  • COLUMN: A year to celebrate

    The note Will Carlton handed me carried just a simple question.

    “Best two or three years in school history?” he asked back on Feb. 27.

    The question was a good one at a great time. A few feet from us, the Anderson County basketball teams, plural, were celebrating victories over Shelby County to win the 30th District tournaments. For the Bearcats, it was the second title in three years and the third in seven. But for the Lady Bearcats, it broke a 31-year drought.

  • EDITORIAL: Revisions needed for protection orders

    Let’s be clear about one thing here: the blame for the death of the 21-month-old child who was shot by his father last month rests solely with the man who pulled the trigger before killing himself.

    That was a tragedy of epic proportions for the family, and our hearts go out to each and every one of them.

    Left behind are myriad questions, including why the child was removed from his mother’s custody.

  • COLUMN: New columnist offers teenager’s view of Anderson County’s issues

    Welcome to the teen portion of The Anderson News.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. It’s something you will enjoy and something aside from what most of you would say is boring news you don’t care about.

    For this first column I’m going to introduce myself and tell you how I got this opportunity.

    My name is Brooke Tindall. I am a teenager who lives in the country part of Anderson County. I am a member of Freedom Baptist Church and love going to church and being a Christian.

  • Wife, husband indicted on meth charges

    A Lawrenceburg couple was indicted June 16 by the Anderson County Grand Jury on several methamphetamine charges.

    Jeanie Bruner, who was arrested Friday, is charged with first-degree manufacturing methamphetamine (enhanced), which is a class A felony; first-degree possession of a controlled substance (enhanced); first-degree possession of drug paraphernalia, which is a class A misdemeanor; and possession of a defaced firearm, which is a class A misdemeanor, according to Anderson County Sheriff’s Det. Bryan Taylor.

  • Cable sheds more jobs

    General Cable confirmed Tuesday morning that 23 employees will be laid off July 13.

    Once the county’s largest private employer with nearly 300 workers, General Cable has been shedding jobs for the past several years. This latest reduction, which includes 19 hourly employees, leaves the company with 103 workers, according to Lisa Lawson, General Cable’s vice president of corporate communications.

    The company has struggled in recent years as telecommunications companies move away from traditional cable products.

  • Murdered child's removal OK'd by Nelson Circuit Clerk's office

    (Calls made by the Lawrenceburg Police Department concerning the emergency protective order obtained by Timothy Frazier, father of 21-month-old Cole Lance Frazier, should begin playing.)

     

  • Trimble takes fair crown

    Only one word could sum up the way Samantha Trimble felt as she heard her name announced Monday night as this year’s Miss Lawrenceburg Fair and Horse Show: “Thrilled!”

    “I’m so excited,” said Trimble, the 18-year-old daughter of Kelley and Terry Trimble. “There were seven beautiful girls up there, and I’m thrilled to be chosen (as the winner).”

    Apparently, she was thrilled and thankful.

    The first thing she did after leaving the pageant stage was thank the judges.

  • Missing 16-year-old found

    A Lawrenceburg youth who was reported missing last week has been found, Lawrenceburg Police Department Sgt. Chad Powell announced Monday morning in a news release.

    Whittaker was reported missing June 12 by his mother, Kathy Pike, police said.

    No other information was immediately available.

  • Robinson named first team all-state

    A trip to Mississippi turned out to be more than B.J. Robinson expected last week.

    While helping former Anderson County track coach Travis Gay in his move to the Biloxi area, Robinson learned that he had been named Class AAA first team all-state pole vaulter by the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches’ Association.

    “We were on a basketball court and Coach Gay handed me a piece of paper. I didn’t even know they had all-state,” Robinson chuckled.
