    As Anderson County’s first win over Shelby County since the last century was slipping away with every possession, seventh-grader Eriel McKee decided enough was enough.

  • Ice storm gives way to brighter days

    Two weeks ago, the streets of Anderson County were paved in ice and snow after the worst winter storm in modern Kentucky history blew across the state.

    But you’d never know it just by stepping outside today.

    Temperatures have been in the 60s flirting with 70 since late last week, and all signs indicate that life is on its way back to normal — especially since power has been restored to all Anderson County residents.

  • City joins county in approving reverse 911

    The Lawrenceburg City Council voted Monday night to enter into an agreement with the county government to fund a system that can alert residents of pending emergencies.

    The reverse 911 system will be funded by tax money the county receives from residents who have landline phones.

    The county and city opted for a four-year contract with One Call Now, the same company currently used by Anderson County Schools to notify parents of school closings and other events.
