  • Woodford strikes, clinches district's top seed

    Editor's Note: See more photos of the Anderson-Woodford game in the slideshow located at the bottom of our homepage.

    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.

  • Man charged with stealing guns, vehicles, running cops off road

  • 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.

  • Civil War reenactment to expand

    The Civil War reenactment at this year’s Burgoo Festival is expected to be bigger and better than last year’s — and it will be in a different location.

    Marva Gill, one of the founding mothers of the Burgoo Festival, said the group has moved its reenactment to the Anderson County Community Park.

    The extra space is allowing the reenactment to draw more participants, according to Jim Bowen, one of the reenactors.

  • COLUMN: J-Town is not your normal homecoming night date

    A homecoming opponent is supposed to be a football game against one of those teams that is the equivalent of an open date.

    You know what I am talking about. You look at the schedule, pick out one of your home games in the middle of the year and say, “This one is the one that we should be able to throw our helmets on the field, have a good time, win and then go dancing.”

    The official homecoming-picker must have had some blinders on when that choice was Jeffersontown.

  • COLUMN: If you're hunting, be safe, legal

    Ah, going outside on a cool morning just before daylight with your father, mother or other family member.

    Watching carefully and being as quiet as you can as you listen closely to the rustle of leaves. Then getting an adrenaline rush as you see a deer come out of the woods.

    While not everyone is a hunter, some of us are and it’s always exciting. I’m a hunter. My dad and I go during the season and we know the importance of being safe, legal and responsible.

  • Letters to the editor - 9.23

    Health chair should be open minded or resign

    To the editor:

    I attended the Anderson County Board of Health meeting, August 23, 2009 to express my concern about the ordinance concerning septic systems. This meeting was for the public to make comments about the current ordinance.

    The board of health stated that this ordinance was in the best interest of Anderson County due to groundwater and public health concerns over failing septic systems. However, the board could not produce facts as to why a system would need pumping every three years.

  • Semi crashes on Bluegrass Parkway

    A semi tractor and trailer crashed just before 2 a.m. Thursday on the Bluegrass Parkway, according to a news release from the Anderson County Sheriff's Office.

    The single vehicle crash occurred at the 51-mile marker in the eastbound lanes.

    One person was transported to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center with undetermined injuries, the news release said.

    At least one lane is now open to traffic.

    According to the news release, the crash is still under investigation.

  • COLUMN: There’s plenty to love about fall

    Yesterday was the first official day of fall — one of my favorite seasons.

    Last year, I wrote about how much I love the smell of fall and how my husband pointed out that that means I must love the smell of dead leaves. Well, so be it. But I won’t bore you with that two years in a row.

    Last week, as we were tossing around ideas for a poll question on our website, it occurred to me that fall was literally just a week away. So, we decided to find out what you — our readers — love most about fall.
