clear on Friday night that Anderson County has the potential to be a very special football team in 2009. The Bearcats dominated Lincoln County in every way possible and it could have been worse than it was. Scores are not kept in such scrimmages, but this one was played in game conditions. About the only differences from real game situations were some extra protections against kick returners and no defensive rush on extra point attempts.

  • SPORTS BUZZ for Aug. 12: Catching up on things

    Just catching up on a few things as fall sports are getting into full swing....

    First, the Anderson County volleyball game at Cornerstone Christian, scheduled for Monday night, Aug. 17, has been canceled. Cornerstone also canceled the return match set for later in the season at Anderson and has apparently canceled the boys' basketball game set for this fall, according to Anderson athletic director Rick Sallee.

  • Directions to Lincoln County High School

    Here are directions to Lincoln County High School for the Anderson County vs. Lincoln County football scrimmage on Friday, Aug. 14

    Take 127 South to Highway 150 East in Danville. (127 actually goes to the right at the intersection, stay straight, which will put you on 150.) Take 150 to Highway 27 in Stanford. Turn right on 27, go about three miles and the school is on the left.

  • No Repeat Performances

    The year has begun the same way but Anderson County's girls' soccer team does not want a repeat performance from 2008.

    The Lady Bearcats already have a gold medal from the Bluegrass State games and a win over perennial power South Oldham, just as last summer. But reality is sometimes a harsh teacher: Not one of those victories really mattered.

    Nice and prestigious, for sure, but they were till scrimmages.

    Anderson hopes to have learned the hard lesson a year ago.

  • Lady Cats' volleyball opens with win

    The Anderson County volleyball team opened its season with a win over Mercer County on Tuesday night. The Lady Bearcats cruised to a 25-18 victory in game one, a win that was never in doubt, but had to hang on for a 25-23 victory in game two. Mental errors were the main culprit in the second game but the Lady Bearcats got big games from Chelsea Payne and Hannah Smith at the net for the victory.

    Assistant coach Bob Hardin led the Bearcats as head coach Jason McDannold did not make his debut. McDannold was tending to a family illness.
