  • COLUMN: Tell-tale signs say winter is just around the corner

    Happy September. Is it me, or is everyone else feeling fall in the air? Doesn’t it seem just a tid bit early?

    We were talking at the library the other day and someone had noticed the nuts dropping already. My friend Jane said the squirrels were just gobbling them up. You know what that means?

  • Bearcats looking to repeat success in CKC tourney

    It has been almost a year since the Anderson County boys' golf team captured its biggest win in many campaigns.

    After 18 holes of play, the Bearcats and Scott County were tied for the championship of the Central Kentucky Conference tournament. The playoff lasted just one hole as the Bearcats claimed their 2008 conference championship on their home course at Wild Turkey Trace.

  • Fans, Peach glad Mercer back on schedule

    Mark Peach had heard the criticisms.

    They started coming his way in 2006, his second season coaching football at Anderson County, and intensified the following year. Even though the Bearcats went undefeated in the regular season, there were some that were focused on pointing out that some traditional rivals had disappeared from the schedule.

    At or near the top of that list of wished-for opponents was Mercer County, a team the Bearcats had played on a near annual basis for nearly 30 years.

  • COLUMN: Simple precautions can help avoid flu

    Swine flu, the flu and cold season. They’re all scary things to even think about and dread. Winter and fall are two great seasons, but the one thing that makes them bad is the flu and colds.

    The flu can turn deadly if not taken care of, as can a simple cold. That’s all the more reason to remind ourselves of how to stay away from them.

  • EDITORIAL: Lead, follow or get out of the way

    Want to know a dirty little secret?

    People who live in bedroom communities are eventually taxed to death — unless they leave before they die.

    That fate can be foiled, but only if that bedroom community wakes up in time to realize that adding an economic development base to its mix can stave off its demise.

  • Local Huddle House featured in contest-winning video

    Phil Roberts is only Huddle House’s second biggest fan.

    Who’s the first? His family.

    Even so, all six members of the Roberts clan took home top honors in the “I Love Huddle House” nationwide video contest.

    Roberts and his family (wife, Lisa; 5-year-old daughter, Ashley; and 3-year-old triplets, Benjamin, Casey and Danielle) live in Lexington, but filmed their video at the closest Huddle House to them, which is here in Lawrenceburg.
