  • 2000-2009: A decade in review

    It all seemed simple enough.

    Anderson News general manager Ben Carlson needed someone to compile a list of the top stories making the news in Anderson County over the past 10 years.

    As a former editor/publisher of the News before retiring in 2006, he felt I might be interested in undertaking the project.

    He mentioned coming up with a top five or top 10.

    I hadn’t made much progress on an attempt to review the front pages of some 520 issues before reaching a decision.

    Limiting the stories to five or 10 wasn’t going to be an easy task.

    According to a special weather statement issued this afternoon by the National Weather Service, as the snow tapers off, high winds may become the main threat in the area.

    "As the snow ends a cold front will usher in west winds of 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts," according to the statement from the weather service. "These winds will cause significant blowing and drifting snow."

  • Lady Bearcats have busy week

    The Anderson County girls' basketball team will have a pair of tests sandwiched around what looks to be a district mismatch in the coming week.

    Anderson will host Oldham County in the first game of a girl-boy doubleheader Friday, Jan. 8 at 6 p.m. in what Anderson coach Tony Kays feels will be a major test for his team. “They have a new coach, a new system and they are playing well,” Kays says.

  • Anderson, Shelby need to rethink series scheduling

    SHELBYVILLE -- There was a strange sight at Shelby County High School on Saturday night.

    Empty seats. Lots of empty seats.

    There was a time when I thought you would have to worry about the heat index in January before you could walk in after tipoff and get a seat -- a decent one at that -- when Anderson County and Shelby County got together for their annual border love fest.

    So that bone-chiller Saturday night was just a figment of our imagination. It must have been at least 110 degrees outside.
