Thanks also goes to The Anderson News and WLEX 18 for covering the event.

Philip Cooke is a native of London, England, and received U.S. citizenship two years ago. He is currently employed by the Anderson County school district in the transportation department.

    To the editor:
    As some of you may know, and now all of you that hear me speak will understand, I’m not from around here.

  • Five things your children may not recognize from 1973

    Because I work for an Anderson County institution that has been in operation since the late 1800s, I feel it’s my duty to appreciate the reporters, designers and proofreaders who came before me by taking a trip into The Anderson News archives.

    Well, two things.

  • Trying to explain the unexplainable

    Good people die nearly every day in Anderson County.
    From age to disease to accidents, people beloved by their friends and families are taken too soon no matter their age, leaving mourners in their wake and questions about why God takes them from our lives.
